Book Review: Clarity By: Kim Harrington

Book Description:
Clarity “Clare” Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It’s a gift.

And a curse.

When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare’s ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case—but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare’s brother—who has supernatural gifts of his own—becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?

My Thoughts:
I couldn't put it down it was fun! A mystery that was enjoyable! I finished it in one sitting so it's a super fast read, I was down to 2 people for who the murderer could possibly be and I was right with 1 of them! It was enjoyable but not super amazing... There will be a love triangle and it left me completely hanging and wanting to read the 2nd book! So the author achieved her goal in that aspect! Honestly I think the author could've made this one book instead of however many she is going to write. 
However, the thing that I had the most difficulty with was how she got involved in the first place. Apparently when there‘s murder in town, who you gonna call? Why, the local 16 year old psychic. Swallowing the pill of authorities actually roping her in to help (albeit secretly,) was a difficult to do. But once done, I found I enjoyed Clarity and the rest of the story. Clare is that fiery/snarky/spunky character that I like in a book.

Language: heavy
Violence: moderate
Sexual Content: moderate
Drugs/Alcohol: moderate 

Overall: I'd be careful with who reads this due to the content but it was a fun fast read...
