Summary

Friends don’t let friends séance drunk.

A new paranormal women's fiction romance series from NYT and USAT best-selling author, Michelle M. Pillow!

Vivien Stone lost the love of her life over 20 years ago. Now that she’s in her 40s with a string of meaningless relationships under her belt, she can't help but pine for what might have been. It doesn't help that she's somewhat psychic and can pretty much predict where a relationship is heading before it even starts.

When she and her best friends find a hidden book of séances, Vivien believes it's the perfect opportunity to talk to her lost love. But things don't go as planned and what was meant to be a romantic reunion takes a turn for the bizarre.

Maybe some things (and people) are better left buried in the past, and what she really needs has been standing in front of her all along.

Tissues to the Ready

If you liked Second Chance Magic you will love Third Time’s a Charm. This book had me hooked all the way through! Not only did it leave me incredibly hungry with mentions of tacos, burgers and apple pie (to name but a few), it was also so emotional that it had me reaching for the tissues! Thumbs up to Michelle M Pillow and as always, Rebecca Cook’s narration is excellent.

Perfect sequel!

With it's well develop Characters and their story Michelle has yet again brought to her fans another awesome series. I love how the three main characters of this story complete and build off each other yet shine with their own power. Even though the women in this story are a bit older then the usual women in most paranormal romance it goes to that age is just a number and the longer you lived the more you know. Emotions stretch the characters and readers alike. The three women are strong friends and women with loyalty unmatched. She is psychic. She was also widowed in her early 20's and never got over the loss of her true love. Sam Stone was the live of her life. She thought she could never love again. During a seance, they try to call Sam back. He does come back, but he has something to tell Viv. Her new neighbor Troy is flirting with her but she cannot seem to talk right in front of him she is trying to put him in the friend category but that never happens. Right now Lorna is staying at her house since she got out the hospital and Viv is so happy to have her there. The three friends decide to help Viv with a seance' only she didn't bother to tell Lorna and Heather that she wanted Sam her 1st husband back. This story was sweet, a bit funny and a bit emotional. The characters are well developed and very likable.

Nice listen

Nice short story about a woman who was a widow and divorcée. The storyline is interesting and the romance is nice but just seems to move along quite quickly. The characters are likable and believable. The narrator did a great job. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

enjoyable

Really enjoyed this book at times I thought something bad was going to happen . I am happy to say it didn't, infact the story didn't end how I expected. It was a happy ending really nice in these uncertain times.

First love, loss and finding love again

Beautifully written and recorded. Really enjoyed this easy to listen to fresh start. I love the fact the main character is in her 40s. Just shows it’s never too late to find happiness

Intense

This one is just as good as the first one. There has been a lot of development of the characters as their lives change and this has been really enjoyable to listen to. I started this series not knowing if I would enjoy it but as it has progressed I can happily say that it has impressed me so much. The chemistry in this novel is fantastic and I have also loved the addition of magic. I just wish I could give it more stars.

Fun series

I’m liking this series, I wasn’t sure I was liking the first book but kept listening and now I’m listening to the whole series. I like that each book is the view of each main character. It’s a fun easy listen.

Third times a charm is charming.

I loved getting to see Vivian's story! The stuff with Sam was a bit creepy, but I'm glad I pushed through to the end. Her ex makes me want to kick him, lol. He is a piece of work. I'm glad we got to hear more about Vivian's past, her current life and get to meet the one person she can't read! William and Lorna were adorable, I'm so glad we got to see more of them in book 2. Walking through healing Vivian's heart, has me looking forward to Heather's book with excitement and a little trepidation. This story made you feel, think back on your past relationships, celebrate you have grown and changed, and looked into the future with hope. I feel like Heather's story will take us on an even deeper ride. If you are a fan of PWF, like I am! You should grab this book today. I really enjoy Rebecca’s narration of the story and how she helps each of the womens unique character shine through.

emotional and charming

Talk about starting with a bang, I cried in the first chapter, my heart was breaking for Vivien and Sam! I laughed too, I also was in a state of panic and in suspense over the course of the story. Ms. Pillows sure knows how to keep my attention.... as usual. Loved the story and how the author took a very real feel situation and gave it a magical supernatural element. Vivien finds the closure she needs to start living her life and the bond with her friends deepens even further. She finds her HEA with the hunky neighbour, Troy, who at first I was sure was Sam coming back to her. Troy is who she really needs and gets. YAY Listening to Ms. Cook giving the characters lives is always an experience and she is definitely on my 'eargasm' list. Her voices are spot on defining the characters and their temperaments, moods. Her passion for the craft is really heard how she tells the story.

Excellent continuation of the series

I really enjoyed all aspects of this audiobook. I expected the story to follow a similar structure as the first book, but the story line was as unique as the heroine. Overall themes were continued, and the three friends grew in their power and knowledge of their new gifts, but this was a fresh plot. I loved seeing the main characters from a different viewpoint. I think this could be read as a stand-alone book, but there is more depth when taken as part of the ongoing story. I am looking forward to the next book.

I really enjoyed Vivien and Troy's story. I liked that the book focused on Vivien's strengths and the support she gets from her friends. Can't wait to read Heather's story!

So Very Good!!

This book is so good! It is Vivien's story and it was so full of so many different emotions. It had a tragic love story, a charismatic ghost and a new budding romance. I both read and listened to this which made it even better!! This is one you don't want to miss!!

Loved it

Michelle M. Pillow has written a wonderful follow up to the first book in this series. Rebecca Cook didn’t just read it she brought it to life making me feel as if I was there watching everything happening before my eyes. I’m hoping there will be a third installment and soon. I highly recommend this book/audiobook to fans of paranormal women’s fiction.

A beautiful story of love, loss, and friendship. Although I had trouble getting into the groove with this narrator, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to Heather's story!

Keeps Getting Better!!!

Very enjoyable storyline. Do advise to read the first book before this one since characters continue to develop in this storyline. This revolves around a middle age woman getting over her first love, dealing with her second (ex) and finally able to love again this the title of this book. Light reading with suspense,mystery, & romance.Oh, and to also mention with a twist of magic throughout. Good narration! Highly recommend. Can’t wait for book 3.

good read

Not as impactful (imo) as the first book, but enjoyable and entertaining. I really thought Troy was Sam coming back to Viv and was disappointed at that aspect. I loved Viv standing up to her ex and company when they tried to rake advantage of her monetarily. Kudos! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.
