I think my midlife crisis is trying to kill me.
First my ex-husband, who tried to murder me, escapes prison. Then a tree falls on my car - with me in it! Add in a haunting at my new shop, plus a house that's suddenly infested with monsters, and I am in serious need of intervention - or a few drinks. Maybe then I'll understand how I'm able to do magic and see things no one else can.
But it's not all bad. I'm dating someone for the first time in twenty years and remembering what it's like to feel that anticipation before a kiss.
At the same time, maybe I should hold off as the weirdness in my life takes monstrous shape – literally - and I can't help but realize that magic is real. I truly am a witch and I know something bad is coming. Even scarier? I might be the only one who can stop it.
My poor little town is so screwed.

What is Paranormal Women’s Fiction?
13 amazing paranormal romance, urban fantasy and paranormal cozy mystery authors teamed up in 2020 to write books where the protagonists are women in their 40s or older. Paranormal Women’s Fiction (PWF) was born! Since then more authors are adding their books to the PWF genre. As a menopausal woman within spitting distance of the big 5-0, I’m overjoyed that this new genre is gaining momentum and can’t wait to buy them all!
Now, on to my review…
What did I think?
A Thrilling Mystery With A Dash of The Unexplained
I’ve really enjoyed the Midlife Mulligan books so far. I found them both very easy to read and like the premise. The plot in both books have had enough mystery to keep my Miss Marple tendencies happy. Not everything mysterious is supernatural.
Nicole Poole is a fabulous narrator.
I love the pace she reads the book and her skill at drawing out the appropriate emotions for each scene. Nicole has a good variety of voices and accents that she can apply to the different characters. I was never confused who was speaking during scenes with conversations between any number of characters.
I love the concept of the Paranormal Women’s Fiction genre.
All the female protagonists are over 40yrs old. Woohoo! At last. That’s not to say younger women won’t enjoy it or connect to her. After all, being single again after a long term relationship ends is tricky for all of us. As is recovering from a toxic relationship and finding yourself again. However, as a menopausal woman within spitting distance of the big 5-0, I loved how true-to-life Naomi’s issues were.
I could connect with our protagonist, Naomi, and felt her situation to my core.
Although she didn’t start off as a traditional badass heroine, On My Way has seen her grow in confidence. I have a feeling that she’ll end up being a great badass by the end and exhibit all the traits I love. At times, Naomi’s thoughts, stubbornness and actions frustrate me. However, I’ve learned that these traits are very common in women who’ve been in long term situations like Naomi’s.
On My Way is a well-balanced story.
There’s some dry humour, lots of mysteries, a thriller feel as well as relationship threads woven throughout. The story is primarily a second-chance women’s fiction with the hint of the supernatural. On My Way doesn’t end on a perilous life-or-death cliffhanger (woo!hoo!). However, there is a teasing interlude and epilogue that dangle a tantalising hook to keep you reading the series. I can’t wait to listen to the next one.
Keep reading to find out more about this series and its author.
