Annabelle Cousins loves her job as a wedding photographer. She loves her entire life, actually, her brand new condo, her handsome, successful fiancé Drew. But around the time of her own engagement, she starts to see things when she looks through the lens. She sees the future of the couples she’s photographing, and sometimes that future does not include the big happily-ever-after.
With the help of her Tarot card reading physician mother Roberta and her wedding planner best friend Khalie, Annabelle seeks out the truth behind what she sees, starting with the handsome couple Robert and Nadine. What is in the cards but what she doesn’t want to acknowledge is the bad future she sees for Robert and Nadine involves herself.
Taking in the fantastical world of weddings, The Only Thing I See looks at the laws of attraction and desire, showing how what we think we want isn’t always the thing we have.

"I really had fun with this tale by Jessica Barksdale Inclan, devouring it in short order. The characters of Annabelle, her best friend (Khalie), and her mother (Ramona) are all well-developed and quite engaging. Easy to read and utterly charming, it's effortless to become absorbed in this tale of emotional growth overlaid in romantic tones. Although the ending is predictable, it's still satisfying as you wait for Annabelle to finally realize what you've known the whole time. It's a feel-good tale that will leave you with a happy sigh, content that things are right with the world."
