Mystery Review - Visions by Kelley Armstrong

Today I'm reviewing Visions (Cainsville #2) by Kelley Armstrong.

More after the jump!

Summary from Goodreads: Omens, the first installment in Kelley Armstrong’s exciting new series, introduced Olivia Taylor-Jones, daughter of notorious serial killers, and Gabriel Walsh, the self-serving, morally ambiguous lawyer who became her unlikely ally. Together, they chased down a devious killer and partially cleared her parents of their horrifying crimes.

Their success, however, is short-lived. While Olivia takes refuge in the old, secluded town of Cainsville, Gabriel’s past mistakes have come to light, creating a rift between the pair just when she needs his help the most.

Olivia finds a dead woman in her car, dressed to look like her, but the body vanishes before anyone else sees it. Olivia’s convinced it’s another omen, a sign of impending danger. But then she learns that a troubled young woman went missing just days ago—the same woman Olivia found dead in her car. Someone has gone to great lengths to kill and leave this young woman as a warning. But why? And what role has her new home played in this disturbing murder?

Olivia’s effort to uncover the truth places her in the crosshairs of old and powerful forces, forces that have their own agenda, and closely guarded secrets they don’t want revealed.

Review: I'll admit it, I liked the slow simmering of Omens more than Visions, but Kelley Armstrong still delivers with this sequel. And for all of the Gabriel and Ricky fans you will not be disappointed! That should be the new tagline for the Cainsville series: Come for the supernatural mystery, stay for the hot guys. You're welcome marketing people. Bottom line: If you enjoyed Omens and other Kelley Armstrong tales (Although maybe I can't say that because Omens is the only other Armstrong book I've read) then you will most likely love Visions as well.

Stars: 4/5
