Publisher's Summary

It’s paranormal women’s fiction for lovers of magic, mayhem, and a solid afternoon nap (when they can squeeze one in). 

Toni Dusi grew up knowing everyone’s business and everyone knowing hers, because in Moonstone Cove, you can’t pass a restaurant, farm, or winery that doesn’t have at least one Dusi involved. Despite that, Toni has managed to carve out a private niche for herself. She has a car shop she loves, a country cottage all to herself, and has carefully avoided any long-term romantic commitments. 

Then fate handed Toni a shot of supernatural empathy that threw all that out the window of her prized vintage Ford. 

Now she’s feeling the mood swings of everyone, from her parts guy to her reluctant crush to her second cousin going through a messy divorce. She’s losing her temper, she’s crying a river, and she’s definitely giving in to temptation.

For a woman who prides herself on always being prepared, Toni has no idea how to handle a supernatural storm of emotion.

Which is not to say empathy doesn’t have its advantages. When the body of a long-time family rival turns up on a back acre of her cousin’s winery, Toni realizes that her inconvenient feelings magic has turned her into one heck of a lie detector. Along with her new friends, Katherine and Megan, she might be the only one who can clear her cousin’s name.

When fate throws a final curveball in Toni’s direction, will she drop everything with disastrous consequences? Or can a 41-year-old empath learn enough new tricks to keep the life she’s built without sacrificing her happiness?

Fate Actually is a paranormal women’s fiction novel and the second book in the Moonstone Cove series by USA Today best-selling author Elizabeth Hunter.

Romance for More Mature Women

I very much enjoyed the Glimmer Lake trilogy that preceded this series, but I'm liking Moonstone Cove even more. The three women who are the center of this series are unique, strong, clever, and funny. I adored the couple in the first book, Runaway Fate, and enjoyed the forming of the couple in the current book as well. Ava Lucas brings these books to life with wonderful narration and adds to the experience. I'm eager to read the next book which will focus on the feisty Southern Bell of the series... fun all around!

Love this series

Henry and Toni are both great characters. Lots of laughs, drama and down right fun.
I really love that the males in Moonstone Cove and Glimmer Lake are not portrayed as A-Holes.
I love that there is a romance without it being Porn.

Elizabeth Hunter one of my favorite authors.

Ava Lucas is awesome too.

Another great addition to series

Elizabeth Hunter has crafted another great addition to her series. Ava Lucas gave a great performance as she brought the story to life and gave each character had a distinct voice. I highly recommend this book/audiobook to cozy fiction fans.

Murder & Romance in Wine Country

First I recommend you read the Gilmore Lake 3 book series in order before this series in order. (You will enjoy both series). This book is the second of a three book series. Involves 3 middle age women’s friendship and adventure. All three have different psychic powers and live in a small town. Each book focuses on one of the women. This book is centered around Toni. Toni, 42 and single, owns and works in an auto shop. And one day she meets a man that helps to change her life. I have enjoyed this book much more than the last. Good murder mystery, good romance (without all the heavy heated sex scenes) and plenty of suspense and a few laughs.

Just Gets Better!!

This series Just Gets better and better! I am loving it. Toni is such a feisty thing and I adore the friendship that has grown between her, Katherine and Megan. The interactions between her and everyone is so funny. she has my sarcastic mouth, but a big heart! I love it! And add the sweetest, hottest man on earth, Henry...who can go wrong! And the cherry on top is a murder mystery! And if you want two cherries on top, have Ava Lucas do your narration!!! pure perfection!!! I can't wait for the next one!!! ❤❤❤

Wonderful series

Moonstone Cove is a wonderful series about 3 women who get unexpected paranormal powers. Toni and Henry are a great couple. Henry's ability to roll with whatever Toni throws at him is an admirable quality and Toni is beginning to see that when she has to tell him that life has thrown them a curveball. I'm looking forward to listening to the final book in the series. Elizabeth Hunter writes with just enough humor to make the book more interesting. Ava Lucas is a wonderful narrator, too.
