Autumn Rain is accustomed to using her ability to read imprints to solve seemingly unsolvable cases. Yet when she goes searching for the sister of a friend, she is embroiled in the make-believe world of live theater, where it's difficult to tell reality from playacting and where everyone appears to have something to hide.
Autumn must team up again with Detective Shannon Martin to learn the truth about and eight-year-old mystery that involves a new murder and more missing actors. Working so closely with the compelling detective further complicates their uncertain relationship and tests her loyalty to her once-boyfriend Jake Ryan.
When her sister, Tawnia, becomes involved in the case, Autumn finds herself in a deadly struggle to save them both from facing their own final call.
I love this series of books, and this one is no exception! I enjoy the characters, and the underlying mystery in their family dynamics, as well as the twists and turns in the current adventures. I can't wait for more - I hope the series goes on and on...
This has been a fun series to read. I was nervous at first about the paranormal twist to the books, but it has been a fun addition to the stories. I really hope more books are coming. I can't wait to learn more about her biological family.
I could not finish it since it was soo similar to the others in this series. Sorry
Imagine that if you touched an object that had been held during an emotional moment you could not just feel that emotion, but sometimes, depending on the degree of how powerful that emotion was--love, hate, contentment, jealousy, peace, anger, etc.--you actually relived the moment as if it were you. Confused? Well suppose there was a glass and when you touched the glass you suddenly saw yourself stirring a white powder into the lemonade that was now in the glass. And your thoughts were suddenly those of the person who had done that very thing at an earlier time--thoughts of murder.
Autumn Rain's abilities to feel "imprints" have both tormented her and driven her. In the two previous books, "Imprints" and "Shades of Gray" she was able to use her abilities to help solve murders--to where she now consults with the police department. However, this time it's complicated. The imprints are on props that a theater company has used for years. Reality is getting confused with acting.
The story is filled with conflicts. With one girl murdered and another missing, both in the same acting company, and within hours of each other, logic says the two would be connected. However, none of the suspects (that seem to multiply every hour) appear to have motive for both. She finds herself torn between protecting her family and helping a friend--hopefully in time to save a life. And then there is the personal confusion Autumn needs to sort out--whether she wants to be with the devastatingly good-looking man that is her best friend, or the police detective whose eyes unnerve her.
I enjoyed "Final Call." It is fast paced and keeps the reader guessing, though I found myself wishing Autumn would just kiss the right guy already! I liked Autumn's quirky preference to go barefoot. I worried about her choice of a black sweatshirt over cargo pants, but I reasoned that she must be adorable to have two men competing for her. Because it was intriguing, as were the characters, I read this book much quicker than usual.
I’m not going to tell you the synopsis of this book. You can read the publisher’s take below. But I will tell you I loved it. I have read the two previous books in this series (Shades of Gray and Imprints) and enjoyed them immensely. Sometimes, as a series progresses, the characters lose steam and likeability. This was not this case. Autumn and Tawnia are vibrant and deep. They aren’t surface characters where their emotions and actions are predictable and “cookie-cutter”. This book is going on my favorites list. I stayed up all night to finish this book. I just had to know what happened! If reading were a drug...this would be the ultimate fix.
