In Native American culture, there is magic to be found in everything. Evil can be hidden by beauty and nothing can be dismissed. In Sherri Whitefeatherís book Always Look Twice, we are taken to the dark side of human nature.

Women are dying in Hollywood and Olivia Whirlwind is brought on the case to help find the killer. Olivia has the ability to see crimes through the eyes of the victims. Working with Native American FBI agent, Ian West, she must find out the identity of the killer before he kills again. Oliviaís tough and confident in her talents, but sheís not sure she can fight the attraction between her and West.

As she delves deeper into the mind of the killer, she finds herself facing an evil that can hide even in the faces of friends. No answer is the same and truth is hidden deep in lies. There are lessons from her own past that need to be learned before she can ever begin to discover the truth about the murders and the killer. The killer soon focuses on her and a race begins. Olivia and Ian must figure out The Slasherís true identity before Olivia becomes the next victim.

This is a rougher edged Bombshell. Olivia is abrasive and tough. She knows her strengths and isnít afraid of any man. Her psychic abilities are just one aspect of her mind that she uses to help solve cases. We learn that her need for control stems from incidents that happened in her childhood, but she survives and thrives. Ian Westís character isnít as developed, but he is interesting and a good foil for Olivia. The pacing is well-done and the supernatural elements are intriguing enough to keep the readerís interest.

This Bombshell teaches us that appearances can be deceiving. Even though we think we see the truth, we should Always Look Twice.
