Author: Joyce Lamb
Publisher: Berkley Jove Publishing

Rating: You Gotta Read
Newspaper reporter Charlie Trudeau is living an ordinary life, until witnessing a fatal hit-and-run accident gives her an intense psychic power she has no clue how to handle—and brings a Chicago police detective to her doorstep...
Noah Lassiter wants nothing more than to find the driver who killed his good friend. But his only lead is the beautiful Charlie Trudeau, who gets prickly when he starts nosing around town. Charlie’s clearly hiding something, but Noah needs her help unraveling the mystery of his friend’s death—even if the electricity between them complicates things.
But the more Noah and Charlie uncover, the more they realize they’re looking for a desperate killer—and the more danger they’re in. And if Charlie can’t gain control over her psychic powers, they may not survive long enough to explore the full sizzling potential of their desire…
You know when you love a book so much, you just can't find the right words to do it justice? Well, that's exactly how I feel right now. It doesn't matter what I say about it, you just have to read it to enjoy it as much as I did.
The first book in the True trilogy starts out with some high powered action. Charlie was a character I fell in love with. She's smart, adventurous and not one to just stand aside when she sees something going wrong around her. Noah is that oh so sexy cop (although out of his jurisdiction) that is bound and determined to find the killer of his friend. All roads lead to Charlie when he finds out details of the hit and run but what neither is ready for is the instant chemistry. And my my my do these two spark when they are together.
True Vision is an extremely fast paced book that keeps you on the edge of your seat with an intense and gripping plot line. There is always something going on and when you throw in the paranormal element, this book just keeps getting hotter. The paranormal element Charlie acquires really makes you think about how she's going to get around it. I don't want to give away what it is because that was a really fun part to find out. As for secondary characters, some made me laugh and some made me want to hit the wall but all were essential to True Vision. The action scenes will blow your mind, and watch out for the more intimate scenes, there is an apparent upside to what's going on with Charlie you will enjoy. And I promise, you will LOVE it.
The second book in the series is True Colors and is Alex's story (available now) and finally the third book in the series is True Shot which is Sam's story and is coming in December. You bet I'd be willing to stand in line a really long time for this final story.
Joyce Lamb is one of those authors who is just blessed with the talent of writing an intriguing romantic suspense book. I don't think she could write a book I didn't like if she tried. I was first introduced to her through Cold Midnight and fell in love with her writing style. In my opinion, Ms. Lamb has raised the bar when it comes to True Vision. This is one exceptional read you don't want to miss, I highly recommend it. I am now addicted to anything Joyce Lamb!
