Synopsis: Sadie Perkins has a sixth sense about things—especially people dying. Her clairvoyance has never bothered her until she starts to believe that her visions are causing the deaths of those around her. After her latest relationship ends ... badly ... Sadie swears off love for good. While searching for an uncomplicated life, Sadie finds her hands full not only with a home renovation project but with defending herself against suspicion of murder. There's a fine line between predicting someone's death and causing it. Has Sadie finally crossed that line?
Enter contractor Max Schultz, who is not only good at working on houses, but he's good at working on Sadie too. Much to Max's dismay, as he's trying to win Sadie's heart, he finds Sadie's first love, Henry Fitzsimmons, is back in the picture, snooping around. 
Sadie doesn't know which way to turn or who to trust, including herself. Can Sadie clear her name and open her heart all at the same time?

Review: This is not your typical romance story. It's rom-com, mystery, suspense, thriller---a little bit of everything! 

Sadie seems to be the most normal person in her strange and dysfunctional family--and when you consider that she believes she can cause people to die just because of her words, that is definitely saying a lot.

There is so much going on in Sadie's life throughout this book that I don't know how she holds on to her sanity.  There's a planned romantic getaway for Valentine's Day that goes VERY wrong, a tragic car accident, a pregnancy, a new love interest, the return of a crush, a mysterious disappearance, a death, etc. 

Oh, and let's not forget that Sadie is renovating her new home throughout all of this.

You might think that all of that activity would make the storyline tough to follow, but it doesn't. It just has you wanting to keep reading to find out what Sadie is going to get herself into next, and how she's going to get out of all the many messes she finds herself in, time after time.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**
