Book Review | D. Pichardo-Johansson – Beyond PhysicalBeyond Physical by D. Pichardo-Johansson
Series: Beyond Romance #1
Published by D. Pichardo-Johansson on January 15, 2018
Genres: Mystery Romance

Someone is murdering politicians all over the country, and everything points to supernatural forces at work. But FBI agent Richard Fields has always relied on his strong sense of logic and is determined to expose the truth.

The lazy beach-town of Fort Sunshine, Florida seems to be the epicenter of a secret New Age society implicated in the murders. Richard's way of finding the killers may end up being Dr. Joy Clayton, a woman who intrigues him. She magnetizes Richard, but he knows better than to trust someone who looks too good to be true. In order to solve the mystery, he'll have to infiltrate himself in her life and uncover her secrets. He will also need to immerse himself in the teachings of an uncommon Spiritual Master who will shake his skeptical world.

Solving the case not only holds the future to Richard's career, it's also a matter of National Security. The clock is ticking before the assassins strike again. But as Richard is forced to go beyond his logic and physical senses, he may find himself fighting an enemy larger than he expected––his own demons.

Even after reading a blurb, I never know what to expect when I start a book from a new-to-me author. Especially when the summary of the book talks about murder, politicians, and supernatural forces. While I love a good mystery, and paranormals are on my “Genres I Love” list, politics isn’t something I latch onto so I was a bit hesitant at the start. But I was very pleasantly surprised at just how much I enjoyed this book. BEYOND PHYSICAL is a fast paced story full of an intriguing mystery, a budding romance between adults past their twenties, a new way of looking at things, and action right to the end—the watch out for that assassin kind of action, not the romance kind. If you’re looking for a fairly clean, quick read that will keep your attention until the end and make you think, definitely pick up BEYOND PHYSICAL. I can’t wait to read the next in the series!
