Review: Touched by Death by T. L. Martin

What if Death was more tempting than you had ever imagined?With Grams's recent passing and a boyfriend who cares more about his next drink than her, Lou Adaire only wants to run. To start over somewhere new — maybe in a town where her family has history.

But when a storm sends Lou’s truck plunging into Tuttle Creek Lake, she discovers exactly what it’s like to fight for your life. To gasp for air only to have your lungs fill with icy water. To die.

What comes next changes everything.

Dark eyes. Consuming presence.

Death. As vague as a dream yet as intense as the lightning flashing above her still heart.
Everything about him calls out to her, tugging at her with the warm vibration of his pull. He’s supposed to take her; they both know it. She wants him to.

When she wakes in the hospital in a new town, she can’t forget what she saw. That impossible sensation of him breathing life back into her, a strong beat playing in her chest and a flutter running down her spine.

Trying to move on with her life in a foreign place is hard enough, but when he comes back for more — his burning touch against her skin, his consuming presence weaving in and out of her life, and his own scars running far deeper than hers — Lou begins to realize there’s more to Death, and to the sleepy Kansas town, than she ever expected to find.

Lou lived. But what if she’s not the only one in need of saving?

Wow, this book is just epic! I loved it so much, right from the beginning the story sucked me in and it was so difficult to put it down. Although, its pace is quite slow but still there isn't even a single boring moment. Also, there are enough twists and turns to keep readers on their toes. Every time you start to relax something totally unexpected and exciting happens and you sit up straight once again, giving your full attention to everything that's happening in this amazing read. I quite enjoyed reading it and I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for something intriguing and unusual to read.

Lou has just lost her grandmother, her last living relative, and now she needs a break. Hence, her decision to sell the house and move to some place where she can start afresh. Unfortunately, her life turns more complicated than ever. After a near death experience she starts having weird dreams and strange feelings. Is she going crazy? Or is there a rational explanation for everything that has been happening around her? There is a mystery that needs solving but first she must find a job and make some kind of life in this town she is going to call home, for now.

The first thing that I noticed about this book was its name and cover, but it was the tag line that decided for me, I had to read it. And I'm happy to say that I wasn't disappointed in the least. In fact, the story surpassed my expectations. After a long time I've read a paranormal fiction which is giving me worst (or best, depending on how you see it) kind of book hangover.

P.S. I'd like to thank the author for providing a complimentary copy of this book.
