Book Description

October 1997 36 Hours
The great disaster of Grand Springs, Colorado, had given Jessica Hanson one nasty head injury--and sinister visions of murder. But no one believed she'd actually witnessed a crime, despite the fact that a body existed. Only Detective Stone Richardson paid her any attention. He had his theories, and now he had his star witness. But unlocking Jessica's secrets--and her heart--held only danger. Because now her visions foresaw another death--his.

Product Description

From Amazon

Jessica Hanson is at work in her office when the lights go out. Fumbling for a flashlight, she trips and falls, striking her head. Disoriented and in pain, she watches in horror as Mayor Olivia Stuart is murdered before her very eyes. The blow to her head renders her unconscious, and she awakens to find herself in the local hospital.

Stone Richardson's heart stops when he sees Jessica--her clothes spattered with blood--being wheeled into the emergency room. She disappeared from his life and their passionate relationship two years earlier without a word of farewell, after he made it clear that he would never marry because of his career as a police officer.

Despite her resolve to avoid Stone, Jessica has nowhere else to turn with her knowledge that Olivia Stuart's death was not accidental. Forced to work together, the onetime lovers rediscover their love for each other. Before they can live happily ever after, however, they must find Olivia's murderer--Stone's life depends on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Times Review Jan. 20 2004
Format:Paperback
Jessica Hanson was one of the victims of the blackout. When the lights went out, she went down, hitting her head on the filing cabinet. Coming to in the hospital, she's haunted by images she can't explain which seem to be FOR HER EYES ONLY (4.5). Finding lost items is one thing, but some of what she sees leads her to believe the town's mayor was murdered. When she looks for someone to believe in her visions, the first person she finds is the last one she thinks she wants, Stone Richardson, the reason she left town two years before. Sharon Sala sizzles in this sensational read.

3.0 out of 5 stars So Who Dun It Anyway??? Sept. 6 2005
By L. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Sharon Sala is one of my favorite authors, but if I had read this book first, it may have been a different story. FOR HER EYES ONLY is mediocre and the ending is not really an ending - Sala left a few loose ends and important ones too!

Going on the premise that a head injury could cause psychic abilities, Sala weaves a story around Jessica Hanson. Jessica has just returned to her small hometown after a two-year self-imposed hiatus. Stone Richardson, the love of her life, had told her he didn't want to marry again after his disastrous first marriage due to his career choice as a police officer. So instead of trying to change his mind, Jessica hit the road. Now she's back and thinks he's out of her system.

While Jessica is at work in her office, there is an electrical blackout. Trying to fine her way in the dark, she trips and whacks her head on the file cabinets, knocking her unconscious. While incapacitated, she sees the mayor, Olivia Stuart, murdered. Jessica comes to at the local hospital and is confused as to exactly what is going on. When she realizes that Olivia was murdered in her own home and not in Jessica's office, she wonders if what she saw was true or her imagination.

While being wheeled into the emergency room on a gurney, she just happens to pass Stone. He sees her bloody clothing, the old feelings come right back, and he inserts himself back into Jessica's life.

Jessica and Stone are thrown together over the murder and his desire to protect her. Ok, so that's not his only desire, but this is a romance book! Sala has some hot and steamy sex scenes to add some spice to the storyline. But it seems that she waffles between romance and mystery, which leaves the reader a bit confused. SPOILER There were some decent red herrings tossed in as to who committed the murder and why, but they are left unanswered. The reader is left dangling and we never know who committed the murder. The book ends with the marriage of Jessica and Stone. I wanna know who dun it!End Spoiler

The climax seems to take a twist and instead of focusing on the murder of Olivia Stuart, Sala switches gears and instead focuses on Jessica predicting Stone being shot. During a bank holdup and subsequent hostage situation, Jessica once again whacks her head and no longer has psychic abilities. Interesting - if ya want to see the future, whack your head. When it becomes a hassle, whack your head again. Nope, I didn't buy this part and it left me groaning!

The ending needed about 50 or so more pages to tie up the loose ends that are left floating in the wind. Otherwise the story line was decent, but not spectacular.

Character development was very good, as is normal Sala style. We're given such vivid descriptions we can envision the small bald spot on Jessica's head where the doctors shaved her hair to stitch her up. Stone is also well developed and Sala leaves nothing to the reader's imagination. Supporting cast was a bit under developed. Brenda, Jessica's sister, could have been much more intriguing and interesting if we understood what made her tick instead of just having her show up in Jessica's life. Stryker, Stone's partner, was also under developed and could have added to the story.

Overall, this was a decent book. It's a Harlequin Romance and a quick read. If it had more meat, then I think Sala could have finished the entire story instead of just part of it. It ended abruptly and left too many unanswered questions!

The plot line starts out to be interesting, but the ending is boring, predictable, and not truly an ending. Who dunnit? We really don't know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharon is great! Sept. 26 2005

Format:Paperback
To the other reviewers that read this book, the possibly do not know that this book is #4 in a series of 12 books. They all happen in the 36 hour blackout and it all ties in at the very end. I have become a fan of Sharon Sala and I can't wait for her next book.
