Synopsis from Goodreads:

One terrifying premonition brings them together. Another will threaten their future.

Do dreams come true? Dr. Daniel Woodruff hopes they don’t, because his dreams predict a devastating future for him, for those he loves—and for the planet.

His latest premonition, which blows a huge crater in his eroding sanity, holds a singular horror—the loss of a wife and unborn child. Yet another reason he can let no one into his chaotic life, least of all a perky, persistent investigative reporter he finds simultaneously frustrating and fascinating.

Mel Noblett leaves no stone unturned in her one-woman crusade to save the environment. When a whistleblower in Italy proves too frightened to talk, Mel turns to a fall-back lead, an extremely eccentric, beekeeping professor who might just make the trip worthwhile.

Despite their instant attraction, Mel is relieved when Daniel keeps her at arm’s length. After all, she has a secret of her own—one that makes her preternaturally good at her job. And, when Daniel’s terrifying visions prove uncannily accurate and begin to revolve around Mel—it is a gift that could put her life in danger.

Warning: Reluctant seer of a bleak future meets petite force of nature who lights up the heart of his darkness. Where there’s smoke, there could be an unpredictable blaze of passion, but the rewards are oh, so sweet…

My Review:

What an intriguing addition to the series. Cooper’s intricate storyline and fantastic imagination combine to create a seamless story. You can definitely see the evolution of the author’s writing since her first release. Not only does her writing style even out, but the storyline steps up a notch as well. Cooper creates an intricate world for her readers to immerse themselves in while providing them with a captivating and unique storyline that will keep them captivated.

I loved getting to know the characters in this series better. Cooper continues to develop them without counteracting anything we learned in the first novel. The wonderful mix of strong and independent characters were easy to connect with. They all added to the storyline in some important way, whether big or small.

As a whole this was a brilliant addition to Cooper’s series.
