Saving Tampa – Jo Webnar


The Blurb
For as long as she could remember, Rachel Cunningham feared and hated her psychic ability. When a strange man accidentally touches her, she sees the death of thousands. Rachel knows the FBI won't believe her, but she has to try. Lives are at stake. Special Agent Arrons dismisses her information as a publicity stunt, yet his conscience nags him.
When Rachel identifies an Al Qaida cell leader, Arrons puts his career at risk and issues an alert. Together they race against time to prevent a terrorist attack. Will the terrorists' threat succeed, or will Rachel and Arrons find the solution in time to Save Tampa?

 The Review

Rachel has always been different and as her mother puts it, she’s just a little bit more special than everyone else. Rachel has a gift and not the kind that she is happy with, the only sure thing about her Psychic ability is that she never knows when it will kick in. When she get a feeling by accidentally touching a passerby, she knows she has to do something or tell some one, and she does… with unexpected consequences.
When Special Agent Arrons is told that he has a job that is just right for him, he knows that it would not be a pleasure, but he was not expecting a woman, a dog and a premonition that may change the entire face of his city.
When Arrons goes on his gut feeling and follows Rachel’s vision, they uncover a more sinister plot than they could have ever imaged and they are in a race against time to prevent it.
Saving Tampa is absolutely a winner. Jo Webnar has not only given us a story that has a plot we can identify with, but characters that are intelligent, gutsy,  and also willing to go the distance in the name of truth and honour.
Rachel is a brilliant artist, challenged by the fact that she can and does get a glimpse of the future at the most unexpected time. When she does the right thing she ends up in the middle of more than she wants to be involved in and with an attraction that she hasn’t felt in a long time.
Arrons is up against a woman who knows what she wants and not afraid to speak her mind. Constantly impressed with her colourful choice of words, he is caught up in the chase to find a threat against his city while keeping the woman who’s becoming to mean more to him than he ever could have imagined safe.
Ms. Webnar has outshines all the books I have read this year. Saving Tampa holds you from the first page and with twist  and turns, emotional highs and lows you are caught in a web that is believable, gripping and have you hoping never let it end.
Ms. Webnar Saving Tampa will have you standing up and cheering loudly from the side stand.
