Kay Hooper's romantically suspenseful trio of books have two main things in common, the first of which is the existence of psychic powers. The main characters in each of these books have psychic talent, some different and stronger than others but always present and always important for the actions in the book --- the mysteries are solved by these psychic powers. The second thing these books have in common is the existence of one character, Noah Bishop, an FBI man who plays a very limited role in the first book, a bit more important one in the second and, in a sense, stars in the third.
If the reader can completely suspend their disbelief and accept the existence of psychic powers, then they can enjoy these books as an engaging and entertaining series of stories. Hooper starts out slowly, introducing this concept to us in such a way that by the time we realize how many people possess these powers, it becomes easier for us to accept. These books also contain a powerful strain of romance, so be prepared for that as well.
The first book, STEALING SHADOWS, takes place in a small town in North Carolina. Cassie Neill, who has just moved into her deceased aunt's house, goes to visit Judge Ben Ryan, a fairly young man who is now District Attorney. She tells him that she has been inside the mind of a serial killer who will kill again. Naturally, Ryan and the sheriff are reluctant to accept this --- until they find the body of Becky Smith with her throat cut, that is. Then Ryan, at least, is willing to believe that Cassie has some sort of power. As the killings continue, Cassie tries to get back into the mind of the serial killer, although this is extremely dangerous for her; she fled California precisely because she had gotten too involved in the minds of killers. Finally, in a very exciting denouement, the murderer is identified and appropriately punished with the assistance of Noah Bishop. Hooper manages to bring a fresh view to a fairly conventional plot, and the reader will be deeply involved in what is at times teeth clenching suspense.
In HIDING IN THE SHADOWS, Kane MacGregor and Dinah Leighton are living together, although Kane would like to make the commitment firmer. One day Dinah simply disappears,
