The House of the Setting Son - A Review & Giveaway


The Third Misty Dawn Mystery

A call in the night leads psychic Misty Dawn to the Crowne Theater. The once magnificent Art Deco structure is hosting its final run before demolition, but there are more problems than the building's fading glory. Not only has the leading lady gone missing, but so has the resident ghost. While Wilson, Misty's spirit guide, looks into the otherworldly aspects of the case, including the spirit that appears to have attached itself to the touring company and is wreaking havoc, Misty starts the search for the missing young woman. What she finds, however, is a dead body.

I love this series and was thrilled to see it based around a theatre. Coming from a theatrical background and having once played Eliza Doolittle I loved the references to My Fair Lady as well as the importance of the theatre's ghost light.  I really appreciate how Misty Dawn works a case, including the fact that she works with the police. Her charm, fortitude, and calm demeanor makes me like her even more. I also get a kick out of how she plays the little old lady card.
This multifaceted mystery was intriguing and red herrings and unsavory characters kept me guessing. I love the interplay between Misty and Wilson and I especially loved how Wilson continues to evolve after death. 
THE HOUSE OF THE SETTING SON is a mystery about love, acceptance, and growth. It shows that while things appear to end, they truly just continue in another form. The third Misty Dawn Mystery provides excitement, laughs, and most importantly, a heartfelt ending.

About The House of the Setting Son

Cozy Mystery 3rd in Series 
Independently Published (September 4, 2020)  
Print Length: 213 pages 
When Misty Dawn, the former "Hollywood Psychic to the Stars," receives a phone call in the middle of the night, she knows it can't be good news. Dorine Witherspoon, an actress and former client is in town for the opening of her touring musical and tells Misty the show's leading lady, Cassie Marx, has disappeared and the understudy had to go on for her on Opening Night!
Misty immediately suspects foul play and when she and Wilson, her psychic shade, arrive at the theater the next morning they discover LAPD's Detective Cesar Romero meeting with the cast and crew. Events on both sides of the veil take a dark turn when Romero asks Misty off the case, and Wilson appears out of his depth with ghosts who want nothing to do with him.
Death, close calls, and forces on both sides of the veil threaten to undo Misty and destroy her relationship with Wilson unless she can find Cassie and restore order to the show.
