When college students at Chesapeake Bay College in Maryland start dying from strange accidents, special agents Adam Thomas and M. K. Shaughnessy are assigned to investigate. Thomas is as much a goofball as M. K. (real name unknown) is serious. One thing that they both agree on however is the unspoken heat that seems to arise between them.


As the school year continues, more and more of the so-called accidents take place and each one becomes a bit gorier than the next. M. K. also quickly realizes that whoever is the causing each "accident" seems to be keeping a souvenir from the victims.


The two agents continue to pound the pavement trying to find clues, however the cunning killer stays one step ahead. It is apparent that each incident is planned in advance and that the predator has a reason for choosing young coeds.


Adam has even more reason to worry when he realizes his want-to-be-a-journalist daughter is also prying into each murder trying to come up with a story for the college paper. Can he and M. K. solve the mystery surrounding the accidents before his daughter becomes the next casualty?


I found Ms. Morgan's previous books had enough storyline to hold my attention and to send me out seeking the next book. However, I found What She Can`t See fell flat. The romance and suspense didnít seem to blend well together even though Adam certainly seemed like a hero any die-hard romance reader would enjoy. This current book was filled with lots of gruesome murders, which may at times turn off the reader who is looking for a softer element in their story. Once the story did get going, it seemed that everything was wrapped up a bit too quickly for me. The killer was discovered and thus of course, the hero and heroine got their happy ending. I think that the author might well be better suited to straight suspense stories instead of the romantic suspense genre, which requires such a special blending of both suspense and romance.
