Spell Hunter by Amy Boyles

Midlife ain’t no joke…

On paper, Georgia Nocturne has everything—a great job and a beautiful family.

But at forty-five, Georgia’s career is going nowhere and her family only pays attention to her when they need to be fed.

Frustrated with her humdrum life and the way her body is rapidly sagging and shifting as if it has a mind of its own, Georgia decides things must change.

That change comes with a blast from her past.

You see, she has a secret—she’s a retired witch and spell hunter.

Georgia decides to restore her powers and take a job hunting for a rare spell. But it turns out that Georgia is not the only hunter in town. A mysterious man also seeks the spell and he’ll stop at nothing to get it.

Can Georgia prove that she still has what it takes to be a spell hunter and gain the respect from her family that she wants? Or will she fail and let the spell fall into the wrong hands?

Petal to the Metal by Annabel Chase

Forty-two-year-old Mia Thorne is not living her best life. After a disastrous career-and-relationship-ending event, she escapes New York City and moves to a sleepy river town in Pennsylvania, courtesy of a dead aunt she never knew. Aunt Hazel was the reclusive family nut, a self-proclaimed psychic. Of course, Mia’s dad always told her that she, too, had the gift, but after his death, her mother made sure to squelch the notion. No square pegs allowed!

Aunt Hazel’s old cottage is only slightly better than the decrepit gardens surrounding it. Mia doesn’t know the first thing about gardening and expects this will be one more failure on her seemingly endless list. Even Aunt Hazel’s ancient cat seems to have pegged her as a loser.

When Mia stumbles over a body in the overgrown garden, the newcomer catches the eye of the police chief and his hotshot detective, Derek Fairfax, and she becomes the number one suspect in the case. Much to her shock and awe, she also catches the eye of Derek’s brother, Dane, a lawyer with a head for what’s legal and a bod for what isn’t—but getting arrested for murder would certainly put a damper on her dating life.

Will Mia tap into her long-buried psychic skills in order to save herself or will she end up digging her own grave?

The Ghost Hunter Next Door by Danielle Garrett

The first rule of being a ghost whisperer: Don’t tell anyone.

Seriously. Don’t.

Sure, it might sound harmless. A fun party trick, even. I assure you, it’s not.

How do I know? Well, let’s just say that I’ve had a lot of experience with this sort of thing, and nine times out of ten, it turns into an all-consuming disaster.

Being plagued by needy ghosts twenty-four/seven is one thing; being harassed by a horde of curious — or worse, grieving — flesh-and-blood people is an entirely different circus. I mean really, who wants to hold an impromptu séance in the middle of the cereal aisle? Not me, and the manager of the grocery store probably isn’t too crazy about the idea, either.

So, that’s it. If you’re a ghost whisperer, just keep your mouth shut and act normal. Ghosts? What ghosts?

Now, if only I would start listening to my own advice …

Midlife Magic by Victoria Danann

FOR ALL THE EVERYDAY HEROINES OVER FORTY WHO KNOW IT’S NOT TOO LATE FOR MAGIC!

If you can imagine yourself as a romantic and adventurous woman in midlife, who’s come into her power and ready to claim a slice for herself, this Paranormal Women’s Fiction book is for you.

The day after my forty-third birthday, my husband announced he was trading me in. His words, not mine. The news was unwelcome at the time, but honestly? I needed a good goosing to get up and find my way to the door.

So. I was freed from the manual of expectations authored by my ex that had, over the years, grown into an encyclopedia of what a wife “should” be and do. The freedom was good news. The flip side was less happy. Due to living in a state not friendly to discarded wives, I was also relieved of the financial ‘security’ I’d spent a lifetime accruing.

Starting over? I didn’t plan on it. Didn’t see it coming. But pulling a sheet over my head and waiting for the end didn’t seem like my style. Granted. I wasn’t sure what my style was because I hadn’t thought about freedom of expression since I was twenty.

I’d never been a fan of optimistic adages like ‘it’s not too late’, but that was before my life was divided into two parts; everything that came before the mysterious package and everything after. Fate shot me with a lightning bolt of an attitude adjustment and thrust me headfirst into an adventure that was unforeseeable, to say the least. If you’d told me what my life was going to be like, I would have used every synonym for crazy you’ve ever heard.

I ‘inherited’ a curious antique store in a tiny, picturesque English village where the world of fae magic lives side by side with the mundane. But that’s far from all. Eight times a year, I receive magical dignitaries and magical lowborn alike and mediate their disputes; some comical, some deadly serious.

It may be too late for super shiny hair, going without a bra, or sleeping eight hours without a potty break. But it seems that it’s not too late for navigating magical politics, expatriating, romance, and saving the world.
