When Misty Dawn, a former Hollywood Psychic to the Stars, moves into an old craftsman house, she encounters the former owner, the recently deceased Hollywood set designer, Wilson Thorne.

Wilson is unaware of his circumstances, and when Misty explains the particulars of his limbo state, and how he might help himself if he helps her, he's not at all happy. That is until young actress Zoey Chamberlain comes to Misty's door for help.

Zoey has recently purchased The Pink Mansion, a historic Hollywood Hills home, and believes it's haunted. But when Misty arrives to search the house, it's not a ghost she finds, but a dead body.

The police are quick to suspect Zoey of murdering her best friend. Zoey maintains her innocence and fears her friend's death may have been a result of the ghost...and a long-time family curse.

Together Misty and Wilson must untangle the secrets of The Pink Mansion or submit to the powers of the family curse.

Dollycas’s Thoughts This new series from Nancy Cole Silverman is off to an excellent start. Psychic Misty Dawn has foretold many events for the Hollywood elite, but she is now at a crossroads in her life, broke and living in her VW van with her cat. When her client Denise Thorne comes up with a win-win for both of them it is hard to refuse. Misty can move into her deceased brother’s house until she decides what to do with it as long as Denise can receive readings whenever she wants. Misty excepts but quickly realizes she got a little more than she bargained for. Denise’s brother Wilson is still occupying the house, well at least his ghost is. Unsure as to why he hasn’t moved on, Misty explains his limbo status and tells him if they work together she may be able to help him crossover. His services are needed almost immediately when Zoey Chamberlain, a young actress and a descendent of Hollywood royalty comes knocking on the door. She has purchased “The Pink Mansion” down the street from Wilson’s house. She believes the mansion is haunted and wants Misty’s help. As Misty arrives to check the place out she sees the police coming in and out of the mansion. A dead body has been found in the backyard. The deceased worked as Zoey’s body double and amidst Zoey’s cries of innocence, the police have named her as their top suspect. Misty decides with Wilson’s help she can solve the case by finding the real killer and saving her new friend Zoey. She also explains his help may curry favor to help him move forward to his quest to get to the great beyond. ___ Over the years I have become more comfortable reading stories like this which I call paranormal light. Thank you, Joyce Lavene! An author, we lost much too soon. What I mean is that for the most part the ghosts are friendly and stay within the cozy mystery norms. In this story, we encounter more than one ghost, and like the characters still living the author takes the time to develop them so well. I really like Misty. She is comfortable in her own skin and she knows her job and its limits. The relationship that evolves between her and Wilson is genuine, a friendship really blooms between them. Some of their dialogues are laugh out loud funny and eventually they start work together so well. I have to say the way Wilson evolves over the course of the story was extraordinary and delightful to read. Denise is pushy and she and her brother clearly never saw eye to eye. Zoey is a very interesting character. Her life continues to pull her in different directions and the world’s eyes are watching everything she does. The settings in this story, both Wilson’s craftsman and Zoey’s Pink Mansion really caught my interest. The Pink Mansion has a history and is what imagine would be perfect for a movie star. Wilson was a set designer and his home fits him and is filled with treasures he has accumulated. It is easy for Misty to move comfortably through both places and even make herself at home at Wilson’s. The mystery uncovers so much and I don’t want to spoil anything so I am just going to say I loved every little twist the author puts into this story. I was totally consumed by it. The ending was priceless. Well-written and plotted with great characters. I found the story to be very entertaining and I am anxious to see where Ms. Cole Silverman takes this series and the characters next.

I’ve never thought about if I believe in Psychics or not…but this book gives readers something to think about! -Green Gables Book Reviews The House on Hallowed Ground -A Misty Dawn Mystery-by Nancy Cole Silverman is a new book being released soon. Pre-orders are available (see below) I love the cover of this book! Nancy Cole Silverman made a great choice here because the cover is a lot different from most books on the market right now and I think this cover will really stand out in a bookstore among other new releases! Misty Dawn is a former Psychic to the Stars who is starting fresh is a new home, an old Craftsman style. She never would have thought that when she moved in, the previous owner would still be there! Recently deceased Wilson Thorne, formerly a set designer in Hollywood, is still occupying the home…even though he passed away recently. Wilson doesn’t seem to know he is stuck here, in a limbo state and is not very happy about this, when Misty explains it to him. Soon, Misty meets a local actress, named Zoey, who knocks on her door looking for help. Wilson listens in when he sees it is Zoey, and Misty and Wilson are both very interested when she says she thinks her new home, The Pink Mansion, is haunted. When Misty (and Wilson) go to check it out the next morning, there is a crowd gathered. There has been a murder and Zoey’s best friend is dead! The Police are crossing suspects off of their list and Misty is looking at the other side of things in the home-she soon finds it really is haunted and Wilson makes a new friend. While Zoey is dealing with issues in her personal life, she is relieved to find out that the sounds she heard were real, and she isn’t going crazy! Things in Zoey’s life jump to a new level as secrets are revealed and flowers appear at her door. When Zoey is arrested for murder, even more secrets are revealed and Zoey learns who she can trust and who she cannot. Is Zoey in danger from whoever killed her friend?

I really enjoyed this mystery. This is the first book in the Misty Dawn Series. Misty Dawn is a psychic to the stars who is down on her luck. A client who is a realtor offers her use of her deceased brother's house to live in until she decides what to do with it. Since she is living in her van she moves in. The house however is not empty, the original owner, Wilson, is still living there as a ghost. A starlet knocks on her door asking her to help with her haunted house. When she visits the next day there are ghosts but also a dead body in the pool. She sets out to help the ghosts and solve the murder. I liked the relationships and the Hollywood setting. Wilson and Misty work really well together. I also like it that Misty works with the police. The mystery was good and there were enough suspects. I am looking for word to reading more in this series. I can't wait to see what trouble Wilson and Misty get into. Enjoy
