Bet You Can't Find Me


I was given a copy of this book for an honest review by LibraryThing

Catherine has a company called "Psychic Consultant." She is helping Cody Allrn who heads up the homicide division , on a missing person's case. They have developed a trust between each other and Cody believes in her ability to see things others can't. One day Cody is called into the chief's office. He has been informed that he will be working with Brian Wilkes who is with the FBI. It seems that there have been a string of unsolved muders that have a connection to Catherine.

Suddenly Catherine's world is turned upside down. Her phones are tapped and she has noticed someone following her and watching her every movement. People that Catherine knows, are suddenly savagely being murdered and someone is trying to point the police to her as the suspect. Is she guilty of these heinous crimes ? Can her psychic powers help her find the truth?

The book has many twists and turns. It delves into the voodoo, psychic world that has many secrets and spirits. It takes us into the backwoods of a town that is well known for spreading terror and fear on those thst don't believe in the supernatural. The author , Linda has written a book so intense and heart pounding , and filled with tension that I could not put the book down. She has done a great job of developing characters that are strong , supportive and have a willingness to sacrifice theirselves in order to save others.

This is my first book I have read by Linda Prather but it will not be the last. There is a second book in this gripping, nonstop action story that I have to read. Thank you Linda for a book that have all the elements needed for a must read.  )

reviewI was given this book from the author for an honest review.

When I first looked at the book and started reading it, I thought I could do a quick read and do a review. As I began to read I saw the heart of a man who wrote a book that shared his heart and raw emotions of a journey that he never imagined he would experience. Mr. Beaufort was diagnosed at the young age of 39 with prostrate cancer. It is a true story of how he walked this path his life took him on and how he beat cancer.

One of the greatest challenges anyone faces when they get a diagnosis with the word cancer is fear. Mr. Beaufort wants to help those going through cancer treatment realize that fear can overtake you and keep you isolated from the people who care about you and want to help take this journey with you. He tells the readers that you must reach out for help. If you don't reach out for help, fear will overtake you and keep you trapped as you spiral into a deep depression that will close you off from the world . He knew that "this journey with cancer would be the hardest thing he has ever done . Any other challenges in his life would be nothing compared to beating cancer. "

In this book Mr. Beaufort gives cancer patients keys to help them go through what lays ahead. It will not be an easy road, but one made a little easier with heartfelt , emotional tips to help those with cancer endure their journey. A few key points he makes are to exercise and exercise your self esteem. If there is no one around , look in the mirror and give yourself a pep talk. Everyone knows that knowledge is power , so he encourages you to go on the defensive and become an expert in your diagnosis.

I loved when he said "Understanding your situation will help control your fear." We all have fear of the unknown, but we can conquer that fear by being informed and taking control of our situation. Throughout the book, you can feel his pain, struggles and strength as he gives readers hope and insight into how he beat cancer. As I read the book, I felt as if he was taking someone's hand and walking with them as they take the journey that he had just overcome. His desire to help others is painted by his eloquent and compassionate words that are a gift for those who are facing this disease. He spoke with passion as he wrote, "Life is to short to wait for permission to continue living. Don't allow cancer to define you."

Thank you Mr. Beaufort for a glimpse into your life as you beat cancer, overcame your fear and shared your fight to beat cancer with others. I encourage everyone that has been diagnosed or know someone that has been diagnosed with cancer to read this book. It will help you in your darkest moment, give you encouragement and empower you to lessen your fear as you take Mr. Beaufort's book and apply it on your journey. This book is not meant to be a cure for cancer , but a book about a man who walked in your shoes and overcame his fear while dealing with cancer.
