Third Time’s A Charm

By Michelle M. Pillow

Order of Magic Series Book #2

Paranormal Women’s Fiction & Romance

Friends don’t let friends séance drunk.

Vivien Stone lost the love of her life over twenty years ago. Now that she’s in her forties with a string of meaningless relationships under her belt, she can’t help but pine for what might have been. It doesn’t help that she’s somewhat psychic and can pretty much predict where a relationship is heading before it even starts.

When she and her best friends find a hidden book of séances, Vivien believes it’s the perfect opportunity to talk to her lost love. But things don’t go as planned and what was meant to be a romantic reunion takes a turn for the bizarre.

Maybe some things (and people) are better left buried in the past, and what she really needs has been standing in front of her all along.

“Lorna has been kicked in the lady balls by life. While she’s at her husband’s funeral, she gets a rather eye-opening truth bomb dropped on her. She’s left high-tailing it out of town to put roots down anywhere but a spot that knows her previous among the living no-good-son-of-a…. what? I can judge the man if I want.

Back to Lorna. Wanting some closure, she and her new group of friends séance him back. They get a little more than they bargained for. Oh… I almost forgot about William. He’s the love interest and a thousand times better than that no-good-son-of-a…

I absolutely love the Order of Magic series and really hope you binge-read them all! I’m also hoping Michelle does a spin-off of the series.” – Mandy M. Roth, NY Times & USA TODAY Bestselling Author (2023)
