For no apparent reason, a stalker is threatening her, at the same time that she’s dealing with terrifying nightmares. Will her new ally, Officer Allen Lawrence understand her gift? Can she clarify her forebodings of evil, cope with the messages written in blood, and help find her kidnapped friend before more harm comes to Newville or herself? The time has come for Tiffany take a stand and fight for her safety and her sanity.

What people are saying about Evil Forebodings:

“When Christian belief is challenged by spiritual forces of darkness in a small town. . .who will ultimately triumph? You’ll need to read Evil Forebodings to discover the answer for yourself.

“A supernatural, paranormal novel with plenty of suspense and a bit of romance. From page one, I was getting tingles down my spine. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy supernatural, paranormal, suspense stories.”

Jeepers, Creepers, you won’t want to close those peepers! If you like scary books then you will like this one. This touches on spiritual warfare and the unseen evil that goes on in the world. I like that she wrote about the pastor and other believers praying during the town’s battle with darkness and evil.”

“The storyline was fascinating and unique. I loved that Tiffany could communicate with animals and that spiritual gifts and warfare are such a huge part of the story.” 

My Thoughts:

Have you ever had that feeling that something isn’t right? Maybe a deep unrest, maybe a dream gets you unsettled for the day. This is the story Carol Keen is telling. She definitely makes you feel the unease. Part of the story is related to her gift to read and understand animals. And her dog seems to know that, because he provides her with warnings that save her life and probably that of the whole town. A nicely told story about an evil that overtakes a town, an evil so bad that the town psychic ran away and consequentially got her life right with God.

The story really is full of forebodings and some disturbing issues having to do with demon possession, so be aware of that. It is a frightening read for a younger, less mature person. But there is a light-hearted side with the dear pets, good friends and a sweet budding romantic relationship.

What I didn’t like was that I got the impression that the story was about animals and Tiffany’s ability to understand them.  But I feel like there was more about a romance than about her relationship with the animals. One of the reasons I chose to review this, was that premise.  (I had additional issues with technical problems with the story, so I am going to re-read another version and may or may not modify this part of my review.)
