A Paranormal Women's Fiction with a bit of class and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number!

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 driver’s 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 stand-alone paranormal women’s fiction and the first book in the Glimmer Lake series by USA Today best seller, Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries.


Suddenly Psychic is book one in the Glimmer Lake series by Elizabeth Hunter. We are treated to friendship, danger, family growth, ghostly apparitions and paranormal wackiness.

This is my first taste of Hunter. I’ve had my eye on her books for sometime now and finally picked one up. It’s a descent start to the Glimmer Lake series. 

Robin should be happy, but she’s feeling unfulfilled. Her youngest is a senior in high school, her husband works from home, but life just feels same old same old. She’s not the only one. Her best-friends have issues too. 

While going to celebrate a birthday. An accident changes Robin, Val and Monica’s life. And, now they have found themselves with new abilities. 

Suddenly Psychic focuses on Robin and her seeing spirits. This new ability have caused a shift in her life and soon we are swept up in a murder mystery from the past. I enjoyed the mystery, but I knew by 30% who had killed the man and why his ghost was hanging around. The plot was obvious, but didn’t deter my enjoyment much. 

On another note I loved the friendship between these ladies. It’s so real and heartfelt. I also enjoyed the real life issues that these older heroines are facing. We all get to a point in our life where we start to think. The unique abilities are magical and these three make a great investigative team. 

All and all Suddenly Psychic was a fun and enjoyable read. I’m looking forward to the next installment.

Rated: 3 Stars

  3. This is a favorite author of mine. I think you might enjoy her UF / PNR ones more.

    • I’ve got her UF / PNR on my TBR and just haven’t read them yet, but I applicate the suggestion. I’ll make a point to try out more of her stuff. Thank’s for visiting!

  4. Fun that they’re everyday women and get a little magic in their middle-aged lives. I haven’t tried Elizabeth Hunter’s books yet, but this sounds good.

    • It was an interesting set up with the magic popping up at middle-age. I’ve got plans to try out more of her work and read book two in this series. Thank’s for visiting!
