Overview

The mayor of Duck, North Carolina, Dae O’Donnell, is a woman with a gift for finding lost things. Sometimes it leads her to lost keys or earrings—and sometimes it leads her to murder…



When her boyfriend Kevin’s ex-fiancée Ann arrives in Duck looking for a second chance, Dae suddenly finds herself facing certain heartache. And while her romantic life is in shambles, she’s even more concerned by the sudden change in her gift. After touching a medallion owned by a local named Chuck Sparks, Dae is shocked when her vision reveals his murder—and a cry for help.



Dae doesn’t know what to make of the dead man’s plea to “Help her,” until she has another vision about a kidnapped girl—Chuck’s daughter, Betsy. With a child missing, the FBI steps in to take over the case. But Dae can’t ignore her visions of Betsy, or the fact that Kevin’s psychic ex-fiancée might be the only person who can help find her…

    This was a very good read from beginning to that inquisitive conclusion and I can’t wait to see where that takes Dae and her friends. In the latest happenings in Duck, NC, Dae’s touch of a medallion leads to the discovery of a dead body, a missing child and the arrival of Kevin’s ex-fiancée that results in an captivating whodunit that was hard to put down. This fast-pace drama had plenty of twists that had me changing directions as to who was doing what to whom and when it was all said and done, this was an enjoyable story with great dialogue lead by a strong and remarkable heroine whose only goal is to do the best for her town. This is the best one yet in this charmingly pleasant series.

    Can you Hear Me???

    A Haunting Dream is the fourth book in the A Missing Pieces Mystery series. Another wonderful addition I might add.

    Life for Dae O'Donnell has been turned upside down with the appearance of Ann Porter in Duck, NC. Ann is Kevin's former FBI partner and had been his fiancee'. Dae is understanding wants to give Kevin time to decide which way he wants to go.

    This came at the time when Dae's neighbor Mac Sweeney asks for her help in finding a gold medallion that he found in a parking lot and that he can't now find. He needs to find it, as there is a reward being offered. When Dae gets a vision where the medallion is, she knows the medallion, as she once found it and returned it to it's owner, Chuck Sparks. A man name Derek is claiming it is his, but when Dae holds the medallion, she gets a vision of Sparks being killed and in the vision Sparks says: save her. Soon, Dae finds Sparks body in ditch. Then in a dream Dae is sure that Sparks' "help her" request is for his daughter that has gone missing.

    The FBI has entered the picture and with Ann being there and having experience locating lost children with her psychic abilities, is asked to help. But she has a feeling the little girl is dead, but Dae doesn't. Dae has a couple customers come to her store, Missing Pieces, and she suspects that they might somehow be involved in the shooting and disappearance of the little girl.

    In addition to another murder in her little community, Dae also has to contend with Randal "Mad Dog" Wilson who is running for mayor against Dae.

    Looking forward to the next book to see if Kevin has reached a decision and to see how the election for mayor turns out.

    I only rated this as a 4 * read because the way the book ends (which if GREAT) the authors are forcing you to buy the next book and that just goes against all my principals! This series is absolutely astounding though! The City of Duck as the most eccentric, unusual characters I’ve ever run in to and they all just highlight the story even more. The book caught my attention from page one and held it until the last page and then I was sorry it ended. I especially enjoyed how more of Kevin’s past life popped up and enhanced the story even more. Well plotted, well written a good read for anyone enjoying mysteries!

    In Lavene¿s paranormal mystery novel, Dae O¿Donnell¿s boyfriend

    In Lavene’s paranormal mystery novel, Dae O’Donnell’s boyfriend Kevin’s ex-fiancée, Ann, arrives unexpectantly in Duck seeking an opportunity to rekindle their romance. With her love life dangling by a thread, Dae suffers another shock when her “gift” changes allowing her to “see” his murder and “hear” his cry for help. Another vision points to the victim’s daughter being kidnapped and the FBI steps in take over the case. But Dae refuses to ignore her visions and is even willing to work with Ann, a strong psychic herself, to bring this lost child home.

    Another fabulous addition to the A Missing Pieces Mystery series that grabbed my attention at page one. A fast-paced paranormal mystery full of amazing characters.
