    This book was absolutely amazing! In typical fashion for this author, this book was a dual timeline mystery where the full story only unfolds once both timeline mysteries are solved. Also, in true Jaime Jo Wright fashion, the mysteries had a serious "creep factor" element in them. I'm ...

    I first discovered Jaime Jo Wright with her debut, The House on Foster Hill and absolutely loved it. So I wait in eager anticipation for her new releases. The Curse of Misty Wayfair is her 3rd book and releases in a couple weeks. Thea and Heidi are 2 completely different characters...

    This is the third book I?ve read by Jaime Jo Wright and in my humble opinion, the best one yet, although they are all great reads! This is a time slip novel that went back and forth from the early 1900s to present day but in the same small town. I was held ?captive? from the v...

    The Curse of Misty Wayfair is a shoo-in for my Top Ten in 2019 already! Wright wove just the right amount of creep factor in this ?ghostly? tale of lies, loves, and the living to keep me glued to the pages. My heart rate stayed elevated pretty much the whole time. Reluctantly, I ad...

    I am grateful to the reviewer who gave something away about the ghosts in this story or I'm not sure I would have picked this book up. It seemed so unlike Ms. Wright's other stories that at first I was hesitant...and really, much of the book kept giving me pause. But in the end it was ...

    Two tales twist together into a story that draws the reader in and won?t let go. The Curse of Misty Wayfair is deliciously thrilling, with a resolution steeped in light and hope. Jaime Jo Wright wraps her writing in a genuine love for people--in all their gifts and challenges--and fo...

    My plain words will not do this book justice. But that is okay, this book is what it is - a work from the heart, and nothing I say will change that. So pick it up :) Something was out of place, and the people of Pleasant Valley seemed to know it. Keeping to themselves, smiling a lit...

    With her third full-length release, Jaime Jo Wright cements herself in the place of must-read eerie suspense authors. Even more impressive, she does it not one, but two time periods! In The Curse of Misty Wayfair, Wright explores the treatment of mental health issues in 1908 as Thea...

    "You are the reason the voices are never heard. . . . . .come . . . come quickly." Two women, separated by time and eternity, yet inexplicably drawn together by a postmortem photograph and a cryptic letter crafted by one whose mind has become crippled beyond recognition. Both are d...

    Emotionally gripping, Jaime Jo Wright delivers a captivating split-time mystery that'll leave you unable to breathe and unwilling to put this book down until the very last page. Ethereal in its ghostly beauty is the mysterious legend of Misty Wayfair, the ghost that beckons for som...

    Jaime Jo Wright's The Curse of Misty Wayfair is this gifted and talented author's third book. From the very first page, I was intrigued. Several pages more, and it gave me the wonderful tingles that a Hitchcock movie causes its viewers to feel. Also, the stark, clarity of characters an...

    Guys, no review that I write can bring justice to how masterful and engaging The Curse of Misty Wayfair by Jaime Jo Wright really is! Seriously, read this one! Perhaps the thing I love the most about Jaime Jo Wright's romantic suspense stories is that they really break the mold ...

    I found The Curse of Misty Wayfair to be spooky and deliciously disturbing! That may seem like a strange thing to say, yet it describes the way I felt compelled to uncover the mysteries of both storylines with each page turn, while also having to limit my reading to the daylight hours ...

    With each stroke of the pen Ms. Wright creates a work of art that draws you into a world of mystery that spans from 1908 to present day. I love the way the dual time line is woven together so intricate that you never miss a beat while reading. I find the subject of mental illness and h...

    I?m just going to start this review by saying I cannot do this book justice. Secondly, in discussing this book, I want to assure you this may be a spooky story, but it is not a ghost story. This is a brilliant read...Thea,Emma, and Heidi are my favorite characters. The characters...

    Jaime Jo Wright's book just keep getting better and better all the time (and they started out as pretty impressive). Right from the first page the story grabbed me, both Thea's and Heidi's. Part of it is the creepy, dark tone that is so prevalent in Wright's stories, something thrillin...

    Every time I start a new Jaime Jo Wright novel, I always think it can't possibly be as good as the last one was, and yet she always proves me wrong. In her most powerful story yet, the reader is treated to a spine chillingly scary timeslip novel that focuses around a mental asylum with...

    You?ve got to wonder about a mind that can produce the thrilling kind of stories Ms. Wright produces, but I just happily devour each and every one. From an abandoned mansion, tragedy at Gossamer Pond or an abandoned insane asylum, each book just gets better and better and better. I ...

    What I Loved: The Curse of Misty Wayfair is quite a blessing for the reader! From the moment I opened the book, I was drawn into Pleasant Valley alongside both heroines. The legendary curse intrigued me as much as the heroines did. And the heroes! Sigh. They were both so real and flawe...

    A ghost had risen up from the album's pages, beckoned to her, and begged to have her story told. This book should come with a warning label: Do Not Read At Night! I mean you are talking an age old curse of Misty Wayfair who is said to haunt the woods that surround an old asylum. J...

    Let me start off by saying, this book had me REELING! Jaime can write a story!! ?? I am one of those people who can spot the bad guy from a mile away. Movies or books, you name it, I instantly feel a little "off" when they make an appearance. It always baffles my mind when an ...

    The Curse of Misty Wayfair by Jaime Jo Wright is phenomenal and profound. If I could give it more stars I would. This is one of my top reads of 2019. Pleasant Valley, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, connects Thea Reed and Heidi Lane across the decades as does the legend of Misty W...
