Haunting and utterly mesmerizing, this delicately interwoven tale is a deliciously addictive treat!

Beautifully interweaving classy contemporary fiction with a paranormal twist this supremely singular book oozes originality and uniqueness. Like nothing I have encountered before, Evonne Wareham has created something enchanting and quite extraordinary. Madison Abi’s gift of being able to read minds is certainly an interesting element within this atypical novel - being both a blessing and a curse.

A romantic suspense with a paranormal twist, but when I say paranormal, I don't mean vampires or shape shifters or such. I mean...mind reading.

The heroine can read minds and when she meets this homeless and bedraggled man in an alley and feels a weird connection to him, she thinks she's hit the jackpot with a perfect subject to experiment on and gets a lot more than she bargained for. * I appreciate this homeless man twist. Parts here made me think about how quickly we judge others by their appe

Distinctive and unconventional this is a savvy supernatural/ sci-fi romance with a difference. No vampires or werewolves but mind reading experiments, laboratories and scientists somewhat reminiscent of Fringe (the tv series)

A tightly-plotted romantic thriller simmering with heart-pounding tension, pulse-racing danger and sizzling seduction, Out of Sight, Out of Mind is the second mesmerizing novel from the UK’s answer to Karen Rose: Evonne Wareham.

Dr. Madison Albi is no ordinary scientist. She has a special talent for reading other people’s minds and delving into their thoughts. Walking back home after a night out, Madison stumbles upon a homeless man with whom she forms an instant connection. Beguiled and fascinat

Madison is drawn to this connection and so she brings him home, desperate to make the most of his connection to use her skills on him.

I had wanted to read this book, ever since I heard the premise. Reading minds would be the most amazing skill to have, and the main character Madison can do it with ease. The book is told from alternate points of view in third person, with other minor characters sporadically interspersed. The best way that I can describe this book is a strong contemporary with hints of paranormal in it. If I didn’t know better, after reading this I would think th

Out of Sight, Out of Mind was a strange read for me. I didn't really like it, was constantly like what is going on? But at the same time understanding, but not understanding why I care or why anything was happening. It was just...missing something.

Madison is a mind-reader of sorts and she works in this lab and the book starts off with her walking home and feeling a power down this dark alley. She needs to find it and see if it is what she has been looking for her whole life, if this power is wha

Madison Albi has a special ability, and not only being a scientist but she can read minds.

J does not know who he is, he can’t even remember his name but once he meets Madison things might change. Can she being back his past and help him? Does she getting more into J’s head and find things that maybe she did not want to find or things that might have ne ...more

This was the second book I’d read by Ms. Wareham and, like the first one, it began with lots of suspense that had me turning the pages. I like the way that she built upon the suspense and made me continue to guess what was going on with Jay. I really did think he was just going to be a homeless person who’d suffered a memory loss due to a beating. However, as the story unfolded it seemed obvious that he was somehow part of some deeper mystery and maybe even something sinister. The pacing was spo ...more

WOAH, I was totally not expecting that.

This book promised me ROMANCE, MYSTERY, PARANORMAL- mind reading, and SECRETS. Boy did it deliver on all counts, especially the Secrets aspect of things.
There were secret organisations, totally huge, unexpected mysteries about who Jay really was. I was trying to guess the outcome of this book and what secrets Jay really held but the truth was way, way off the assumptions I'd made.

The Heroine of this book 'Madison' was really quite refreshing. A strong cha

I read this as part of a library book club. If I'm honest the blurb on the back sounded a bit naff, but I tried to free my mind from all expectations. Although entirely based around mind reading and therefore completely unrealistic (in my view) by the end I did sort of care for the characters. Sort of. I don't think that the sex scenes added much and I actually felt that their inclusion made the relationship between Maddison and Jay less meaningful. I read the second half quickly not because I w ...more

I have to admit I was a little bit nervous about reading Evonne Wareham’s second novel having loved Never Coming Home (one of my Top 20 Fiction Reads for 2013). Would it live up to my expectations?

Out of Sight Out of Mind gets off to an exciting start … no preamble but straight into the action! Madison Albi just couldn’t resist the call of another mind … on the edge of a dark and dirty alleyway. ‘J’ is in bad physical shape. Madison just has to take him home so that she can see if the connection

I got this book from a free Candis giveaway, and for a free book it was okay. It was a reasonably entertaining story. But to me, it felt a little bit like a sofa bed. A sofa bed is both a sofa and a bed, but isn't very comfortable in either form. Likewise, this book was a thriller and a romance, but failed to really make me believe either one. It was alright.

My one note to the author, and especially to the editors/publishers: the word "breath" is not a verb. I expect basic spelling errors in a

I absolutely loved reading this book and am hoping very much so there is a second book.

I could not put this book down, it was full of suspense/romance/love and more. Mind reading was very intriguing and absolutely wonderful.

Science Fiction, romance, conspiracy/mystery. It's a fast paced, good read. It falls just short of a 5 (amazing) rating.
I look forward to reading more by this author.

For a change thought I'd give a fiction novel a go as it was on bargain and said 'award winning author' on the cover. Oh dear, what a dreadful mistake. Sorry, thought it read like an afternoon satellite TV station movie that went through all the predictable dross all those movies seem to be. This 'soccer mom' type fiction just is not me. Oh well, will look for something darker, deeper, and delicious. ...more
