Did I enjoy this book:
I did enjoy this book. It was a good read that had me guessing throughout.

Sadie knows things. She knows when bad things are going to happen . . . but not really. She has a clairvoyance that really shakes her. I would be shaken if I had “visions” like she does. Anyway . . . I felt bad for Sadie. She deserves something better than what she has been dealt. Her boyfriend is a stick-in-the-mud. Her sister is a selfish brat. Her brother . . . I don’t even know how to describe that asshole. Hey, look at that, I could describe him. And don’t get me started on his wife. Wow. Her dad is gone due to a stroke, and her mother keeps choosing sides. Sadie doesn’t have the best home/family life.

Sadie’s love interests were interesting, to say the least. I wouldn’t have guessed either of them would have been a fit for Sadie. But you will root for them regardless. Fitzy and Max bring different things to Sadie. They each have positives and negatives. One wins out, in my opinion. 😉

Killing Me Softly gives you a bit of everything. It definitely had me glued to my Kindle from beginning to end. In fact, I was about 20% from finishing the book when my Kindle gave me the battery warning. I ignored the warning and kept reading. I had to finish it before the battery died.


Would I recommend it: I would. It was a good read that will have your hooked from the beginning.


About the book – from Goodreads: 
Sadie Perkins has a sixth sense about things—especially people dying. Her clairvoyance has never bothered her until she starts to believe that her visions are causing the deaths of those around her. After her latest relationship ends … badly … Sadie swears off love for good. While searching for an uncomplicated life, Sadie finds her hands full not only with a home renovation project but with defending herself against suspicion of murder. There’s a fine line between predicting someone’s death and causing it. Has Sadie finally crossed that line?

Enter contractor Max Schultz, who is not only good at working on houses, but he’s good at working on Sadie too. Much to Max’s dismay, as he’s trying to win Sadie’s heart, he finds Sadie’s first love, Henry Fitzsimmons, is back in the picture, snooping around.

Sadie doesn’t know which way to turn or who to trust, including herself. Can Sadie clear her name and open her heart all at the same time?
