How did an accomplished Southern businesswoman, wife, and mother end up living on California’s Central Coast, working for a stubborn wine-maker, newly divorced, and wrestling with sudden psychic powers?
Megan Carpenter asks herself that same question nearly every day.
She’s working her way back to the business world and starting her own event planning business, but fate keeps throwing her curveballs. Her ex has an unexpected new girlfriend, her telekinetic powers keep short-circuiting, and her self-control—at least when it comes to her boss, Nico Dusi—is slipping.
Thank goodness she has the two best friends in the world. With Katherine and Toni at her side, Megan is determined to keep her plans on track, even when at unexpected theft at the winery threatens the new business she’s building.
When Nico asks Megan, Toni, and Katherine for help finding the thief, life in Moonstone Cove gets even more mind-bending. Experimental grape clones, industrial espionage, and bizarre blood stains. Even for three psychic friends, this mystery may be more than they can handle on their own.
Fate Interrupted is the final book in the Moonstone Cove trilogy, set in the same world as her first trilogy, Glimmer Lake. These two trilogies are Paranormal Women’s Fiction with older, more realistic heroines with paranormal elements. I’m really enjoying them.
I enjoyed reading so much and I think it is the combination of the mystery and the big support circle of friends and family. Or it might be the snarky humor which seemed particularly excellent.
Megan is definitely a beloved character who handles so much well. She’s got her three children, her scumbag ex, the rebuilding of her career and her special friends. Katherine and Toni are great and we do get more of their stories. I love that they have each other. Everyone needs friends like this.
Nico Dusi is also divorced and has kids. He is technically Megan’s boss until she goes independent. I didn’t get too excited about the romance here. I’m happy with it, just not too emotionally connected. Their kids are friends and I find that story more interesting.
The mystery had my attention and it seemed to have no clues at first. Our trio of investigators, with an assist from Val & Scully, visiting, moved them in the right direction. These mysteries feel more like cozies but people do get hurt and some die. Even with some hints, I wasn’t sure who had stolen the vines. What a great conclusion to this trilogy!
