A talented painter in her early thirties, Samille Sweeney has achieved enviable success: her work sells at an exclusive New York City gallery and her popularity is at an all-time high. Sweeney, as she is called by those close to her, loves her work and is content with her life.

  

Then she begins to experience the dreams -- lush, vivid dreams drenched in vibrant hues -- which are influencing her artwork. But the true dangers of her visions are about to be revealed where Sweeney least expects it: in her paintings. After a creative frenzy she can barely recall, Sweeney discovers she has rendered a disturbing image -- a graphic murder scene. When a real-life murder mirrors her creation, Sweeney is thrust into suspicious light. Now, with every stroke of her brush, she risks incriminating herself with her inexplicable knowledge of a deadly crime.

With the breathless excitement that distinguishes all of her blockbusters, Linda Howard grips the imagination and touches the heart as only she can in Now You See Her.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 2/17/2014

    " This is one of my favorite Linda Howard books, even though I can see some flaws in it. The heroine is one of the quirkiest - you never know what she'll say next, and sometimes she doesn't, either. When Richard Worth (eye roll - ridiculous name for a wealthy financier) asks Sweeney out to dinner, she blurts, "God, no!" and then compounds this by telling him he'll want time and sex and things like that, which she doesn't have time for. But Richard, in the middle of a really nasty divorce, is captivated by the resistant Sweeney, a talented painter who is trying to deal with some very peculiar talents: in the past year, she has begun to see ghosts, traffic lights turn green at her approach, she knows all the answers on Jeopardy! and now she's painting murders - before they happen. That hits a bit too close to home, as she begins a painting and lives in dread of learning who the victim is. Some of the flaws include Richard, a man in his mid-thirties who has a knack for amassing wealth. Once upon a time, he was an Army Ranger, and it seems he hasn't lost his skills or reflexes despite more than a decade out of the field. Uh, really? He finds Sweeney's celibacy charming and honors her refusal to have sex with him until he is officially a free man...but proceeds to perform acts that sound a lot like sex to me. Another flaw is Sweeney's 180-turnabout from completely self-absorbed to lover-who-is-willing-to-have-a-baby. Doesn't make much sense. But it doesn't have to. This is a really enjoyable book, mostly for Sweeney's conversation, not just with Richard, but anyone she encounters, like the exhausted cop to whom she offers a pot of coffee rather than a cup. There are a crew of secondary characters, some of whom are not well-rounded, or have conflicting characteristics, but don't worry about them, just go along for the ride - it's fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 1/25/2014

    " Eh. The book was good, but it seemed a bit rushed and the author didnt seem to do much research into the paranormal. It seemed as though she was winging it. Everything was vague and that was frustrating. I liked the story and the writing for the most part though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/24/2014

    " Howard is one of my go-to gals, and this is one of my favorites by her. I first read it years ago, back when I still checked books out from the library. I still own it, which explains why I don't check out books anymore (except in my kindle, since they return themselves!). Sweeney and Richard are terrific characters with amazing chemistry. Tried and true!!! "

    " I loved this book! Linda Howard does a fantastic job at creating characters you fall in love with! This book was a fast pace read, and I couldn't put it down.

    " I love Linda Howard. She is an excellent writer. Always develops her characters well. This book was very enjoyable. I loved the 2 main characters. Sweeney is a 'what you see is what you get' person. Love that. Richard was such a masculine figure. Loved that. "

    " Enjoyable romantic suspense with a good plot and I always like a hero determined to get his woman. It was refreshing to see a heroine who was honest and open about her feelings. Artist Sweeney is discovering she has special abilities and finds herself attracted to her friends soon to be ex-husband. "
