Misty Dawn, a former Hollywood psychic to the stars, knows the dark and sometimes glamorous streets of Los Angeles are full of secrets, broken promises, and dashed hopes.

When a young woman comes to her door because she’s lost her engagement ring and is afraid to tell her fiancé (the son of one of the world’s biggest cosmetics empires), Misty senses it’s no accident.

Together Misty Dawn and her psychic charge, Wilson Thorne, must not only sneak behind the walls of the Conroy Estate (aka The House That Vanity Built), but go beyond the veil where the luminaries have laid plans to seek revenge.

Murder, lust, and a quest for a fountain of youth are hidden inside a family’s secret, one that threatens to upend the young woman’s life, and quite possibly, Misty’s as well.





The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Misty is a psychic who used to cater to Hollywood.  She has a shade that she is in charge of, Wilson.  He is not really a ghost, but he is a spirit that only she can see.   She is trying to help him navigate the spirit world in the hopes that eventually he will move on.  While doing that, she has a murder to solve.  She is going to have to use all of her psychic abilities to figure out this mystery.  

The writing style flows smoothly and it defines the characters very clearly by their actions and words.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning.  The mystery had a lot of twists and turns and was not easily solved.  There were plenty of suspects to consider and clues to sift through and I did not figure it out until it was revealed at the end.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  If you like your cozy with a paranormal twist, give this book a try.

 I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Henery Press , and Edelweiss, which I greatly appreciate.



Nancy Cole Silverman spent nearly twenty-five in Los Angeles Talk Radio, beginning her career on the talent side as one for the first female voices on the air, and later on the business side, where she retired as one of two female general managers in the nation’s second-largest radio market. After a successful career in the radio industry, Silverman turned to writing fiction. Her crime-focused novels and short stories have attracted readers throughout America. Her Carol Childs Mysteries series (Henery Press) feature a single-mom whose “day job” as a reporter at a busy Los Angeles radio station often leads to long nights as a crime-solver. Her most recent series with Misty Dawn is centered on an aging Hollywood Psychic to the Stars, who supplements her day to day activities as a consultant to LAPD and the FBI. Silverman lives in Los Angeles with her husband and a thoroughly pampered standard poodle.
