I spent my birthday fast asleep. In a coma to be exact.

When Savannah wakes up after two months in the hospital, she sees a whole lot more than expected, things that could put those close to her at risk.

The five Delcarta sisters have never believed in the paranormal, not like their woo-woo mother. Instead they believe in the power of sisterhood, of romance, and rebuilding their lives after their father's mysterious disappearance nine years earlier. Starting anew in the small town of Iris Harbor, they see potential in all.

But Savannah's awakening after having surgery on a life-threatening aneurysm brings a unique ability to the Delcarta sisters–together, each can predict the future with one of the five senses. And Savannah has the gift of sight.

A serial arsonist has been terrorizing the tight-knit community, and the Delcarta sisters have their suspicions on who could be to blame, including a boy who starts as an adversary to Savannah and then very quickly becomes her whole world. Investigating these crimes, trying to stop them before the next flame is sparked will call upon Savannah to use her newfound abilities with the help of her sisters, and will put each of their lives in danger.

This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.

Sight by Juliet Madison

Sight (The Delta Girls, #1)We have another uniquely told young adult entertainment gem here! Sight by Juliet Madison is a pleasure to read! Low on teen angst, high on family ties, positive attitudes and special sisterly bonds, the suspense and mystery of a serial arsonist is like the cherry on top of this fast-paced, paranormal read!

When Savannah wakes from a two month coma, her world becomes “more.” We’ve all heard of people with traumatic injuries or prolonged comas coming back to us, changed, well Savannah now has the gift of “sight” and things are happening around her that are lie déjà vu moments. She isn’t the only one changed, each of her four sisters have gained another of the senses, and together, they can experience events as if they were there, which actually makes for some humorous moments. Seriously, would you like to be the sister with the gift of scent or smell on garbage day, or worse, after fajita night? (Just saying…). Together these five sisters become their own mental detective agency, and their very gifts may put them on the radar of evil.

But where is the romance? Where are the twists and the revelations? They are all here and told in the spirit of good storytellers everywhere, thanks to the spin Juliet Madison places on her writing. Never weighed down with overly detailed scenes, but filled with action and the camaraderie of five sisters this gem is a quick and fascinating read that will leave you smiling, until you realize that book two is not sitting waiting for you! A definite summertime read with characters full of spirit, a competitive streak and the imaginations of youth!

I received an ARC edition from Diversion Books in exchange for my honest review.
