About this ebook

Secrets broke her heart... and have now come back from the grave to haunt her.

A new series from NYT & USAT Bestselling Author, Michelle M. Pillow!

So far, Lorna Addams’ forties are not what she expected. After a very public embarrassment, she finds it difficult to trust her judgment when it comes to new friendships and dating. She might be willing to give love a second chance when she meets the attractive William Warrick, if only she could come to terms with what her husband did to her and leave it in the past.

How is a humiliated empty nest widow supposed to move on with her life? It’s not like she can develop a sixth sense, séance her ex back, force him to tell her why and give her closure. Or can she?

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


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 really enjoyed the idea of a second chance in this book. Especially after what Lorna endured. William was perfect. The really cool thing about this book was that the second chance was not just romance but life. Lorna meets two other fabulous ladies and after a magical connection is made, some crazy otherworld stuff happens while trying to get answers for Lorna's big why. I don't want to give anything away, so I recommend you read and enjoy it for yourself. I received a free copy of this book

After reading other books which are fine on their own was nice to go back to the beginning and discover how the three characters came together. Sweet romance for mature women, Ageless Goddess (I read from Christine Northrup's books) is a term I personally prefer for this wonderfully exclusive club! Easy to read, nice characters and lovely menu ingredients with some background story for starters, lots of magic and adventure for mains and little sugary sweet sex for dessert.
