New Release Book Review: Fate Actually (Moonstone Cove, Book #2) by Elizabeth Hunter @EHunterWrites

Fate Actually, a murder mystery shrouded in the supernatural and the second book in the Moonstone Cove Series and from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Hunter is available now!

About the Book:

Toni Dusi grew up knowing everyone’s business and everyone knowing hers, because in Moonstone Cove, you can’t pass a restaurant, farm, or winery that doesn’t have at least one Dusi involved. Despite that, Toni has managed to carve out a private niche for herself. She has a car shop she loves, a country cottage all to herself, and has carefully avoided any long-term romantic commitments.

Then fate handed Toni a shot of supernatural empathy that threw all that out the window of her prized vintage Ford.

Now she’s feeling the mood swings of everyone from her parts guy to her reluctant crush to her second cousin going through a messy divorce. She’s losing her temper; she’s crying a river; and she’s definitely giving in to temptation.

For a woman who prides herself on always being prepared, Toni has no idea how to handle a supernatural storm of emotion.

Which is not to say empathy doesn’t have its advantages. When the body of a long-time family rival turns up on a back acre of her cousin’s winery, Toni realizes that her inconvenient feelings magic has turned her into one heck of a lie detector. Along with her new friends, Katherine and Megan, she might be the only one who can clear her cousin’s name.

When fate throws a final curveball in Toni’s direction, will she drop everything with disastrous consequences? Or can a forty-one-year-old empath learn enough new tricks to keep the life she’s built without sacrificing her happiness?

My Review: 

Fate Actually is the second book in the new Moonstone Cove series by Elizabeth Hunter. Set in California, Fate Actually follows the life of a trio of friends and their newly minted psychic abilities. Katherine the professor, Toni the mechanic, and Megan the housewife and mother are the stars of this Paranormal Women’s Fiction (PWF) series. These are 40-something women, strong and accomplished, and closer to my age, experience, and lifestyle. Characters I can relate to better than those in their twenties or thirties.

This book focuses more on Toni, although there's no shortage of Katherine and Megan. When the women discover the body of a family rival on the property between Toni's house and her cousin Nico's, The women bring out their psychic abilities to help solve the case. Between the dead man's hatred for Nico, Nico's ex's traitorous actions, and the sheer lack of alibies, plus their personal lives, Toni, Katherine, and Megan have a lot on their plates.

I loved this book. The characters are wonderful, the setting is great, and the mystery kept me on my toes. I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Hunter and devour everything she writes. She has never written anything but the best stories. I’ve been one of her biggest fans since I devoured A Hidden Fire, her first book in the Elemental Mysteries series. All of Elizabeth's novels reach deep within my emotional center and manage to trigger reactionary responses. These types of books are my favorite. The emotions don't have to always include tears; it is just the ability to invoke proper emotional responses to scenarios being played out.

I was provided a copy of this book to read.
