This story by Kat Martin deals with the subject of out of body experiences. It is a much-debated subject and I felt that the author handled it extremely well.


Kate is shot in the head in a drive-by shooting and during an operation to remove the bullet she ‘dies’ for a few minutes. During this time she has an out of body experience where she sees her dead mother and a woman she later discovers to be her dead grandmother. As a result of what has happened to her, Kate moves herself and her son to Montana. They settle in her Grandmother’s old house and she runs the café her Grandmother left her. But unpleasant things begin to happen.


One pleasant thing that happens is her meeting with Chance McLain. He is a very handsome rancher whom her troubled son takes to. Kate herself is passionately attracted to Chance and he returns these feelings but he is engaged to someone else.


This is a really exciting story packed with suspense, mystery and very hot romance. There is so much going on that it is very hard to put down - as a reader I was just so anxious to know what was going to happen on the next page!


Kat Martin has created very memorable characters in Chance and Kate. The secondary characters are well thought out and slip into the story with ease. Native Americans Jeremy, Willow and their son Chris are a great addition to the story. There are some very nasty characters in the plot, including Kate’s ex husband Tommy. Kate’s son David is an interesting young man that the reader gets to watch maturing from tearaway to likeable youngster.


I loved the whole story. Kat Martin at her best. Well worth a read
