Dying Thoughts: Third Wish is the third installment of the Dying Thoughts series by Joey Paul. Tara, the psychic daughter of the famous singer, Colin Leverton, wants to spend her six weeks of the summer holiday lounging around and sleeping. However, her father arranges a non-paying summer job at a charity that will occupy all her weekdays. Once she settles down with all her paperwork, there is yet another problem. Whenever she comes across mementos of the deceased clients, they trigger her psychic visions. Watching someone’s dying moments is never fun, but Tara realizes a black-clad figure appears in all the visions to give the clients a killer shot. Who is killing the charity’s clients? Can Tara solve the mystery without endangering herself?

Having read the first book of the series, I could catch up with the storyline quickly. Although Joey Paul has included the necessary background information, I would still suggest readers go for the first two books before picking up Dying Thoughts: Third Wish. Here, Paul adopts a writing style slightly resembling a journal. Tara keeps grumbling and whining about her busy schedule and lack of sleep in a way that only a disgruntled teen can manage. While her sleuth-like instincts zero in on possible foul play astutely, her impulsiveness and trustworthy nature get her into some tight spots. With the help of her best friend, Kaolin, and her boss, Inspector Mike Clifford, she uncovers a deadly secret. As her investigation reveals sinister schemes, readers will wait with bated breath to find out the truth.
