I am a huge fan of Joyce and Jim Lavene and all their various series. Well, at least the ones I’m familiar with anyway.
A Haunting Dream is part of the MIssing Pieces series and is set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In this series, Dae O’Donnell has a gift for finding lost things. Dae is also the mayor of the small town of Duck. She’s also used to being the only psychic around.
That last part changes when her neighbor’s ex shows up. Ann is a trained FBI agent and psychic (who had a bit of a breakdown) and wants her man back.
If that wasn’t enough, Dae stumbles upon a dead body. And this body is asking for her help—something that’s never happened to the mayor before.
Not enough small-town, real-life, stress for ya? There’s a mayoral election coming up and Dae has to defend her office.
I’m a fan of the series because the Lavene’s have a way of making their characters and circumstances work. I’ve been to the Outer Banks and can imagine a town like Duck hidden there. I know people like the townsfolk they describe. I like the way Dae just wants to be accepted.
This is an easy read…perfect for a day at the beach!
