The lovely Judy Serrano gave me the opportunity to read the ARC of her new paranormal romance/fantasy novel Ivy Vines, Visions.
Title: Ivy Vines ,Vision
Author: Judy Serrano
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Fantasy
Published: To Be Announced
Moving to Sedona was the only way Ivy could think of to start over. She would meet her high school sweetheart and work on making things right between them. Her psychic abilities were gradually becoming a curse and she needed a new start. Little does she know that when she applies for a waitressing job at a local, upscale French bistro, she will come in contact with the dark and mysterious Eli Dubois. What she doesn’t realize is she has just walked into the middle of the Vortex Murders, which involve a great deal of paranormal activity. Elijah’s army of seers are being murdered, one by one, which seems to be magnifying Ivy’s special abilities.
Eli’s best friend, Jake, arrives on the scene and reveals the secret that changes everything. With nowhere to turn, Ivy leans on the two men who offer her solace. And who is the old woman in the shroud? Is she a vision, a dream, or is she real? Only time will tell.
Ivy Vines has to be one of the best books I have read this year. I love paranormal romances. This was slightly different to the vampire and werewolves that seem to be the norm at the moment. In Ivy Vines, we have Seers, Guardians, Gatekeepers and the devil himself Lucifer.
Ivy knew she had psychic abilities since she was a teenager, she has visions but her visions are not always good. It was becoming a curse and as time went by her friends going away to college and nothing being left at home for her she decides to move to Sedona in the hope that her and her ex would start over together. That is until she goes for a job interview where Michael works and meets Eli, the owner. There was a powerful connection between them and it isn’t long before she is his. There are strange things happening in Sedona though. When seers are being killed, the Vortex Murders and a witch that seems to pop up from nowhere. I could go on but it would spoil it for anyone that wants to read it. I will say that it is AMAZING!!!!
I really liked Ivy, she had a good heart and was very strong. Eli and Michael, I didn’t like so much. They both betray Ivy in some way. Jake, OMG I loved him. He was perfect in every way, kind, caring, a true gentleman that would go to the ends of the Earth for the woman he loved.
I do hope there is a book 2 as the way Visions was left it seemed like there may be.
I love Judy Serrano’s books, I have not read one that I have not liked and every book gets better and better.
