About this ebook

"[T]he cast of women and their bond resonates. This is a delight." Publishers Weekly (2021)

Some secrets refuse to stay buried.

By all rights, Sue Jewel should be dead. In place of celebrating her fortieth birthday, she was wrapped in plastic and stuffed in the trunk of a car. Worst part is the man she promised to spend her life with is the one who tried to kill her. With a little help from Fate, Sue walks away from the ordeal, but her husband doesn’t.

Now with a new lease on life, Sue wants to put as much mileage between her past and her present as she can. It would be a lot easier if something supernatural with dark intent wasn’t along for the ride. Desperate to break free from it all, she finds herself in Freewild Cove, making new friends, catching the eye of the handsome coffee shop owner, and hoping to magically cut her ties to her would-be murderer once and for all.

Lorna, Vivien, and Heather are back. And with the help of Grandma Julia’s ghost, they’re kicking supernatural butt and taking names!

Book Four of the Order of Magic Series: Magical Paranormal Women's Fiction by NY Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Michelle M. Pillow.

"Michelle has done it again! This series just keeps getting better, and Sue's story is just another example of great paranormal women's fiction!" USA Today Bestselling Author, Renee George (2020)


About the Order of Magic Series

Older women kick ass. They know things. They’ve been there. They are worthy of their own literature category. They stopped giving a fuck. They also have their own set of issues that they face–empty nests, widows, divorce, menopause, health, etc–and these issues deserve to be addressed and embraced in literature. Women friendships matter. Women matter. Our thoughts and feelings matter.

Welcome to Paranormal Women's Fiction. Books for women who kick ass.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC edition of this book, and I am giving my honest opinion. This book starts off with a great way to capture your interest, almost like Sleeping With the Enemy with a big dose of magic. And lets face it, 2020 hasn’t been great for anyone, so I say bring on the magic. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a sucker for a good magical romance story or just about anything written by Michelle M. Pillow. This book feels like a grown-up fairy tale with some humor thrown in. Sue is given an incredible chance to start a new and better life, though it does have some challenges. Sue—with the support of her new group of loyal, loving and funny friends and an amazingly, wonderful, caring man—overcome her past once and for all and is able to finally live in a happier and better present and future. This book shows that women empowerment is very real, and it doesn’t matter your age or what you’ve been through, you can be powerful. I would recommend this book, and so would Grandma Julia, and you shouldn’t disobey her. Grab your copy of The Fifth Sense now and enjoy a magical story in your life.

The journey Sue goes on is a powerful journey. She wakes up in the hospital after years of abuse, finally free from her abuser, due to luck (or fate). He was going to kill her but instead winds up dead in an accident. However, just as she thinks she's free...she starts to feel cursed and follows the signs to go to Freewild Cove. This story really hits home on how any woman, or man, in an abusive relationship feels. She blames herself and thinks others will blame her for not being "strong" enough to leave. When she's finally free...she doesn't want anyone to know her "shame" so she lies to the police about being in the trunk of her car. When she finds herself with new friends and a new love...she doesn't feel like lying anymore and is protective of those who have been so nice and protective of her. Her strength and ability to still find love made me so happy I had the biggest grin when I was finishing this story. Michelle did an amazing job bringing Sue in to this world and has done a great job of building up this world. I love the strength of these women and how they build each other up, it is truly inspiring and we all need to be like them.

Sue and Jameson (and the girls) She awoke to the beeping of hospital machines and a fierce headache. She ached all over but that wasn't new. She said she didn't remember. The police wanted to help her. Her husband was dead in a car accident. What happened they wanted to know. When she didn't tell her they wanted to know why her blood and hair were in the trunk. Not talking about it. He was dead. Gone. Now what? He may be dead but was he gone? She smelled him near her. She had strange things happening that chased her out of their home. Where should she go? So how does she end up in Freewild Cove? Meeting the friends who will help her figure out what is happening to her isn't going to be easy. She doesn't have friends she can depend on. Why would these women help her so much? In addition to the ghostly shadow following her, they want to help her live a new life. But if her dead husband is still trying to control her it's time to bring in the big guns. The spirit who brought the women together taught them to fight back and sent Sue to them. It's not gonna be easy but if they fight together with their new powers can they defeat the evil spirit? Sue shouldn't be able to think about another man but when Jameson shows her that most men aren't like her former husband will she give him a chance? A wonderful show of friendship and love working together. Loved seeing the group adding a new member and watching her gain strength as a woman.
