4.5 StarsWow, this book gave me exactly what I needed, even though I didn’t realize I was missing anything. It was a refreshing palette cleanser that I was in dire need of. Romantic Suspense is one of the least frequent genres I read, but every once in a while I need a book like that to shake things up. You may be wondering why I mentioned the Romantic Suspense genre when the cover blurb reads like a Paranormal Romance. I guess it’s because this read like a Romantic Suspense book that had pe [...]
A murdered woman gets a chance to solve her own murder I am not normally much for suspense but Cold Touch worked for me on so many fronts. I loved both of the leads, Liv who has the 'cold touch' and works for a pyschic detective agency and police detective Gabe who is not really open to all things 'woo woo'. I thought that the romance between them was well done with a quick attraction but no quick hook-up. The Gabe's character is honorable and the author doesn't leave that behind to go for the e [...]
Reading Leslie Parrish’s books is my guilty little pleasure. Why guilty? Because when her books come out, I drop everything else I might be reading at the moment, and dive right in. Headfirst. And I love it.I loved this new installment in her Extrasensory Agents series as well. A great mix of romance, drama, paranormal and thriller. Because there was no “pussy” suspense in this book, it jumped right into the thriller realm with a villain there was no space left in his head (if you want to [...]

She nev [...]
This had everything I want from a romantic suspense. Great H/h, slow building romance that doesn't take a backseat to the suspense. Super creepy bad guys that get what's coming to them, nice amount of "steam" and an HEA. I really love this series and look forward to the next one.@Austin Club Friends - 0 on the Weird-Meter!
Olivia Wainwright has a terrifying "gift". When she touches a dead body she can live the last 2 minutes and 10 seconds of their life. The ability first showed up after she was kidnapped at the age of 15. It was an awful experience, she barely managed to escape with her life intact. The only reason she succeeded was Jake, a boy who "worked" with the kidnapper, who saved her life. So when she sees his face on the news, as an unidentified Jimmy Doe, she knows she must do whatever she can to repay h [...]
Very good romantic suspense with a touch of paranormal. The mystery/suspense was well done. The last half which had me on the edge of my seat. I didn't see the ending coming at all--a total shocker! The romance parts were also handled well--the relationship built over the book and they didn't immediately fall into bed. I liked the main characters and supporting cast. I think it will appeal to paranormal romance fans as well as romantic suspense fans.I also enjoyed the first book in this series, [...]
Originally posted at smexybooks/2011/06/revFavorite Quote: “Can you take out the angry eyes, Mrs. Potato Head, and just let me talk to you?"When a child’s bones are found boarded up in the wall of a bar, Olivia Wainwright instinctively knows that these are the bones of a child who saved her life 12 years ago. Olivia was kidnapped out of her home and tortured when she was 15 years old. When the kidnapper killed her, a young boy, Jack, preformed CPR and brought her back to life. Olivia was abl [...]
I've got to write this "review" quickly, because I'm going to read Wildfire now and I'm pretty sure it will purge all thoughts of other books, despite their good quality. -- Which, yes, Cold Touch was a good read. I enjoy stories set in our reality with just that little twist of something. This was a romantic suspense in many ways, but it had that little paranormal twist and I love reading about that sort of thing. - Both Olivia, the heroine who was blessed with suck, and Gabe, the hero who coul [...]
The serial killer had a lot of potential, he was interesting.
Very Brief Synopsis - At the age of fifteen, Olivia Wainwright was kidnapped and held for ransom. Although she manages to escape with the help of "Jack", a young boy also under the kidnapper's control, her life is forever changed. When a skeleton of a young boy is discovered in the wall of a burnt out bar near where Olivia was held, she feels compelled to go to the scene. She meets Detective Gabe Cooper, and together they unravel the mystery of the remains. Someone doesn't want them to succeed, [...]
Having read the first book in this series, I would say Parrish stepped up the depth on the characters. I really enjoyed Olivia's backstory and her relationship with Gabe. The storyline was fast paced and kept me interested. My only complaint would be that I knew who was involved in the kidnapping from the get-go, but that was offset by the fact that Parrish did something I didn't expect during the story (not giving it away, don't worry). I think this series is really interesting and can't wait t [...]
This was a good, fast-paced read about a woman who is kidnapped from her bedroom at the age of 15, has a near death experience when he abductor tries to drown her and as a result of this horrible experience develops an ability to touch the body of a victim and re-live that person's last 2 minutes and 10 seconds of life on earth. This is the 1st in a trilogy--the 2nd in the series "Cold Sight" is already waiting for me on the hold shelf of my library! Since I wrote this-I have discovered that thi [...]
Olivia uses her "gift" of touching people and reliving their last 2 minutes 10 seconds to make a living. She received this "gift" after she was murdered and came back after 2 minutes 10 seconds. When a body is found she thinks it may be of the boy who condemned her and then brought her back, so she goes to the cop who is assigned the case for help. I enjoyed this story. I haven't read book #1, this one was a recommendation. I need to go back and read the first one and keep up with the series. It [...]
Another excellent paranormal suspense from Parrish. I really liked that there was more emphasis on the paranormal elements this time around. That was a disappointment for me in the last book.Olivia was everything I expected her to be. I was really moved by her past and her gift. What she had to deal with was heartbreaking and horrifying. Gabe was a good counterpoint for her. He balanced out some of her darker edges. That's not to say he didn't have some darkness of his own. He did. Though I don' [...]
4/5; 4 stars; A-Leslie Parrish doesn't disappoint when it comes to writing solid romantic suspense. Her Black Cat series had just a hint of paranormal elements and this series ups the paranormal quite a bit. However, if you're expecting werewolves, vampires, etc, you won't get that. Just your 'regular woo-woo'. Olivia, Gabe, Ty, Julia, and the rest of the characters were interesting and easy to connect with. I'd recommend this book to fans of Laura Griffin.
AMAZING Paranormal Romance/Suspense-Thriller!Ms. Parrish's stories are a little dark, but OH SO well written! Her characters and plot capture the reader right at the beginning and continue to keep you enthralled until the very end! I can't wait o read more of this series!
Really good mystery. Awesome twist at the end. Decent H/h chemistry. All-around winner.
I've loved Leslie Kelly's books since I first read her Harlequins years ago. When she originally published the Black CATs and Extrasensory Agents books under the name Leslie Parrish, I feel in love with her much darker voice. I loved the Black CATs books and have said repeatedly I want more. I also love her Extrasensory Agents books and loved Cold Sight, the first book in the series. That being said, I really think Cold Touch is my favorite darker Leslie Kelly book ever.I loved both of the main [...]

Cold Touch, the second installment of Leslie Parrish/Leslie A. Kelly's Extrasensory Agents series is just as good as her first.This time it’s Olivia Wainwright’s turn to take centre stage as we discover how she gained the dark ability that is slowly destroying her. The victim of a kidnapping gone wrong, Olivia has spent the last 12 years trying to find the young boy who saved her life. When a child’s body is discovered, Olivia is forced to confront her past and convince the handsome but sc [...]
Fantastic Read!This book has a wonderful set of characters, some living . . . . . some dead. The story covers the horrifying experience of a young girl a and how it left her with a remarkable gift . . . or terrible curse. Gabe was so reluctant both professionally and personally to accept the legacy and the talents of the others. I can't wait to go to book 1 to play catch up before plunging into the next deliciously intriguing books in this series.
WOW!I've read many books on anomalies of paranormal persons, but this series is phenomenal! Clever, innovative, plots that chilled my innards, plot twists that were staggering to my imaginationis series has it all! Well worth the time to read and I plan to re-read them when I have the time.
ExcellentReally enjoyed this book, I do so enjoy this genre. If you enjoyed Shiloh Walkers psychic series you will thoroughly enjoy this author's contribution to the genre. I can't wait to read more of her work
Great book. It will keep you turning the page. Once you think you figure out happened something else happens and you have to try to figure it out again. Definitely suspense in this book! It will have your adrenaline going!
Although it seemed to follow a similar formula as #1, I enjoyed the storyline and the extrasensory aspects of this installment. The characters are strong but the romance side was, again, a little too "love at first sight" perfect for me. Still an entertaining read though.
This was a good second book in the series; I didn't like it quite as much as the first. My husband is reading "Cold Sight" but I doubt if I'll be able to get him to read this one; too much romance. Still, I rate it 4.6 stars.
I'm loving this series! But be sure to have tissues for at least one part in each book.
Loved it. follow up to the first bookn't wait for book 3fast becoming a favorite seriesif you like romance and suspense thrillers this is a MUST for you!
