Review

Lightning Strikes is a cosy mystery about a woman, Andromeda Spencer, who was struck by lightning when she was younger, which imbued her with psychic powers. Now grown, she helps her parents out at their occult shop and occasionally assists the local police with missing persons cases and kidnappings. When she is tasked with finding three abducted children, her powers open up a mystery much bigger than the police had thought. And she has a love interest in the form of a handsome, arrogant cop, Detective Cavanaugh. The book is well-designed and easy to read on a variety of devices, and the cover is well-designed and stands out as a good one for the genre. Andromeda herself is a spunky, interesting character, whose voice is very original, if occasionally overly breezy. The reader does not get a real sense of her emotional motivations, for example, even though she is attracted to the arrogant Detective Cavanaugh when she first meets him, the reader does not get a sense of what her romantic background as context for the attraction. Overall, however, it is a lively and well-paced book and a very enjoyable read. The cast of secondary characters is suitably wacky and quirky but well-meaning. ~ Judge, 2nd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published eBook Awards

I was really enjoying this story. It was funny and kept my attention and I didn't want to put it down until I got done with it and then I got to the end of the book and the story just ended. I don't know if there is going to be another book to continue the story or what. I was really disappointed. If you are starting a series and going to continue the story instead of wrapping it up into a wonderful story with a wonderful ending then you need to let people know ahead of time.

-Now that I know for sure that there is another book continuing the story, I am changing my stars to 5 stars instead of 4. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is because at that time we didn't know if there was going to be another book to continue the story or not. This book was wonderfully written and held my attention throughout the whole story. It is hard to believe that this is her first book. She writes like an experienced writer. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Entertaining story that keeps you engaged. The heroine is a real person with faults not some whiny needy damsel in distress.
There are a few editing issues but I overlooked them in my rating because I enjoyed the book. Particularly liked her quirky family and her narcolepetic cat. Looking forward to the next book.

I absolutely loved 'Lightning Strikes'. The storyline pulled me in from the beginning and did not let go. I literally could not put it down. I loved the humor throughout. I laughed out loud quite a few times. The characters were a great cast of humorous personalities. Andromeda is so damn funny. I loved her character. And Nana, she is hysterical. The way the story played out was thrilling. I can not wait to read more in this series. After reading Theresa Parker's work, I will definitely read more from her. An awesome add to your tbr list. Definitely recommended.

This book is wonderful. Andromeda has the right sassy attitude. I love her family, her friends, her man and especially her cat. I bought this book one day and her other one the next day. I have already read both. They are just great. If you like romantic comedy with a touch of the woo-woo you will not want to miss this series. Hurry up and write another one, I just can not wait.

Fun and exciting read. Story line draws you in and keeps you hooked. I laughed out loud several times! Could not put it down! I bought the 2nd book in the series and am looking forward to (hopefully) another in the future!

I will be reading more from this series. The characters make an interesting bunch, and although dementia isn't a topic to be laughed at, I kept waiting for Nana's next appearance. A bit better proofreading would have helped. Witches and pagans both know the difference between "alter" and "altar".

Andromeda Spencer can find lost things including people with her mind. She works with the local PD to help find lost children and adults. In this book, she on a case to find some lost kids that's been abducted. This book is laugh out loud funny at times despite the serious subject matter. Andromeda also has parents that own a new age type shop that she runs. Thrown into the mix is her grandma that forgets week from week who she is in the most funny ways. The book starts with grandma thinking she is the pope. Great book and well written. I even download book 2 because I liked this book so. There's also a bit of romance too. I was given this book to read for a review.
