Blinded is my first book by Lyz Kelley but won't be my last. Ms. Kelley has delivered a well-written book and populated it with an outstanding assortment of characters. Mara's legs were crushed and she was blinded in the accident that killed her parents and sister. She recovered the use of her legs, but not her eyesight. Her long-ago crush, Joey, returns to town after his brother is murdered. Their story is loaded with action, suspense, humor, drama and sizzle. I enjoyed reading Blinded and look forward to reading more from Lyz Kelley in the near future. Blinded is book 1 of the Elkridge Series but can be read as a standalone. Although there were questions remaining at the end of this book, that I'm guessing will unfold in later books, this is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
