How the Wicked Run, book 3 in the Boston Clairvoyants series, is another thrilling mystery read with amazing characters.
Disclosure: I received this book to review through iRead Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Destined for Love and Danger
Sidrah Keeling, well-intentioned Boston clairvoyant and stalwart protector of her newfound family of psychics, purchases a country respite hours away from her grand Boston home. Lazy Pond Farm, just outside the town of Macoun, Massachusetts is an enormous fixer-upper, but it perfectly serves her agenda of fostering romance and promoting healing. In that order.
But instead, the group encounters trouble. Fate, as usual, has her own plans.
Macoun—named after the apple—is infested with racists led by a man who harbors terrifying secrets.
Will Jenny, Max, Sidrah, Leon, and Bones—the fabulous five—have the power to change Macoun? Will they be able to rescue those who need saving?
And what about love?
As the fates do battle, so will the lives between the wicked and the good. A twisted thread. Who will break? In How the Wicked Run, romance, mystery, and adventure collide once more for this enchanting family of audacious clairvoyants.
I felt the beginning was a little slow, but I am fairly certain that was me and not the author’s writing. I have read two previous books in the series and was trying to rack my brain for what the past two books held. Fortunately, How the Wicked Run didn’t require me to know everything as it did a great job of keeping me in the loop without feeling lost. (And of course, the more I read, the more I remembered from the past.)
I felt the ‘who done it’ aspect that I love figuring out so much was revealed a little earlier than I personally like, but the pure evil darkness left me on the edge of my seat.
The events that occurred had me trying to figure out how this would all end and it ended quite magically – both in how the mystery was solved and in other ways.
If you enjoy the slightly darker mysteries, I definitely recommend How the Wicked Run. I have enjoyed the entire series up to now and really hope the author continues the series. It is a different viewpoint that I thoroughly enjoy and love the ‘family’ of characters that make up the ‘Boston Clairvoyants’.
About the Author
Annabelle Lewis is a pseudonym for the author who lives in Minnesota but was raised in Texas. An important distinction for those who understand both states. When you read her work, this diversity will explain a lot. An avid reader since she got her first bicycle and a library card, she discovered the world, first through books. The mother of two children and several furry ones, she stayed home to raise her family, then stopped to take a breath and searched for new worlds to conquer. She found it with writing.
The Boston Clairvoyants novels as well as the Carrows Family Chronicles all take on the battle between good and evil. Vividly portrayed and humorously written, the reader will root for the bad guys to be taken down by the ensemble and recurring cast of characters in each series.
Annabelle considers herself a champion of the screwed over. And a dog lover. And an incredible mom. Oddly, she’s not a good dancer.
