Publishers Weekly Review

Bestseller Johansen convincingly mixes mystical elements with a rapid-fire plot in her 21st Eve Duncan novel (after 2016's Night and Day). Artist Jane MacGuire, Eve's adopted daughter who has the ability to see actual events in her dreams, is in Gaelkar, Scotland, helping Lord MacDuff search for a treasure associated with Cira, a woman who lived in ancient times. Jane dreams of Cira-but also of a woman in the present who's being held captive. She eventually identifies the woman as Lisa, the 19-year-old sister of a man from her past, the mocking and arrogant Seth Caleb. Jane has mixed feelings when Seth calls to inform her that he's coming to Scotland to aid Lord MacDuff, but Jane and Seth end up joining forces to rescue Lisa from her captors, who have devious reasons for holding her against her will-and who will stop at nothing to get her back. The sexual attraction between Jane and Seth simmers in the background as the action builds to a stunning climax in Dubai. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Booklist Review

The best-selling Johansen employs a distinctive formula: energetic and extensive dialogue, steady pacing, and a seemingly bottomless whirlpool of emotion and romantic suspense. The reader never knows just what to expect from her multifaceted characters, many of whom are gifted with extraordinary, sometimes paranormal, talents. In this twenty-first book in the Eve Duncan series, Jane MacGuire, Eve's adopted daughter, plans to return to Scotland to resume her search for a lost ancient treasure, all the while beset by dreams of a girl in danger. She names her Lisa and creates detailed sketches from memory, hoping that the background scenery will provide a clue as to where she is being held. Meanwhile, Seth Caleb comes back into Jane's life. This time Jane must rescue him and, in the process, comes to realize that treasure comes in many forms. Amid all of the adventure and intrigue is an ecstatic Eve, who has been doubly blessed with a son and the special psychic bond that has grown between them. Fans will enjoy the opportunity to revisit Johansen's much-loved cast. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A new Eve Duncan translates immediately to big sales and a satisfied audience.--Murphy, Jane Copyright 2017 Booklist

Kirkus Book Review

When artist Jane MacGuire connects psychically with a young woman who's being held captive, she discovers that she's the enigmatic Seth Caleb's sister and is swept into rescuing her. Once she's safe, however, Jane becomes the next target in a ploy to force Caleb to kill or see her killed.A kidnap victim who psychically demands Jane's help seems familiar, but it takes Jane a while to connect her to Seth Caleb, a man who both frightens and attracts her. Confronting Caleb with sketches she's "seen" through the girl's eyes, he confirms Lisa Ridondo is his sister and, using her art and Google Earth, the two are able to locate the girl and rescue her. Jane takes Lisa under her wing and brings her back to Scotland, where she and her friends are searching for a long-buried treasure, and Lisa joins the quest. Not convinced the threat to his sister is over, Caleb tries to get to the bottom of why she was kidnapped in the first place, and just when he's fitting the pieces togetherher captors were trying to leverage him into using his unique, dangerous gifts to kill a target in a way that wouldn't cause suspicionhe learns they've shifted their interest to Jane, believing she and Caleb are lovers. Once they have their hands on her, he must use his wits and gather some of Jane's devoted and resourceful friends in order to save her as well as his would-be victim. Johansen returns to the world of Eve Duncan, Joe Quinn, and Jane MacGuiresuspense with a touch of supernaturalto resounding success and ties up some loose ends and romantic possibilities from past books. The final scene will be especially enjoyable to series fans. Enthralling, entertaining, and completely satisfying. Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
