She’s feeling the heat. Or it might be a hot flash. Sometimes it’s really hard to tell.
It’s been four years since Monica lost the love of her life to a sudden and devastating heart attack. She’s held her family together and picked herself up with the love and help of her two best friends. Now Monica has a new business, a new wardrobe, and a new vision for the future.
As in actual psychic visions. Dreams that manifest in reality? Monica’s still not sure why or how it happened, but she’s been seeing everything from unexpected visitors to visions of fire and destruction.
Separating premonitions from morbid imagination is proving harder than Monica expected, and no one can tell her if these new, violent visions will become a reality.
Added to that, there’s a new fire investigator in town, and he’s more than a little suspicious about the anonymous and frighteningly accurate tips someone is calling in. Monica is feeling the heat… or is that a hot flash?
Is their town about to feel the burn of a serial arsonist, or can Monica, Robin, and Val figure out the dangerous secret smoldering at the heart of Glimmer Lake?

Psychic Dreams is another book in the new reading genre that I wrote about back in April 2020 – Paranormal Women’s Fiction or PWF for short.
13 paranormal romance, urban fantasy and paranormal cozy mystery authors have teamed up to write books where the female protagonists are +40s. As a menopausal woman within spitting distance of the big 5-0, I’m overjoyed at this new genre. I can’t wait to buy them all!
What did I think about it?
I’m already a fan of Elizabeth Hunter’s books and love her writing style. Her stories tick all of my boxes. An intelligent writing style that’s easy to read. Main characters with personality traits that don’t frustrate me. Variety and depth of character in the supporting cast. Credible background stories and settings – even when based in the paranormal. Plus, a balanced plot that’s a mix of action, mystery, tension, and humour with elements dealing with romance and relationships.
As a menopausal woman myself, I love that this series has older protagonists and supporting characters. About bloody time! Woohoo!
This is only the second audiobook I’ve heard narrated by Ava Lucas. I thought her performance was really good. She conveyed the appropriate emotions when reading the different scenes and I liked the pace that she read at too. Ava has a number of convincing accents and voices in her repertoire – both male and female. It was clear during the many conversations who was saying what.
Psychic Dreams is the third book in the Glimmer Lake trilogy.
However, I think it can work as a standalone title too. I must admit that certain scenes in this one chilled me to the bone. Forest fires are terrifying however add vengeful ghosts into the mix and my adrenaline was pumping.
Psychic Dreams could be view as a coming-of-age story for older, independent, capable women. There’s a generous helping of banter, humour and realistic issues for the over 40s within a rather spooky paranormal mystery.
I’d recommend Psychic Dreams to readers who enjoy stories about finding our path and place in life. The value of strong, healthy friendships and stories that champion not being afraid of change and moving on.
There’s an excerpt from Runaway Fate, the first book in her new series – Moonstone Cove – in the same paranormal women’s fiction genre. I can’t wait to read/listen to it.
