Scavenger Hunt & Giveaway: Chosen by Paula Bradley

Shy and introverted Mariah Carpenter has concealed a hidden talent from childhood that, according to her mother, would brand her a freak. Now a fateful encounter has caused her secret skill - an extraordinary psychic ability - to become greatly enhanced. Suddenly, she has a purpose for her gift, as her vision gives her the ability to find kidnapped children telepathically. But is this a blessing or a curse?

My Thoughts:
This story had a unique concept in that a talent that Mariah had always considered a curse that she had to hide develops into a gift that she feels compelled to use. I do admit that I was expecting a different kind of story and it went down a path I wasn't expecting, but it was an enjoyable ride!

Scavenger Hunt!
Just before she slipped into a deep and dreamless sleep, she observed, again in a haze, the man smiling down on her. Clipping the metal tube onto his belt, his eyes betrayed not only sorrow but apprehensive.

He shook his head and pressed a button the belt.
