 Title: An Unhappy Medium
 Author: Dawn Eastman
 Series: Book 4 A Family Fortune Mystery
 Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
 Format: Paperback
 Source: Received for review from publisher
 Star Rating: 4 out 5 stars
 Reviewed by: Marlene

 Crystal Haven is getting all set up for it's annual Founder's Day celebration, along with this celebration comes with an unlikely addition of a zombie fun run to as part of a fundraiser for the local animal shelter. Clyde although regretting already to be a runner then a zombie is proud her nephew, Seth and long-time friend, Alex has organized this. Although some of the town folk feel it takes away from their traditional festivities, the majority of town decides to move forward with it.

 Everything seems to be coming along nicely until the surprise visit of Clyde's sister, Grace and her husband, Paul decide to come for a visit. Clyde now somewhat worried they are here to take Seth home also, harbors years of estranged feelings towards her sister and wonder why they chose this weekend to come. Once Grace arrives long lost truths and secrets start to bubble to the surface for the Fortune family.

Grace who is gifted with the site of numbers and does very well for herself in New York seems to shun the others talents for tarot readings, seeking lost objects or speaking with animals. She also has secrets of her own that put Clyde and her boyfriend, Mac in a life changing prediciment. All this stemming from the unsavory elements of their life back in New York. That is till Grace's high school sweetheart is found dead after the zombie run and Clyde has to choose to be the bigger sister and help clear her name. Only it is going to be a hard road when all the leads keep pointing back to her sister and she keeps finding herself having to keep one secret or another to herself.

 I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it was fun, fast paced and gave you lots of misgiving leads. It had the right amount of family drama and romance. I love Clyde she is a strong female lead that look for in every story I read. The characters are great, I loved all of them and love to hate some of them. Especially enjoyed Grace's character, she was definitely a love to hate her one. One of those women that thinks she is to good for her own family, their gift but still seems to gain from it. I think she deserved what she has in the end.
