Excerpt

“I’m not coming back, Jack. I told you that when I left.” Lottie twisted the phone cord around her index finger.


“Oh, c’mon, honey, you know you love me,” Jack wheedled. “You’re just mad. You can’t live without me and you know it.”


“Don’t kid yourself. I can live without you very well,” Lottie retorted.


There was a brief silence. Then he spoke again, all trace of supplication gone from his tone. “Nobody leaves me. Nobody. Have you got that? Now, get your ass home, pronto!”


“No, Jack,” Lottie repeated, trying to keep her voice from shaking. She had no intention of letting him know how much he frightened her. “I’m not coming back and you can’t make me.”


“Oh, yes I can,” he growled. “If you don’t come back on your own, I’m coming out there after you. I’ll drag you back by your hair! You hear me?”


“I’m hanging up now, Jack,” Lottie said. “Don’t call me again. We’re finished.” She dropped the receiver into its cradle, then leaned against the counter, trembling. Suddenly, a warm hand stole over her shoulder and a sense of safety and peace flowed through her.


“I couldn’t help but overhear,” Harlan said. “Is there anything I can do to help?”


She straightened but couldn’t face him. “No, there isn’t. Though he threatened to follow me out here, Jack’s all talk and no action. I doubt he’ll make good on his threats. But, thank you.”


Harlan grasped both her shoulders and turned her around. “If this Jack character gives you any trouble, I want you to call me and I’ll take care of him. Promise me you will?”

She looked up into his eyes—they radiated care and concern. The ice in the pit of her stomach suddenly melted. “All right, I promise.”

Review

3.5 Stars

Mistletoe Medium was a quick, fun, and easy read. I enjoyed the quirky and likable characters, interesting storyline, and psychic aspect.
Much of the story seemed rushed to me, the attraction between Lottie and Harlan and the mystery, but that's understandable due to the short length of the story. Delisi presented the mystery itself in a very compelling way, by offering clues through Lottie's psychic visions. It really pulled me in and had me trying to decipher what they could mean.
This peek into Lottie's world definitely has me intrigued. I'm quite interested in reading more of this series to learn even more about these captivating characters.
