From the first few pages I was unsure where this book was going as it seemed more chick flick than about to go into urban fantasy. Sure enough it did build around Nicole and soon enough we know that the dreams that she has been having are warning her. So much so that she saves a life!
This is just a small introduction into I'm sure a very much larger story in the rest of the series. Chick flick in the opening stages but builds into intrigue and there is a bit of romance mixed in too.
Definitely intrigued to see where the author is headed with these. On my must read list!
