I’m a fan of Jaime Jo Wright and not every author can write a story in two time periods and pull it off flawlessly. The Curse of Misty Wayfair follows the intertwined stories of Thea Reed and Heidi Lane. Thea is a photographer from the turn of the century who is searching for the truth about why her mother abandoned her. Heidi experiences a similar quest in present time as she tries to find her identity through her roots in Pleasant Valley. Both take the reader on a journey of self-discovery while revealing dark secrets from the past.
The author writes characters you’ll fall in love with. Heidi’s quest to find her true identity resonated with me. I love stories that aren’t superficial and have a deeper, spiritual point. The author weaves a deep and beautiful message through both characters’ struggles. It took me a while to get into the story, but once I did, I was hooked. The suspense and creepy mystery of the hidden secrets of Pleasant Valley kept me reading to the end, but it’s the characters that eventually drew me in to this intriguing story line.
