DARK WITNESS by Charlaine Harris & Rachel Caine

Crosses are often left to mark the place where someone has died. They are a silent witness to violent ends. Here, they are a symbol that nurture’s a womans fears. She is the single parent of a teenaged daughter. But her fears aren’t just paranoia because she is a parent; she has secrets. If you know the authors, you are already clued into the fact that something of the paranormal is afoot here.

This was a story that was pretty well told. I could identify wth the mother and her protective nature. Why she likes to keep a short leash has a nice pay off. I do think that a couple of convenient twists make this one just good rather than great. Still, if you like a strong female lead that discovers a power she never knew she had, you will enjoy this story.
