Midlife Psychic is definitely a “different” storyline than what I am familiar with Carolyn Arnold writing, but it held all the aspects that I have grown to love about her books.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary e-book copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own unless otherwise noted.
Hot flashes in my forties? Expected. Waking up psychic? Not in my wildest dreams.
My name is Erin Stone. I’m forty-three with a daughter away at college and a successful career as a communications officer with the 911 dispatch center for the Toronto Police Service. My life had just returned to new normal after my divorce and everything was going along smoothly. Then BOOM! Turns out the universe had other plans for me.
I dreamed of a plane crash—only it wasn’t just a dream. The crash happened in real life. Eighty-three dead. A vision, plain and simple. Not exactly. My family certainly wouldn’t understand. And me…psychic? I’d dabbled in new-age spirituality in the past but never plunged into the deep end. Now I’m in over my head.
Why was I given this vision, and does it hold clues as to what caused the crash? My best friend Trish is convinced it does, and a handsome stranger with the National Transportation Safety Board is willing to partner with me to solve the mystery. But if I’m going to embrace the vision as telling of newfound psychic abilities, I will need to keep my paranormal gift a secret from my daughter, brother, and aunt. Little good that might do them though.
Someone out there has their own secrets and is willing to go to great lengths to protect them. Now the very gift I was given has put the lives of my loved ones at risk. Will my psychic abilities be strong enough to save them?
This work of paranormal women’s fiction features a strong-willed heroine in her forties with enough baggage to check some, along with a heavy dose of magic and a splash of romance
I am a huge fan of Carolyn Arnold and her writing. She writes amazing mysteries that keep you on the edge of your seat and Midlife Pyschic was no different.
I have read a few different series by Carolyn Arnold. Several are “police procedural” type mysteries and one was an adventure mystery with a treasure hunter. Midlife Psychic is definitely in the realm of “something else” but I loved it!
I am an open minded. I believe in the spiritual world. I have had some… ‘feelings’ in my past. The context of this story was one that I am all for. I loved it and would be considered a believer. The fact that I am a strong advocate for the context, combined with the wonderful writing of Carolyn Arnold and still held the mystery that she writes so well – I couldn’t help but love it!
Midlife Psychic had me on the edge of my seat with mystery, giggling with a hint of romance, and completely invested and engulfed in the storyline.
I certainly hope we see more of Erin Stone and her abilities as I imagine there is plenty of other trouble she can get herself into… or more people’s lives to save.
