Ever the Same (Soul Mate Chronicles, #1)

Fifteen years ago thirty men, women, and children, were found in a small California field. Twenty-three of them were dead of an unknown cause, seven survived. Now the seven survivors are dying one by one.

Rachel Alton returned to Whitten’s Grove for one reason and that was to prevent a massacre. Her attendance at the local wedding of two of her best friends was just for fun. She never expected her reaction to seeing Ben Mitchell again. Without warning, he awakens her dormant heart, giving her hope for the future and she struggles to turn away. The clock is ticking as Rachel alone fights against the inevitable, but when forces from beyond throw Ben into the middle of the fight, will she walk away, or sacrifice herself to prevent a tragedy from happening twice?
I wish I could have rated this higher. The book blurb made it sound so intriguing. I could not wait to read it. However, I have to be honest and say the blurb was more exciting than the actual book. You are not given a lot of back story and most of your questions are never explained. The book starts off with action but quickly turns to page after page of what all the characters are doing during a weekend wedding. I wish less time was spent going to the mall and hiking and more time spent on what Rachel's powers actually were and her past and how it all tied in with Ben and his outburst at work. I did not care for Rachel and found myself wondering why Ben was so crazy about her. I found her to be way too hot and cold.

There were a lot of characters to keep track of and at times I found myself confused as to who was speaking, since very rarely was identity assigned to the conversations. I think the author has a very creative idea but too much time was spent focusing on the wedding weekend rather than the heart of the story.
