Deja vu-that feeling you get when you know you know someone or have been in the exact same situation-well that is happening in this novel. Ryan O'Clery, a police detective, has been having a recurring nightmare since a very young age which revolves around a woman who the man in the dream loves and loses. When Claire, a news reporter, appears from between his shrubbery one day-there is an instant attraction-SHE is the image of the woman his dreams have been about.

Will history repeat itself? Will nature's wild fury once again allow a merciless killer to separate these soul mates? Read this book to find out!! 5 Stars in my opinion!


About the Book: (from Amazon)


Detective Ryan O’Clery is working a series of homicides when he discovers a journal kept by an uncle five generations earlier, detailing the same type of murders as the Night of the Big Wind swept the Atlantic Ocean across Ireland in 1839. As Hurricane Irene barrels toward the North Carolina coastline, Ryan discovers even the killer’s description matches exactly. And as he falls in love with television reporter Cathleen Reilly, he begins to wonder if she is the reincarnation of Caitlyn O’Conor, the woman lost to the killer as the storm raged in Ireland—and if he is the reincarnation of Constable Rian Kelly. Now he’s in a race to rescue Cathleen before the killer finds her—or is history destined to repeat itself?
