I Can See You by Karen Rose features graduate student Eve Wilson and homicide detective Noah Webster. Publisher: Grand Central Publishing, August 2009
New York Times bestselling author Karen Rose delivers her latest pulse-pounding suspense novel, where the line between the virtual world and everyday reality blurs when it comes to murder.
Eve Wilson’s face was once scarred by a vicious assault. Terrified and ashamed, she escaped to the online realm, where she could choose the face she allowed people to see. Years later, her outer scars faded and inner scars buried, Eve has fought her way back to the real world and is determined to help others do the same. Now a graduate student moonlighting as a bartender, Eve researches the addictive powers of online communities. When her test subjects begin turning up dead as a result of apparent suicides, she doesn’t know where to turn.
Homicide detective Noah Webster is one of the few people who believe the victims are connected murders. Eve becomes Noah’s online guide and realizes that the handsome detective may have secret scars as painful as her own. As Eve and Noah chase a killer who is always one step ahead of them, together they try to overcome the tragedies of their pasts and learn to trust again, but they soon discover that danger is much closer than they think.
I could not put this book down. I enjoyed watching Eve and Noah admit their attraction to one another while Noah is trying to solve the murders of women by a serial killer who soon goes after Eve. Meanwhile, someone else is after Noah and his partner and soon both cases collide and the detectives have to find out why. There were so many twists and turns and I thought I knew who the killer was, but those surprise twists that rounded the corner made me think of someone else. I love Karen’s book because she has everything I like, suspense, mystery, thrills and romance. My rating: 4.5 stars
