The Tempest Murders by P.M. Terrell Review!

About the Book
Detective Ryan O'Clery is working a series of homicides when he discovers a journal kept by an uncle five generations earlier, detailing the same type of murders as the Night of the Big Wind swept the Atlantic Ocean across Ireland in 1839. As Hurricane Irene barrels toward the North Carolina coastline, Ryan discovers even the killer's description matches exactly. And as he falls in love with television reporter Cathleen Reilly, he begins to wonder if she is the reincarnation of Caitlyn O'Conor, the woman lost to the killer as the storm raged in Ireland-and if he is the reincarnation of Constable Rian Kelly. Now he's in a race to rescue Cathleen before the killer finds her-or is history destined to repeat itself?

My Thoughts:
Detective Ryan O'Cleary has dreams about this beautiful woman, even before he read his uncles diary, so when he meets Cathleen Reilly he is literally swept off his feet by her. They become lovers. Hurricane Irene is on its way and since Cathleen is a newscaster, she will be covering the storm. 

There have been a series of murders that mimic the ones that took place in Ireland in the 1800's. All the women murdered in both era's resemble each other. Cathleen also resembles the women murdered and Ryan is concerned for her safety as she also appears to be the woman in Ryan's dreams, Caitlyn O'Connor, who supposedly perished in the Night of the Big Wind in Ireland in a past century. Ryan is very headstrong, a Irish trait for sure, and he is determined to find the killer and bring him to justice.

The secondary characters are Ryan's sister Claire and her twin girls. I loved the girls, spunky, sassy and they love their uncle Ryan very much. I found this to be a fast paced, tense story that takes the reader into the tempest, the hurricane and the serial killer. Very intriguing, with an element of time travel. The ending left me wondering a bit though, but all in all I really enjoyed the book and highly recommend it!!

I received a copy of this book for review and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
