Meeting Destiny by Nancy Straight--A Review

Have you ever had a dream that seemed so real and it was so sensual and you could just beat yourself for having awakened from said dream/sleep?   I can relate to that type of dream sleep, but usually, they never recur...at least for me.


Lauren is visited in her dreams for years by a stranger claiming to be her destiny. Destiny becomes reality when paths cross during a failed robbery attempt. Lauren and the stranger experience chemistry like no other and now her doubt over her long time relationship with her high school sweetheart is not her only secret…someone else knows about her keen intuition and sixth sense.

A mysterious clairvoyant seeks Lauren out and tells her not only of her life now but what the future may hold. Soon Lauren is in the middle of a murder investigation and a questionable friendship with the key suspect. Law enforcement, friends and family are concerned for Lauren but unfortunately they are unaware of the true danger…Sinister forces are at work and will stop at nothing to destroy Lauren’s abilities.

From My Perspective:

Spoiler Alert:  read on at your own risk if you have not read this book.

Meeting Destiny was a paranormal read and very enjoyable.   I really like Nancy Straight's writing style; it flows smoothly.   She is able to create strong and independent main characters.   Lauren has a sixth sense...for danger.   She just needs to learn how to use and assess her sixth sense.

She learned she could communicate with Rewsna telepathically.   I perceived that Rewsna was like an overseer(?).     She clued Lauren in to the fact that her Destiny (Max) needed to be awakened to long forgotten memories and Lauren held the key.   Max would be every woman's fantasy lover.  He came on strong early in the story, but his character seemed to weaken as the story progressed.

There was a lot of incredible action in this story.  First a burglary at the diner she worked in, then a dilemma at the mall where she feared for her friend's life,  helping the guy she had been suspicious of but learned she had sensed danger for him rather than from him and his destiny, and finally her trip into the mountains with Max that ended with Lauren waking two and a half years of being in a coma.

The ending of Book one seemed kind of rushed with so many questions unanswered.   Straight can hold your attention as you long to learn and read the rest of the story.

I rated this a 4 Wink read!
