Publisher's Summary

Paranormal women's fiction romance from NYT and USAT best-selling author, Michelle M. Pillow!

Heather Harrison sees ghosts. It's not something she brags about. In fact, she wished she didn't. Communicating (or not communicating) with the dead only leads to heartache, and for her it led to a divorce. For the most part, she's happy being single. She's got a good business, close friends, and a slightly overprotective brother. What more does a 40-something woman need?

When her two best friends beg her for help in contacting loved ones, against her better judgment she can't say no to the séance. But some gateways shouldn't be opened, and some meddling spirits shouldn’t be stirred...like that of her Grandma who insists she's "found her a nice man".

The supernaturals have come out to play and it's up to this amateur medium to protect herself and her friends before the danger they summoned comes to bite them in the backside.

Perfect for fans of Denise Grover Swank, K.F. Breene, Shannon Mayer, Jana DeLeon, Kristen Painter, Darynda Jones, Mandy M. Roth, Robyn Peterman, Deanna Chase, Eve Langlais, Elizabeth Hunter and Christine Gael.

Direct hit to the feels

Oh this one got me in the feels. As a mom, I can’t imagine the devastation of losing a child. Heather has just been existing in the last decade since her sons death. When finally she thinks she sees him. Turn out to be a girl named Jan. The daughter of her new subcontractor and both of them take her world for a spin. The heart warming quality is till there and the narrator invoked so much emotion especially at the end. He guy voices are a little silly but none of that took away from the story and I was totally captivated!

A Reason to Life and A New Beginning

The Fourth Power is Heather's story. While on the outside, Heather has a business, good friends, and a brother which she is close despite that he didn't believe in ghosts (that was until he met Lorna). Inside, Heather is still grieving for her son, Travis who was killed by a drunk driver. Everyday, she is going through the motion of trying to live. Her son was the only ghost that she couldn't see or make contact with.

Heather hired an electrician, Martin to restore the Anderson House. She has noticed that Martin is attractive but she has never acted on her attraction. It was until she met Jan, Martin's daughter and started to see hint of Jan being an amateur medium. To Martin, Jan's ability to see ghosts was explained as an overactive imagination of having invisible friends.

Now Heather has to saved Jan from a spirit that is using her to do things for it.

The only thing I didn't like was why didn't Travis visit his mom, Heather after his death? He avoided his mom for 10 years. But for a ten year old kids, their reasoning is different from adults. Otherwise, I'm glad that Heather can find closure.

The narrator, Rebecca Cook did another great job in narrating The Fourth Power. The narrator gave Heather, the characteristic of someone who is trying to find a reason for living after the death of her son. Her voice for Lorna and Vivian are great. Lorna is a lot more happier and Vivian is as outspoken as always. There is a bit of happiness in Vivian.

I can't wait for the next book. I checked and there is a fourth book in this series. The ending did give a hint of what is next for Heather, Vivian, and Lorna. Of course, I am rooting for these 40-something women.

I was given this audiobook by the author. I have decided to voluntary write an unbiased review for this book. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.

Very good

An interesting and entertaining story about lost family and love and moving past grief to find happiness again. I like the addition of January to the group and look forward to more of these stories! The narrator did a fantastic job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene. I won a copy of the audiobook in a giveaway and have voluntarily left this review.

Looking forward to book 4

I'm not sure what drew me to this series - I think it's a combo of
-middle aged women alone create a bond
-they're unconditional in their emotional support,
-they support each other psychically
-a little mystery with their psychic lifestyle
This isn't a scary haunting, murder mystery to me - it's almost like a warm blanket on a cool day that's comfortable and cozy. Purely an enjoyable listening experience for me and not over the top -
Rebecca Cook did a terrific job narrating also, giving personality and lilt in her voice to each character.

What a great read

I normally read ya to keep away from explicit language and sex. But this beautiful book has a little bit of mystery, a little bit of romance and a whole lot of love and happily ever after.

Not as good as first book, but still good

My biggest complaint is the narrator does a good job with female voices, but all the men sound like they are really old. REALLY old.

A new woman is introduced at the end, so the series will continue. Will probably get it when it comes out........

Love This Series

I like Heather so much and this book is her story. She has the one gift i wish I could have, seeing ghost. It's so sad about her son. I really don't know what would happen to me if my daughter died. It's all so sad much like the way Heather lives her life. It's good that she has great friends to lean on. I love everything about this series, it's just so wishful. I wish I friends like Lorena, Heather or Vivian. I wish I powers like them, maybe. I wish I had new loves like they did. Wishful. I can't wait to hear the next book. Hint-hint Michelle M. Pillow.

Keep tissues close.

Short review tonight:
This has been my favorite in the series so far but also my most dreaded. Only because I knew it would get my tear ducts working overtime.
It does star all 3 bff witches but it mostly revolves around Heather this time. It is her backstory with Travis that I was dreading & got me crying massively. Then eventually in walks Martin and January & the water works ensue once more.
Michelle M Pillow knows how to pull emotions out of her readers but in a very good cleansing the soul way.
I highly recommend this!!

Beautiful emotional story

This is a beautiful emotional story. Heather lost her son when he was ten years old. She has never recovered, her marriage didn't survive the loss. This story had me in tears so many times. This is a fantastic story, so well written with an understanding of the grief involved in loosing a child.

Wonderful book

Another amazing book by Michelle M Pillow. I absolutely loved this book, I am going to have to read the first book and then the fourth, or maybe get them and read them in order. With Michelle's books you are always guaranteed a brilliant book in my opinion. The characters are so likeable you want good things to happen to them and in the end they do. I love that they are audiobooks as I can get on with jobs and transport myself somewhere else.
Thank you for giving me a free audiobook in return for an honest review.

Fourth Power

Just loved this latest instalment in the Order of Magic series. This one is Heather’s story and it has all the right mix of heartache, happiness and romance. The narration was spot on and I’m looking forward to listening to the Fifth Sense once it’s released on audio!

Loving all these PWF books

Love the mature women in this fabulous series. All over 40. All going through some sort of heartache.
I found this story a bit sad at times with Heather's past, because all she wanted was to talk to her son, but his spirit wouldn't talk to her. Instead, chose a young girl named January. Heather, Lorna and Vivien help Jan and her dad, since she's like Heather.
The 3 friends have found each other and help each other heal from previous heartbreak. First was Lorna, second was Vivian and now it's Heather's turn. This is a great and moving story of how coming together to help a little girl and her father leads to Heather's healing.
I love how different the characters are but also how much they have in common.
The series is amazing, three wonderful awesome women,
each battling with the pain and sorrows of what live has handed them.
Their friendship is a kind of sisterhood, they'd do anything for each other.
It had just the right amount of sadness and joy.
There's lots here, magic, ghosts, mysteries and love.
Great book!
