CLARITY by Kim Harrington

Dude, you guys, did you know I love a spicy main character? Someone with flair and attitude and smarts? Someone who's not afraid of who she is, but also terrified of letting other people know who she is?

If you didn't know that, now you do. Also, I found all these amazing qualities in an unforgettable character, Clare Fern from Kim Harrington's CLARITY.


So if you like a spicy MC, with a hard edge but a soft side, you'll love CLARITY.

Did you also know that I have a special place in my heart for the paranormal? You know like reading minds and controlling fire and hey, seeing visions?

Well, now you do. And this extra dash of paranormal specialness is prevalent in CLARITY. Clare can see secrets when she touches objects. It's a gift. And a curse. But mostly Clare uses it to help her solve a murder.

And holy smoking guns, Batman! Who doesn't love a good paranormal, spicy-character, murder mystery??

Um, CLARITY has all that and more. Great writing. A fast pace. A tight plot. Get it, read it, love it. You won't be disappointed.

What do you love in characters and/or books?

My copy of Clarity just came in the mail yesterday. I can't wait to read it. And I'll be interviewing Kim and giving away a copy of her book on April 3rd. So happy for her. And can't wait for your debut. It's coming soon!

You have such a great way of making a book feel really accessible! A spicy character with a hard edge but a soft side? Sounds like a character I'd stick with through a book. Throw in some paranormal loverlies, and I'm in!

I read about people with gifts similar to that when I was studying ghost hunting/paranormal investigation. It always fascinated me.

Clare rocked. I loved the part with the soda! :)

This looks GREAT! I love all of those things, and I also think the cover is pretty nice. (Seriously, do you vet books based on cover design or something? Because ALL the books you review have awesome covers!) Thanks for the recommendation.
