L.L. Bartlett After a mugging in Manhattan leaves him with a broken arm and fractured skull, insurance investigator Jeff Resnick reluctantly agrees to recover at the home of his estranged half brother, Richard. At first, Jeff believes his graphic nightmares of murder are just the workings of his traumatized mind. But when a local banker is found dead, Jeff believes the attack has left him with a sixth sense--an ability to see murder before it happens.

Piecing together clues he saw in his dreams, Jeff attempts to solve the crime. His brother Richard is skeptical, but unsettling developments begin to forge a tentative bond. Soon, tings that couldn’t be explained by premonition come to light, and Jeff finds himself probing into dangerous secrets that touch his own traumatic past in wintry Buffalo--where a killer is ready to darken Jeff’s visions permanently.

Jeanie Jackson This one was really disturbing. I am glad I read it just before Room at the Inn came out. Just downloaded it and started reading a little while ago.

Jeanie Jackson Just finished Room. Enjoyed it except for missing Brenda.

I see the cozy in the publishers comment, but what is wrong with that. I describe this series as more than a cozy mystery, less that high suspense. I can see that that is not a great description but it is a level I enjoy. A real mystery with real characters and real relationships. The things that make for a great read.

Now I have to write a real review and post it in a few real places. Goodreads, B&N, Amazon.

Barbara I felt it was a well done book. I am not sure if it fits the cozy genre, but it was somewhere in between mystery and thriller. I found it a light read and enjoyable. I will likely read the next installments.

Moonlight I really liked this one. If you are looking for a story about the lady next door who stumbles into a murder, this book isn't it. The story centers around a pair of brothers, one of whom is the victim of a violent assault. Because the main character was an insurance investigator before his accident, it feels like it straddles the line between cozy and detective fiction. But I mean that in the most positive sense. It gives the story line a wider places to go and makes it harder for the reader to predict. I liked that it was a little different without being "gritty" and too dark.
