THE NEW BISHOP/SCU NOVEL

After years away, Jessie Rayburn has finally returned home—unwelcomed—to a town of menacing whispers: Baron Hollow, North Carolina. It’s as though she never left. That’s why she’s so afraid.

She left behind her estranged sister, Emma, who has her own secrets to protect. But Emma is afraid to reveal what’s really troubling her and keeping her awake—strange dreams of women being murdered, brutally, viciously. Now, in this conspiracy of silence, Emma’s bad dreams are becoming more real than ever.

Even with the help of Noah Bishop, cofounder of Haven, the group of psychic investigators that Jessie works for, Jessie and Emma fear they won’t be able to outrun the secrets buried in Baron Hollow—or the evil targeting them one last time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thrilling and Suspenseful... Story Description: Berkley Trade|July 31, 2012|Hardcover|ISBN: 978-0-425-25874-3 New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper returns with a breathtaking new thriller of a young woman’s homecoming-to a town of menacing whispers, bad dreams, and dangerous secrets… Another nightmare, in the woods this time…different…she was running. Try to escape. But the same ending. Always the same ending. Another dead girl. Emma Rayburn was born and raised in Baron Hollow, North Carolina and it was a quiet life. Then came the accident…and the nightmares-each filled with unshakable visions of darkness, blind panic, and desperate women chased toward inevitable death. With no reports of local women missing or found dead, Emma has written it off to troubled imaginings-night after dreaded night. Until her sister arrives. Jessie Rayburn, psychic investigator for a firm called Haven, has been estranged from Emma for years. Unresolved issues from Jessie’s past have not only kept them apart but have been clouding Jessie’s unique abilities. A return to her hometown to face a dark and violent incident from years gone by is her chance to regain them. But reconciliation with the past comes a price. Few people in Baron Hollow are welcoming Jessie back. No one dares to breathe a word. And in this conspiracy of silence, Emma’s nightmares are becoming more vivid than ever. Even with the help of Noah Bishop, head of the FBI Special Crimes Unit and co-founder of Haven, Jessie and Emma soon find themselves outnumbered by the secrets buried in Baron Hollow-and outrunning an evil that has been festering for years, one that’s targeting Jessie and Emma one last time. My Review: Wow, this was a very fast paced book that I read in one sitting within a couple of hours! Jessie Rayburn had special psychic abilities and worked for Haven, a branch of the FBI’s Special Crimes Unit under the direction of its head, Noah Bishop. Jessie was having problems with her unusual abilities as she was remembering something that happened in her past when she left her hometown at age 17. She decides to take two weeks off work to return to her little hometown of Baron Hollow to see her sister, Emma Rayburn whom she hasn’t seen or spoken to in 15 years. When Jessie arrives, the people of Baron Hollow aren’t totally thrilled to see Jessie return but try not to make too much of a fuss. Jessie is determined she is going to find out what it is that happened, that was so bad all those years ago that it has blocked her abilities. She sets out each day scouring the woods around the town and talking to various people hoping to discover someone or something that would trigger her mind. What she stumbled into she wouldn’t get out of, Jessie would be lost forever. Kay Hooper’s Haven is full of drama, suspense, and heart-pounding scenes that’ll have you almost quaking in your boots and raising the hairs on your arms. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
