Summary

The Bloomin' Psychic Boxed Set includes the first three books in the series.

Petal to the Metal

Forty-two-year-old Mia Thorne is not living her best life. After a disastrous career- and relationship-ending event, she escapes New York City and moves to a sleepy river town in Pennsylvania, courtesy of a dead aunt she never knew. Aunt Hazel was the reclusive family nut, a self-proclaimed psychic. Of course, Mia’s dad always told her that she, too, had the gift, but after his death, her mother made sure to squelch the notion. No square pegs allowed! 

Aunt Hazel’s old cottage is only slightly better than the decrepit gardens surrounding it. Mia doesn’t know the first thing about gardening and expects this will be one more failure on her seemingly endless list. Even Aunt Hazel’s ancient cat seems to have pegged her as a loser. 

When Mia stumbles over a body in the overgrown garden, the newcomer catches the eye of the police chief and his hotshot detective, Derek Fairfax, and she becomes the number one suspect in the case. Much to her shock and awe, she also catches the eye of Derek’s brother, Dane, a lawyer with a head for what’s legal and a bod for what isn’t - but getting arrested for murder would certainly put a damper on her dating life. 

Will Mia tap into her long-buried psychic skills in order to save herself, or will she end up digging her own grave? 

Life's a Birch

Life's a birch, and then you die in a canal wearing days-of-the-week underpants.

Forty-two-year-old Mia Thorne is settling into her new life in the small riverside town of Newberry, Pennsylvania. Part of her misses the bright lights of the big city, but Mia is determined to make the best of the cottage she inherited and its surrounding gardens, as well as her blossoming love life. Residents like Scarlet and Patrick have welcomed her with open arms and encourage Mia to embrace her special abilities with the same enthusiasm. Even Ophelia seems to have accepted her presence, although Mia’s convinced the ornery cat would be perfectly content to suck out her soul if she dared to leave the bedroom door unlocked at night. 

When a body is discovered in the canal outside Scarlet’s house and the police suspect foul play, Mia rushes to her friend’s aid. Between a creepy birdwatching group and an unfriendly neighbor, Mia ends up with a list of suspects as long as Rapunzel’s hair. Unfortunately, Detective Derek Fairfax and Chief Tuck are determined to keep Mia away from the investigation under the guise of being, you know, the actual members of law enforcement - but Mia’s specialty is denial, and she’s more than happy to ignore their orders. 

Can Mia identify the killer before it’s too late, or will Scarlet find herself up a canal without a paddle?

Drive Me Daisy

Mia’s biggest nightmare is about to manifest - her mother is coming to town with her husband du jour in tow. Never mind the sorry state of the garden, the hormonal inches insulating Mia’s waist, or the Orca-sized cat that likes to rest her girth on Mia’s head in the middle of the night when she’s too tired to object. Mia has a new job to show off and a blossoming romance with a man guaranteed to win her mother’s stamp of approval - not that Mia cares what her mother thinks. She’s a middle-aged woman with her own life and...okay, she totally cares.

When a resident is killed in the middle of a parade, the whole town of Newberry is abuzz, and Mia’s mother is aghast when Jurgen is accused of the heinous crime.

Really good fun

Absolutely love The Bloomin´ Psychic series. Such fun to listen to. Good humor and lovable heroine being the main attraction. Also have to admit to enjoy getting to know the new town with the main character. A bit of suspense added after book two, it is where you realize your heroine could quite end up being killed by her snooping prowess. The really slow burn romance is kinda cute, after book three I am still not sure with whom I want her to end up with. Also I kinda enjoy how little attention the romance is getting in the books, it is kinda like the woman has more going for her than looking for a boyfriend. Still, if this issue isn´t resolved by book four, I am gonna write the author some harsh words of my own. Really, really want to listen to book four right now. Lastly, I like the narrator, but her male voices are still not that advanced. Actually that fact works with the story though. New author to me and I am liking her a lot.

Horrible narration.

The stories for the books are quite entertaining. Definitely worth READING. However, the narrator's portrayal of the main character is terrible. She is portrayed as whiny in every single line of prose. The other characters are quite good, but Mia is unacceptable, and since these stories are told in first-person, that's miserable. After the first chapter of the second book, I just couldn't take anymore, so I switched over to my Kindle.

narrator stuggle

The narrator’s portrayal is at odds with the sarcasm of the character- it’s distracting to have everything read in a whiny tone and inflection.

Entertaining and at times hilarious or meaningful

This is a lovely series. The third book is also hilarious in many places. I like that rather than a fantasy paranormal series, this series directly addresses some of the issues faced by intuitive people in real life and does so in a very entertaining manner. This series also addresses the real issues faced by the adult daughters of highly critical mothers.

I tried. I couldn’t.

I only lasted through the first chapter, and in that time the narrator managed to cycle through New York nasal, steel magnolias southern, and down under outback. There may have been a hint of Welsh in there too, but it was hard to tell because my ears were crying. I was looking forward to the audiobooks, but I’ll have to read them in print because the narration is…YIKES.

Very Funny

It was pretty entertaining. I wish the main character was smarter though. I understand she
is from the city so not knowing some things from the country but some things are common knowledge. Overall was very funny.
