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

Series Info/Source: This is the first book in the Glimmer Lake trilogy. I borrowed this as an ebook for my Kindle through Kindle Unlimited.

Story (4/5): I loved a lot about this story. The basic premise is that three 40 something women get into a bad car accident where their car sinks into the lake. They make it out with minimal injuries but find out they’ve developed psychic powers. Robin is the focus of this book and is being haunted by a ghost that ends up helping her unravel a lot of her family’s dark past. There’s some fun magical powers, a good ghost story, some truly creepy bits, and a well done mystery and I enjoyed it.

Characters (4/5): I really enjoyed the characters here and found them easy to relate to. Robin is in her early forties, has a bum knee (like me), and a programmer husband (like I do). She’s struggling with her kids getting older and leaving the house (not quite there yet) and looking back at her life and wondering if she’s really accomplished anything. Her and her husband love each other but are super busy and have grown apart some.

Robin also has two longtime girlfriends who are hilarious and struggling through issues of their own (one recently lost her husband to a heart attack and the other went through a bad divorce). I love that these are realistic characters with loving families and friendships that start going through some weird stuff. It was fun to read about an older protagonist that is married with a family and going through some strange supernatural stuff that she ends up bringing her family along with.

Setting (4/5): I loved the town of Glimmer Lake. It had an interesting history and atmosphere to it. Very well described and enjoyable.

Writing Style (4/5): The story was well put together and easy to read. I stayed engaged and enjoyed both the mystery and the characters. This was a very quick read and things felt like they were wrapped up a bit abruptly. Hopefully we will see more of Robin and her husband Mark in future books.

My Summary (4/5): Overall I enjoyed this a lot and plan on continuing with the series. This was just a fun, quick read that left me feeling happy. It provided a good, creepy mystery, some fun magic and a bunch of interesting characters that really cared about and supported each other. I can’t wait to read the rest of the Glimmer Lake series.

Simply... Extraordinary!

I'm already a fan of Elizabeth Hunter's books and love her writing style. Her stories tick all the boxes for me; intelligent writing style that's easy to read, main characters with personality traits that I can connect to and believe in, depth of character in the supporting cast, believable background story and setting - even when based in the paranormal - and a balanced mix of relationship, tension, action, humour and mystery in the plot line. As a menopausal woman, I love that this series will have an older protagonists and supporting characters. About bloody time! Woohoo!

If you enjoy stories about the value of strong, healthy friendships and a sort of second coming-of-age story for older, independent, capable women with a generous helping of banter, humour and realistic issues for the over 40s within a paranormal mystery then this book may be your next favourite read. It's certainly left me wanting to read the next book - Part-time Psychic - and check out the other books available in the Paranormal Women's Fiction (PWF) genre. ( )

An auto accident where three women almost drowned when their car went into the lake each was revived with a different psychic or supernatural power.

Lots of ghosts, the good and the really ugly one; and three women seeking the truth of a murder 70 years in the past lead to things that go bump in the night, romance and humor. A great read. ( )

Suddenly Psychic by Elizabeth Hunter

Paranormal women’s fiction.
Robin, Val and Monica have a car accident and end up at the bottom of Glimmer Lake. They are saved by a ghost breaking the glass in the car window. Now that the women are safe and back to their lives, they seem to have developed psychic abilities. It’s not just a mid life change, they’re all pretty sure.
This is Robin’s story. She can see ghosts.

Instantly engaging and enthralling. The three women must deal with their new abilities and they do it with humor, strength and deep friendships. Robin has felt withdrawn from her husband of twenty some years and as the book goes on, they work through their issues for a stronger relationship. I loved that.
Strong writing style that keeps your attention.
First in the series. I will absolutely pick up the next book. ( )
