Item description for Kaleidoscope Eyes (Family Honor Series) by Karen Ball...

All the talent in the world can't keep Annie from falling for a man who's hiding his true identity. Overcoming wilderness and weather is one thing, but betrayal?

Publishers Description
Wilderness and Weather Are Easily Overcome. But Betrayal?
Annie Justice sees things differently. Her unconventional condition, synesthesia, helped make her one of the most sought-after stained-glass artists in the country. And teamed with her German shepherd, she's just as successful in her work with the K-9 Search and Rescue Team, finding people seemingly hidden from others' eyes. But no one knows her expertise for hiding the childhood insecurities that plague her--until Jed Curry comes along. Then the search for a missing child goes awry, and Jed must reveal his true identity. He's prepared for Annie's anger, but not the hurt. And neither of them is prepared for the real trial ahead--something far more sinister and dangerous than their search. Can Jed and Annie overcome their unknown enemy--and the insecurities and secrets keeping them apart--before it's too late?
"Someone wants Annie to fail... "

"either that, or he wants her dead."
Annie Justice has always been different, thanks to a rare condition allowing her to see things others do not. It's a blessing and a curse. The blessing? Annie and her dog, Kodi, have become one of the most effective search-and-rescue teams ever. The curse? It's kept her from the only thing she wants: to fit in. But she doesn't. Not anywhere.
Jed Curry, a producer of hit reality TV shows, ""likes that Annie's different. Different sells. Which is why he wants her on "Everyday Heroes." But Annie has no interest in the show. Or the man.
Then threatening e-mails kick off events that send Annie and Kodi--and the irritating Jed Curry--straight into the path of danger. Joined in a race against time and a cunning adversary, Annie and Jed struggle to work together. Because if they don't, it could cost them--and a lost little girl in the Oregon wilderness--everything.
Story Behind the Book
"After my mother died, I realized that the way I lived my life was essentially her legacy. This book grew from that realization. Annot ("Light"), known as Annie, has always felt like the 'odd man out.' For all her success, Annie still doesn't feel like she really belongs. To give the story realism, I drew on my own experience as a member of the Jackson County Search and Rescue organization; on a friend who has Annie's condition of synesthesia; and on my own struggles to find my place in life and to understand God's calling and purpose for the gifts He's given me."
--Karen Ball

Reviews - What do customers think about Kaleidoscope Eyes (Family Honor Series)?

Better than the first and a definite mystery, romance, and adventure  Apr 9, 2008

This book, Kaleidoscope Eyes, was a really fabulous read! So much better than the first one, the first one was good, but just too much traumatic events for one book or one life for that matter for my taste. Annie, the main character is different, and through her life of loves and challenges a reader is really able to go on a great adventure. This book is about really love that makes you giggle and feel giddy. It is also about the important and serious jobs in the world that make a difference in other peoples lives. On top of that is is about the crazy people out there, who's actions just do not make sense in any mind. This book had me smiling, laughing out loud, and screaming at the characters to do or realize what I wanted them to. Karen Ball did really well with this one, every time I thought it was one way, something else jumped in to show me a different direction. It is quite the mystery that you really do not know until the end. Very glad I read this one.
"People are like stained-glass windows." -- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross  Aug 29, 2007
I don't know why it took me so long to read this book ...

It came highly recommended by the sales lady (& that's why I bought it!), but, I don't know ... The title, the cover, the synopsis, I dunno, something ... Some THING kept me from reading it when I bought it so many months ago. But don't you know that GOD is right on time (just like He always is)? Because I picked it up a couple of days ago just because I needed something to read in the doctor's office &, as it turned out, it became just thing I needed to read at precisely this point in my life -- woo hoo, PTL, thank You Jesus! \o/

Because -- as an artist, a writer, an introvert, an animal lover -- I could really relate to the main character, Annie Justice, & the feelings she had about her life & the way she handled life situations, etc. And I wish I could say I've had as much luck as Annie had turning the liars in my life into lovers -- but I guess that's why these kinds of books are called romances? ;) I also wish I had her "condition" -- being able to see colors in everything! Now isn't that something? I'd never heard of that before. Very interesting.

I thought the book very well-written (although I was skimming it so fast that I really didn't get a chance to fully appreciate it! :P) & the action vs. romance was very well balanced & intriguing (although I was a little disappointed that I was able to figure out what was going to happen just as soon as all the main characters were introduced, darn it) & I'm SO glad that Annie Justice wasn't a writer by profession (although, sad to say, I am getting tired of seeing newsmen/TV producers & the like as love interests -- but that's just my personal pet peeve due to having worked in entertainment for a time).

And the whole reason I'm even on the this site website right now, is because -- this being my first Karen Ball novel -- I decided that I needed to buy a few more ... And that's a good thing :)

Well, written and excellant story of an unusal woman who loves the Lord
and people to help with search and rescue dogs.
I'd read Ball's grocery list, even!!  Jul 28, 2006
Annie Justice, artist and SAR participant with her canine partner, Kodi, has a colorful view on life. Literally. Yet Annie's synesthesia doesn't overshadow the story, merely colors it, if you'll excuse the pun.

The hero, Jed Curry, struggles with his own demons. Complicating matters is his reality series, Everyday Heroes. He wants to feature Annie and Kodi. When she denies his request, he lies his way into her life. Then against his own will, he's drawn to her and must decide which is more important--his career or Annie. Karen Ball's plots are without predictability.

With the expertise of a symphony conductor, Ball orchestrates the tension and suspense in a story. She uses pacing like the conductor uses his baton, creating an arpeggio of action then an adagio of rest for a moment before the next onslaught. As the stakes rose, I found myself flying through the pages to reach the answer. I thought I had Annie's enemy figured out. All clues pointed that direction--then Ball surprised me. And when it was done, I felt completely satisfied.

I've said it before--I'm not a fan of suspense, even romantic suspense. But I'll read anything Karen Ball writes, even if it's a grocery list. I know I'll find humor and insight--even in the vegetable aisle.
A Heart-thumping Fun Read  Jul 22, 2006
Karen cooks on all burners with this one. This story has everything I like--adventure, intrigue, romance, sympathetic but flawed characters with interesting careers, plus a totally loveable little girl and a heroic dog. She mixes the recipe together with loving care, coming up with a read that's sweet but not saccharine and spiced with spiritual depth. Well worth adding to your bookshelf.
