Review: Hide'n Go Seek (Psychic Visions #2) by Dale Mayer

Synopsis (Goodreads):
A twisted game of Hide'n Go Seek forces an unlikely alliance between a no-nonsense FBI agent and a search-and-rescue worker.

Celebrated search-and-rescue worker Kali Jordon has hidden her psychic abilities by crediting her canine partner Shiloh with the recoveries. But Kali knows the grim truth--The Sight that she inherited from her grandmother allows her to trace violent energy unerringly to victims of murder. No one knows her secret until a twisted killer challenges her to a deadly game of Hide'n Go Seek that threatens those closest to her.

Now she must rely on FBI Special Agent Grant Summers, a man who has sworn to protect her, even as he suspects there's more to Kali and Shiloh than meets the eye. As the killer draws a tighter and tighter circle around Kali, she and Grant find there's no place to hide.

Are her visions the key to finding the latest victim alive or will this twisted game of Hide'n Go Seek cost her...everything?
My Thoughts:  Much like the first book in this series, I was sucked in immediately.  Kali is an extraordinary woman who does some incredibly draining, emotional work and it's taken its toll on her.  She's emotionally distanced herself from those around her when her formerly low-key psychic abilities begin to ramp up.  She has no one to turn to about this and combined with a tragedy she witnessed 6 months before, she's a bit of a wreck.

I really liked the dynamic between Grant and Kali.  Grant knew he wanted to get to know her better the first time he saw her years before but the timing wasn't right and they never connected.  Now, he's in her life and the more he sees the more he clearly knows that he wants her.  Of course, nothing's ever easy when you're trying to woo a woman in the middle of a murder investigation and Mr. Serial Killer throws up several roadblocks for the potential couple.

The tension is high, the action moves quickly and the chemistry between Grant and Kali singes. Plus, there's a dog.  How can you resist a hardworking dog who finds dead bodies?  Answer: You can't.
