Barely a week has passed since she solved her last case and Nola Lantri is already involved in several new mysteries—with a couple of people who may be just as unusual as Nola herself.
Part 1: Vibe
Eric Lafferty has returned to Redfort City a little too late for his father’s funeral but just in time to get mixed-up in a mystery that involves Nola Lantri, Grayson Bryant, a dead girl and a missing woman. Eric’s ability to read the vibrational changes in brain waves should be an asset, yet it only seems to make life more difficult for him—and given that he and Nola might be the next victims, things are difficult enough.
Part 2: Sync
Emjay used to steal things—nothing big, just enough to get by—but after a terrible accident changes her life, Emjay has only one thing on her mind: revenge. Suddenly private investigator Nola Lantri appears and questions Emjay about her past—and informs her that the mysterious man she works for has a complicated past of his own. Emjay must figure out the best use of her odd ability to “sync,” a technique intended to help people heal—but one that also can cause a lot of harm.
I previously reviewed TRACE, the first book in the series, and really enjoyed it, so I was eager to get started on VIBE/SYNC. The sequel brought back all the elements I loved in the first book, and then some. Nola is back, and this time she’s involved in more than one mystery. In book one, Vibe, she deals with Eric Lafferty. He has the ability to read the vibrational changes in brain waves. The paranormal elements were once again a great addition, and this was a particularly supsenseful read, as Eric and Nola are put in a very dangerous situation.
The second part, Sync, focuses mostly on Emjay, who has the ability to “sync”, which can help people heal, but can also be very hurtful. Emjay is mostly focused on getting revenge for what happened in the past, but Nola has some questions about Emjay’s past that might change her life.
I enjoyed the first story the most. Although Eric and Emjay were both engaging characters, I found it easiest to connect to Eric, and I also thought his story was the most interesting of both of them.
