Summary

I am officially a divorcee who is muddling through a midlife crisis. As if being single in my 40s isn't traumatizing enough, my ex tried to kill me, my best friend thinks orcs are coming after us, the town is convinced I'm a witch, and my daughter moved back in with me. 

These last few months have been a hectic ride, and the fun isn't over yet. I'm in dire need of a job, so the smart thing would be to apply for some mind-numbing work. Something easy where all you have to do is show up. The bills must be paid. Instead, I've decided to go out on a scary limb and open my own shop. 

What was I thinking? 

As if I am not stressing enough, I am having a string of horrid luck. Attempted murder. Assault. Vandalism. Someone is trying to mess up my life. And I'm so done with it. 

I've been given a second chance. I am on my way to becoming a happier, healthier me, and I am not letting anyone screw that up. 

But what am I supposed to do when the line between reality and the impossible starts to blur? Do I see a doctor for medication or begin to accept that, just maybe, magic does exist? And would somebody please find my ex-husband? He's escaped jail and is apparently threatening to kill me again. 

Contains mature themes.

A Thrilling Mystery With A Dash Of The Unexplained

I've really enjoyed the Midlife Mulligan books so far. I found them both very easy to read and like the premise. The plot in both books have had enough mystery to keep my Miss Marple tendencies happy. Not everything mysterious is supernatural.

Nicole Poole is a fabulous narrator. I love the pace she reads the book and her skill at drawing out the appropriate emotions for each scene. Nicole has a good variety of voices and accents that she can apply for the different characters. I was never confused who was speaking during scenes with conversations between any number of characters.

I love the concept of the Paranormal Women's Fiction genre. All the female protagonists are over 40yrs old. Woohoo! At last. That's not to say younger women won't enjoy it or connect to her. After all, being single again after a long term relationship ends is tricky for all of us. As is recovering from a toxic relationship and finding yourself again. However, as a menopausal woman within spitting distance of the big 5-0, I loved how true-to-life Naomi's issues were.

I could connect with our protagonist, Naomi, and felt her situation to my core. Although she didn't start off as a traditional badass heroine, On My Way has seen her grow in confidence. I have a feeling that she'll end up being a great badass by the end and exhibit all the traits I love. At times, Naomi's thoughts, stubbornness and actions frustrate me. However, have learned that these traits are very common in women who've been in long term situations like Naomi's.

On My Way is a well balanced story. There's some dry humour, lots of mysteries, a thriller feel as well as relationship threads woven throughout. The story is primarily a second-chance women's fiction with the hint of the supernatural.

On My Way doesn't end on a perilous life-or-death cliffhanger (woo!hoo!). However, there is a teasing interlude and epilogue that dangle a tantalising hook to keep you reading the series. I can't wait to listen to the next one.

Fun and feisty book 2

Thoroughly enjoyed this, a great follow on from Half Way There. Eve writes women of a certain age quite realistically, though there are some bits I'd rather not be reminded of :)

Such a stupid stupid woman

I seriously want to shake the MC. How can anybody be that ignorant of danger. I dislike authors treating us readers like we are thick - anybody who is told ‘get in the circle’ would at least get in the circle for a few minutes just in case - not go waltzing through it and out the other side. I almost wish she would get hurt

Man, I tried

After the first book of the series was almost nonstop pity party By the main character, I thought it’d be out of the way for the second. I did like all the supporting characters in the book just not the main one. Unfortunately I was wrong, this book also was nonstop pity party. I’m done with this series. The occasionally funny parts, interesting side characters and excellent narration could not redeem the constant droning of the main character, over and over again. It was sadly more frustrating to listen to then entertaining.

What is this

I'm so disappointed in this book. Couldn't finish it. I liked the first one well enough. This book was whiney, and the main character so stupid. It's supposed to be about a woman coming into her magic, she is so lame and so in denial that she doesn't realize a new garage showed up with a car in it over night... seriously? The final straw for me was the CONSTANT talk of the MC peeing herself, ad nauseum. Why?? I want me credit back. The only upside was the narrator. Don't waste your credit.

Annoying

The main character is overwhelmingly annoying. Her stubbornness and brushing off of situations like they didn't happen is enough to make my eyes roll way too many times. Her not telling people things that are happening is just infuriating. This second book is worse than the first in those aspects. It had so much potential. This is my favorite genre but I was very disappointed.

Love this series

I have really enjoyed this series. The heroine is me all over again. So nice to see that others feel about their body the same way I do. Nice to see it in print and she is trying but still struggles.
The whole plot is fun and keeps me interested in what is happening next. Can’t wait for the next one.

fun listen

I've enjoyed this narrator before in other books and generally in this one. I just find it so annoying how the book has sounds spelled out and the narrator has to read them I e. "oof", "crinkle" etc. Just a personal irritation, others may not find it so. I do enjoy the series!

If your over 40 you'll get a good laugh

Enjoyed this series so far. A book that can make me laugh as far as I'm concerned is great. At first I thought the main character was really dumb. Her ability to ignore danger many times had me upset because no one could be that stupid but my life is different. When she finally realizes she's in danger she does come to terms with her abilities. Overall worth the credit. A good laugh.

4 and a half

On My Way is an entertaining and enjoyable book. I like Naomi's character and the plot of the book. The only thing I don't like is that there is a lot unsaid about the paranormal activity surrounding Naomi and some of the dialog with her paramours go on for to long.
