Happy reading.

    So glad certain ends were tied up! Thank goodness the Nina story ended with this! Granted as anti-climatic as it was, I am kinda bummed that it ended with such little fanfare, but seriously please don’t do that again! The dragging on of consultants between two books is a bore that I don’t think I would care to see repeated again. It’s one thing to have characters like Logan and Davina linger between books because they serve an overall purpose. What was the Nina purpose? She didn’t even have to use So glad certain ends were tied up! Thank goodness the Nina story ended with this!

It’s one thing to have characters like Logan and Davina linger between books because they serve an overall purpose. What was the Nina purpose? She didn’t even have to use any of her new magic to figure anything out! Had that man not showed up, with the daughter in tow, that particular story would’ve dragged on even more. Let’s talk about this particular consultant’s story. I was once more taken aback by how the story just ended without us getting any real resolution about what was happening with Hazel and the whole Kay business. The story had a few inconsistencies and it was kinda weird how it all unfolded/wrapped up. She used a memory wipe, but clearly that magic didn’t affect her “familiars” who obviously let something slip as she mentioned the “key” after she was supposed to have forgotten about it.also did we clearly not notice there were TWO men who were behind the whole stolen time business yet only one was apprehended and that was that. So why did I give this four stars if these were pretty solid gripes? Because this was a pretty great book to read. Even though some of our girl gang took a back seat and Wynter was left to her own devices, it was still a pleasant read and Wynter got to shine and GROW. Emotional growth and wisdom do not cease at a certain age or point in one’s life, we are all capable of continuing to learn and adapt and Wynter is no different.

    This world is definitely interesting. There's a lot going on but it doesn't seem like too much. It will be interesting to see if the author has Wynter actually fail to help someone and how she'll take it. We kinda saw that with Nina. But it would be a little unrealistic to have her not fail at least once. She made the big production out of needing to lock up her stuff. There was a couple of times I know I was a bit anxious because it seemed like she didn't follow through with locking it up. But This world is definitely interesting.

But I guess it's more of the author didn't write it in than leading to some finding/stealing it. Although that may be a future plot point. 🤷‍♀️ Would I read again? Yes.

    I really loved reading the further adventures of Wynter and how much she continues to grow in her role as the Oracle. It is nice that this story cleared up the cliffhanger from the previous book. The fact that she and Logan are still working on their relationship with each other is fun to read. I cannot say much about that since it would constitute spoilers and I don’t want to do that. It is nice to learn more about Caro and cannot wait to hear about her adventures.

They both have issues that they need to deal with, and I cannot wait to see what happens when Logan meets Wynter’s children

    Absolutely fantastic I've read all five books in this series and pre ordered book 6. Midlife, coming into powers you had no idea existed, suddenly dealing with spirits, otherworldly beings.....well, now you have the start to an absolutely fun series. Throw in tall, dark and handsome, a true (stick by your side) best friend, love, mystery, great storytelling, witty dialogue, and believable characters. Fantastic.

    Good read This series is so engrossing. Book 5 has 2 story lines at the same time...1 a hangover from Book 4, and a new one. Wynter's menopause problems have taken a back seat to everything else in this book. More danger has appeared along with new magic. There is a little humor, mystery, danger, loads of magic, a little romance, and friendship. Highly recommend. Good read This series is so engrossing.

    Double shot Wynter did overtime in this one and just as it looked like she was getting a break, wham, she's multitasking again. Wynter is definitely coming into her own & surprise to everyone, she's actually something more. Good thing she's embraced her new self, now she just needs to master this too.

Now Wynter has to help her find out what is happening and also needs to figure out how to break the hex on Nina. Lots is excitement and changes in this story. Excited for the next one. Great!

    The witch and the oracle In this book by Lisa Manifold, Wynter is upset that she can't help Nina when she gets a new consultant who is missing chunks of time. She has to figure out why while being there for Caro. I loved this book and couldn't put it down.

    I enjoyed this book and would have given it 5 stars, except for the word consultant. A consultant is the person giving the advice not the person receiving it. Reading this book felt like walking through a beautiful room and stepping on a tack every few steps. Consultant. Look it up.

    Keeps your interest Don't want to give anything away, but love Wynter's developing power. The ending makes you want the next book available right then. Love that she is powerful and still want us the best for all. Keeps your interest Don't want to give anything away, but love Wynter's developing power.

    Wow what an ending This was a bit of nail biter for a while. I enjoyed every word of it. The ending was quite good ... I knew what that woman had something about to do with him; I just had not gone where the plot took me.

    suspenseful indeed I am so glad Wynter is getting more powerful because she will need it. I am enjoying the side characters they add to a more suspenseful story. Logan is going to be a huge part of the next story and I cannot wait.

    Best in the series Couldn’t put this book down. I loved everything about it. I truly enjoy that we read the romance and love development but not have to go through pages of love making. I feel that many other authors you long drawn out sex scenes to make their books longer.

    Fun Mystery, magic, and a touch of paranormal. I admire this more confident Wynter who knows what needs to be done even when it goes against her nature. This series continues to get better with each book.

    It just keeps getting... It just keeps getting better, scarier, emotional and romantic! There's never a lull in Wynter's life! At least her kids are safe! It just keeps getting...

    Still a great story The story is still very good, but the editing of the last couple books has been very sloppy and distracting.
