Book Description:

Sadie Perkins has a sixth sense about things—especially people dying. Her clairvoyance has never bothered her until she starts to believe that her visions are causing the deaths of those around her. After her latest relationship ends ... badly ... Sadie swears off love for good. While searching for an uncomplicated life, Sadie finds her hands full not only with a home renovation project but with defending herself against suspicion of murder. There's a fine line between predicting someone's death and causing it. Has Sadie finally crossed that line?

Enter contractor Max Schultz, who is not only good at working on houses, but he's good at working on Sadie too. Much to Max's dismay, as he's trying to win Sadie's heart, he finds Sadie's first love, Henry Fitzsimmons, is back in the picture, snooping around.

Sadie doesn't know which way to turn or who to trust, including herself. Can Sadie clear her name and open her heart all at the same time?

My Book Review:

In Killing Me Softly, author Kathryn R. Biel weaves an intriguing romantic tale with a twist of mystery, and suspense. The readers are easily drawn into Sadie Perkins' story, she has the gift of clairvoyance which causes complications in her life when she starts to believe that her visions cause the death of people around her. She finds her life gets complicated when she is under suspicion of murder, and has the burden of trying to defend herself and clear her name. To relieve the stress, Sadie turns to a home renovation project, and along comes sexy contractor Max Schultz, who tries to win her heart. With plenty of drama and trouble following at her heels, can Sadie clear her name and open her heart to love?

Killing Me Softly is a thoroughly entertaining story that has just the right amount of intertwining romance, humor, mystery and suspense. As Sadie's story unfolded, it had enough drama, emotion, laugh out loud moments, and gritty twists and turns, that easily drew me in, kept me guessing, and wanting to know what would happen next. I have always been interested in the area of psychic phenomenon, so Sadie's gift of clairvoyance and the burden that comes with it really peaked my interest, kept me engaged, and turning the pages. I loved the backstory of Sadie's life, the rich description of the small town setting, the quirky pop culture references, the witty dialogue, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I really enjoyed watching how Sadie's romantic relationships played out in the end.
