"As they do each June, the Foxes have driven the winding roads of Appalachia to drop off their children for a two-week stay at their grandmother's. Here, twelve-year-old Thea can run free and breathe in the smells of pine and fresh bread and Grammie's handmade candles. But as her parents head back to suburban Virginia, they have no idea they're about to cross paths with a ticking time bomb. Back in Kentucky, Thea and her grandmother Lucy both awaken from the same nightmare. And though the two have never discussed the special kind of sight they share, they know as soon as their tearful eyes meet that something terrible has happened. The kids will be staying with Grammie now in Redbud Hollow, and thanks to Thea's vision, their parents' killer will spend his life in supermax. Over time, Thea will make friends, build a career, find love. But that ability to see into minds and souls still lurks within her, and though Grammie calls it a gift, it feels more like a curse-because the inmate who shattered her childhood has the same ability. Thea can hear his twisted thoughts and witness his evil acts from miles away. He knows it, and hungers for vengeance. A long, silent battle will be waged between them--and eventually bring them face to face, and head to head."--… (mais)

Mind Games by Nora Roberts is a somewhat suspenseful, partial romance novel set in the hills of Appalachia. I finished this one in two days, I couldn't put it down.

Thea and Rem are visiting Lucy Lannigan, or Grammie, for their annual two weeks when Thea and Rem's parents are murdered. With their gift of sight, Thea and Lucy see what happens in their dreams. But Thea's sight is stronger, and she's able to help the police put Ray Riggs away for more than just the murder of her parents. Now, the kids are living with Grammie full-time, and they learn how hard work and caring for others makes for a more happy and connected community.

Even though Thea and Rem are grown up, Redbud Hollow is their home, and Thea creates her own life there. But Ray Riggs is determined to break Thea down. Ever since the night she connected to Ray's mind and helplessly watched as he killed her parents, they've been playing cat and mouse games with each other's minds. Ray has nothing better to do with his time than try to break through Thea's locked mind, and he's getting closer to his goal.

A novel of close-knit family, a community who helps each other, and a romance that Thea didn't see coming. I'm not really sure what genre to put this in. It's not really thriller, mystery, or suspense, but it's also not a full-on romance. However, once you get past the childhood chapters, the pace does quicken. I finished this in record time because I couldn't put it down, there were no good stopping points. The writing was great, making me cry at more than one point. All of the characters were exceptionally well-developed, I fully believe that these could be real people.

All in all, this was a great novel if you enjoy Nora Roberts' books. If you like a strong female protagonist, family who looks out for each other, and tight friendships with some paranormal mind-reading thrown in, then definitely give this one a try!

Thank you to @StMartinsPress and @NetGalley for a digital copy for review consideration. All opinions are honest and my own. ( )

I received this e-book ARC of Mind Games by Nora Roberts through Net Galley from Macmillan Audio in exchange for a truthful review.

After the first few chapters, I was ready to put this one down because I was scared about what was coming/being foreshadowed: a total downer, a great loss, children in peril, women in peril.
But I'm so glad I stuck it out, as this one was so much more!

Mind Games, like many Nora Roberts, has a bit of a fantasy/supernatural bent. Love of rural Kentucky shines through.

Yes, there are losses which will make you weepy, but there are also loving family relationships and precious/precocious children who will make you smile and chuckle. And gaming! And lots of descriptive passages about nature and food. Lots of food.

I listened to the audiobook and narrator January LaVoy was once again amazing, embodying female, male, young children, older adults, Kentucky and Virginia voices seamlessly. ( )

Mind Games by Nora Roberts has a unique concept. I have been reading Nora Roberts since I was a tween, when the author published her first book. As with all of the author’s stories, I found Mind Games to be easy to read. The main characters are likeable (for the most part). The first third of the book was spent on Thea’s childhood. I understand providing background on the main characters, but this was a bit much (and it was a tad boring). I liked the paranormal premise, but it was tame. It could have been so much more. I wanted Thea to embrace her gift, hone it, and use it to help others. The love interest does not show up until the halfway point which is unusual for a romance. The ending was a letdown. I understood the video game aspect, but it was unexciting. My favorite character was Thea’s dog. Mind Games felt like it was written by another author. ( )

After seeing the death of her parents through her "gift," Thea Fox helps the police to catch their killer, but the connection she feels with the killer haunts her. As time goes on, Thea gets her degree and a job as a video game designer, while the mental blocks that she puts in place against her parents' killer fluctuates with her emotions. Her home in Appalachia where she can be near her brother and grandmother becomes her sanctuary until even that safety is threatened by a man with no hope of ever leaving prison.

Mind Games is an unusual novel and difficult to rate and review. Much of the story takes place in Thea's mind, hence the name of the book. The rest of the plot involves the day to day lives of the important characters, which involves slow moving but comforting events. The first half of the book deals heavily with grief and is difficult to read for that reason. The second half of the book shows Thea's life including her budding romance with her next door neighbor and former rock star. Although it has a satisfying ending, awkward time jumps and a senseless third act break up make this book difficult to enjoy. Overall, Mind Games isn't one of Nora Roberts' best efforts. ( )

Nora Roberts has written another nail-biting, nerve-jangling suspense saga in her latest, Mind Games! A touching story of love and grief with an epic battle of good versus evil personified! After their parents' brutal murders, Thea and her brother, Rem go to live with their grandmother. The grandmother, mother, and Thea have the gift of sight and Thea in her mind's eye sees how the parents were murdered. She helps the police find and convict the murderer, Riggs, who also has this gift. He is sentenced to life in prison. This ability causes havoc in all their lives. What a well written story that kept me reading and enjoying every word. What an amazing ending! ( )
