What she doesn't expect though, is the fact that Wilson Thorne, who was a movie set designer, would still be living in the home. Sort of. Since he's a ghost and all. And he doesn't want to share his space with Misty or especially her cat, since he's allergic. However, Misty isn't afraid of ghosts, having dealt with them in the past, and she's not going anywhere. So eventually they come to an uneasy truce, although Wilson isn't happy about it.
Then a young actress shows up at Misty's door; a young woman named Zoey - and Wilson already knows who she is. Zoey is convinced her new home - nicknamed the Pink Mansion - is haunted, and she wants Misty to find out why the ghost is there. When Misty is waffling about helping Zoey, Wilson convinces her to do so, and agrees to help, too. Once Misty knows she's won in her battle with Wilson, she agrees.
But when a murder occurs, Misty soon finds herself involved with the history of the house and more than she's looking for, and none of it is good. Now she needs to help Zoey, help the police find a killer, and help Wilson find out why he's still stuck in the human world...
This is the first book in a new series, and a very good start. If anyone has read the Carol Childs series by the author, they will have remembered Misty Dawn as having shown up on Carol's doorstep one day, much as Zoey showed up on hers. But then, Misty wasn't asking for help, she was there to help Carol (mostly against Carol's will), and help her get into a good place in her life.
Now Misty has her own beginning, and quite a delightful one. I do love stories about ghosts (as long as they're not poltergeists), and I love it especially when they interact with the living. In this, Ms. Silverman does not disappoint.
The story is written very well, and with plenty of things occurring around Misty, and it's wonderful to watch her 'read' the people around her to get to the core of it all. Her ability to see and hear things others aren't aware of is the main charm of the story. It draws you into the action, and the developing friendship between Misty and Wilson is indeed worth reading. Ms. Silverman has created an entertaining cast of characters that bring the story to life, and I find myself eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. Highly recommended.
