Lexi Morgan has always had The Touch; the ability to pick up an object and ‘see’ its past. Doomed to wearing protective gloves at all times, she learned to accept it as equal parts gift and curse. When her brother in law Neil disappears, she’d rather tell her sister to celebrate than try to help find the jerk. But after her young niece vanishes as well, it’s time to put her gift to good use and help track her down, especially when handsome Detective Gabriel Ryan takes over the case. When the investigation leads them to the restless spirits of long dead children, they must work together to keep history from repeating itself before it’s too late.
The Touch begins when Lexi's brother-in-law goes missing. Lexi has a gift of using her hands to touch objects to see things. So, her sister thinks she can help her find her husband. But when that becomes a problem another family member goes missing, and things go from bad to worse for Lexi and her sister. Not only that but Detective Ryan seems to be a man Lexi can't seem to get off of her mind, and he's equally intrigued by her. But when more strange things start to happen neither one are sure of what to do or what is to come.
The touch was okay. It wasn't bad, but it really wasn't great either. But the whole beginning till almost a little past the halfway point it was really good actually. But then to me it just sort of really fell flat. I also hated the way it ended. It frustrated me, and left us with still more questions even though it wasn't a cliffhanger.
The writing was good though, and I really enjoyed Lexi and Detective Ryan! Lexi is actually kind of funny, and her ability was super interesting. And the relationship that was developing between the two was awesome to watch as well.
So for me I liked the book, but if there is a second one I probably won't read it. This one was good to pass the time with for a while.
