Suddenly Psychic by Elizabeth Hunter (Glimmer Lake #1)

Publication Info: Published February 18, 2020 by Recurve Press LLC. I read the Kindle edition through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. Kindle and paperback editions are available.

Summary: Three forty-something women, Robin, Val and Monica, are headed up a winding, dark road on their way to a restaurant to celebrate Monica’s birthday. Suddenly, a white deer appears in the roadway, which Robin swerves to avoid. Her car plunges off the hillside into the lake below. The women aren’t seriously injured, but they are trapped and sinking deeper and deeper into the chilly water. As they frantically search the car for something to break a window open, a mysterious man appears and smashes a window open with a rock.

The event is life changing in more ways than one. In addition to surviving a harrowing accident, the three women discover they have gained some unusual psychic talents. Because of their new skills, they find themselves in a position to solve a decades-old murder, as well as ridding a house of a very nasty ghost.

Comments: I love discovering a fun read by sheer serendipity. I found myself between required book reviews and nothing on my book shelf at home was calling to me. Frankly, during this COVID-19 pandemic, I am increasingly drawn toward escapist reading. Finding Suddenly Psychic on Kindle Unlimited was like having a wish granted!

The story revolves around 3 older women, something I can relate to. The women have psychic talents but still deal with normal life problems. The book is well written and the characters were people I would like to have as friends. There is real emotion, including a scene that even brought tears to my eyes.

The second in the series, Semi-Psychic Life, is also on Kindle Unlimited and I’ve already downloaded it. The third, Psychic Dreams, is due out in August. Yay!

My Rating: 4.5 STARS
