Palm reader Darcy Kumar is cursed. She'll be dead within a year, so why bother with love? After a brush with death she resolves not to squander what little time she has left. So when sexy firefighter Aiden Becker asks her out, she accepts. As long as she doesn't have a child, the curse will end with her demise.

A Kachina healer and the last of his line, Aiden is compelled to pass along his gift to future generations. He doesn't believe in the curse that Darcy thinks will finish her, but he has second thoughts after she has several close calls. He starts suspecting that her near misses aren't accidents at all.

When they enlist the help of a powerful local witch, they learn there are even more sinister forces at work than just a curse. Someone's gunning for Darcy. Will they find out who before it's too late?

First of all, I need to move to Nocturne Falls, what a fun place to live! This book is a fantastic short read. It covers it all in a short amount of time. Romance, intrigue, drama, and near death excitement that will keep you turning the pages and needing to know what will happen next. I fell in love with the characters right away and the only thing that could make this story any better is if it were longer!

This is my first trip to Nocturnal Falls in Wynter Daniel's book The Fortuneteller's Folly. Nocturnal Falls Series, created by Kristen Painter, has started a new universe with guest writers, like Wynter, to bring more new an exciting adventures. Nocturnal Falls, where Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year, being a town mainly inhabited by supernaturals, it is a given. Darcy Kumar, with the supernatural gift of fortunetelling, passed down to her from the female descendants of her family, is also living under a curse. She'll die by the end of her 30th year. With this knowledge she doesn't explore the emotions of falling in love with someone, why enjoy what you will eventually lose and hurt someone in the process. Especially not having any children, so the curse dies with her. That is until she meets Aiden Becker, sexy fireman and Kachina healer. She is drawn to him and he is drawn to her. When Aiden hears of her curse, he believes he can protect her. Yet when accidents keep happening to Darcy, there appear to be other dark forces in the mix. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The connection between Darcy and Aiden is so heartfelt and they interlock so well. Her co-workers and other town's people add to this feel good book. I highly recommend it and I look forward to reading more stories from Nocturnal Falls .

Darcy Kumar is a cursed Palm Reader and has moved to Nocturne Falls (a town of humans & supernaturals). She's attracted to Aiden Reed, who is an EMT and the last of the Kachina Healers. Because of the curse she doesn't want to get involved with him and have him hurt. However, Aiden isn't giving up so easily! Loved this story which has mystery, suspense, romance and a twist I wasn't expecting!! I'm a fan of this author and I love all of her books! Why no voting buttons?

This is a short story full of suspense and romance. We have a town that is full of paranormal beings and that is why Darcy chose to move there. She has one issue however someone is trying to kill her. Enter one very determined EMT who is also a healer one of the last of his kind. Darcy tries to keep herself at a distance from him and he makes that pretty hard. Read the story and find out who was the problem child in this really fun to read short story.

This was the best book. I swear, I kept having to remind myself that Kristen wasn't the author of it! It is so much like her writing and fits so perfectly into the world. I want more of this author! If you like Kristen's Nocturne Falls Universe, this will be right up your ally. The characters were so great. And I didn't guess who the bad guy was. I loved seeing Alice. We even got a short scene with Roxy. I just can't put into words how great this book is. I don't want to spoil anything so I'll let you find out for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed.
