Book Review: The Curse of Misty Wayfair

Thea Reed vowed to find her mother one day after being left at an orphanage. As a grown woman, she finds herself in Pleasant Valley, Wisconsin in 1908. She uses her skills as a photographer to gain access to a local mental asylum, as she assists Simeon Coyle. She never expected her personal quest to reawaken the legend of Misty Wayfair, a murdered woman who allegedly haunts the area.

A century later, Heidi receives a troubling letter from her mother—who is battling dementia. She travels to Pleasant Valley in search of her own questions to her identity. When she sees a ghostly woman around the asylum, the legend of Misty Wayfair returns.

This was the first book I read by Jamie Jo Wright, but if all her books are like The Curse of Misty Wayfair it won’t be the last.

Wright seamlessly weaves the story of Thea and Heidi together through the legend of Misty Wayfair. She keeps you wanting to turn the page and discover what happens next, before tying it all together.  I must admit there were some surprises I never expected or saw coming.  This is a book you will not be able to put down once you get started.

If you enjoy cozy mysteries or suspense stories, I highly recommend The Curse of Misty Wayfair.

**I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
