The only thing great about Laurel Scanlonís life in Washington D.C. was the lover that came to her each night in her dreams. Her gift of sight has made her an outcast among her fatherís upper-class friends who have never understood her. Laurel often wonders if this is how her mother felt when she took her own life years ago.


Things take a drastic turn for the better when she decides to move to the estate left to her by her maternal grandmother outside of Bayou Jean, Louisiana. Here in Bayou Jean her grandmothers legacy lives on and the people in this parish welcome her with open arms especially handsome cajun Justin Bouvier who just happens to be the man from her dreams.


It doesnít take Laurel long to earn her rightful place in the community when her sight allows her to help save the life of Justinís young niece. As the area gathers to honor Laurel and to celebrate the cajun way with good food and drink, Laurel has another vision of one of the lifelong residents of Bayou Jean being beaten to death. Laurel is able to give enough clues to the murderer to send the deceased womanís husband to jail.


As Laurel begins to make changes to her new home and to explore her new spicy relationship with Justin, she has no idea that danger is lurking right around the corner and this time it involves her. Will her special sight be enough to save her own life?


McCall is a favorite author for me but when I started this particular book I was finding it to be a slower read for me than most of her other books but the pace quickly picked up and I found the story to be very enjoyable with just the right mix of romance and suspense.
