Olive Morgan is not your typical psychologist. She can also access the memories of anyone she comes into contact with. After an explosion in a Sydney shopping mall, Olive is enlisted alongside a team of 'Elite' consultants. She joins Canan Jones who can attune to the emotions of other people, including Olive. Initially, she distrusts the agency, but when another explosion threatens more lives Olive has no choice but to use her skill to prevent another disaster.

Is terrorism really at play or is the agency hiding the real reason behind these attacks?

Olive wants to solve the case, but her personal life is suffering. Despite having a boyfriend, she feels a connection brewing with Canan, who has an uncanny way of making her feel calm when life becomes overwhelming...

Intuition is a tale of supernatural suspense and the first book in the Elite Series.

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review on the Enchanted Book Promotions book tour.

This book tells the story of a group of random Australians brought together to aid in the mission of a TOP SECRET government’s mission to catch a terrorist.

The cover had me thinking this was a bit of a thriller; and I expected a little more action.  But this was a suspense novel through and through. It also had an array of crime and the supernatural.  You never knew the turn the events would take, but it wasn’t really a heart pumping adventure.  Nonetheless, this book had me captivated in hours of reading bliss!  
The characters were very likable and believable.   The villains' "weapons of retaliation" were far more interesting than the heroes', which was kind of unfair.  (Which brings me to my only complaint: This story did not really allow the hero team to really flex their muscles.)  Yet I have a feeling Olive may have the potential to evolve in subsequent novels.  *Fingers crossed* Not everything was as it seemed and the revaluations were plentiful. That was a double plus! The romantic element was cute and not over the top.  The back story of the characters was very eye raising; and I hope this is further explored within The Elite Series. 

Excerpt from Intuition, Book One of the Elite Series
By Jayne Fordham

Olive’s phone rang before she could locate the remote control. The phone number on the screen was blocked; she had no idea who would be calling her.
         "Hello?" Olive asked tentatively.
         "Olive Morgan?" A stern voice asked.
         "Yes, that's me."
         "My name is Regent. I work for a confidential agency with the government.”
         “Um, hi,” she mumbled. She wondered if this was going to be some kind of sales pitch.
         “You better turn on the news. There’s something you need to see,” he said firmly.
         “Huh?” Olive was feeling a bit confused, but the man sounded quite serious, so she did as she was told. The remote had fallen between the cushions on the lounge, so she retrieved it and hit the power button.
         An image of an explosion flooded the screen. Olive stood up straight, her eyes glued to the display.
         “What’s that?” Nat cried, getting up from the table to come closer to the television.
         Olive turned up the volume on the news channel where a young woman was now on the screen with a microphone. There was black smoke behind her and people running all over the place.
         "An explosion in south-west Sydney has caused havoc,” the reporter announced. “It is feared that many are dead and many more injured. The circumstances are considered suspicious at this stage.”
         "Oh my gosh! This is so scary,” Nat gasped.
         Olive was shaking. An explosion so close to home. They thought it was suspicious; she felt her stomach recoil. She placed the phone back to her ear.
         “Who are you?” she asked suspiciously.
