Midlife in Glimmerspell: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel (Hot Flash Homicides Book 1) by [Addison Moore]

An impending divorce. A hot homicide detective. And spontaneous time travel.
Midlife in Glimmerspell is proving to be magical.

If I thought the first half of my life was a bumpy ride, I’d better buckle up because I’m about to go over the hill and off the rails.

*A laugh out loud Paranormal Women’s Fiction Novel by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore*

After catching my husband in bed with another woman, I gave him the heave-ho, put our house on the market, and moved away to an enchanting little town for a brand new start. What I didn’t count on was the fact that enchanting little town might just be—enchanted.

Glimmerspell is rumored to be home to vampires, werewolves, and fae, but those are just simply gimmicks to lure tourists to their snowy little town—aren’t they?

Nevertheless, I’ve got a job at the Haunted Book Barn where my niece films her infamous video blog—Murder, Mayhem, and Baking. She’s somehow wrangled me into helping out with whipping up the sweet treats, and in the middle of filming an episode a hot flash strikes and I’m transported to another time, place, and another day entirely.

If I thought the first half of my life was a bumpy ride, I’d better buckle up because I’m about to go over the hill and off the rails.

Midlife in Glimmerspell can be a real killer.

From the NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling author, Addison Moore— Cosmopolitan Magazine calls Addison’s books, “…easy, frothy fun!” (Amazon)

Surgery and Spells: A Witch Cozy Mystery (Midlife Medicine Book 2) by [Amorette Anderson]

Nurse Grace Littleton is ready for a new way of life…

a way that’s a bit more magical.

After a midlife crisis that involved a bad break-up

and a void within that just didn’t seem possible to fill,

Nurse Grace Littleton finds herself

living a charmed and enchanted new life.

Her job as an RN in the rural village of Covenstead, Vermont,

is fairly easy — until it’s not.

In addition to tending to the town’s ill and injured,

she’s also responsible for investigating death.

So, when a body turns up in the local cemetery,

Grace’s job suddenly becomes much more challenging.

She feels out of her element —

she’s a nurse, not a trained homicide detective for goodness sake!

But the townsfolk are looking to her for answers…

A local teen’s surgery seems to be involved,

covens aren’t getting along,

and a graveside spell may have gone wrong.

Can Grace and her pit bull Lucky dig up the truth?

For fans of paranormal women’s fiction and witch cozy mysteries — a combination of midlife self discovery, magic, and murder.

This is book two in the Midlife Medicine series. Can be read as a standalone or as a follow-up to book one, Post-op and Potions. (Amazon)

Moonshine, magic, and murder. I’m definitely having a midlife crisis…

I didn’t expect to be single at forty-five, but I’ve always prided myself on facing up to a challenge. A new town, a better job, and a cozy cottage of my own are all at the top of my To Do list. A new man? Right at the bottom. I’m far too busy for love.

Returning to the Devon village of Crows Tor on Dartmoor brings a new lease of life for me – in more ways than one. It turns out my old school friend, Fiona, makes a secret moonshine at her whisky distillery using spring water collected under the full moon. Apparently it enhances your psychic powers, and she tempts me to have a shot… or three.

I’m thrilled at the prospect of developing my psychic abilities. And then I look into a crystal ball at the May Day fair and have a vision of a murder. Suddenly it’s not such a fun idea after all, especially when my prediction comes true. Consumed by guilt because I didn’t warn the victim, I’m determined to find the killer, even if it puts me in the very path of danger…
