Monday - Book Review Roundup: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Emerson has never had an easy life. Not only does she see things that aren't there, but her parents died in a terrible accident that left her damaged and broken. After a long stint in a mental hospital, she goes to live with her brother, Thomas, in Tennessee. Thomas knows about Em's ability and wants to help her find some answers. He hires Michael, a consultant from the secret organization called the Hourglass. Michael not only believes everything Emerson tells him about her visions, but wants to help her define her ability to prevent a death that should have never happened.

You know that feeling you get when you really don't want a book to end? Hourglass definitely left me with that feeling. This is a wonderful and refreshing read. I fell in love with Emerson's sarcastic and snarky (yet authentic) voice immediately.

I can't wait to see what else Myra McEntire writes. The concept for Hourglass is unique and original, and probably one of the best books I've read this year.
