Vision of Shadows (Vision #1) by Vincent Morrone

Is Bristol Blackburn about to meet the love of her life...or her killer? 

After the death of her parents, Bristol Blackburn's life is thrown into chaos and she's forced to move to Spirit, a small town where shadows are stirring. As she learns to navigate her new school and figures out how to keep her psychic abilities secret from her family, Bristol comes face to face with the boy who makes a regular appearance in her dreams: the gorgeous, possibly deadly, Payne McKnight. Soon she’ll find out if Payne will be the love of her life, or the end of it — and she has no idea which possibility scares her more. 

And that's not even the worst of it. Strange shadows are haunting her dreams, and they're up to something that could put Bristol and the lives of everyone she loves in jeopardy.

Once started reading, I just couldn't put it down. It is full of suspense and intrigue. There is a mystery around Bristol and Spirit town. From the very first page you'll be totally engrossed and wanting to know more about all the mysterious stuff that keeps happening. Some of the mysteries unravel by the end of the book but some of the questions still remained unanswered.
Bristol has always seen visions of boy, she knows that she will see him soon some day. He will be something to her, may be a lover or her murderer, she is not sure yet. Then her parents die in a strange accident and she moves to Spirit town to live with her uncle and his family. From then on strange things start happening. someone or something wants her dead and they will go to any lengths to do so. Even if it meant harming or killing other people in the process.
Payne has always been haunted by the fact that he survived when his mother died in an accident. He is wreck-less and keeps putting himself in danger. But things change when Bristol moves to town. He is attracted to her and wants to live so that he can be with her. Although things are not easy for them, still he will do whatever it takes to protect her.
The story is quite interesting. It has family feuds, curses, people with supernatural abilities, love, hatred, ghosts and shadow creatures. All the characters are likable and there are some funny moments that made me laugh. Overall I enjoyed reading it and will recommend to fans of paranormal and mystery.
