The Sisters of Magical mayhem are getting a new recruit!

Sue woke in hospital after a bad car crash but she is telling no-one the full truth. Her husband wanted rid of her and decided to kill her, on her 40th Birthday! She'd already put up with so much from the hateful abuser but she just couldn't admit what he had done to her. Even to herself really.

But when her TV is possessed and she finds herself still getting sensory reminders of a%%hat, she listens to the TB and gets herself to Freewild Cov

Sue finds herself waking up in the hospital on her fortieth birthday to find that she is lucky to be alive but lies about what happened to her. She has serious injuries and is recovering in the hospital and when she finally gets home to her house, it is like the house is possessed by her husband she could smell, taste, and feel the man she had been married to. Sue saw an ad on the tv and it encouraged her to go to Freewild Cove, NC. Just so happens the bus she is on stops right in the town of Fr ...more

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

Sue Jewel finds herself in the hospital after a serious car wreck. The fact that her psychopathic husband had wrapped her in plastic and stuffed her into the trunk of the car before wrecking said car, was not a great 40th birthday present.
She walked away and he didn't.
Meanwhile, it seems like something supernatural and very dark is haunting her.
She somehow makes it to Freewild Cove and meets a few others like her that needed a new start on their lives. Including the handsome coffee shop owner.

Midlife comeback Indeed!
This was the first series I’ve read from Michelle (great name of course!) but I can’t wait to read more by her! If this book and series doesn’t inspire you to stand up, grab life by the balls, and make t your own, nothing will! These ladies may be “midlife” but there is NOTHING midlife about them! With a mischievous ghost grandma, they are just getting started! The only negative is waiting for the next one!

Yeah, Sue is in need of help and Julia decides to give her a spiritual intervention. You will be brought to tears with Sue's story, yet I think you will be uplifted as well. Sue has to go thru "hell" and not only does she remember what she's made of, but she learns the true meaning of sisterhood in the process. ...more

This is a Woman's empowerment novel! In turn it is sad, scary, fun, shocking and heartwarming. I loved how Sue pushes through all the negative. The ending was perfection. I received an advanced copy of this book and freely leave this honest review. ...more

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 happen

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

Sue is new and her story is amazing!

Susan Jewel wakes in the hospital, not wanting to fully acknowledge what had happened to her. The only good thing was that her no good husband was dead. After returning to the home that she and her husband had shared, she found an old ring that she put on. She had a seriously frightening experience involving electronics and a ghost which caused her to hastily flee the home and city. The bus breaks down in Lorna, Vivienne and Heather's town and Sue meets them.

Sue Jewel should be dead. She told the police her husband had prepared everything, wrapping her in plastic and stuffing her in the trunk. The truth is that he was abusive for many years, and she was ashamed that she let it happen and never was strong enough to get out of the situation. But Fate steps in to save her when her husband winds up dead in an accident.

And yet she still feels his oppressive presence in the house, so she leaves and goes to the town of Freewild Cove to find a new and bett

What a great addition to this series. First off you can read this as a stand alone but why would you. This whole series is great. Second I still love that these women are my age. Third Vivian is still my favorite fictional character ever. She is like me but better. This book is about Sue and I like that she is a great addition to the friends. What I would love is her magical ability in real life. This is a fun, emotional, magical read. So if you love paranormal romance/chick-lit than pick up thi ...more

Such a much needed story to tell!

Every story in this series I think is my favorite & then she writes another one that I love even more. Sue has gone through so much in this book. I can't imagine living in her shoes. I mean I can't believe she lived through that homicide attempt. If I was her I would have told the cops the truth! He didn't deserve to die with a good reputation. She knew he was dead so why keep lying for him? It would have definitely kept her mother in law from ever calling her ag

If you believe in love , magic and second chance then this lovely well written little gem is for you. Who says midlife is to late for a do over. Well when magic comes looking for you and leads you to wonderful gift then it's time to pack it all up and leave it all behind. That's what a Sue Jewel did , what she got was a new life, new friends and new love something she never had before.
So when given the chance take you might get something far better and more wonderful then you ever had and kick s

Cheers to second chances

This series is all about second chances, and this book is no different. Definitely the one with the darkest start I’ve ever read from this author, but it was worth being scared out of my wits.

Julia made me laugh, as did some of the beloved characters from the first books. To say I love the original trio is an understatement, as is my admiration for Sue’s strength. What she went through, how she felt and dealt with it, were masterfully written.

If I could have, I would’ve g

I love all the characters in this series and Sue Jewel is the new addition in this book. In Sue's journey, she survives abuse and gains caring friends and real love. Her journey takes her to Grandma Julie and the revelation that ghosts exist along with special powers. It's those powers and Grandma Julie's special ring that causes her to follow the signs taking her to Freewild Cove. Those caring new friends (Heather, Lorna and Vivien) along with Grandma Julie help her to get rid of the darkness o ...more

Book 4 in the Order of Magic series is a touching, emotional read, with frequent bouts of humor to even out the ride. Michelle M. Pillow has created an interesting town, with likeable characters. I'd like to be part of this circle of strong, talented women with extraordinary connections to each other. And the magic they share is only a tiny piece of the bond they forge for themselves. The Fifth Sense is a worthy addition to an amazing series. I'm so looking forward to the next book. ...more

Read this Series!

Michelle Pillow has created a wonderful series and I loved how the heroine, Sue, went from afraid, alone and being a mouse to being a woman that had respect for herself and for her new friends. Her romance, I loved it! It happened so fast...just like it did for me and my husband of forty years. Read this, read in order, you will thoroughly enjoy it.

The Fifth Sense!!!!

A wonderful read!! A perfect description of a life spent with an abusive spouse. Even though the spouse has died, without outside care and support, there is Fear, doubt, and sleeplessness!
I have read all of MS Pillow's Paranormal Women's Fiction Romance Novels and have preordered The Sixth Sense. I patiently await it's due date.

Enjoyed!

Sue has a horrible marriage to an abusive husband, then an abusive ghost. She is magically herded to our paranormal town with ghostly grandma helping out. Entertaining and clever, I liked the characters and the budding friendships that formed. Not as many interactions as her other books, but still a good read from Michelle.

Sue is an abused woman who moves away to find a new life. It’s a tale of survival, hope, love, friendship and of course magic!!
The newest instalment in the order of magic series is fantastic and I highly recommend it!!

The fifth Spell

This is a page turner. You are kept wondering what the ghost is going to do next. You see Sue grow stronger as time passes. The magic ring from Julia helps Sue find her magic and. Well read this to find out.
Michelle M Pillow writes some of the best paranormal stories I’ve read.

I loved it so much that when I finished reading in the evening the next time I opened my book I re-read two or three chapters behind to make sure I understood what was going on. I truly regret finishing this book. I will start the first one of this series again. That is how much I enjoyed this book.

So good!

Sue fits right in with Heather, Viv and Lorna. I love how she grew from a timid mouse into a strong independent woman living for herself and her friends. Another fantastic PWF read.

You really feel for Sue as she faces the ghost of her dead husband. She is scared and not ready to believe in the magic. Lorna, Vivien and Heather show her friendship and sisterhood.
I love these books!!
