The Night Visitor

   The Night Visitor by Dianne Emley, Netgalley Review

Amazon Blurb -

Gorgeous and successful, Rory Langtry seemed to have it all. Daughter of a movie star and sister of a supermodel, Rory was engaged to sexy artist, Junior Lara. But her bright future went dark one terrible, bloody night that left her sister dead and the accused murderer—Junior—in an extended coma.

Now, five years later, Rory appears to have put the past behind her. She has a wonderful new fiancé and heads a successful cosmetics company. Yet dark secrets threaten. Across town, Junior lies close to death but before he departs he seeks to clear his name.

It starts with a feeling. It turns into a vision. Soon Rory is having sensations that only Junior could experience—from the horrifying to the erotic. Then she learns details about the awful night that only Junior could know, newfound knowledge with potentially fatal consequences. When another act of violence rocks her family, Rory plunges deeper into the unsolved mystery, led by an inexplicable visitor to a dangerous time and place where all will be revealed at last. But until then, Junior will not let her go.

Rory Langtry is a gorgoeus successful business woman.  She founded her own beauty biz and has built it from the ground up.  All this through the sorrow and tradgedy of her sister Anya's murder and her fiancĂ© Junior Lara being in a coma for the past five years.  A coma brought on by the supposed self inflicted gunshot AFTER allegedly killing Anya in his apartment. 

 Junior was an up and coming artist and he and Rory were a hot beautiful couple.  Anya was a gorgoeus supermodel who was never happy and decided she would stir the pot a bit.  Commissioning Junior to paint her nude in a piece that was almost identical to one he did of Rory, Junior's family believed Rory was the one who killed her sister and shot Junior out of jealousy.  He is in a vegetative state a shell of who he was.

Rory is engaged to attorney Tom, and on the evening of her family's annual fundraiser for families of murder victims, Rory starts having the beginning of many odd out of body experiences giving her a glimpse of the night of the murder in a way only Junior could see. Her body starts developing sores where Junior has them, she can feel the sensation of suffocation when he is having his lungs suctioned.  She has never gone to see him once since this whole tradgedy took place.  Now she finds herself having to go to him and find out what is happening, what is this mental connection that has formed.

Her fiance is worried, her mother is doing everything she can to stop her and her stepbrother is trying to pull a coup to oust her as head of her company.  The ending will leave you floored!

I really liked this book, a nice paranormal twist, and a who dunnit that really had me surprised.  Emley has a nice smooth writing style.   I highly recommend this read.
