Summary

The media has a nickname for Marnie Baranuik, though she'd rather they didn't; they call her the Great White Shark, a rare dual-talented forensic psychic. Twice-Touched by the Blue Sense - which gives her the ability to feel the emotions of others, and read impressions left behind on objects - Marnie also has a doctorate in preternatural biology and a working knowledge of the dark arts. She is considered without peer in the psychic community.
Then her first big FBI case ended with a bullet in one shoulder and a chip on the other, a queasy heart and a serial killer in the wind, leaving her a public flop and a private wreck. When the FBI's preternatural crimes unit tracks her down at a remote mountain lodge for her insight on a local case, her quiet retirement is promptly besieged by a stab-happy starlet, a rampaging ghoul, and a vampire-hunting jackass in tight Wranglers. Marnie figures the only real mystery is which one will kill her first.
Too mean to die young, backed up by friends in cold places, and running with a mouth as demure as a cannon's blast, Marnie Baranuik is about to discover that there's no such thing as quitting time when you're Touched.

Diverting but not satisfying

Well read and amusing in places, but far, far to long for the amount of actual plot in the book. All the constant back and forth of lusting after the two 'love' interests is tedious after the millionth example of it.

Spot on

Amy McFadden was the perfect choice to narrate. She was without a doubt the ideal marnie and got marnies quirky personality and amusing swearing combos down to a T. Lovely to finally hear one of my favourite series

GET THIS BOOK!

What did you love best about Touched?

I absolutely LOVE the snark, humor, and action. But mostly it's so nice to actually have a book with a real story line, plot, character development, it's non stop entertainment.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

never ending action or witty banter.

What does Amy McFadden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I read this book and was delighted when they added it to audible, although I was nervous ( I am the ultimate narrator snob) Amy was a perfect choice, she is amazing at holding character, accents, and different voices without sounding like an idiot. I would listen to her again in a heartbeat

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

So amazeballs we had to make it into a Movie!!! well, okay, so I"ll never make a career in marketing. But I would watch this movie, for realsies.

Any additional comments?

if you like books like the Kate Daniels series, Charlie Davidson, Iron druid, or Mercy Thompson this book is absolutely for you!

nothing much to say but meh.

Aside from the narrator who did a fantastic job as always, the book just didn't hit any good spot. The main character was immature in her ways of thinking and doing things, and the love triangle throughout the book go especially annoying once things seem to work out/heat up with was of the love interests. Almost felt like cheating to a extent.
