Destined for Love and Danger

Sidrah Keeling, well-intentioned Boston clairvoyant and stalwart protector of her newfound family of psychics, purchases a country respite hours away from her grand Boston home. Lazy Pond Farm, just outside the town of Macoun, Massachusetts is an enormous fixer-upper, but it perfectly serves her agenda of fostering romance and promoting healing. In that order.

But instead, the group encounters trouble. Fate, as usual, has her own plans.

Macoun—named after the apple—is infested with racists led by a man who harbors terrifying secrets.

Will Jenny, Max, Sidrah, Leon, and Bones—the fabulous five—have the power to change Macoun? Will they be able to rescue those who need saving?

And what about love?

As the fates do battle, so will the lives between the wicked and the good. A twisted thread. Who will break? In How the Wicked Run, romance, mystery, and adventure collide once more for this enchanting family of audacious clairvoyants.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I had read Dead Cat, Run and Cut and Run and I liked them, so I was happy to review the third book in the trilogy.

Five psychics in Boston found each other and have become a “family.” They truly would do anything for each other. There was a lot of character development in the first book so although How the Wicked Run does stand on its own, I would recommend at least reading Dead Cat, Run first for an even better experience.

The psychics are good, moral people and know they need to help others, so they are constantly battling evil. They are led by Jenny’s visions but one of her visions is personal, and Sidrah is all over it. Jenny works so hard for others, so Sidrah wants this vision to come true so that she’ll have a little time to herself.

Once again, they’re up against evil. Once the murderer/kidnapper is brought to light to the reader, the book gets difficult to put down. The things he does to a “friend” are unfathomable.

I like how seemingly unrelated events eventually tie together. If you’re looking for a good thriller, How the Wicked Run won’t disappoint.

About the Author

Annabelle Lewis is a pseudonym for the author who lives in Minnesota but was raised in Texas. An important distinction for those who understand both states. When you read her work, this diversity will explain a lot. An avid reader since she got her first bicycle and a library card, she discovered the world, first through books. The mother of two children and several furry ones, she stayed home to raise her family, then stopped to take a breath and searched for new worlds to conquer. She found it with writing.

The Boston Clairvoyants novels as well as the Carrows Family Chronicles all take on the battle between good and evil. Vividly portrayed and humorously written, the reader will root for the bad guys to be taken down by the ensemble and recurring cast of characters in each series.

Annabelle considers herself a champion of the screwed over. And a dog lover. And an incredible mom. Oddly, she’s not a good dancer.

    Hello Dawn,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to read How the Wicked Run and for the wonderful review! The characters in this cross-genre series are so special to me and I work hard to weave the multiple storylines and clues together to create a story that’s hard to put down. I’ve got some thoughts about plotlines in book 4 that are keeping me awake so I better get writing them to see what happens! Warm regards,
    Annabelle Lewis
