At a Glance: I’m not sure what it is, but I always find myself looking for the next Edward Kendrick story. Maybe it’s that his books are always easy reads, very entertaining, no matter what the subject, and the characters always get their HEA.

Blurb: Artist Daniel Chase moves into the house he inherited from his grandfather — with the proviso he must live there or lose it. Soon after, he begins to get premonitions that something isn’t right. Then he meets Griffin Pryce, a handsome man who lives off the grid. They become friends when Griffin agrees to become the subject for one of Daniel’s paintings.
Before that can happen, Daniel’s ex Ray arrives, wanting to partner with Daniel to turn the house into a fancy restaurant. When Daniel says no, Ray sends a man to threaten him if he doesn’t sign the contract Ray has drawn up. Daniel refuses and things go from bad to worse.
With Griffin’s help, can Daniel stop Ray’s machinations? As the attraction between Daniel and Griffin grows stronger, will it — and they — survive what Ray does next?
Review: In Premonitions we meet Daniel Chase. Daniel is an aspiring artist who has had is dreams stymied by his father as well as an ex, who is just a bastard. Daniel has just inherited his grandfather’s house and is a little uneasy living so far away from city life, but some stipulations set in his grandfather’s will need to be followed. Being on his own now, secluded in the mountains, Daniel finds that he’s getting strange feelings, premonitions, whenever things are about to go wrong.
Daniel meets attractive mountain man Griffin Pryce. Griffin is a bow and arrow hunter and knows how to live off the land—what he hunts is always used for food, and he’s concerned about and respects the environment. Daniel finds Griffin appealing and wants to use him as a model.
Ray, Daniel’s above-mention bastard ex, is creepy, manipulative, greedy and has taken his threats too far. Griffin can’t in good conscience leave Daniel in a dangerous situation, so he takes Daniel to his cabin, where they find themselves getting closer, and, as the danger escalates, they come up with a plan to try and stop Ray.
I’m not sure what it is, but I always find myself looking for the next Edward Kendrick story. Maybe it’s that his books are always easy reads, very entertaining, no matter what the subject, and the characters always get their HEA. There’s a lesson to be learned in this storyline too: if you make a will and then something happens with the status of your relationship, make sure the will gets updated.
