Blog Tour: Epiphany by Christina Jean Michaels

ARC for review 

Book Description: “I had my first psychic dream when I was nine. Psychic implied power, and powerful wasn’t a word I’d use to describe myself. I couldn’t foretell the future or conjure visions at will, but I couldn’t think of a more fitting word to describe what I sometimes saw in my dreams.”

For 23-year-old Mackenzie Hill, tossing her life down the garbage disposal is easy after a painful incident shatters her life. Her heart is bleeding, and moving to Watcher’s Point is a chance to start anew, only she isn’t prepared for the guy who walks out of her dreams and into the flesh. Literally . . . because she’s been dreaming about this sexy stranger for years.  

Mackenzie is even less prepared to face the dark nature of her dreams. They’ve turned disturbingly gruesome, full of blood and murder, and when they begin to coincide with the media’s headlines, she and Aidan realize her visions might be the key to stopping a madman from killing again.

Only Aidan has painful secrets of his own, and perhaps the biggest danger of all is falling for him.

The Way I See It

Wow! Epiphany was such an entertaining read. It has a touch of paranormal but just a touch. All of the characters were intriguing and I was gripped to the pages as I went along. This was a one-stop-shop. It had suspense, intrigue, drama, love, second chances and betrayal. Try saying that 5 times fast... lol. Seriously, I thought the Kardashians were scandalous. Well let me tell you they’ve got nothing on the people from the small town of Watchers Point. This was a different and very fun read that I totally lost myself in.

E-ntertaining, meeting new people was never Kenzie’s thing. Dating was the last thing on her mind.
P-arents, angry with her mother and never knowing her father, Kenzie is trying to find herself in this world.
I-ntriguing a stranger who is anything but a stranger comes barreling into Kenzie’s life. Little does she know its about to change forever.
P-romise, to make sure no one else is hurt, Aidan will stop at nothing to find a murderer.
H-urt, so much pain has followed Aidan and Mackenzie. Their pasts seem to be a barrier keeping them apart.
A-nger, Mackenzie’s mother unloads a world of pain on her daughter. Now Kenzie must get away to seek answers from the only person who can give them to her.
N-otorious, a danger to everyone has managed to get away with so much destruction it seems he can elude at every turn.
Y-earning, to move on and put everything in the past is what Kenzie wishes. It seems her past refuses to let go and it could me the most dangerous yet.

Eeeeep... yep there’s more to come! I have the full blown grin tongue hanging out, panting like an excited little puppy. :) I am dying to read more about this complex little town with these intriguing characters. Ms. Michaels does an amazing job of introducing everyone...I want to know more and I want HEA’s for EVERYONE! This was one thrilling chase. Kenzie’s dreams were the key to so many things. I loved the way Aidan was there for her from the beginning. Get this book you won’t regret it.

My Fav’s

Major Baggage Alert. Wow this poor girl has got some serious pain and betrayal that she is trying to work through. Its not easy when the love of your life rips out your heart. Well, even with having to deal with all that we get to know her and realize she is kind and caring. For all of the hurt she has suffered she is still empathetic I’m looking forward to reading more about Kenzie as she discovers who she really is and what her abilities mean for her.

Strong, handsome, brooding, Aidan comes to Watchers point looking to stop a killer. The last thing he was counting on was finding Kenzie, funny thing about fate is it doesn’t wait for you it vomits on your leather jacket when you least expect it. I’m looking forward to knowing Aidan better, I knew he was a protector for a reason. I just knew it ;)

My Wish
What the heck is up with this Payne family?! Hamilton...Dying to know what is really going on!

About the Author

Christina Jean Michaels was born in Paradise, California, but she has found the true home of her heart in Eugene, Oregon where she finds plenty of inspiration for storytelling. 

When she was young, her mother said she hated words. Now she can't imagine not writing. She became an avid reader when she was thirteen and discovered the world of Sweet Valley High.

She lives with her husband and their four children—three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.
