Summary

It’s paranormal women’s fiction for lovers of magic, mayhem, and a solid afternoon nap (when they can squeeze one in.)

Katherine wasn’t looking for anything extraordinary in her life. She had a job she loved, a husband she adored, and a home in the beautiful seaside town of Moonstone Cove.

Okay, yes, she worked too much and had fallen out of touch with all her friends, but that happened to everyone, right? And sure, she was feeling a little creaky in the mornings and couldn’t drink coffee after noon, but that was just life in middle age.

Four minutes was all it took for fate to run away with anything that resembled normal.

Now Katherine is trying to place mysterious psychic visions into her previously ordered life. She’s playing referee between a displaced Southern mama and a sarcastic mechanic with a chip on her shoulder. And her quiet life has been upended by a mysterious rash of violent acts by students at her school.

Thankfully, her new friends have powers of their own, and together they just might discover who or what has it in for the quiet citizens of Moonstone Cove.

Runaway Fate is the first book in the hot new paranormal women’s fiction series, Moonstone Cove by USA Today best-selling author, Elizabeth Hunter.

Runaway Fat by Elizabeth Hunter

Runaway Fate by Elizabeth Hunter
Book 1 of the Moonstone Cove series, a spin-off fro the Glimmer Lake series. Paranormal women’s fiction. While the characters from Glimmer Lake make an appearance, those books do not need to be read first unless minor spoilers are an issue.

While Katherine is at her gym working out, she experiences a vision of a student pulling out a gun and shooting people. Suddenly he’s there and reaching into his jacket. Katherine and two other women in the gym prevent the shooting and subdue him. But it’s not over. Katherine and her two new friends investigate another “worst nightmare” situation and find more than one connection and more than one student who doesn’t remember how they things went so wrong.

A strong and smart heroine with a successful career and a supporting spouse. She’s not sure why she’s getting visions suddenly but she doesn’t hesitate to act. I loved the building friendships of the three women after meeting at the gym and each manifesting some psychic ability. Just like in the Glimmer Lake series. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Immediately engaging, quick moving and fascinating.

I alternated between a paperback and audiobook. The narrator did a great job with voice variations and emotions.

Just didn’t do it for me

I absolutely love PWF genre and so I try to read them when I find them. It started out with a bang but just kind of fizzled out for me. The middle was mostly eh and the end was good. It just seemed slow and just didn’t engage me. That being said there are things I liked. I love that she has a sweet loving husband because it seems to be a norm in this genre is that the main character is divorced or widowed. I also like that the circle came together because of the defining moment. While this is paranormal with the power, there aren’t things like vampires and shifters. It’s more of a cozy sisterhood read with out the romance. The narrator does a fine job of the different accents and being very consistent through out the story but over all it just didn’t do it for me.

Suspenseful and Superb

Loved it! This is my favorite Elizabeth Hunter book that I've read so far. A spine-chilling psychological mystery, a brilliant scientist protagonist (my favorite kind of protagonist), plot twists that keep you guessing, awesome female friendships and psychic powers! I cannot wait to dig into the next book in this series.

great Series Starter

Kathrine's life changes at the gym. Kathrine has visions, Toni can move objects and Megan can make people feel what she feels. At first i didn't like Toni but i'm glad she came around and the three women became friends, Kathrine needed some. I like that Glimmer Lake is mentioned in the book. This book is easy to read and fun. I was hooked from the first chapter. I like Elizabeth Hunters writing, well done with this book. I highly recommend this book, probably this whole series.

Tickle Me Pink Moments

The best part of this book are wonderfully quirky and unique characters. While they could be seen as caricatures at first glance you soon realize that they are fully formed well-thought-out people. The tropes the author uses end up feeling realistic and natural in a self-deprecating and smile out of the side of your mouth kind of way.

The story is also interesting and and wonderfully crafted to hold a bit of magic in the real world.

I enjoyed this book and will continue reading the next book in the series.

I really enjoyed this book.

I listened to this book twice, and I really enjoyed this book, and this author, Elizabeth Hunter. This is a spin off to Suddenly Psychic series, another over 40 book. I loved the first series, so was excited to start the next series.

I was not disappointed! I like that this author does not make husbands always the bad guys. I loved Baxter and Katherine together, and separately. Toni and Megan were very likable also.

It was fun to see Robin, Val and Monica make an appearance too. Some similarities, but in general, in many ways very different.

Ava Lucas is an awesome narrator.

Can’t wait for next book.........

Another great new series

This is about three women who meet in an unexpected way and find out that they have psychic abilities. They work together to figure out the mystery and their abilities and what it means. They become friends even though they are all quite different. I liked the previous series by Elizabeth Hunter and I'm looking forward to more in this series. Ava Lucas is a great narrator for this book.
