I enjoyed this debut cozy with a psychic twist. We all like heroes, and the protagonist has a special gift...she can communicate with people who are hurt or lost and help lead rescuers to them. She has a beautiful, special cat who helps ground her anxiety and fear when she has her visions. Likeable cast of characters. I’m looking forward to reading the next story.

Cozy mysteries use to be my favorite genre to read, and for the last year or so I was having problems figuring out why I haven't been able to get into them as much as before. Kathi Daley seems to be a very well liked author, and I have to admit reading the story I could see why people like her--The characters are interesting, different and in this story the setting was what I wanted to read about (learn something about).

It was also with this cozy that I had some problems, probably not what most

An emotional beginning to an exciting new series. You are introduced to Harmony who has always lived in Rescue, Alaska and hopes to one day open up a rescue center for animals in need in her area. Harmony has been blessed with a gift or in some cases a curse when it comes to finding those who are lost in the wilderness. The losses hurt but that doesn't detour her from helping those in need. When movie star Harley Medford comes to town looking for answers into how his best friend from high school ...more

Very good start to this new series. Loved the mc's large menagerie of rescue animals. Some really great secondary characters. However, the setting of Alaska in the winter...brrr. I was overly chilled just reading about their constant snow storms! Looking forward to a future book being set in the summer.
In questa nuova serie della Daley sono rimasta colpita dal fatto che l'elemento paranormale è molto più forte di quanto capiti in altre sue serie. La protagonista può, infatti, collegarsi telepaticamente con persone in stato di necessità. Mi ci è voluto un po' a farci l'abitudine... La storia non è male, anche con l'agente segreto che compare a un certo punto e con l'attore famoso che risulta essere molto alla mano (vecchi clichés entrambi, ma funzionano). Mi piace che la protagonista adori così ...more

I enjoyed Kathi Daley’s Finding Justice. It is the first book in the Rescue Alaska Mystery series.

I live in Alaska and I thought the author did a good job depicting life here. I live in Southeast and Rescue is set farther north so a bit of a difference weather wise. The dangers of cold, snow and wildlife, though, are well known throughout the state. They are a part of everyday life no matter where you live. Pretty much, unless you live close to Anchorage or in Anchorage, your choices of enterta

“Finding Justice” earns 5/5 Psychic Visions of Entertainment!

Kathi Daley introduces us to her newest heroine Harmony Carson working tirelessly to live her dream by building an animal shelter in Rescue, Alaska, but the age-old Catch-22 has reared its head: need a grant approved to build the facility, but can’t get the grant unless she has the facility. It’s worse than disappointing, and while trying to come up with her next move with BFF Chloe Rivers, one she isn’t thrilled to consider, her call

Rescue, Alaska, is a small town in Northern Alaska, known for its hiking and skiing. It is also known as having one of the best search and rescue teams. Harmony Carson is a volunteer who has the gift of being able to "see" the people she is meant to rescue, though not all of them live. She is also trying to start up an animal rescue and lives in a rustic cabin with lots of her rescued animals. This is an exciting book set in a very small town.

A new series by best selling author Kathi Daley, I feel is going to be a smash hit. Well written, intriguing, a page turner you can't put down. Harmony and her friends live in Rescue, Alaska, they have jobs, but also have a rescue team. Love an old friend comes to town with a request that Harmony decides to help with, because he is going to help the town by donating an animal shelter. Find out if they solve the mystery and who a surprise visitor is.

Another masterful series starter by Kathi Daley

This is the first book in a new series by Kathi Daley, one of my favorite authors. In this series we are introduced to Harmony Carson, a young woman who is able to connect with people in danger by psychic channeling. She and a group of her friends, including her brother-in-law, Jake are part of a search and rescue team. Set in cold Rescue, Alaska there are many opportunities for this team to go into action.

I am sorry that I didn't get around to reading this series sooner. A unique setting with the main character having a unique quality. Harmony who volunteers for the search and rescue team has the ability to sense when certain people are in trouble. I found this totally interesting and liked how Harmony didn't always see it as a gift, but she deals with it and has the support of the rest of the team.

Another new series from one of my favorite cozy authors. This one has a touch of the paranormal to it, as the main character, Harmony, tends to have a psychic connection to the people who need to be rescued. As far as I am aware, this is a unique character and plot idea.

Harmony is also a huge animal lover and is working to set up a new facility in order to help shelter/adopt more animals. I love her passion for animals, as well as her compassion for people.

I had been looking forward to this new series from Author Kathi Daley.
An unusual setting for a series, a small Alaskan community, where people have to rely on each other to survive, and where the residents have to come up with their own entertainment much of the year. Add in some loveable animals and people who care about them and you have my interest.
Kathi also slides in some unusual psychic abilities. I am open to the possibilities.

December in Rescue, Alaska might not be the place I would choose to live, but this first novel in Kathi Daley's new series certainly makes me want to visit! Finding Justice introduces likable characters who are as close as family and the beautiful, yet wild and occasionally deadly, and a plot that sets the stage for future mysteries.

An interesting new series from Kathi Daley that I have been anticipating. A little more intense than her usual, suspenseful from the start and heartbreaking as well. The book mainly deals with the murder of a local man with tidbits of other rescues that Harmony is involved in due to her gift. The story is just as well-written as all of her others and filled with that wonderful sense of friends and community that she portrays so well in her books. With her vividly descriptive writing style, you f ...more

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.
