Now Ben has returned. Camelia tries to get close to him, but he refuses to have anything to do with her. Vicious rumors still circulate about Ben's past. Camelia stands up for him but when he pushes her away, she decides maybe it's time to get on with her life.
Adam,a new cute guy shows up at her after-school job. He's everything Ben isn't--carefree and seems to really be into her.
But just when Camelia starts to date Adam, a triangle shows up. More secrets surface from Ben's past. Plus someone else seems to be after her. Will Camelia figure out who this person is before it's too late?
This is the second book in the Touch series. I really enjoyed the first book and loved how the author was able to add an unique twist to this story. I'd never heard of psychometry and found it interesting how this paranormal gift could effect not only those who have this ability but those around them. It's refreshing to have a story that doesn't rely on the usual cliche paranormal factors.
The second book though I was hoping for more interaction with Camelia and Ben. Ben seemed to waver back and forth from wanting to get close to Camelia and then wanting nothing to do with her. I could sense Camelia's frustration.
I also felt the final revelation was a tad bit predictable. Still, if you are looking for a paranormal that isn't the norm, this is the one. I'm hoping the third book will show how both Ben's and Camelia's paranormal gifts will help them with what I'm sure are other mysteries in their town.
