Reviewed by Michelle Randall for Readers' Favorite

Paranormal fiction can take you to an infinite number of places. T.L. McDonald takes us to the beach in her book Para~nition. It is slated to become the first book in a series featuring the main character Julie Winters. Julie has dreams of murders so real that she wakes with the bruises she saw in her dream. At first the police think she's nuts, then a detective named Kyle tries to force her into working with him. Julie is a strong woman and continually butts heads with Kyle as they both try to figure out Julie's dreams and prevent future murders.

T.L. McDonald tantalizes us with the concept of seeing a real murder in our dreams. It has a wonderful plot that flirts with paranormal abilities and a touch of witchcraft mixed in for added flavor. The characters are well written and you find yourself siding with them right away. I would recommend this for Young Adults and older, especially fans of the paranormal. I also enjoyed the strong character of Julie that T.L. McDonald created, and I believe she will have great appeal to readers. Para~nition is very hard to put down.
