From the USA Today Bestselling Author Vicki Hinze comes The Reunited Hearts, a romantic suspense series of standalone novels with couples in dangerous situations who reunite in atypical ways.
She knows a child's life is in danger but no one believes her.
He knows she is a fraud and is out to prove it.
They seek the truth and discover it can set you free…or kill you.
In Mind Reader, (first released in 1993 and rewritten for release as a clean read in this edition), Caron Chalmers is an empath. A mind reader cursed with imaging only victims. She sees what they see, feels what they feel, endures what they endure and has since she was seven. But even with all the sensory perception and insights, sometimes she fails to save victims. Sometimes she wrongly interprets the signs—and a year ago, she did exactly that. She messed up and a victim died. Caron nearly died with her. Her "gift" shut down.
Now it's back. There's another victim—this time, a child—and because of the mistake made last year and the shut-down, her police contact, though aware of her many successes, isn't willing to stake his career on her. Yet he can't dismiss her so he calls in help from private investigator Parker Simms: a man with a past as bleak as Caron's and a specific agenda of his own: proving Caron Chalmers is the fraud he believes her to be.
In a hostile alliance, Caron and Parker seek the truth…and discover a labyrinth of lies and deceptions that require skills and experience they have and trust they don't but must somehow find before the child becomes another victim lost. Yet trust never comes without costs, and some are too steep to pay.
The situation grows desperate. Time for the child's survival grows short…and for Caron and Parker, who must live with the consequences of missteps and wrong moves, this is exactly the wrong time to be on the brink of falling in love. The dire situation grows worse, the unthinkable happens, and stakes that couldn't get any higher soar.
