Reeshana is a Miracle Mixer, someone from another dimension who throws miracles. She is known to be one of the best, but something happens while throwing her latest miracle. She falls into the mix, and becomes someone else. Merri Dwyer has been plagued by odd dreams all her life, and lately she has been dreaming about the same people and can actually feel their experiences. When she takes a business trip to Phoenix to scout out a new location for a bookstore things get weird as someone starts following her, so she cuts her trip short and heads home to Denver, but the problem follows her. It seems as if someone wants her dead, and will go to any lengths to make it happen. Who would want Merri dead, and how does Reeshana fit into the puzzle?
An intricately woven plot with plenty of twists and turns makes this book a real page turner. Ms. Nash has the ability to bring not only her characters to life, but with her attention to detail she easily brings the story itself to life. Her attention to detail and the way she describes the action packed scenes really made me feel as if I was watching a motion picture. She really kept me guessing as to who the bad guys actually were. Often when a story involves the past as well as the present, it becomes hard to follow, but not so with "The Miracle Mixer." I found myself becoming quite interested in the past, but was also anxious to know what was taking place with Merri. I really felt as if Merri was a great lead character. She had such a wry sense of humor, was brave and really cared about her friends. While the author provides a satisfying ending, she also left me anxious for another book with these characters. Overall, if you enjoy a contemporary fiction that also gives glimpses of the past, which weaves together mystery, intrigue, a splash of romance, as well as drama and then throws in a sci-fi twist that takes on the age old war of good versus evil, then "The Miracle Mixer" is a must read.
