A decent read.
Good writing. Irritating heroine. Meh hero. Insta-love. So-so plot.
4* 'Fifty Shades Didn't Write it First' Stars
ME: "Hey, this is just like Fifty-Shades of Grey!!"I know, I know… It seems as if EVERY book these days is being compared to the Fifty phenomenon. But to me, Fifty is just recycled material and this book is yet more proof. Romance authors have been writing about super sexy, powerful, rich billionaires with an obsessive streak for a ‘mousy’ heroine for YEARS! Tortured heroes? Also been done, done, and do ...more
YOU: "Noooo, seriously?!!"
ME: "Yes, really!!"
3 1/2 Stars - Sweet Smexy Simple Suspense
Well, it was entertaing and I'm not complaining; this is a sweet thrilling romance with a good crime plot. Not an amazing great novel from Linda Howard but undoubtedly good enough.
Manhattan, New York City, U.S.
Paris Sweeney, or just Sweeney as she prefers, is a talented painter in her early thirties. Sweeney like to love alone, and don't want any relationship, her artwork i ...more
This one is coming in at between 3 and 4 stars. There was something missing and I don’t know what.
”Honey, you don’t have any idea how I look when I’m satisfied.”
Sweeney is independent, dresses how she likes, doesn’t care about class or status. She thinks she is immune to men – until suddenly she realizes that she is not. Especially where Richard Worth is concerned.
Touch of the paranormal.
He bent his head and kissed her sulky mouth
Sex scenese were few and far between.

Classic Linda Howard! I love this book.
Paris Sweeney who prefers to go by Sweeney is a talented painter, who is pretty content with her life in New York. Although things has been a little weird in the last year, with her dreams becoming so vivid and colourful it seems real and her sudden attraction to Richard Worth is also completely out of character for her.
And when it turns out the murder scenes she’s suddenly started painting in her sleep are real, Sweeney’s life is changed forever. The o...more

In the mood for some Linda Howard, thought I'd revisit an old favorite....it's a oldie but definitely a goodie.
I love both the H&h in this book and Richard is probably one of my fave LH hero's. Paris Sweeny is a clairvoyant artist and Richard is a wealthy businessman who's estranged socialite wife owns the art gallery where Sweeny displays her work.
Richard and Sweeny are wildly attracted to one another after a chance encounter they start spending ti ...more

Richard is AMAZING!... *sigh*
..and Sweeney has got style, a no-nonsense attitude, honesty, and integrity. Absolutely adored her character.
There have only been two of her books which I have no reservations about. Veil of Night and this one. This book centers around Paris, an artist who has strange psychic abilities. When she approaches a red light, it turns green. Her potted plants thrive regardless of how she treats them. She knows the ...more
Sweeney is a gifted artist who suddenly started seeing spirits. If that wasn’t freaky enough she also have affinity towards plants and traffic signals goes green for her! Like always...! She was funny, honest and a little weird.

Now You See Her is one of my all time favourite books, and it is one of those books I revist again and again, especially at times I need to get out of a book funk or to comfort myself when I need a pick-me-up. I am a huge huge fan of Linda Howard’s, but there is something really magical about this book especially where it stands out among her backlist, and most recently I reread it again for the 5837327 time, and I decided to write an Oldie but a ...more
Sweeney's able to see ghosts. But with her ability, comes the side effect; she felt bone-chilling cold all the time. Especially when she's in trance and starts painting unconsciously. But everything slowly get better when Richard enters the picture. Sweeney's been crushing on Richard since forever and now, apparently Ri ...more

Sweeney’s life changed when a month ago she started seeing ghosts and her artistic endeavors started evolving. Moving to NY for change of scene, she soon is plagued by somnambulence and nightmares.. and realizes she’s painting murders.
Enthralling , fast past thriller mixed with intriguing characters, a smoking hot couple, murder mystery (which can be predicted if you pay attention), haunting scenes an ...more
Now You See Her bears a strikingly similarity to Twilight. Not because there is a disco ball sparkly vampire anywhere in sight, but instead, because, like Twilight, the voice is engaging, that of a natural story teller, and it kept me reading long after I'd lost any interest in the characters.
Also, like Twilight, it features a "Rich, powerful male sweeps into the heroine's life, savi ...more
That being sad, I was not feeling the magic in this book the same way that I have in the past. For me, it’s one of her weaker ones, which is a shame, because the plot of so intriguing and has so much potential. But the characters, ironically, ruined it.
Sweeny is, sadly, one of the most annoying fem ...more
This book has been on my to-read list for over a year, but I never got around to getting a print copy. When it was available for a good price as an audiobook on audible, I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I listened to the audiobook instead of reading the book. While I would have liked the book in print, I can't help but think the narrator increased my enjoyment quite a bit. Narrator Laura Le ...more
I read this several years ago and felt it was pretty good, but it was easy to put down when I needed to do other things. I didn’t feel as emotionally invested as I did with other books by this author. But I recently listened to the audiobook and felt very different. It was very enjoyable. So I upped my rating from 4 stars to 4 .
It is about an artist who paints psychic visions and a businessman in process of getting a divorce. They fal ...more
