"See Me"

See me just as I see you . . .

Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. With a history of violence and bad decisions behind him and the threat of prison dogging his every step, he's determined to walk a straight line. To Colin, that means applying himself single-mindedly toward his teaching degree and avoiding everything that proved destructive in his earlier life. Reminding himself daily of his hard-earned lessons, the last thing he is looking for is a serious relationship.

Maria Sanchez, the hardworking daughter of Mexican immigrants, is the picture of conventional success. With a degree from Duke Law School and a job at a prestigious firm in Wilmington, she is a dark-haired beauty with a seemingly flawless professional track record. And yet Maria has a traumatic history of her own, one that compelled her to return to her hometown and left her questioning so much of what she once believed.

A chance encounter on a rain-swept road will alter the course of both Colin and Maria's lives, challenging deeply held assumptions about each other and ultimately, themselves. As love unexpectedly takes hold between them, they dare to envision what a future together could possibly look like . . . until menacing reminders of events in Maria's past begin to surface.

As a series of threatening incidents wreaks chaos in Maria's life, Maria and Colin will be tested in increasingly terrifying ways. Will demons from their past destroy the tenuous relationship they've begun to build, or will their love protect them, even in the darkest hour?

Rich in emotion and fueled with suspense, SEE ME reminds us that love is sometimes forged in the crises that threaten to shatter us . . . and that those who see us for who we truly are may not always be the ones easiest to recognize. 

My Thoughts...

After the last two books I read by Nicholas Sparks, I said I would never read another one of his books. Why?  Because he irritated me! How?  Because I was disappointed in the endings of the last two books. In the last chapter or two of those books, up pops the supernatural elements, which I hated. I hate anything to do with the "Supernatural". It ruined the whole of both books for me. However....

I gave him another chance with this his latest book, "See Me".  Everything I read about it gave no indication that it had any supernatural elements, and thankfully it did not! Happily, I was able again to enjoy one of my favorite authors, Nicholas Sparks, books. Thank you Mr. Sparks for a fun, suspenseful, page-turner of a book, I liked it enough to award it 4 "See Them" stars****. However...this still was not a favorite book by him, he has written much better books than this book. 

This book is a part of my personal library, and I own this book.


  1. I have a love/hate relationship with his books! Glad this one turned out to be a win for you.

  2. Gigi Ann, I did not know he had a new book out! I have read many of his books. I'm glad you enjoyed this one. Thanks for your honest review.
