Don't do what I did (if you can help it) and drag this read out for a week. I'm sure this book would've been a whole lot more enjoyable if I could've made some time to read it consistently. I kept having to put it down, pick it up, put it down...it was hard to keep the tension going reading it that way. However, once I was able to devote more time to it, it got harder to put it down, and the book took off for me. The first 100 pages are so are used to set up the story, and set up the series, so...more

Yet another highly enjoyable romantic suspense read by Leslie Parrish (aka Leslie Kelly). I really loved her Black CATs trilogy and was looking forward to the first book in this new series. Parrish didn't disappoint. This book was almost a 5-star read.

Series Note:
First book in Parrish's new light paranormal romantic suspense series (Extrasensory Agents) about investigators that possess various 6th sense abilities.

Summary:
Lexie Nolan is a reporter in a small Georgia town who starts investigating...more

Cold Sight
4 Stars

Girls are disappearing in the seemingly quiet town of Granville, Georgia, but the only one interested is reporter Lexie Nolan. After another girl is abducted, Lexie turns to disgraced psychic, Aidan McConnell for help and the two soon find themselves embroiled in a web of deceit that is about to hit a little too close to home…

Well-written characters, a solid romance and an intense suspense plot.

Lexie and Aidan's push/pull vibe is very appealing and their interactions are believ...more

In a nutshell: The thriller aspect of the book was a rush. Romantic aspect, OK. I'm glad the RRRC group picked this; I probably wouldn't have found it otherwise.

Allow me to begin by saying that if one were to ask me whether I'd recommend this book, I'd suggest reading this book more for the suspense aspect than the romance.

Now that that's out of the way. :o) This book follows multiple perspectives of the residents in the sleepy town of Granville Georgia: chiefly those of clairvoyant Aiden McConn...more

Great way to start a series. This was really well written. Had me hooked from page one. Love the mystery aspect and man I was so wrong on who the baddie was. Darn it! lol Actually I am glad I was wrong cause I kinda liked this person. This book had truly sick people in it. Talk about passing down your sickness to your children. It was disturbing. That was just part of the mystery. There was also the serial killer aspect as well. One leads into the other . The H/h were so great together. Loved th...more

Granville, Georgia is plagued by a serial killer…Or is it? When reporter Lexie Nolan ran the story of several teenage girl gone missing, she was shut down, and almost lost her job, while the chief of police and all the prominent citizens claimed the missing teens were just runaways. Especially since they were from the “bad part of town”.

Well, the Ghoul, as some have dubbed the presumed serial killer has struck again. This time kidnapping a girl from the bad part of town going to school in the go...more

Don't you hate it when an author has a great storyline to work with but just doesn't quite tap in to make it amazing? That's how I feel about Cold Sight, the new release by Leslie Parrish. And while this book held great potential with plot and characters, it quite frankly bombed for me after the prologue.

In the prologue, the serial killer is telling bedtime stories, Wes Craven style, to his latest teen victim who he has chained to a bed in a dark, dirty basement. This sets up the latest abducti...more

This was an awesome kick off to the series. I thought that Aidian and Lexi were hot together. Aidian used to find missing people and got burned badly and a child was lost. So he became a recluse. Lexi is an upfront and honorable reporter determined to tell the truth and got burned. Now they have to come together on common ground before more young girls are lost. I love these types of paranormal books, with no werewolves, vampires or changelings. Not that I don't like those as well. I also liked...more

Very good romantic suspense with a touch of paranormal

The suspense/mystery was well done. I would have liked a little more focus on the romance, but overall it was an entertaining read. I liked the main characters and was especially impressed by the brave teenager who was kidnapped. What she went through was difficult to read about.

I like the cover design and how they actually picked a guy that looks like the hero in the book. But their marketing department must have a total 'cheesemiester' work...more

In the last week I have read a few clunkers. I've been seeing Leslie Parish's Extrasensory Agents series popping up on my Goodreads friend's feed and decided to give it a shot.

Book one is Cold Sight. It is based around Aiden McConnell, a psychic who can connect with people he has had contact with to see, hear, or smell through their senses. It is not always in real time, or real at all. He can also connect to them through their dreams.

Aiden has some issues letting go of guilt from problems wit...more

As much as former psychic investigator Aidan hates reporters - having been 'tried' in the Press for a mistake in his last case - when his small town exile is invaded by local reporter Lexie - who has suffered her own disgrace at the hands of her fellow journalists - Aidan finds himself unable to resist Lexie's plea for help finding a missing girl - and they soon find themselves on the trail of a serial killer who has been behind the disappearances of a suspiciously larger number of 'runaways'.

Paranormal Romance – July 6, 2010

Aidan McConnell, a physic detective, left Savannah for Granville after a botched investigation that left his reputation and conscience in tatters. Unfortunately, his wish of living a peaceful life was not to be. Alexa Nolan, a small time reporter in Granville, believes that there’s a serial killer at large, abducting and killing girls from the poor side of town. When another girl goes missing, Alexa has to...more

This is my first read by Leslie Parrish. Though her previous trilogy got a lot of buzz, I wasn't in the mood for RS at that time, so I skipped them. If they're half as good as this one was, I'm truly sorry for it now.

I had major reservations going in because the heroine is a reporter and we all know I have major reporter issues. But it was almost like Parrish heard all my bitching complaints and customized her reporter to my tastes. She wasn't TSTL, or more interested in advancing her career tha...more

Psychic detection is almost at the bottom of my list of paranormal genres (a strong aversion to the hundreds of fraudulent psychic detectives out there, and the tabloid press and TV channels that feed off them) so I'm not sure why I decided to try Cold Sight. Maybe it was a positive review of the second book in the series.

I surprised myself by not only deciding to start with the first in the series -- on the optimistic assumption I'd get around to No. 2 -- but also by actually finishing it in tw...more
Sandra
A very well written book with interesting characters. The emotionally damaged physic and the almost discredited female reporter. The sleepy small town in Georgia with everything on the surface looking just peachy. LOL.

However, this book just isn't for me. The crimes were just too gritty and ugly and the romance between our H/h just not enough to compensate me for my time. If I want realistic crime I only have to watch the TV news, I don't want to read about it.

Sadly, whilst I really like the pre...more

I loved this book! It was a really well done story all around. It had the right amount of romance, suspense, mystery, and crime. The author also gives you the story from all the characters point of view. I still didn't know who the kidnapper was until it was revealed and it kept me in suspense the whole time. I am looking forward to the next book in the series!
Tammy
This was a FANTASTIC book! The edge of you seat excitement was incredible! It had all the elements. I laughed , I cried at times I was scared to turn off the lights. The romance was very sexy and sweet at the same time. I highly , highly reccommend this book.
Pamela(AllHoney)
The first book in the Extrasensory Agents series. This was alright for me but I felt it lacked something. I just didn't feel the romance in this one. The story itself was good and I really was interested in the who dunnit part.
Shelly
Great storyline. I didn't fully connect with the characters, but I enjoyed the read so I didn't mind.

I am not sure why this one didn't impress me. It had a lot of things going for it but I just wasn't into it.

Nothing wrong with the writing, I just couldn't get into the story.

Anita Truong
Well written with well-developed characters. The story wasn't bad either. Aiden is the typical brooding male, but Lexie is a breath of fresh air (blunt, head-strong, no filter... SO not the usual girl-next-door type); so she was a lot of fun to follow. The rest of the characters were their own even if they didn't particularly stand-out too much, but still well-developed.

The psychic/paranormal aspects were pretty back-seat for a story surrounding a group of psychic investigators, so there wasn't...more

Lexie and Aidan are both residents of Granville, Georgia, a small town whose population of young, teenage girls is rapidly diminishing.

Both of them are recovering from being completely tarred and feathered in the media. Lexie, a reporter, forced by the Chief of Police and the owner of her paper to print a complete retraction of her articles regarding a possible serial killer, and Aidan, a psychic, lambasted in the Savannah media for being wrong about his last case, a missing young boy never foun...more

Leslie Parrish also writes as Leslie Kelly, and I was super impressed with her Blaze offering, "Slow Hands," so I decided to check out her RS offerings too. This is on Overdrive in e-book from my library which made it a win/win. She's a strong writer with great POV characterization--this novel features multiple secondary characters, each with a unique voice. Aidan is a psychic whose ESP abilities have allowed him to solve past crimes--but also led to one notable failure which has him living like...more

This book marks a first for me; a fictional reporter that I didn't find myself wanting to throttle. In Lexie, there was the sense of urgency and drive to get the story. However, the circumstances allowed her to care for the human side of things as well. It wasn't JUST getting the story. It wasn't JUST 'the public's right to know'. I found myself truly loving her character.

Aidan's too, but what's not to love about a reclusive psychic who has a chip on his shoulder and feels about reporters the wa...more

OMG! This is the best mystery/suspense book I have read since I found Patricia Cornwells Kay Scarpetta series. And this was even better because it is a romance book!

I read it in one sitting, I just couldn´t put it down. Cold Sight is a well written, thrilling, dark story with a believable love story intertwined.

Lexie works as a reporter in a idyllic small town but when she starts to dig to deep in the disappearances of teenage girls from the wrong side of town, she get stopped. When new evidenc...more

Aidan McConnell is a psychic who's been burned when an old case leads to the death of a child. Withdrawing from Savannah, he settled in quiet Granville, GA, cutting himself off from everything and everyone who could remind (or blame) him of his failure.

But Granville is far from idyllic. Teenage girls from the wrong side of town are going missing and no one seems interested. Except Lexie Nolan a reporter for the Granville Daily. Sadly, her determination to bring this series of disappearances is d...more

Aidann McConnell is a psychic who left his town of Savannah after his attempt to help find a missing boy went very wrong. Although he has helped many people in the past, this one failure has tainted all of his successes - especially after reporters turned the story into a negative media frenzy, destroying his reputation. In the town of Granville, Lexie Nolan has also experienced her share of disappointment. A journalistic investigation that she started concerning some missing teenage girls was s...more
