The Curse of Misty Wayfair


Jaime Jo Wright.

Publication date:





384 pages


Jaime Jo writes very interesting and unusual suspenseful novels. This one is a dualtime story in which ghostly, weird things are happening in and around an asylum. In modern times, Heidi is visiting her sister and comes across an old photo of a woman whom she, Heidi, closely resembles. She also sees a woman at odd times who others don’t see, so they don’t believe her and talk about the ghost of Misty Wayfair. In the past, Thea, a budding photographer, helps an older man in his photo work at the fairly recently opened asylum, and realizes odd things are going on. And what is it about this Misty Wayfair, who seems to be blamed for the deaths in a certain family? It’s a convoluted but very satisfactory story. This author is new to me (I heard her speak at Baker Book House) and I am enjoying her books very much!
