Semi-Psychic Life by Elizabeth Hunter
Series: Glimmer Lake #2
Published by Self-Published on April 21, 2020
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Valerie Costa was pretty sure she was rocking her forties. She had an amazing coffee shop, two cool teenagers, and a new superpower that gave her insight into any random object she touched.
Okay, she wasn’t thrilled about that last one.
Ever since Val and her two best friends had driven their car off the edge and into Glimmer Lake the year before, Val has struggled with her new abilities. She’s not exactly sure she wants to be psychic, she could live without her newfound glove addiction, and honestly no one wants to know that much about their teenage sons.
But when Val’s ex-husband goes missing, and police show up at her door with questions she can’t answer, Val, Robin, and Monica are going to have to use their sudden psychic abilities to solve a mystery none of them saw coming.
I really enjoyed the start of a new series, Glimmer Lake. I loved this even more than the first one, Suddenly Psychic which introduces our three best friends in a smallish town in California. One is married; one is divorced; and one is a widow. They all have children growing up, mostly teens or young adults. They have realistic issues with their children, parents, partners, and careers.
Val feels like her ability is the most like a curse since it really intrudes on her daily life. She can sense things, even get conversations through touching an object. She always has trouble with her ex-husband. He’s not really reliable. But when he goes missing, she works to figure out where he is for the sake of their boys.
This puts her in touch more consistently with Sully, the sheriff. They’re attracted to each other, but Val thinks she has enough in her life and can’t handle one more thing. But she has a chance to see Sully would not be the same kind of partner as her ex.
I found this mystery even more exciting than the previous one. I was just going to read a bit of Semi-Psychic Life before bedtime. It was so good, I just kept reading and then it was 2am and I finished. With the mystery aspect, a bit of humor, the strong relationship and support the three friends share and a romance, there is much to love!
