Imprints - Book Review

It didn't take me very long to get through Rachel Ann Nunes's latest book, Imprints, once I started. As is true with most, if not all, of Nunes's previous books, the action is fairly fast-paced, the writing style is clean and easy to read, and the pages almost turn themselves.

This is the first paranormal romance Deseret Book has put out, and I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love to read books that have a sci-fi, fantasy, or paranormal twist, but I also LOVE to read a clean book that isn't going to jump out at me with bad language and graphic scenes. So Imprints was a perfect read for me.

Here's a little blurb about the book:  
Sometimes what you can't see means everything

A young woman is missing. In desperation, her parents turn to Autumn Rain for help. Autumn reads imprints—emotions left mysteriously behind on certain treasured objects. But is this ability a blessing or a curse?

Sometimes Autumn isn’t sure—her life has become far from normal—but for people who have missing loved ones, her talent might mean the difference between life and death. Even the infuriating Detective Martin has asked for Autumn’s help, though at times she feels more like a suspect than a consultant. Too often Autumn finds herself retreating to her antiques shop and the company of her best friend, Jake Ryan, to avoid notice.

But soon more than one woman is missing, and Autumn teams up with private eye Keefe McConnell to investigate their disappearance. Keefe’s attraction to her is a pleasant change from Jake’s frustrating offers of friendship, but once Autumn takes that first step, she sets in motion a series of events that risk not only her own life but the lives of those she cares about most.
 Imprints is a spin-off of one of Nunes's recent books, Eyes of a Stranger. You don't need to read that book to enjoy this one, though - but I do always love how Nunes takes a more minor character from one book and tells their story in the next.
