Book Review: Suddenly Psychic by Elizabeth Hunter

Series: (Glimmer Lake Series #1)
Rating: Five out of five stars
Published: 02/16/2020
Publisher: Recurve Press, LLC
Genre(s): Paranormal Romantic Suspense


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!

Every woman goes through changes in their forties. Just not… these changes.

Robin Brannon was a normal wife, mom, and antique-shop owner until a brush with death turned her day-to-day life upside down. Now she and her two best friends are seeing things that belong in a fantasy novel. Ghosts. Visions. Omens of doom. Nothing that belongs in the peaceful mountain town they call home.

Added to that, Robin’s marriage is on the rocks, her grandmother’s health is failing, her mother is driving away the customers at her shop, her teenage daughter refuses to get her driver’s license, and her left knee aches every darn morning.

Robin doesn’t have the time, energy, or knees to unearth the secrets buried at the bottom of Glimmer Lake, but fate doesn’t seem to care. Some secrets are just dying to be exposed.

Suddenly Psychic is stand-alone paranormal women’s fiction and the first book in the Glimmer Lake series by USA Today best seller, Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries.


The term “go-to” is one that readers rely on to describe an author whose work they can always count on to entertain them. Elizabeth Hunter is that for me. In fact, she is my only paranormal go-to author.

Suddenly Psychic is the first in her new Glimmer Lake Series and her first with the Paranormal Women’s Fiction group. The heroine of this installment is a forty-five-year-old woman, wife, mother, artist, and antique store owner, Robin Brannon. She’s feeling achy, ignored by her husband, and wondering if she is a bad mother. She’s BORED and asking herself things like, “Is this my life?” “Am I a ghost in my own house?” (If only she was psychic, eh?!)

Robin and her two besties, Monica and Val, literally end up underwater and near death. From then on life is like a fantasy novel. Are they experiencing PTSD or do they have...psychic powers?! 😱

I loved how each used their new “talents” to help solve a fascinating family/town mystery and how Robin changed her family dynamic. So much so that “Is this my life?” takes on a whole new meaning—EXTRAORDINARY!


Robin had nearly drowned and was now seeing ghosts. Apparently. Who could possibly have trouble sleeping after that?


She felt a wave of gratitude for her husband. He might not be perfect, but neither was she. When anyone needed help, Mark was always the first to volunteer. How many people could you say that about? He didn’t always say the right things, but he did the right things. Most of the time.
