Mind Reader by Kirsty McManus / #Review @McmanusKirsty

Kellan Gallo can predict soulmates. Operating out of the nightclub Heaven Sent, his charming reputation and impressive accuracy rate are legendary.

But when Kellan meets stem cell scientist Beatrix Mackenzie, he wonders if his time might be better spent pursuing a more meaningful profession.

After a lucky interview with an employment agency, Kellan suddenly finds himself working as Beatrix’s intern. But with Beatrix convinced Kellan is a fraud, he wonders whether embarking on a career in science might be incompatible with his future happiness.


Beatrix Mackenzie lives her life by the facts. She loves her job as a scientist because of the clear-cut answers it can provide. So when she meets Kellan, she is reluctant to fall for his act.

However, Kellan quickly proves himself to be an intelligent, and oh-so-attractive adversary, causing Beatrix to question everything she knows.

Can two people with such differing worldviews find common ground?

If they’re soulmates, it might just be possible.


A mind reader… yeah right. That’s what a lot of people would think. They are convinced that person must be a fraud because reading someone’s mind is impossible. You might sometimes guess what they think because of their body language but that’s only that: a (lucky) guess.

But on the other hand a certain amount of people do believe it’s possible and it might be dangerous, because they might start leading their lives in function of those things that were predicted.

In which category do I belong? Well, I am certain that some people do have a gift and can see/feel things others cannot, but I would never have my mind read by someone. I know I would feel influenced by it. I will wait and see what happens or does not happen  🙂

Everybody would like to find their soulmate and have a happy life. But what is a soulmate? Is it someone that loves everything you love too or is it someone who loves you the way you are? I guess that’s something that’s different for each and every person. 

I would say that everybody has to do what they feel is right for them. Consult a mind reader or not? As long as you keep an open mind there is nothing wrong with it.

To answer a question: Can two people who are total opposites be each other’s soulmates? In my opinion: yes, why not!

A lovely story with a bit of suspense in the mix. I really enjoyed it. 5 stars

Thank you, Kirsty McManus
