Misty Dawn, a former Hollywood psychic to the stars, knows the dark and sometimes glamorous streets of Los Angeles are full of secrets, broken promises, and dashed hopes.
When a young woman comes to her door because she’s lost her engagement ring and is afraid to tell her fiancé (the son of one of the world’s biggest cosmetics empires), Misty senses it’s no accident.
Together Misty Dawn and her psychic charge, Wilson Thorne, must not only sneak behind the walls of the Conroy Estate (aka The House That Vanity Built), but go beyond the veil where the luminaries have laid plans to seek revenge.
Murder, lust, and a quest for a fountain of youth are hidden inside a family’s secret, one that threatens to upend the young woman’s life, and quite possibly, Misty’s as well.

The House That Vanity Built is book two in the Misty Dawn series and whilst this is a good stand alone read I do advise you read book to get a better understanding on the relationship dynamics between her and Wilson.
Bride to be Amy visits Misty whose engagement ring has gone missing before her wedding, in the hopes that she is able to help find it. Misty feels there is more to it and when Amy’s husband to be Jared dies she knows it wasn’t an accident and tries to get to the bottom of the truth.
With the help of Wilson who is a shade the story begins to unravel, and we discover that Amy was set up to marry Jared but he wasn’t banking on actually falling in love with her! There are a few twists and turns in this book but i felt it was more serious and less funny than book one (the humour is what I loved the most in the first book) and with more than a handful of suspects from the bride to be herself to even Jared’s father I was busy piecing it all together right along side Misty and I was fully invested in solving this murder with her.
This was another great book in the series and I can wait to see what our psychic and shade get into to next!
