Wiccan (Wiccan #1) by M. Leighton

Goodreads Summary:

Where does evil live? In the heart? Or in the blood?

Nearly-nineteen year old Mercy Holloway has a gift. Long ago murders play out right before her eyes when she passes over a place of death, but Mercy never thought that her unusual ability would interfere with her having a normal college experience. Until today. 

On her way to school, Mercy witnesses another murder—only this one’s different. And Mercy’s the only one who can do anything about it. Out of time and out of options, Mercy takes what little information she has to the police where she meets Detective Caleb Grayson. Grayson doesn’t necessarily believe Mercy, he’s just better at hiding his feelings than most. It’s not long, however, before Grayson has no choice but to believe her.

As the two embark on a mission to solve a murder, Mercy starts having more visions. Only these contain messages. And they’re meant for her. This powerful, evil killer knows things about Mercy that she didn’t even know herself, things she never wanted to find out.

Body by body, Mercy discovers that her gift is not a gift at all, but a curse. And it’s one she can’t escape. It runs in her veins. Can Mercy and Grayson catch a killer and capture love? Or are they destined to fail... at both?

My Review:
A supernatural murder mystery! Yes please! I love it when the paranormal mixes with real life events. I mean I hope murder isn't something you see in your everyday life. Anyway, seeing visions like Mercy see's would not be so fun. Bloody gruesome scenes. Yikes. They are kind of an unwelcome event in her life. I was surprised that she went to the police. I didn't think it would go in that direction. However, her visions soon proved that she was not your standard "psychic" who was looking for fame.

The young accomplished Caleb Grayson was a fun character. At first I didn't think he was going to take Mercy seriously at all. But, after her visions started proving to be true he changed his tune quickly. Mercy had a hard time dealing with the reality of the visions and Caleb was there to help her. It was nice to see their relationship grow and develop. 

And yes there is a cliffhanger at the end! Oh, I will have to wait to see what happens in the next installment. It should be interesting with everything that happened!
