Hello, dear readers! Today I would like to introduce you to Ronan and Dustin, the protagonists of the first book in L.J. Hamlin’s Visions, titled Blood Visions.
Private detective Ronan Bayne is a former cop who now runs his own agency specializing in all things paranormal. After several women have gone missing, Ronan gets called in by the police chief.
Dustin McPherson is a psychic who’s worked with the police in the past. After having a vision of one of the missing women, he meets Ronan. Together, they must solve a case more complicated than either of them expected. (via Goodreads)
