Nancy Bush’s Blind Spot tells us about Psychologist Claire Norris’s newest case to solve. Her new client is the victim of assault and murder at a rest stop, where one person, Rafe is left dead, and the unidentified woman with him is left catatonic after her attacker attempts to take her baby from the womb. At the same time, Claire is having trouble getting past her last case, and things are made worse when it becomes hopelessly entangled with the new case because of the interference of Detective Langdon Stone.
Thinking the blame lies with Claire, Detective Stone holds a grudge against her for the death of his younger sister Melody. One of Claire’s patients, the paranoid schizophrenic Heywood Marsden II, brutally murdered Melody and attacked Claire as well. Claire would do anything for her patients even if it means losing her job, she also feels responsible for Melody’s death and blames it on her failure as a psychologist.
Stone, however much he dislikes Claire, is forced to make an unlikely team with Claire as they search for the resolution to the unknown woman’s case. And as they progress though their investigation, Stone realizes that he’s falling for the one person he believes he is supposed to hate. Claire Norris. Will he realize his error in blaming Claire and fall back on his feelings? Or will he reject what he feels and continue to hold a grudge against her? Will they find the answers they’re looking for? Or will their case be left unsolved?
I enjoyed the story but did not like the use of all the medical terms. It made it difficult to like. It is not a keeper for me at all.
