Genre: Time Travel, Historical Romance, Romantic Suspense
Centuries ago, the passion they shared as Native American lovers ended in tragedy. Together again and unaware of the past, can they claim the love that's rightfully theirs?
Seattle newspaper reporter Lainey Hughes is desperate to find her mother who has disappeared into a doomsday cult sequestered somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. She teams up with Gage Stuart, a jaded cop whose young son is also being held there. As they race up the coast in a kayak searching for their loved ones, Lainey’s visions show her the past . . . the present . . . and the future.
Lives are on the line. Love is within reach. And trust is hard to come by.
WHAT LAINEY SEES may help two wounded souls embrace their future . . . but only if they’ll learn from past mistakes.
Lainey Hughes is a reporter and with one phone call, her life changes forever. A stranger says he has vital information for her and before she can get more information, she hears gunshots and then the line goes dead.
Both Gage and Lainey are trying to discover the truth about their relatives and work together to discover the truth. Along the way, Lainey and Gage are soul mates from over 200 years ago. Can they trust each other to unravel the truth or will they continue to make the same mistakes over and over?
The author does a magnificent job telling the story of Gage and Lainey through the years. The characters were realistic and touching. The suspense gripped me and I had to keep reading to see what happened next. The historical aspects were what made me fall in love with this book. I loved reading about the past and how Lainey came to grips with it all.
If you love Native American lore and historical romance, I highly recommend this book to you!
