Officer Daniel Sinclair had been a dreamer all his life and now is no different. He has returned home to take care of his brother. Now that he has picked up Cleo from the train station, he takes her to get settled in at the hotel before meeting the person who requested her abilities as a psychic. The one thing the people in his hometown can do is spot an outsider a mile away, and Cleo fits the bill.

Cleo is trying to get on with her life and she has taken on a new job in a different place. She is her own worst enemy with not believing in herself as a psychic; when Daniel shows he doesn’t believe in her, she becomes defensive with him. When she is asked to use her psychic skills on some of the townspeople, she gets more than expected. Still confused about her feeling for him causes her to make some choices that will have Daniel following her.

Bad Karma is quite the story of two very emotional people that need each other more than they realized. These two characters found ways to pick at each other more than normal, instead of saying what they really felt towards one another. One thing that came of their dysfunctional attitudes is that Daniel’s brother learned how to live without dependence on him. There were some murders committed, new relationships formed and blistering hot sex.

Ms. Weir has done a nice job of storytelling of how people can show negative feelings regarding psychics. It kept my attention from the start of the book until the end, trying to understand what was going on with Cleo. The history given surrounding both main characters was very informative, and gave me a better understanding of their characters. She knew that she was a psychic but doubts her abilities because of a tragedy that she blamed herself for. The ending is not what I expected and I won’t give it away here. So read and enjoy.
