Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Sarah Roberts blacks out, she wakes to find prophetic notes mysteriously written by her own hand. After receiving a message that someone is about to be kidnapped with instructions on how to stop it, Sarah’s convinced it won’t be hard to do. She is wrong.

The kidnappers take Sarah instead. She’s thwarted them in the past, and they want to know how she keeps showing up where she has no business being.

Sarah needs help from the police, but they’re hunting her for a different reason. They found her notebook riddled with prophetic messages, linking her to crimes and unsolved cases. Is she a vigilante keeping score? Or on a citywide crime spree?

Armed with a note that simply states, save yourself, Sarah struggles to stay alive using her wit and street smarts.

Several years ago, someone murdered Sarah’s sister, Vivian. Now, communicating with Sarah from the other side, they’ll hunt the man who did it and the people who would do it again―to Sarah.

My Review:

I can't believe this is book 20 in this series.  It reads amazingly well as a stand alone.  I never once felt lost throughout this entire read.  Told in 3 parts, we see Sarah Roberts grow, not only as a woman settling into herself, but as a hero in her own right.  Her visions from her dead sister help to prevent certain crimes from happening and have also saved her own life on several occasions.  However, almost the entire book holds on to her going after the man who killed the sister she didn't even know existed. 

For a book that's over 400 pages long, it's extremely fast paced and keeps your attention with the short chapters.   I did feel that some things were a bit repetitive.  Here she goes again, back in peril, getting out of it, showing her strength, yada yada.  However, it never took away from me wanting to see how she was going to get out of it- IF she did - and what would happen when and if she reached her end goal.  Just how much can one woman take?!  I will say one thing though - in movies and books alike it seems when the villain EVER gets a chance to kill the person who has been after them for years, they NEVER shoot them in the head!  And never check to see that they are actually dead. WHY?!  

I really found the concept of the autowriting and getting information from the dead extremely interesting.  Even more so after I read the afterword from the author.  Whenever I see an author take an experience from his own life and bring it into a book, I cannot help but like that book even more.  This paranormal touch to the otherwise action thriller was a nice addition.
