Summary

A Paranormal Women's Fiction with a bit of class, and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number!

Who says you can’t live the rock and roll life after 40?

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 best seller, Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries and the Irin Chronicles.

A Captivating Mystery That Had Me Hooked!

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 don't frustrate me, 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 myself, I love that this series has older protagonists and supporting characters. About bloody time! Woohoo!

This is the first time I've heard a book narrated by Ava Lucas. I thought her performance was really good. She conveyed the appropriate emotions when reading the different scenes and I liked the pace that she read at too. Ava has a number of convincing accents and voices in her repertoire. It was clear during the many conversations who was saying what.

Semi-Psychic Life is the second book in the Glimmer Lake series. However, I think it can work as a standalone title too. I'd recommend Semi-Psychic Life to readers who enjoy stories about the fine line between being self-reliant and asking for help. The value of strong, healthy friendships in our lives and not being afraid of opening your heart.
Semi-Psychic Life is 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.

I can't wait to read the next book - Psychic Dreams.

Love the midlife books

Really appreciate that this series isn’t your typical angry divorcee storyline. I love the variation.

Love Glimmer Lake. Book 2 gets an A+

Love Val and Sully. Val is adjusting well to her powers, Josh is Josh, but looks like he may really be growing up a bit.

Enjoy this series more than any other 40+ books that are coming out quite a bit this year. Lots of magic, friendships, family times, some romance and a mystery to solve.

Ava Lucas does a fine job with her narrations, easy to recognize who’s speaking.

Can’t wait for Monica’s book. Hope that West is in her book.

As good as book one

Good

Story was a little long. I was really happy I heard 3 before 2. Val is a little shallow and long winded but overall the story was different and fun. Love this author. She has an Amazing imagination. Can’t wait to see what else she writes. The scribe is my all time favorite book.

Very enjoyable

I liked all the main characters, they all cared for one another. The main bad guy was definitely some one you enjoyed seeing go down. I also liked Vals romantic interest Scully.

Semi-psychic series bk 2

I’m afraid this book never held me
Disappointing plot, slow and tiresome
Really struggled to continue.
Gave up before the end and only listened past half way because of first book enjoyment
In summary, predicable and slow - sorry

triles and tribulations with a dash of sweetness.

The three best friends use their recently acquired superpowers to fight evil that is trying to destroy their not completely perfect lives, and save the people they love and the some, not so much.
The performer is not the best on Male voices .

Great book, great narration!!

I enjoyed the 1st Glimmer Lake book so much & was afraid this 2nd one would disappoint. Definitely not!! This was just as good with entirely different storyline. Highly recommend! And Ava Lucas' narration rocks! Her intonation, emotions & speech are perfect for audiobooks!

Book was too short.

An interesting story line with couples that sil love each other after years of marriage. Divorced couple trying to figure out co-parenting when one of them is more of a child than the children. An interesting mystery that was fairly predictable but still keeps your interest.

I'm in love

this series so far is amazing. I listen on my way to work and I literally can't wait to get in my car in the morning and after work just to hear what is going too happen next. I don't listen any other time because I don't want to get through it so fast. I hope there are more than three books in this series!!!
