Paranormal Fantasy Review: Semi-Psychic Life by Elizabeth Hunter

Semi-Psychic Life by Elizabeth Hunter (Glimmer Lake #2)


ecopy courtesy of the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
Who says you can’t live the rock and roll life after forty?
You just need a lot more vitamins and a bigger bottle of aspirin.

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.


Semi-Psychic Life is a standalone paranormal women’s fiction novel in the Glimmer Lake series by USA Today bestseller, Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries and the Irin Chronicles.

 First of all, not surprisingly, I loved it.  What's not to love, boys and girls? Paranormal cosy mystery, check. Middle-aged, settled into their own skin and their friendships heroines, check. A sexy sheriff in a small town, rawrrr! Check. A punk, rebellious, interesting heroine with a snarkalicious attitude and a swanky coffee shop, check.


If I failed to convince you yet, this is Elizabeth Hunter, yo! I haven't met a book by her I haven't enjoyed, and as her writing is progressing it's maturing like a really fine wine.

I've already mentioned in Suddenly Psychic, that this reminded me of beloved Three Sisters Island series by Nora Roberts. It had that same feel to it and it's impossibly picturesque too. As the author settles into this new world, so is the reader. Semi-Psychic Life is an even better and more comforting read than Suddenly Psychic.

Val is a prickly hedgehog and she is fierce. I absolutely adored how well Robyn and Monica worked with her on solving her ex-husband disappearance, their easy camaraderie coming from a long-standing friendship. I loved how well her children were described, their interactions. Her coffee shop, the food, the place where they all lived.


Overall, there is a lighthearted feel to this series, and it'll be a perfect read for a short escape from your quarantine reality, peeps. Read it, easily recommended, a comforting story.

Никого, совершенно никого не удивит то, что мне эта книга понравилась, дамы и господа. О каких возражениях может идти речь? Уютный паранормальный детектив? Да. Героини установившиесяличности за  сорок без ангста и с очень крепкой дружбой? Да. Очень симпатичный шериф? Да. Главная героиня - ершистый панк с прикольным кафе? Да.

Если вас не убедил этот список, то мы говорим об Элизабет Хантер. Я еще не встретила ее книгу, которая бы мне не понравилась. Она как очень хорошее вино с каждым годом становится только лучше.


Вторая книга серии еще лучше чем книга первая, так как автор начинает чувствовать себя уютней в этом построении мира, который обрастает персонажами и подробностями. Я уже упоминала, что эта серия напоминает мне любимую серию от Норы Робертс "Остров Трех Сестер". Она такая же красивая и уютная.


Вал замечательно работает в тандеме с Робин и Моникой, что исходит из их долгоиграющей динамичной дружбы, и у нее очень хорошо описаны отношения с детьми.Я бы сказала, что самый формулаичный персонаж в этой книге - это злодей. Но это особенность жанра уютногодетектива, и он предлагает хороший эскапизм от реальности.


Так что, рекомендую, читайте, если вам хочется чего-то легкого, уютного и с юмором.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
