This was great for me in so many ways! It has my favorite paranormal thing. I usually say magic is my favorite but really it is the mind stuff – clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition, etc. The main character is Carissa, who is a psychic. She helps to locate missing people and sometimes knows in advance when children will be kidnapped so she can intervene.
The overall plot was pretty good; I didn’t guess the kidnapper until he was revealed. The other characters were not as well developed and a bit more stereotypical without the complexity or depth. Overall, Searching for Faith is not long, a quick, fun for me read. I loved the world building though since this was set in Minnesota and I lived there 35 years. So I enjoyed all the places and could easily picture them.
The next in the Missing series is Looking for Lainey, available October 17, 2017. I am so excited to continue with this series.
