I LOVE THIS BOOK!! I am new to Elizabeth Lee, but based on this book I need all of her books in my life! Penny for Your Thoughts was everything I didn't know I wanted from this author! The characters are well written, the plot flows and the sweetness (and heat) from this book are PERFECT!! FIVE HUGE STARS!!

Elizabeth Lee is a new author to me and I will definitely be reading more of her books. Penny For Your Thoughts is a sweet, light hearted book and it’s just what I needed in my life. I love a good small town romance and this fun and sexy book was sprinkled with just the right amount of magic.

Fate definitely brought AJ and Penny together as Penny is a recently divorced (her ex husband had an affair with his assistant) single mom of her five and a half year old son, Jordan who just moved back to

I have been waiting a long time for a new Elizabeth Lee, and Penny For Your Thoughts was worth it! Penny is sweet and quirky, unlike any other character I've ever read. I loved the uniqueness of her character. She was cheated on by her husband and moves back in with her mother in the hometown she couldn't wait to get away from. She meets AJ in the most unexpected of ways and soon she realizes that sometimes the place and people you couldn't wait to get away from as a kid are exactly what you nee ...more

This is the first book I’ve read by Elizabeth Lee and I will definitely be reading more from her. I really enjoyed this book. It’s about a woman who returns back to her hometown, where there’s plenty of unpleasant memories, and finds her mom’s business is in trouble. Fates Landing is a small run down town. AJ comes to town for business where his family wants to build a resort, which will also help the town. The characters are great - full of emotions - heartfelt. Very enjoyable read...I recommen ...more

I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Charismatic and emotional, Penny for Your Thoughts is magic threaded through the pages of romance. I enjoyed my first read from Elizabeth Lee and I am excited to venture back to Fate's Landing for book 2.

What a cute story! Elizabeth Lee is a new author for me. I enjoy finding new authors to read and enjoy. This is one of those stories where it’s an incredibly relatable storyline. How often do we hear the story about the spouse find their spouse cheating on them with the assistant? So we run off. We run home, to our momma. Am I right, or what? Well this story has a bit of a wacky twist. Home is in Fate’s Landing, home of her momma’s struggling psychic business. You can just feel the quirkiness of ...more

As soon as I saw that Elizabeth Lee was writing a book about a psychic, I was there for it. And she did not disappoint me.

I was there for all the crystals and tarot readings, and just all the feels.

I related to Penny, our heroine, on so many levels.

Penny left her hometown of Fate's Landing in hopes of leaving her magical mother and her own gift behind. She spent years being taunted, but when she found the man of her dreams, she vowed never to return.

That is until she had nowhere else to go. Fr

Elizabeth Lee is a new to me author and I was instantly hooked on this story. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series!

AJ Murphy is stuck in Fate’s Landing working on a resort and gulf course development. He brings his girlfriend and plans to propose, however, after a visit with Penny and two palm readings later things change….

A funny quirky book about a girl, Penny, and her crazy town of Fate’s Landing. Ok, it's more about how a girl finding her stupid husband cheating on her and goes home to her psychic/palm reading mom in her hometown of Fate’s Landing. But once she got there she found her mom needed her and her business wasn't what it use to be, and neither was the town. However, A.J. has come to town with the idea of making it a resort town. This normally doesn't go well for the town but he made the mistake of me ...more

Penny For Your Thoughts was a very sweet story of adoration and love with a hint of magic. There's tiny hints of drama throughout the novel, but it's mostly smooth sailing for our characters, so if you're looking for a pleasant read to get you through a rainy day or to enjoy on a beach, then you're probably at the right place. It's not going to get your heart-racing out of your chest or thread anxiety through your veins, but it's full heart, fabulous characters, and magic.

I have read books by this author before and have always enjoyed them.

This is the first book in a brand new series. It is set in "Fate's Landing" which is a quirky, small town that our protagonist finds herself back in after her life suddenly changes. "Fate's Landing" is full of interesting characters who I am sure we will be revisiting in future stories of this series.

PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS has romance, humor, angst, redemption and wonder family and friends. This story is totally in my wheelhou

This is the first book by Elizabeth Lee that I've read. And I really enjoyed it.
It's an easy read, lovely characters, and a good plot. One of those books that you smile as you're reading.
I loved Penny and her mother's relationship - and their abilities to read people. Penny's son was a cutie.
But Penny and AJ? Well, that was just meant to be! Ahhh!!!

Penny and AJ’s story is sweet as pie from beginning to end. From their bumpy beginning, to their wild ride of a romance, to all of the twists and turns that threaten to keep them apart, their story is emotionally entertaining. You get to see Penny evolve from a divorced, insecure woman to something more, but you also get to see her struggles along the way - which I can personally relate to since I’m going through a similar transformation (just without the gifts that she has). And AJ - swoon wort ...more

This book was incredible i read it in one sitting.
Penny and Aj's story is a fast paced love story with lots of emotions, conflict and heat and that's just between the main two characters.
I can't wait to see what happens with other characters.

“She is nothing like what I thought I wanted and everything I never knew I needed.”Penny for your Thoughts is mixed with humor, angst and romance. The main characters are likable and I was rooting for them since they met. Set in a small town with wonderful secondary characters. There’s great banter, good humor, and a bit of drama. A really enjoyable contemporary romance. First book I've read by this author and am looking forward to the next book in this series.

I had been very impatiently waiting for another book by Elizabeth Lee and yet again she did not disappoint. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about a book with a psychic but I loved it! I even found my self looking up how to read my own palm lines!

Penny’s and AJ’s story and the town of Fate’s Landing pulled me in from the beginning. Penny’s backstory and the insecurities she carried with her from her broken marriage is something I feel like we all can or have related to. The only man she car

After her divorce, Penny is back home with her son. This isn't where she expected to be. She should have trusted her psychic abilities. She'll never make that mistake again. Fate's Landing has fallen on hard times. AJ is here to build a resort. He and Penny get off to a rocky start, even though their chemistry is powerful. As they grow closer, I wanted them to be together for every. I wished that Penny would trust herself and didn't push AJ away. He's a keeper. AJ is caring and sweet. I love how ...more

I was really excited to get a new book from Elizabeth Lee. I'm even more excited to say it was magic! It was perfectly sweet with great moments of heat. You don't have to believe in psychics to believe the wonder of this love story. I love books about a single mom finding the right man. AJ is one of those men that proves my belief that book boyfriends are best.

Lee did an amazing job of developing several supporting characters that have me anxiously waiting on their stories as the series continu

Penny can sense things. She can read people as well as she can read palms. When her life falls down around her, she finds herself back at her mom’s house in Fate’s Landing, helping to run the family business (fortune telling, tarot reading, and mysticism). It’s a life she ran like hell to escape years ago but now that she’s back, wiser and with baggage and a kid, she won’t ignore the signs again. AJ is the son of a major real estate mogul sent

This was an ARC given to me by the author and it is my first read by her.

Just reading the blurb I was very interested in this book! And then I got it and the prologue got me right away!! Which I just love when that happens cuz I never want to put the book down and figure out what happens right away.

I have to say that I loved Penny! I thought she was very strong with everything that happened to her growing up in her small town with her psychic mother, she overcame, yes a little different than who

How do you open your heart again after love betrays you? Penny finds herself back in Fate’s Landing, a hometown she wanted to escape, rebuilding her life with her son Jordan. Being the ‘freak’ because your mother is psychic growing up was hard and when she met Derek, she thought he was the love of her life until he cheated. As she helps her mother grow her business, a real estate developer arrives and a fateful palm reading has Penny sharing her two-cents with him. AJ doesn’t know why he takes P ...more

Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe.
