The Bookanistas: Clarity by Kim Harrington

Goodreads Summary: 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?

Why I liked it:

Here’s the thing.  I’m a sucker for a good mystery.  I’m a sucker for Veronica Mars.  And I’m definitely a sucker for powers that are also curses.  Clarity is a fascinating blend of all three.   There were enough twists and turns in this to keep you guessing, which is also a major plus.  I hate when you start reading a mystery and right away you know who the bad guy is.

The characters are interesting, and some of them are really ‘characters’ – the kind you’d picture working in a tourist town.  Clarity was a fun narrator, as she tried to figure out what was really going on in town.

Clarity comes out on March 1st.
