  TOUCH - GAYLEEN FROESE

Touch is the story of how Anna Gareau goes on a visit to Victoria and accidentally taps into the mind of a killer.  Anna is trying to lead a somewhat normal life and is on a trip to deliver an item for her friend and boss, an antiques dealer.  However Anna has a gift or, as she thinks of it, a curse where she is able to obtain visions by touching personal items of people.

Anna checks into a motel and in the morning a murdered woman is found in the hotel swimming pool.  As she is trying to retrieve her purse she accidentally left in the pool room the night before, she takes on the ruse of a police consultant.  From there she meets Colette Kostyna, whose boss is an author who writes books exposing other's secrets.  They wind up hiring Anna to investigate the crime for them. 

It soon becomes clear that Anna has lied about being a police consultant however she and Colette continue the investigation themselves as more bodies turn and weird things keep happening that are all connected to a paper called "The Rail".  Colette's boss was to meet the drowned woman on the morning of her death but was running late for the appointment.  Anna feels a compulsion to stay on not only for the money but due to one of her visions.

From the cover blurb and what I had read online about this book, I truly thought it would be right up my alley.  However, it was somewhat slow for my taste in books and parts of it were just too unbelievable for me.  I truly believe with a somewhat faster pace and Anna using more of her talent at touching this book could have been much better.
