4.5*! I was pleasantly surprised to discover such a fun read from the first chapter. Mystery, suspense and intrigue combined with the youthful and gay outward nature and psychic powers of one of the characters got me hooked from the beginning. Fierce, independent detective Moe and dashing and daring Stacie make up an excellent partnership. The two protagonists are thrown in together in a wide scope of challenging and bizarre circumstances. Fast paced, with some edge of seat scenes, it’s a great ...more

The opening was descriptive, a bit terrifying and most of all powerful. While my brow furrowed with anger at the scene. How could you do that to another human being? I had two questions. Who was Nadia? Why was this happening to her?

This short story was about Moe, a private detective, and her “gift”. A gift that allowed her to be an asset to those who needed her special brand of assistance. A curse to her when she couldn’t shake the after effects. After using her gift, she has to recite a mantra

A slow burn start leading to a conflagration ending

The story starts by introducing Moe Watkins, the main character. She is a PI with the ability to see others' memories, even for a few hours after death. Since this is the first book in the series, the author needed to do some world building and develop the abilities and personalities of the characters. Once you get thru the initial descriptions, the plot takes some unexpected twists. Some of the characters are quite different from their public p

I received an ARC from the author at my request and this is my honest opinion. This is the first in the new Wakins and Howe mystery series and I think the series is going to be a good one. My only problem with this first book is that nothing was fully developed. There was even a major event that occurred and then seemed to be forgotten about; never mentioned again. I really like the two protagonists and the touch of the supernatural is not heavy-handed. All in all, it is a good story but I felt ...more

I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This was a quick read that is center around Moe and her psychic abilities that she use as a PI. She has a partner Stacie who is a former child star. The two go on a case of a cheating husband but turns out to be a lot more then that. Don't want to say too much. Does makes me want to read other book by this author. Moe is a character that is hard to forget regardless of her brothers looking down on for her choice of jobs. I think I want ...more

A fun read about a PI (Moe) with a supernatural power and her neighbor Stacie, a former soap-opera starlet, as her witty partner. As opposite as they both seem they're perfect for eachother. The first job is to follow the husband of a very wealthy wife because she wants him to be found cheating on her. Not everything however is as it seems....
I got an ARC from the author for an honest review.

It grabbed me

I enjoyed this book with its interesting slant on a detective/mystery type story. The intro to the next book left me looking forward to reading that one as well. The two main characters who are both women from different backgrounds make a good team.

Good read

I enjoyed this book much more than I expected. It had a great story line, and entertainment value. There are several editorial mistakes that take away from the enjoyment, but that's just me. I still recommend this book and author.

I absolutely LOVED the two main characters. They have great personalities and I cannot wait to see more of their adventures! I enjoyed the fast pace of this book and yet there was enough detail to visualize everything going on. Great start to a new series!

WOW! The author hit the ball outta the park with this one! 'Grab' by Jeff Elkins is wholly original, utterly compelling, filled with depth and humanity, and just absolutely brimming with suspense! The touch of supernatural within these pages is believeable and beautifully done. If you want a book that will pull you in from the first page and not just hold your interest, but spike it throughout and until the very end, this is the one! The main character "Moe" is impossible not to like, and is so ...more
