The Reluctant Psychic by Suzan Saxman and Perdita Finn

Release Date - January 27, 2015

Suzan Saxman

St. Martin's

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

The writing style in The Reluctant Psychic pulled me in. It's warm, friendly, and definitely introduces you to Suzan Saxman in manner that makes her feel like a longtime pal who is sitting next to you telling you one hell of a story.

Suzan Saxman started seeing the spirits of the dead at a very young age. She grew up confused by what she saw, and the circumstances and her mother's utter disapproval did not help. Suzan's childhood was dysfunctional at best and her forays into adulthood also led to some decisions that were not ideal for her, though they would teach her a lot.

The Reluctant Psychic details Suzan's life through memories of her childhood and adulthood, with snippets of the psychic readings she's done over the years. I thought the bouncing back and forth would throw me off, but it never did. I actually couldn't put the book down, though even I wondered about the validity of one subject in particular involving an actor from a show I watched in my early childhood, but there's really no way to ever know with any certainty.
