    Review of The Gypsy’s Warning, Book Two, The Shape-Shifter’s Wife Series Radmanovich takes readers on a journey through time back to California during the Gold Rush era. The adventure blends bewitchment and Wild West reality. The spot-on historical setting offers insight to the realities of the environment at the time, and of the suffering. At the same time the story provides romance and magic. The heroine is outspoken when women were supposed to be meek, and her locks stick out because they are blazing red. An independent woman journeys through time and experiences the best and the worst of people during the Gold Rush. She learns a lot about herself as well. Life threw a lot at her. A gypsy warns her about yet another journey, one filled with “great peril.”
