Every woman goes through changes in their forties. Just not… these changes.
Robin Brannon was a normal wife, mom, and antique shop owner until a brush with death turned her day-to-day life upside down. Now she and her two best friends are seeing things that belong in a fantasy novel. Ghosts. Visions. Omens of doom. Nothing that belongs in the peaceful mountain town they call home.
Added to that, Robin’s marriage is on the rocks, her grandmother’s health is failing, her mother is driving away the customers at her shop, her teenage daughter refuses to get her drivers’ license, and her left knee aches every darn morning.
Robin doesn’t have the time, energy, or knees to unearth the secrets buried at the bottom of Glimmer Lake, but fate doesn’t seem to care. Some secrets are just dying to be exposed.
Suddenly Psychic is a stand-alone paranormal women’s fiction, and the first book in the Glimmer Lake series by USA Today Bestseller, Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries.

SUMMARY

🎧︎Suddenly Psychic introduces best friends Robin, Val and Monica. The women are at different stages in their lives. Robin operates an antique shop is married with two children and a husband who works from home. Val is divorced and dealing with a selfish and immature ex-husband, while Monica is  recently widowed. They each have their share of issues and were going through the motions of their normal, mundane and unfulfilled life. One night in bid to cheer up Monica on her birthday, (the first without her husband), and to take a break from their unfulfilled lives, they went out to have some fun, but instead they ended up at the bottom of Glimmer Lake. They came away unscathed, but ended up with newfound abilities that brought unexpected changes to their lives. 

 

This book was so much fun, it pulled me in and kept me engaged to the end. The story delivered a mix of mystery, suspense, paranormal events and personal growth. It was fun getting to know the characters. Robin and her friends were a hoot. I loved the friendship the women shared. Down to earth and authentic. 

The installment focuses on Robin and her ability to see ghosts. It’s this ability that placed she and her friends in the middle of a cold case murder investigation. Although the focus was on Robin  it was the combined abilities of the three women that helped to unearth the truth. The ladies made a great team of investigators. Throughout the course of the investigation, Robin learns interesting and disturbing things about a family member.

I had the mystery all figured out from early in the story. However, despite the predictability of the case I still enjoyed watching it all unfold. The series is off to a great start and I am looking forward to what’s next in store for these ladies.
 
Readers who enjoy urban fantasy, cozy mysteries and women’s fiction will get a kick out of Suddenly Psychic.


Narration

Ava Lucas did a wonderful job with the Narration. She did a great job with all the voices. Her tone for the male and female voices were on point.  Her voices for each of the characters were distinct.
