Out of the Blue by Caroline Clemmons

Book Description:
A desperate flight from a dangerous man plunges Deirdre Dougherty off a cliff-and into the future... Swept through a time portal 165 years beyond the life she knew in rural Ireland, Deirdre plunges into a lake in central Texas. The brooding man from her precognizant visions rescues her but demands answers she cannot give. Deirdre knows only that he is in danger, and the source has a familiar vibe. Police Detective Brendan Hunter wants answers. Who shot him and killed his partner? Why? And why does Deirdre know details only he and his late partner knew? The beautiful psycho's story has to be a colossal fabrication. He wants her gone before he becomes even more fascinated with her. Together they must solve the riddle of Deirdre's displacement, battle a drug scandal and stay one step ahead of the enemy-without knowing friend from foe.

My Thoughts:
I absolutely adore this book! Deirdre is from Ireland 1845, and when a mob chases her she jumps off a cliff and lands in Texas present day! Brendan is the police officer who rescues her and refuses to believe her story. He is on leave after being shot and is searching for answers to the questions of who shot him and killed his partner and why. He and Deirdre get tangled in a mess of questions and have to find the answers before the murders get to them!
This book was quite original, romantic and with a touch of mystery. I fell in love with Deirdre's character from the beginning. The confusion, temper, visions and overflowing heart of her character are endeering. Brendan is a wonderful, caring man who does amazing things for others and tries to pass himself off as a man 'just doing his job' and nothing more. Blossom is Brendan's mom and a completely priceless character. She is funny, loving, and smart. The combination of these three main characters and the cast of other characters weave a wonderfully fun and suspenseful story.
I give this book a 5/5. Go buy it, and once you start reading it you won't be able to put it down until you've read the whole thing!
