Cate’s enemies aren’t just surrounding her―they’re inside her head.
Therapist Cate Duncan has just accepted a job with the MacGregor Group, a unique collective of alternative healers. She’s excited by the prospect of honing her empathic healing techniques among others like herself — aura readers, telepaths, crystal healers, and more. The fact that Cate just started dating Ben, her magnetic new boss, is an added bonus.
Before Cate can settle into her new routine, the poisoning of a prominent neuroscientist draws the entire MacGregor Group into both a federal investigation and an even more insidious threat. Protected by Ben’s former Marine Corps unit, Cate and her colleagues must use their alternative healing methods to solve the crime as their patient clings to life.
The responsibility of discovering crucial information falls to Cate and her parapsychological powers. But for Cate, unraveling the mystery means reopening wounds that had just begun to heal — and in the environment of the Marine Corps unit, differences between Cate and Ben become clearer, straining their budding romance. When a new crisis looms, Cate must trust in her colleagues’ gifts and the strength of Ben’s love, finding the courage to confront her deepest and most terrifying demons — or her own life will be at risk.
Thank you to the author and to Diversion Publishing for a copy of the book for an honest review.
I have enjoyed both books of Cate Duncan, empath. I was surprised since it wasn’t the typical paranormal/romance I had read up until now and I kinda liked that to be completely honest. I did find that the romantic aspect of the series really took hold more so in this book than in the first one.
Cate has survived Hell week with the MacGregor’s group of paranormal training, well, almost survived. She had quite a few scares during the week, a clients crazy ex boyfriend tried to kill her and he almost killed herself trying to help patients when she should have been focusing on herself. Cate is after all, still human, and learning.
With her internship starting she’s excited to really be more integral to the group as a member and not as a patient. However, before she’s even gotten to the church things are already up in the air. The FBI has called them in, to help with an ailing patient that is top priority and top secret to boot.
The main research doctor seems sketchy but polite, the FBI and assorted military guys seem friendly enough. Everyone’s still on edge not sure what to expect, least of all from Cate.
I’d be interested in reading more of the series should it feel it needs to be developed more. Although I felt it was nicely wrapped up.
