~ REVIEW: Rare Find by Dale Mayer ~



When people need help or are injured, they call out for their friends and family. When an animal needs help or is injured, it calls out for…anyone…that can help them… 

One person hears them… 

Tabitha is determined to bury her aching heart in the service of her animals at Exotic Landscape. Until she’s yanked out of her cozy retreat to help someone in need…and she gets more than she bargained for. 
Detective Ronin Chandler understands secrets. He’s got a few of his own. But when the woman he loves gets into trouble – the kind that stretches even his belief system – he struggles to understand…and to help…before he loses her. Maybe forever. 
As the danger escalates, Tabitha and Ronin need to find out who they can trust…and who they can’t…and who wants them dead…before it’s too late.

Christie's Review

4 Stars

Totally unexpected and great, enjoyable read. I am a fan of the paranormal and especially books about psychics, but this one was a total “mindbender” for me. Loved it!

Tabitha is a different kind of psychic. Instead of being able to read people, she reads animals. She has just lost her beloved grandfather and is trying to carry on his legacy at Exotic Landscapes, a haven for animals. She lives there with her trusted companions, Tripod, a three-legged canine, and her exotic white tiger, Tango. She is also taking her relationship with her sexy boyfriend, Detective Ronin Chandler, to the next level.  However, she has been the victim of a “psychic attack” just recently. Now, she is experiencing them again…except much more violent. Will her friends and Ronin be able to save her this time?

This is the 6th book in the series, but each one focuses on different characters, but they re-appear throughout other books.  I especially loved this book because it was about animals and the special bonds humans form with their animal friends. I love Tabitha’s bond and love she has with  Tripod and Tango. It really yanked at my heart! If you’re in the mood for something a bit different but filled with romance, suspense, and the paranormal, give this book and the whole series a try.

The Pyschic Visions Books in order:

Tuesday’s Child, Hide’n Go Seek, Maddy’s Floor, Garden of Sorrow, Knock, Knock, Rare Find
