I love books that feature psychics, so when I read a review on the latest of the books in this series, I decided to start with the first one. And I am extremely glad I took the plunge into these books.
Trudy Tucker is an extremely talented psychic who is able to go into the minds of criminals, and see through their eyes the crimes they commit-murders, kidnapping, that kind of thing. It’s hard on her emotionally, but she still has started consulting with police departments and private individuals. Her mentor and friend is Quintara, a psychic of sorts-not near as talented as Trudy, but she does run classes to teach psychics, and has a successful career as a writer in the psychic community. When Quintera reaches out to Trudy to come to Florida to help with a serial killer case, Trudy goes. Also on the case is ultra famous psychic, Levi Wolfe, someone that Trudy is completely attracted to, even though he is a known womanizer. What she doesn’t know is that the attraction is mutual.
The serial killer is targeting women in the Key West area, so Trudy drives her RV from Oklahoma to a rundown RV park near Key West. She pretty much immediately sees the ghost of the wife of the owner, Ethel-a new talent. Ethel is trying to tell her something, but Trudy can’t hear her. This continues to happen throughout the read. Once Trudy and Levi start working together, the investigation ramps up. Also part of the action is police detective, Tom Sinclair, the detective on the the case. And that’s all I am going to say about the actual story.
Levi’s character was probably my favorite part of the read. He’s devastatingly handsome, rich-as in mega rich-and he has had a horrible life growing up. He was the most complex character of this read, and I think there is way more to find out about him in future books. I liked Trudy as well, she is still coming into many of her talents and actually is probably more talented than Levi and Quintara combined. She leads a simple life, with little money,and has a little dog named, Mouse. I mention the dog because at times Trudy is gone all day in the Florida heat, leaving the dog in the RV. No mention of air conditioning, only about how decrepit the RV is, so it bothered me. Just a minor plot hole, but it kept happening, so I noticed. Not to mention, not taking the dog outside regularly! Yes, I am an animal person. Can’t help it.
This story is full of paranormal suspense, but what is more important in this story is the romance between Trudy and Levi.The romance is nicely drawn by the author, and is hot with extremely vivid sensual scenes, to say the least. It wasn’t insta-love as the two has known each other for awhile; this is just the first time they have spent any real time together. Levi, and all his residual hangups, and his previous refusal to have a monogamous relationship, are all tested in this installment, much to Trudy’s and this readers delight.

Deborah Camp does a terrific job weaving a story full of suspense, mystery, and romance. The hero and heroine of the story are two well-developed characters, both of whom have quite different and intriguing paranormal abilities. The story is told from both POV's, however, more Trudy's than Levi's. I loved Trudy, what a terrific heroine. While she may be somewhat naïve, she's honest, tells it like it is, stands up for what's right, intelligent, funny, and has a lot of paranormal abilities, some that she didn't even know she had. It's only when she recognizes and fully admits her true potential that she's able to utilize all her abilities. It's these talents, and the fact that Levi has wanted her ever since he first met her over a year ago, that has them both working together. Ahhh....Levi. With a soft touch, a light kiss, or a hungry look, Trudy can't resist him. Full of charisma and his sexy good looks, it seems he's every girl's wet dream. With everything going for him, Levi has a lot of issues. One of them being that he can't get enough of Trudy. No matter how much time he spends with her, it's never enough. The other, his lack of trust in everyone. So much that he's unable to tell Trudy everything that she deserves to know especially when it comes to his feelings for her.
"Through His Eyes" engages the reader with two stories. One being a serial killer that's on the loose killing young women, with Levi and Trudy working together to stop him. The second being Levi and Trudy's sexual relationship, and let me tell you ladies there's plenty of sexcapades going on these two engage in. So refreshing is that neither character ever said the L word. Are they in love with each other? I'd say most definitely. Do they get their HEA? Perhaps. Unfortunately, it turns out their story continues in the next installment. Yep, you read right. We have to wait to read the next book to see what happens between the two, and considering how the author ended this book, it can't come soon enough. Hells bells! I'm peeved that I have to wait for book 2 which will be available September, 2014.
So why four stars instead of five? As much as I love reading all the sexcapades the two are engaged in, there were so many that I thought the serial killer plot took a bit of a backseat to it. I also thought it was way too quick and easy and abrupt as to how the killer was caught. It doesn't help that I figured out who the killer was early on. While there are a few spelling and grammatical errors, there are two blatant errors that should've been caught. A character by the name of Ethel is called "Edith" in one instance. When Levi goes to the see the police captain, he tells Trudy his appointment with him is at 2:00 pm. After his appointment, which took longer that it should've, sitting in a car with two officers looking at his watch, he reads it's now 12:30 pm. The clock is supposed to move forwards, not backwards. Regardless of the errors, I still enjoyed the story and characters, and highly recommend it.
