When Misty Dawn, a former Hollywood Psychic to the Stars, moves into an old craftsman house, she encounters the former owner, the recently deceased Hollywood set designer, Wilson Thorne.

Wilson is unaware of his circumstances, and when Misty explains the particulars of his limbo state, and how he might help himself if he helps her, he’s not at all happy. That is until young actress Zoey Chamberlain comes to Misty’s door for help.

Zoey has recently purchased The Pink Mansion, a historic Hollywood Hills home, and believes it’s haunted. But when Misty arrives to search the house, it’s not a ghost she finds, but a dead body.

The police are quick to suspect Zoey of murdering her best friend. Zoey maintains her innocence and fears her friend’s death may have been a result of the ghost...and a long-time family curse.

Together Misty and Wilson must untangle the secrets of The Pink Mansion or submit to the powers of the family curse.

My Thoughts

The House on Hallowed Ground by Nancy Cole Silverman is the debut novel in A Misty Dawn Mystery series.  She was once a psychic to the stars who did the talk show circuit (Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin) and consulted with the FBI.  Now, she is down on her luck and living in her VW bus with her cat, Bossypants.  When Denise offers Misty her deceased brother’s home in exchange for readings, she is quick to move in.  What Misty did not know is that her brother’s spirit, Wilson Thorne still inhabits the home.  Misty is visited by actress, Zoey who believes her home, the Pink Mansion is haunted.  Before Misty can address the ghost situation, Zoey’s friend is murdered, and Zoey is at the top of the suspect list.  Misty with Wilson’s help begins searching for answers.  Misty Dawn is a unique character and I like that she is an older protagonist.  She was not going to let Wilson scare her out of her new home.  Misty showed Wilson that she had no intention of departing.  Wilson was a set designer who managed to collect numerous unique pieces over the years.  He may have left his estate to his sister, but Wilson does not like Denise in his home or touching his belongings.  Denise is a dramatic woman who believes Hugh Jackman is her soul mate.  The character’s antics will have you laughing.  The murder mystery provides multiple suspects and misdirection.  You will wonder if the ghost killed Zoey’s best friend or did a human commit the deed.   I enjoyed the paranormal aspects with the ghosts and a family curse.  The ending was sweet and left me smiling.  The House on Hallowed Ground is a lighthearted paranormal cozy mystery with sensitive specters, a zealous admirer, an acclaimed actress, polluted possessions, and a seasoned spiritualist. 
The House on Hallowed Ground is available at Amazon (Amazon UK), B&N, and Kobo.  To win a signed copy of The House on Hallowed Ground (U.S. Only), click here or enter via the Rafflecopter form below.  Good Luck!  I appreciate you stopping by today.  I will return tomorrow to feature The Quiet Ones by Theresa Talbot.  It is the third novel in The Oonagh O'Neil series. Take care and Happy Reading!
