Desperate Choices - A Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Desperate Choices by Kathy Ivan (ebook)

What is it about:
When psychic Theresa Crawford's former beau walks into her New Orleans New Age shop, she senses trouble. Big trouble. Max Lamoreaux hasn't come to discuss their relationship—the private investigator is on a case, and he needs Theresa's help.
Max's godson is missing. The police have declared Tommy a runaway, but Max's gut tells him otherwise. While he's highly skeptical of Theresa's abilities, her visions provide the only clue as to who's taken Tommy. The longer Max works with Theresa, the harder it is to resist his desire for the sexy woman.
As they inch closer to finding Tommy, Max and Theresa also discover that time hasn't diminished their powerful attraction. But Theresa harbors her own dark secrets from her past. Secrets that broke them up before—and could drive them apart again, unless Theresa can learn to trust Max with everything...

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
Going by the title of this book I had expected it to be a bit more darker and...well... more desperate. Instead it's a very nice suspense/romance story, but at times a bit too easy. I got the feeling that the real romantic struggle between Max and Theresa happened before this story even begins while I would have liked to read about it in this story instead of only knowing they had trouble in the past. I also would have liked to read more about the missing godson. There's a nice little storyline about him, but it doesn't touch deep enough in my opinion. All in all this story is a nice, relaxing read where it could have been something with a bit more bite.

Why should you read it:
It's a nice suspense/romance story.

* I got this book for review from the publisher through Netgalley

It does sounds nice, nothing too great! I don't think I will be reading this in the future. Thank you for the great review. And yeah that cover is totally awesome.

Sounds like they pulled an accidental bait and switch. It's like reading a book labeled "Romance" that doesn't have a happy ending.
