Book Description

8 Sep 2011 Extra Sensory Agents (Book 2)
Since being gifted - or cursed - with the ability to touch a lifeless body and relive the deceased's final moments, Olivia Wainwright has died a hundred deaths. And every glimpse into this darkness draws her deeper into danger. Though he doesn't believe in psychics, Savannah Detective Gabe Cooper offers her a glimmer of light. As their bond deepens, Olivia will have to choose between her cold gift and the warmth Gabe can provide. And Gabe can't refuse when she needs his help solving a crime that's haunted her for over a decade: her own murder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful read from Leslie Parrish 20 July 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I thoroughly enjoyed book 1, `Cold Sight' in the Extrasensory Agents series so was excited to read its sequel, `Cold Touch' and it didn't disappoint! We see all of the characters from `Cold Sight' return in this amazing sequel but this book focuses on Olivia Wainwright who has the most debilitating gift of them all, although I am sure they would call what they can do a curse rather than a gift.

Olivia is able to relive 2 minutes and 10 seconds of a dead person's life and find out how they died, she recognized she had this ability following her own death and revival at the age of 15 when she was kidnapped, murdered and revived by her savior; a 12year old who was a prisoner himself and known only to her as `Jack'.

Savannah Detective Gabe Cooper is a skeptic of those claiming psychic abilities but after seeing Olivia touch and work out the cause of death in a case he is working on, he starts to question his beliefs; he also comes to accept the bones found in a bar fire could be related to Olivia's own kidnapping.

Gabe along with his rookie partner Ty, an amazing character who bought a touch of humor to the story agree to work with eXtreme Investigations to try and solve a decade plus cold case, working together to piece together a timeline not making sense and a number of boys all disappearing with the same circumstances surrounding them.
The investigation was gruesome and detailed; what the team of eXtreme Investigations had to go through to solve it as well as others they work on would play havoc with their minds, the plot twists and turns kept the pacing even and the storyline fascinating.

Although Olivia had such an unusual ability that was slowly tearing at her soul, she had a sense of strength, compassion and independence, she put herself through hell time after time to help others, never thinking of the harm it was causing to her own psyche - I loved her as the main heroine. Gabe was her perfect match and protected her in a way she hadn't been in a long time; their romance developed at a believable pace although their attraction was instant.

I loved the supporting characters and the setup for the rest of the series. They are complex characters each having their own potential for the future stories, I am really curious about Derek!

Parrish is an amazing writer who has created a very intense thriller; it is solidly written with the right amount of romance, mystery and action. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! 13 July 2011
By Elizabeth Brown - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've loved Leslie Parrish's books since I read Fade to Black, the first book in her Black CATs series. I loved the Black CATs books and have said repeatedly I want more. I also love her Extrasensory Agents books and loved Cold Sight, the first book in the series. That being said, I really think Cold Touch is my favorite Leslie Parrish book ever.

I loved both of the main characters so much. Olivia's "gift" give me chills. I can't imagine willingly touching a dead body to experience the last 2 minutes and 10 seconds of that person's life to see how they died. Gabe is so protective of everyone around him. He and Olivia are attracted to one another from their very first meeting. Once Gabe realized he had real feelings for Olivia, his protection mode went into overdrive.

I also loved Gabe's partner Ty and Olivia's co-workers and her sister. In fact, I would love to see some of the secondary characters get books in the future. I don't want to post any spoilers about this book. I can only say I felt so many different emotions as I read this story. I cheered Olivia and Gabe on from the very beginning. I laughed out loud a few times, and cried like a baby at other times. I really thought I had the bad guy figured out with about 100 pages left, but was off the mark. I love that Leslie kept me guessing and I still had to wait for the reveal.

Cold Touch is one of the best books I've read all year. It is filled with suspense, action, and romance. I personally am hoping and praying we get more books from Leslie Parrish in the future!

Cold Touch by Leslie Parrish
Paranormal Romance -July 5th, 2011
5 stars

Olivia Wainwright has a strange gift/curse. When she touches the remains of a human, she can live through their last two minutes and ten seconds of that person's life. With her ability, Olivia is an invaluable member of the eXtreme Investigations, a team of private detectives with special abilities. Olivia's gift was activated when she was kidnapped and murdered at the age of fifteen. Since then, she has tried to live a normal life until she finds out that her kidnapper/murderer might still be at large.

Inspector Gabe Cooper of the Savannah's police force is starting to believe that there's a serial killer out there kidnapping and murdering little boys. He is investigating the mysterious remains of a murdered young boy. When Olivia shows up at the police station claiming to be able to identify the unknown boy's, Gabe has an inkling that there's a connection between her kidnapping case and the murders of the rest of little boys. To solve the crime, Gabe has no choice but to trust Olivia despite his disbelief of anything paranormal. Can the two of them stop this killer before he strikes again?

Leslie Parrish has done it again. I could not put down Cold Sight at all! This book is a riveting and tense read from start to finish. Olivia is clearly the main star of the book. Her character is so vivid and complex that you feel her trauma each time she has to use her gift. Though I understand her pain and her longing for a different life, the author has set up the story in such a way that there's no choice for Olivia but to use her gift. Without Olivia, the plot would not happen. With such a strong female character, it is inevitable that Gabe pales in comparison. He's nice and sweet and has his own baggage to lug around, but his character just doesn't resonate as strongly as Olivia's. Still, I was glad when they finally got together. Olivia definitely needs Gabe's steadiness. He is her only hold on sanity.

Exciting and solidly written, this is a well-paced and engrossing thriller/romance. I can't wait for the next in the series!!!

I read this in 2011, so it's a while back, but I'll tell you this: I am truly sad this series wasn't given a chance to continue. It's one of the best paranormal psychic books I've ever read. I sit in hope every single day that Ms. Parrish will continue with the third book. One can always hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyed it! 27 Aug 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
4.5 Stars

Wow, this book gave me exactly what I needed, even though I didn't realize I was missing anything. It was a refreshing palette cleanser that I was in dire need of. Romantic Suspense is one of the least frequent genres I read, but every once in a while I need a book like that to shake things up. You may be wondering why I mentioned the Romantic Suspense genre when the cover blurb reads like a Paranormal Romance. I guess it's because this read like a Romantic Suspense book that had people with paranormal abilities in it, as opposed to a Paranormal Romance with a suspense storyline in it.

I love, love, love Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard, and this reminded me of it. Not in storyline or humor, but in the way multiple POV's were featured in order to make a well rounded picture of the plot. We saw POV's from the main characters, the villain, some coworkers of the hero and heroine, and even one of the victims. Sometimes too many POV's can make me feel a lack of depth in the characters, but Parrish managed it beautifully. Instead of feeling a lack, I actually felt like the author built a whole cast of well rounded characters that I couldn't help but become invested in.

This book does not shy away from the grim details of bad events happening to good people. If you do not enjoy your books with disturbing events that you could see in real life then I would recommend steering clear. Not only was Liv a victim herself, her experience gave her the ability to experience death again and again. The scenes showing her past and the ones we see that highlight her ability are not pretty. They are dark and upsetting, and the author nailed the emotion of the characters so well that it's hard not to get sucked into the moment. I absolutely love that we're actually shown those scenes instead of just being told about them.

The heroine, Olivia, is absolutely wonderful. She has her issues (totally understandable), but she doesn't let it control her life. She still has friends and doesn't isolate herself from her family, dysfunctional though they may be. She doesn't spend her life moping about the past. She picked herself up and tried to rebuild her life. I have to admire her for that. I also like that the abilities that she and her coworkers have are not convenient and easy to manage. Sometimes it's hard for them to tell whether their abilities are a gift or a curse.

I liked that the author managed to illustrate that tragedy breaks down any division between the rich and the poor. She wasn't in your face about it, but having the rich girl heroine and the poor boy hero both experience tragedy in the childhood put them on equal footing. Liv and Gabe even had a couple discussions about it. Gabe kept thinking that their backgrounds were a hindrance to their relationship, but Liv wouldn't let him see a stereotypical rich girl instead of the real her. She was so much more than that label.

Although this book took place in short amount of time, I never felt that the romance was too rushed. Gabe was authentically suspicious of Liv's legitimacy in the beginning, and his trust was earned slowly. The attraction between them was immediate, but the relationship took a while to blossom. I liked that things were developed slowly between them and that they never let their attraction get in the way of the case.

The only thing that kept this from being a perfect grade was Gabe's attitude toward Liv's job near the end. I understand and appreciate that he was concerned about the toll her ability was taking on her, but the things he said to her and her boss really put my back up. I did not like that he put that crap on her about it being impossible for her to have a family or a relationship if she continued to use her ability. His dismissal of the occasional necessity of her ability really put a bad taste in my mouth. Especially when a good portion of the plot relied on her using that ability! I really wish she would have turned his accusations right back around on him. It's not like being a cop treats you to nothing but the good in people.

Beyond that minor irritation, I really liked the book. I could tell by page 30 that I loved the author's writing style, and I was never proven wrong. Although some parts of the book are dark, the author manages a nice balance with humor from the characters. I can't wait to see what the next book will be about.

Favorite Quote:

"Gabe," she eventually whispered, her voice lazy, sated and thick with sex.

"Yeah, darlin'?"

"Thanks for pushing me out of the path of that car."

"Pushing doesn't sound heroic enough. I didn't push you; I swooped in and carried you."
