Excerpt
Lottie Baldwin glanced in her rearview mirror and frowned. Why hadn’t her tarot cards foreseen this? Red flashing lights reflected from the revolving dome atop a sheriff’s car, trailing directly behind her. After driving four hundred miles, the final hundred with the afternoon sun glaring in her eyes, the last thing she needed was a speeding ticket. She eased off the accelerator and pulled into the breakdown lane of the small, two-lane highway.

The sheriff’s car stopped behind her and a tall, muscular man in a black uniform got out. Lottie watched him in the mirror, absentmindedly patting her tousled blond curls into place, fascinated by the lithe way he moved. She’d never been interested in the law-and-order type, but this man might be the one who could change her mind. She opened her window, letting in the unseasonably mild early-December air.

He leaned down and removed his sunglasses. “May I see your license and registration, please?”

“Of course, Sheriff,” Lottie said, smiling briefly to bring her dimples into view as she read his badge—Lake County, North Dakota Sheriff’s Department. He was even more gorgeous up close, with dark blue eyes and broad shoulders that strained the top buttons of his shirt. The setting sun tinged his blond hair coppery-gold, and a light breeze brought the subtle scent of his spicy aftershave to her nostrils. His proximity made her light-headed. “What’s the problem? Was I speeding?” she asked innocently as she rummaged in the bottom of her purse for her driver’s license.

“You were going sixty-eight in a fifty-five zone, ma’am,” he said, accepting her license and registration.

“I’m sorry, Sheriff. I’ve been on the road since six this morning. I guess I was anxious for the trip to be over.” She smiled again, more intimately this time.

“Lottie Baldwin,” he read from her driver’s license. “Blond hair, gray eyes. From New York?”

“Not anymore.” She shook her head. “I’m moving to Cheyenne and I’m so sorry to make such a poor first impression on the local law enforcement. Can we start over?” She extended her hand.

The officer studied her for a minute then grasped her hand in his. “Pleased to meet you, ma’am. My name is Harlan Erikson. I’m a deputy sheriff here and, as lovely as you are, I’m afraid I’m going to have to write you a ticket.”

As their hands touched, tingles shot up Lottie’s arm. Lovely, was she? The man had good taste! “You just do what you have to do,” she purred. “I respect a man who does his job.” She made no move to withdraw her hand, letting it lie trustingly in his.

What the reviewers are saying
This was a super easy read with a lot going on. The story isn’t the lengthiest of novels, and that leads to a little less detail and a little bit of a faster unfolding of the relationship and the mystery aspects. I think all in all Elizabeth Delsi managed to balance the length and pacing well. The characters were my favorite part of the novel. I felt connected to Lottie and understood her attraction and relationship with Harlan. The mystery was fun and kept me guessing. ~ Novel News Network

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. ~ Jess, Nerdy, Dirty and Flirty

I thoroughly enjoyed Mistletoe Medium. The characters are rich and engaging, with enough quirks to make them believable. The action moves along steadily to a tense climax, and the story is exactly the right length. I’m looking forward to more in the series, as the author promises in her afterword. I can’t wait!
