I received Human Blend by Lori Pescatore a while ago from the author for review. It has finally made its way to the top of the TBR mountain. Here is the product description:
Escaping from them had been difficult enough, now Laney needs to keep hidden. All she wanted was to be on her own. Laney is not like other girls... she has very special abilities that set her apart from others. How or why she came about these abilities is a mystery she has yet to unfold. Haunted by memories and flashbacks of the suffering she endured at the hands of her captors, she changes her appearance and hides out in a small town. Ignoring her own warnings, she begins a relationship with a local boy. The relationship turns dangerous when the boy begins developing similar abilities. This development does not fall under the radar of the men who are trying to recapture her. A young doctor's interest is piqued when he witnesses her mysteriously curing a young child's illness. He befriends her due to his growing fascination with uncovering the true nature of her abilities, but not without harboring secrets of his own. Laney's new life falls apart when she meets a young intern that seems to have all the answers to her questions. The information sends her into a tail spin. Thoughts of going on the run once again are thwarted as those whom she was running from find her.
Beginning:
She vowed to be more careful this time. 
Friday 56: 
"Neal, go sit somewhere else. Your're gonna scare her off before she even starts," Joy said, sitting down with her breakfast.
This sounds like an interesting paranormal to me. What do you think?

  5. Don't we all tend to make vows like that? That we quite often don't keep? I'm betting she doesn't....
