This story introduces new paranormal characters to the NFU universe - a fortune teller and a Kachina healer. I thought this story had a lot of promise, and overall I really liked the book. I was completely surprised by the troublemaker in the story, which was great because it was very unpredictable. I would have liked to learn more about the events leading up to Tiya's curse, possibly as a prologue to the story. I enjoyed learning about new characters in the series and their special 'gifts.'

I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author in return for my honest review.

The Fortuneteller's Folly, by Wynter Daniels, is another entry into the Nocturne Falls Universe series. Ms. Daniels does a wonderful job of really matching the 'tone' of the universe created by Kristen Painter, and the characters she's created are intriguing, especially Darcy and Aiden who were each a more unique type of paranormal than usually written about, even in the Nocturne Falls series. The two main cha

* I received an ebook from the author but that in no way affected my opinions or review. *

I love the town of Nocturne Falls, I love the characters, the charisma, the premise, but most of all I love Halloween being all year round....this book was not written by the creator of the series, but the author did an amazing job with keeping it true to the series and the books that author Kristen Painter writes.

This one was a good one, and I felt that it did follow the timeline that the actual series fol

First of all, I need to move to Nocturne Falls, what a fun place to live! This book is a fantastic short read. It covers it all in a short amount of time. Romance, intrigue, drama, and near death excitement that will keep you turning the pages and needing to know what will happen next. I fell in love with the characters right away and the only thing that could make this story any better is if it were longer!

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Well, I love Nocturne Falls series by Kristen Painter, so I was excited to know other authors joined in Nocturne Falls Universe. This is the 7th book in the universe, and one of the best.

The style, although different and had its own characteristic, was in line with general Nocturne Falls style. It’s about someone, a supernatural,

The Fortuneteller's Folley by Wynter Daniels is a story in the Nocturne Falls Universe written by Kristen Painter.

Daniels' Folley is a fun addition to the Universe we all know and love. It's wonderful meeting not just new characters, but new supernaturals.

One is cursed and vows never to have children to pass the curse to, the other is the last in his line, and vows to pass his gifts to his children. When the two meet, its a spell-fest!

This was the best book. I swear, I kept having to remind myself that Kristen wasn't the author of it! It is so much like her writing and fits so perfectly into the world. I want more of this author! If you like Kristen's Nocturne Falls Universe, this will be right up your ally. The characters were so great. And I didn't guess who the bad guy was. I loved seeing Alice. We even got a short scene with Roxy. I just can't put into words how great this book is. I don't want to spoil anything so I'll l ...more

I really like this short story, it fit in so well with everything Kristen Painter has written. I think it would've made a better sized book to get more of the curse's back story in. I also thought there was a bit too much back and forth in the lead female's head, but that's just my personal preference. Other than those two things, it was a very good story! ...more

Wahoo! Another great book in the NFU where it is Halloween 365. Really like that the author used supernatural beings that were less known, made reading very interesting. Well written, page turner, enjoy!

I have not read the other stories in the Nocturnal Falls series. I have read other stories by this other and love her. This short story is full of fun, intrigue, mystery and romance. You will fall in love with Darcy and her determination in trying not to fall for Aiden. You will love how Aiden is not one to give up on what he wants and gives it his all.

The Fortuneteller's Folly by Wynter Daniels

A Kindle world story from Kristen Painter's Nocturne Falls where the small town celebrates Halloween every day so the residents can live openly.
This story features a healer and a fortune teller, a curse and a deadly spell.

This novella is charming. No pun intended. The heroine wants to move forward in life, but is afraid because of the curse that is sure to end her life within the next year. She changes her mind a couple of times about pursuing the relat

Darcy is the nail lady at Hair Scare, a palm reader, with bird like qualities thanks to her powers, and living her life under a curse that has taken the female members of her family to an early grave. Aiden is a healer and an EMT. After treating Darcy for an electrical shot scare Aiden asks her out on a date on the pretence of making sure she is ok. But their chemistry together is magnetic.

Another wonderful addition into the Nocturne Falls Universe. Darcy is a strong woman, but living on a self

In this story we meet two new paranormals, Darcy, a Byangomi, who reads palms psychically, and Aidan, who is a Kachina healer. Darcy's big problem is that she is living under a curse that killed both her mother and grandmother. Refusing to have children and pass the curse on, she has avoided relationships. Then Aidan weakened her resolve. Now she is exploring ways to break the curse...but someone else seems to be casting deadly spells on her! I never expected the person revealed. A very good add ...more

In Nocturne Falls it's always Halloween. At least that's what the tourists believe. They don't know this universe of Supernatural characters are quite real... for instance, at the Hair Scar Salon you can have your fortune told while getting your nails done by Darcy Kumar. It's here that she first meets the very sexy fireman Aiden Becker who brings his Grandmother in to get her hair done. He's also a Kachina healer. Darcy and Aiden each have their own pressures to deal with. Aiden's has to do wit ...more

This story is about Darcy Kumar, a fortuneteller who is cursed to die young, and Aiden Becker, a Kachina healer. The whole idea and the story are pretty good and interesting. Due to the nature of the curse and some added problems, this story contains more suspense than the other stories, which was quite nice.
However, there are some fundamental problems in this story. First of all, the writing is not as smooth and fabulous as I expected and the characters are not as strong, independent and lovabl

I loved that the heroine is a different kind of beauty that introduces ethnic diversity in the Nocturne Falls Universe. Without giving away too much, I also loved that distinctions made between curses, spells, hexes, witches, sorcerers etc.. and the introduction of a new kind of paranormal, a Kachina healer. The questions it brings up about submitting vs. fighting your supposed destiny are intriguing, the romance is spicier than the canonical Kristen Painter romances, and the writing is more sop ...more

I've only read one story so far and that's The Fortuneteller's Folley by Wynter Daniels.
Darcy Kumar is a cursed Palm Reader and has moved to Nocturne Falls (a town of humans & supernaturals). She's attracted to Aiden Reed, who is an EMT and the last of the Kachina Healers. Because of the curse she doesn't want to get involved with him and have him hurt. However, Aiden isn't giving up so easily!

Darcy was certain that her family curse will kill her.
That is what she thought we started to have little accidents.
Aiden was smitten w/ Darcy.
He was not going to give up Darcy w/o a fight.
However, was the curse trying to kill Darcy or what there something else?
With help of their friends, they were able to figure it out that someone was using magic against

This is a great addition to the Nocturne Falls world. Darcy is such a brave character and is far more patient with people when they don't believe her about her curse. Aiden is a hot fireman and the perfect match for Darcy. It's always a pleasure to visit Nocturne Falls and catch up with old friends. Wynter Daniels did a wonderful job writing in this world. ...more

This was a fun addition to the Nocturne Falls Universe. I really liked the pairing of someone who is cursed and fated to die young with a protector and healer. It was the perfect pairing. Darcy could see the future for others, but was certain that she didn't have one. She usually kept herself from falling for anyone so it wouldn't end in tragedy, but with Aiden, she couldn't help but give in and try. Aiden comes from a line of healers with Native American roots. He also has inherited protector a ...more
