Review: An Unhappy Medium is book four in the Family Fortune Mystery series. This book was a bit of a challenge for me at first. It started out slow and I wasn't sure where Dawn was taking the story, but I was really glad that I stuck with it, because by the time I finished the story, I really loved it.
This story is a bit different when you compare it to other cozy mysteries.. Yes there's a murder and that murder that points fingers at Clyde's sister Grace, who is home in Crystal Haven for the first time in 10 + years.
The murder involves Grace's ex-boyfriend from her high school days, who ends up dead at the Zombie Fun Run. That's the primary mystery in the story, but Grace has some problems following her and her husband Paul from New York. Those problems make up the other part of the story. The results definitely bring about a lot of changes for Clyde and her boyfriend, Mac.
The first part of the story was the lead up to the Zombie Fun Run and that part was sluggish. Once Derek was found in the woods, things started to take off and got much more exciting.
I really love the paranormal aspect of this series, and how Clyde was coming into her own with her talents.
This was a was a good installment in this series, I can't wait to see what happens to Clyde, Mac, Seth and Sophie in the next book.
