The Scent of Rain and Lightning was a great book. It was just what I needed, I was feeling a little bored with my typical paranormal books. Early on in this book I fell completely in love with the Linder family. Nancy Pickard did an amazing job portraying these unforgettable people. Each one of...

I won this book from Goodreads, and for the most part I liked it. The main character, Jody was very like-able and well developed, her family the same. I enjoyed the mystery and was surprised by the end, when it was solved. SPOILER ALERT!!But, I couldn't give it higher rating for two reasons. (and I ...
