A series for the senses
Sight is the first in The Delta Girls series by the talented genre jumping Juliet Madison. I read her debut, Fast Forward, and loved it but haven't managed to catch anything of hers since. It's a simple case of too many good books and not enough hours, I have meant to read all the releases in between but haven't managed to fit them in. Sight is one that I simply had to make room for, the cover is absolutely gorgeous and that cover model looks familiar but I can't work out where from. More than just the cover, the premise grabbed me.
The Delcarta sisters and their mother have just moved to Iris Harbor for a fresh start away from all the memories of their father, who disappeared nine years earlier. It's a great time to start anew because Savannah is still recuperating after major surgery to remove an aneurysm, an operation which seems to have done replaced her aneurysm with something new, a gift that is shared with her sisters.
Savannah is one of five Delcarta sisters; a set of twins with names beginning with T and a set of triplets with names beginning with S. Their ages are quite similar so their parents had a few tough years with a set of twins and then triplets not that long after.
The triplets are sixteen, which we know because Savannah spent her sweet sixteenth sleeping, very deeply in the hospital. Now that Savannah is up and about again she is being monitored closely by her protective family, and it's driving her a little crazy because she is a girl who needs to be active.
A chance meeting on a beach jolts Savannah into recognising the gift she received in return for her aneurysm and it isn't long before she discovers that she shares it with her sisters. I found this whole storyline to be completely unique and enthralling, not to mention intriguing - I am tempted to google and see just what I can found out, if it really is a phenomena. Savannah has been granted the gift of second sight, not really that unusual after a coma and a life threatening operation. But her sisters also gained the gift of a second sense, a different one for each of them, and they had to be connected for the sight to work for them.
The remainder of my review will be published at Beauty and Lace.
