This is the first Lamb novel I've read. It's the second in a series. I don't normally have a problem reading out of order, but I felt like I missed some of the backstory when it came to the two main character's relationship. I wonder if Lamb purposely dropped us into their relationship as it was in progress, or if I missed out on key things because I didn't read the first book?

I really like psychic novels. Of the paranormal elements, those are my favorite. You can keep your vampires and shifters

I knew it was going to be bad when the romantic male lead was described as wearing cargo shorts. It was all downhill from there.

I was not particularly fond of True Vision when I read it last year. As a result, I sorta rolled my eyes when I saw books 2 and 3 on the RITA nominee list. However, what kind of ex-Romance Expert would I be if I didn't read whatever I could from the nominee list? So while my expectations and enthusiasm were low, I actually thought this was a decent romantic suspense.

Firstly, True Colors is very dependent on True Vision. There is very little relationship development between Alex and John because

4.5 I hope Sam's story is even better

True Colors is the second book in Lamb’s new trilogy based around three psychic/empathetic sisters. The first, True Vision, was about Charlie and a new cop Noah. We are also introduced to Charlie’s sister Alex and their good friend (another cop) John Logan. I recommend reading this series in order because the characters and plots build upon one another. We get to see the beginning of Alex and Logan’s relationship in TV… which by the way if you don’t read the

True Colors by Joyce Lamb
Suspense/Paranormal Romance –Jan. 4th, 2011
4 stars

Alex Trudeau, a local photojournalist, discovered that she has emphatic stigmata after her a near-death experience awoke her latent ability. Upon skin-to-skin contact with another being, she will literally live through their worst memory, often with physical injuries from the event branded on her skin. Alex does not want this ability. Living happily with her menagerie of rescued dogs, she just wants to focus on her work a

First off, I'm just going to say that this series is definitely one of my favorites of the year. Joyce Lamb is an author whose books are on my automatic "to be read". I don't care what genre she writes, I will be a lifelong fan. I can identify with the characters, the writing style blows me away in every book and I always find myself thinking of her books long after they have been read.

Alex's character appealed to me immediately with her love of abused animals. It takes a special woman to be abl

Alex Trudeau coded DOA at the end of True Visions when she took a bullet meant for her sister Charlie Trudeau, but was brought back 3 times. She survived death but brought something back with her. Alex discovers she has the empathic ability that her sister Charlie has but with a twist. She not only experiences what has happened to others, she also mirrors their injuries.

When John Logan came to Lake Avalon he just wanted to forget

Shelves: free-ebook, c, w-az
The romance is pretty much a done deal by the halfway point and even during the first half it didn’t seem like the focus of the book. The bad guy’s POV takes up half the book so there is no mystery. Basically, the book is one big wait for the meeting between the psycho killer and Logan. Alex’s new ability is never fully investigated. I wanted to see more discussion between her and her mom. I feel like the author is leaving all that for the final book of the trilogy. For some readers the explicit ...more

I love everything Joyce Lamb writes. True Vision, the first book in this trilogy. really captured my attention so I eagerly devoured this one, Book #2. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I love it so much I just read it again. Lamb very deftly handled a psychic ability that our heroine, Alex, doesn't want ad has trouble handling, especially when it makes her relive people's worst moment. If that isn't bad enough, a crazed serial killer is after her. Mix the tension, the world of psychic abilities a ...more

True Colors was much better than the first book in this series. We get to know both main characters, and it is easy to connect with them. Like her sister, Alex is an empath. Her empathy is much stronger than her sister's, however, which creates physical as well as emotional issues that she can't control. The male protagonist, John, has caught the attention of a serial killer from his past, and as a result, everyone he cares about, especially Alex, is in danger. As in the first book, True Vision, ...more
Leigh Verrill-Rhys
A harrowing suspense / romance / crime novel, wonderfully executed by the author of True Vision. Joyce Lamb makes your blood curdle at the thought-processes of her villains.

True Colors doesn't let up with the true horror of revenge-fueled crime. The hideously distorted sense of justice in the mind of Butch McGee. Like her sister, Charlie, Alex Trudeau has astonishing powers of empathy but hers leave physical evidence. Butch's childhood traumas leave more than physical evidence on the psyche of

1.5 -- 2D characters, never got into the random side quest, too dark & realistic in villainy for my liking.
The 1st in the series was definitely "better."

Actually 3.5

Excellent writing: clean, clear, fast-paced with good flow.
Point originality -- not so much, but entertaining enough that it kept me reading.

A good read! The female lead is Alex Trudeau and she is empathic (she can see / feel a person's most recent traumatic event when she touches them).
