Reason to Believe by Roxanne St. Claire

The Bullet Catchers series immediately became a favorite from the very first release, and although I read the WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE anthology which included REASON TO BELIEVE several years ago, I enjoyed revisiting two likable characters that are facing much peril. Roxanne St. Claire manages to make her storylines believable at all times, and even the touch of paranormal in this book seems credible, making me consider the possibility of the events actually taking place. REASON TO BELIEVE entwines action, mysteries and passion to create a suspenseful romantic adventure.

Using her psychic capabilities lets Arianna Killian comfort people who have lost someone important to them. She even has her own show on television where a message from the deceased individual can be communicated through her to a person still living. But lately she has been experiencing visions about how someone was killed, yet has no idea whose death she is seeing. Arianna is also receiving some particularly threatening emails. Fear leads her to call The Bullet Catchers, an agency that employs very proficient bodyguards. The man sent to protect her is Chase Ryker, and he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. But there is no way he will ever be convinced her skills are genuine.

It quickly becomes apparent the mysterious threats do pose a risk to Arianna, and learning the person’s identity from any clues is imperative.  She and Chase become close while checking out possible evidence, and he comes to understand there just might be more to the psychic than he first thought. They soon come to realize any facts Arianna obtains through her visions might get her killed.

When a Bullet Catcher agent skeptical of anything supernatural must protect a TV psychic, keeping things totally professional is not without effort, especially when doubts form. Chase is a rational thinker, where his opinions are based on what he can prove. But from the instant Arianna speaks to him, he scrambles to find a valid explanation for her comments. I delighted in seeing his scientific mind try to make sense of her remarks. Always a competent bodyguard, Chase also tries to concentrate on his duty and ignore how Arianna makes him feel. But her bubbly personality touches something deep within him. Their reactions to each other are fun to watch, as their responses to the many unforeseen situations that arose are not predictable, thus keeping my interest high. REASON TO BELIEVE is definitely entertaining.

Looking for whoever is threatening Arianna in various ways requires gathering the truth about numerous unknown details. As she and Chase investigate, surprises abound as information comes to light. Roxanne St. Claire knows how to captivate the reader and keep guesses coming. If none of The Bullet Catchers stories have ever been read, discovering this one will make you want to know more about the other elite agents working for the organization.
