Review: Meeting Destiny

Meeting Destiny [Destiny #1]
By Nancy Straight

From Goodreads
Lauren is visited in her dreams for years by a stranger claiming to be her destiny. Destiny becomes reality when paths cross during a failed robbery attempt. Lauren and the stranger experience chemistry like no other and now her doubt over her long time relationship with her high school sweetheart is not her only secret…someone else knows about her keen intuition and sixth sense.

A mysterious clairvoyant seeks Lauren out and tells her not only of her life now but what the future may hold. Soon Lauren is in the middle of a murder investigation and a questionable friendship with the key suspect. Law enforcement, friends and family are concerned for Lauren but unfortunately they are unaware of the true danger…Sinister forces are at work and will stop at nothing to destroy Lauren’s abilities.

Alexia’s Review
What a great story – it sucked me in straight away.

Lauren is this amazingly strong person. She is honest, trustworthy and dependable. I love her!! She has super ‘bad luck’ – there’s always something going on that involves her in some way. Lauren perseveres through all situations that she finds herself in. She’s a real tough cookie! Through all this she has a recurring dream about a man telling her that he is her destiny.

And so we meet Max, the paramedic that swoops in and saves Lauren’s life. She immediately has a connection with him and visa versa. They are such a powerful couple.

Lauren is also ‘semi’ dating her childhood friend, Seth. He is a force of nature on his own. Always there for her, always wanting to protect and care for her. She becomes so accustomed to having him in her life, and them always being together that people assume they are in a relationship, she just never bothers to correct them.

The author takes you on an exciting journey with the characters solving mysteries and making life changing decisions. This novel has humour, romance and action – fabulous read!

I’m not a fan of novels that end with major cliffhangers but I get why it needs to be done… holy moly what an ending!! It leaves you wanting more J

Superb cocktail creation
