The Curse of Misty Wayfair Reviews
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 of romantic suspense in Christian Fiction. They are truly unique! The romance is subtle, but it is believable, ending in a way that you know that Happily Ever After will happen after that last page. The suspense is filled ...more

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 admit to a bit of anxiety as I read along because the intrigue is of mountainous proportions but I simply couldn’t put the book down.
It has taken me over a week to process my thoughts about the story and the most revelat ...more
Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.
A Goodreads friend recommended this book and I read the blurb, decided it looked fascinating and requested it. Part Gothic, spooky, broody and just plain fascinating. Since I generally read romantic-suspense and romance, "The Curse of Misty Wayfair" is a whole different animal to what I'm used to. The two different time periods and characters make for an unusual plot that just ...more
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 thrillingly different from most anything else I typically read. And the other part is that Wright is just one good writer. I cannot say which heroine I liked more--both are compelling, sympathetic, misunderstood, searching ...more
Ms. Wright has expertly crafted this brilliant story! She seamlessly weaves the past and present of this dual time-line tale. Her attention to detail will have you cautiously looking out your windows and checking your locks.
Ms. Wright has a remarkable ability to convey spiritual truths that will challenge you to go deeper in your own walk. These nuggets of truth will stay with you long after you have finished the book.
Jaime Jo Wright is an author not to miss! I look forward to reading more of h ...more
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 really drive the story...which is a deep one. The author writes a spectacular novel to bring forth several wonderful Biblical truths. It’s one of those novels that I don’t think one read fully gives you everything.

~~Jaime Jo Wright's most powerful work yet~~
The Curse of Misty Wayfair is another incredible timeslip novel jumping between the stories of Thea, a postmortem photographer in 1908, and Heidi, the family black sheep coming to visit her mother who's in the last stages of dementia. As the two attempt to settle in to life in Pleasant Valley, Wisconsin, they both begin seeing the specter of a woman who haunts the asylum at the edge of the woods, and learn the story of Misty Wayfair.
In with the thrilli ...more
