Psychic medium Quinn Thatcher would never be classified as normal. Just ask her mother. Her people-pleasing skills could use some work, which is why Quinn prefers working with the dead over the living. Ghosts take her as she is, but when people experience Quinn’s sharp tongue and sassy attitude, there is no in between. They either love her or want to throw her off the near ...more

Deadly Intent is the first book in the Linked Inc. series and you are introduced to the Thatcher sisters. This book was really fun to read and I really enjoyed getting to meet Quinn Thatcher. It was so funny that I didn’t want to put it down. I can’t wait to see what happens next with the next Thatcher sister.

The cursed emerald is returned home - will the curse now step forward.

A great fast paced read. Five sisters all with different psychic gifts. Quinn sees ghosts and to get rid of the Scottish ghost that is making her life miserable she agrees to go to Scotland and return a stolen emerald. The only problem is, the emerald is cursed and her visit to return it has already been foretold. Add in arson, attempted murder and two Scottish hunks with one feisty, short temper female to get a terrific read.

I have been provided with a copy of Deadly Intent by the author for an impartial review. This is the first book in the Linked Inc. series and the first book that I’ve read by this author and what a way to start off. I absolutely loved this book and author. It was hilarious and it totally shocked me by the end I thought I knew what was going on boy was I wrong. It was such an easy and short read that just had me wanting more. I can’t wait to read the next one in the series.

Quinn is spicy, saucy, and able to take care of herself. She returns a special relic back to Scotland and finds herself in the middle of a family curse. As she becomes a target, she saves and is saved by the clan's Laird.
An excellent read with smart, salty characters.

Deadly Intent

A determined Scot + a woman who's not = a story rather hot. Psychic Medium Quinn plans a quick trip to Scotland to return a missing gem to the Menzie family but experiences a delay that allows her to delve into an old prophesy. PG rated language, mystery, and humor combine to make for a sweet story most cozy readers will enjoy.

This is the first book I've read by this author and it will definitely not be the last. What a way to start a series I absolutely fell in love with these sisters they just had me from the get go. I can't wait to read more by this author.

I liked the book

I liked the book and even though I figured out early who was the bad guy but I thought somebody else was the accomplice. I thought the ghosts would have a bigger part in the story. I'm glad it ended the way it did.

Deadly Intent

It is a quick and easy read. There is a slight mystery, but nothing that can't be figured out. If you want a light, fluffy read to help ease you from a book hangover, I would recommend this. If you want a book with substance, this is not your book.

Cute & Funny

I read for enjoyment not to critique the writing style. A good read I couldn't put down till I finished. Will read the other stories in this series about the other sisters.

This book was thoroughly enjoyable. A take no prisoners psychic flies to Scotland to return a missing emerald which had caused a feud. Her time there is filled with intrigue and love. I look forward to reading more about Quinn's sisters.

Great Book

Loved this fresh and funny book. A sassy psychic and a hot highlander make for a very good time. I will be reading more by this author for sure.

Snarky can come across as annoying instead of funny, and in this case it just grated on my nerves. A DNF.

I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to get into and kept my interest as far as I did not guess who done it, like I usually can.

So much awesomeness!

I'm a huge fan of this author and I love the start of the new series. Quinn is such a wonderful character, full of spunk and wit. She doesn't swoon and drool over the hot guy and still has a brain when she's around him which is refreshing. I did love the banter between the two the mystery involved.

What a funny and quirky novella! I loved it and spent the last six hours reading cover to cover. I am a big fan of the 'Bennett Sisters' books as well as the Phantom series and extremely pleased there is a new series to start. Thank God the second book Psychic Link has been delivered to my kindle!

Quin Thatcher is a medium when she is made to return a stolen item back to a small scottish town and into the hands of the ancestors. What she thought would be a simple task turns into something a lot

Not many new series start with international intrigue, mock highlander sword reenactment on horseback in kilts commando style, a cursed emerald, and a snarky millionaire medium. This book had me at the first paragraph and I could not read fast enough when I hit the opera singing ghost (okay, maybe not singing but he attempted to...badly). I can't wait to see if the rest of this series lives up to the beginning. The Linked Inc. series looks to be one that's worth following..thanks.

A really interesting story told at a good pace . Very enjoyable with a feisty heroine by the name of Quinn. A couple of little twists in the story brought an interesting ending although I thought the action , especially romantic action got a litre frenetic towards the end. Very happy ending for the romantic genre . Well worth having a read

The girl to whom all ghosts talk goes to Scotland at the insistence of her personal ghost who stays in her house with her.

She goes to return a lost jewel and gets involved in an old family feud; is resented by a jealous would-be girlfriend; finds skulduggery at the castle; and finds outs what a true Scotsman wears under his kilt!

A fun read with lots of content.

Deadly Intent is the first book in Kate Allenton's new Linked Inc. series. It is a Paranormal romantic suspense novel. It is filled with suspense, romance, and witty humor. If you have not read one of Ms Allenton's books before, give this book a try. You won't regret it!
May 12, 2018 rated it really liked it
Quinn is one of the best heroines I've read lately. She's not a simpering damsel in distress, but a no nonsense, take charge, kick butt woman. Her snarky comments are impressive, but she's not hard or a man hater. Simply put; I'd like to be her friend.

Oh my Kate has done it again. The best first book of a new series. This is about a group of psychic sisters and the first was fast non stop start to finish. Getting book two now can't wait.

Can I just say I love hot men in kilts and there are a few in this book. This is a great read. I enjoyed the characters and storyline. Can't wait to read more about the sister's.

Kate has lived in Florida for most of her entire life. She enjoys a quiet life with her husband, Michael and two kids.

Kate has pulled all-nighters finishing her favorite books and also writing them. She says she'll sleep when she's dead or when her muse stops singing off key.

She loves creating worlds full of suspense, secrets, hunky men, kick ass heroines, steamy sex and oh yeah the love of a life
