"Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It's a gift. And a curse. When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare's ex-boyfriend wants her to help solve the case--but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare's brother--who has supernatural gifts of his own--becomes the prime suspect, and Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she needs it most?" (book's blurb)
Being busy lately with real life affairs, my reading time was sacrificed.  So, it's been difficult to get through a book.  I'm glad I stumbled into this one because it was just the right light and entertaining read I needed for a relaxing break.  It had a nice balance of mystery and romance.  The light whodunit aspect was a wonderful surprise. The simple prose, the enthralling storyline, and the captivating characters made this a seductive read. It was quick, refreshing, and packed a spellbinding effect. The ending rounded the book well and gave enough appeal for the sequel. It wasn't the kind of cliff hanger that left you angry at the author for potentially waiting a year for the continuation ... I was satisfied but eager enough to await for what's next. 

Team Justin or Team Gabriel? ...As you know, I've been burned out with love triangles, but surprisingly I liked the conceptional and the developing Clare-Justin-Gabriel love interest here.  Their relationships were merely sweet.  Really looking forward to the follow-up in book #2.

This debut book gets a thumb's up vote from me!  Yeay, for fun YA books!!
