Believing in psychic ability is abnormal to some. I do believe in it, so this book, to me, is wonderful. For Lauren, the "gift" is passed to her from generations back. As for Justin, his connection is strong enough to take Lauren's ability in stride, even though he doesn't have the "gift".
This story shows how people react, and behave, around people who have this ability. They are afraid of what they don't know about.
I loved reading this book, and would recommend it to anyone who likes to read about psychics.

A friend was getting rid of some of her books and handed them onto me (knowing I would be the only one who would take in a hundred books.)
So, in there I found Mimosa grove and fell in love with it.
Laural had the ability to see things normal people would never be able to her. Her mother had the ability, her mothers mother did and you get the jist.
So when he grandmother dies and leaves Mimosa Grove to her, Laurel decides to move there and start over.
Except things are a lot different there. People embrace her gift instead of shunning her for it.
Then she comes face to face with the man she's been sharing steamy dreams with for the past couple of months. The very sexy and sweet Justin who cannot believe he had finally found his dream woman. Literally.
I enjoyed this book and have re-read it so many times. Id reccomend it to anyone whose after a good adventure, an amazing love story and a little supernatural thrown into the mix.

A Book That's Just FUN! 5 April 2005
By L. Martin - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked up this Dinah McCall book because the cover looked intriguing and found it to be just that. I'm not usually that lucky when grabbing a new author off of the bookstore shelves.

This is the story of Laurel Scanlon who has the gift of sight. This ability was passed down to the oldest daughter in each generation. Laurel's mother was driven crazy by it and this gift has left Laurel uneasy. The man in her life had left because he couldn't accept her "difference". So now she doesn't trust anyone. And her heart is given to a man who has been in her dreams for four months, she figures it's safer that way.

When her maternal grandmother leaves her Mimosa Grove, a beautiful but run down home outside Bayou Jean, Louisiana, she moves there deciding that a new beginning is just what she needs. She tries to keep to herself, but that's nearly impossible. The townsfolk are thrilled that another "sighted one" has arrived and many come bearing tales of how her grandmother had helped them which puts her at ease a bit.

When a child is lost, Laurel uses her gift to help the rescuers find her. She figures everyone will now shun her, but just the opposite happens. The child's uncle, Justin Bouvier, comes to Mimosa Grove to personally thank Laurel for her help. Laurel is shocked, as this is the man who comes to her in her dreams.

The tale continues with Justin trying to remove the wall Laurel has built around her heart, while trying to protect her from the dangers lurking at Mimosa Grove.

This is a typical romantic mystery but what has it surpass many others on the market is McCall's vivid imagery and wonderful character development. Her characters range from the beautiful, haunted, Laurel; to ruggedly handsome, Justin; to a variety of unique townsfolk; and Marie, an aging housekeeper who is more of a nanny than maid. My favorite scenes are when Tule and Marie get together - they are hilarious! You'll laugh at the antics of some of these characters, which is part of the fun in reading Mimosa Grove.

MIMOSA GROVE is a bit predictable, but so enjoyable that you'll easily overlook the minor flaws. This story definitely put this author on my MUST READ list with this name and her pseudonym of Sharon Sala.

exciting romance with a little ESP included 25 April 2004
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
If you like a little of the paranormal in a good romance, this one's for you! The sight isn't a pleasant gift to Laurel, it's a curse. However, to us it is a delight. I usually dislike the way some characters complain about having a gift like this. If I had it, I hope I would use it for good. Our heroine finally realizes this, and with the help, and love of Justin,(who was a slave and knew Laurel in a previous life) she finds love, caring people, and a Place to call home. With good plotting, very well defined characters and an exciting adventure, Sharon Sala (Dinah McCall) has given us an interesting, entertaining way to spend an afternoon. I read to be entertained and I was well pleased.You will be too.

Pleasantly surprised 13 Dec. 2004
By baditterbunnyqueen - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book a while back, but kept putting it off. I thought it would be another run of the mill romance, but I was pleasantly surprised. The heroine, while prone to a little too much demuring, was actually more likeable in my eyes than the average heroine. The plot was interesting and kept me involved, and I was actually surprised by the ending, a rarety. Justin is a likeable hero, a change from the usual run of the mill stoic silent alpha male. The locale is also presented in a likeable way. Even with the colloqialisms in the dialogue, none of the bayou people sounded stupid or illiterate, merely the simply, humble people they are. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants something a little more than the average romance.

page-turning until the end! 22 Jun. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Based on the back cover, Laurel has the gift of "sight" (premonitions), passed down from generations on her mother's side of the story. If you have an open mind for believing in what could happen, you will enjoy this book. I was engrossed until the very end.

One of my favorite traits of Dinah McCall's writing is that there's more to the plot than "boy gets girl." Her books aren't the same old question of whether the main male character will get together with the main female character - they have more substance than that. The subplot regarding the history surrounding Mimosa Grove (the name of the estate her grandmother passed down to Laurel) was magical, sad, and comforting (that everything is connected) all rolled into one. The primary plot was mystical, suspenseful and beautiful.

The book was so well-written that it left me wanting to believe that this could happen in real life. If you're looking for a little magic and romance, you will definitely enjoy this book!
