Review: Spider Woman Walk by Melissa Bowersock

Genre: Mystery/Paranormal


“Sam Firecloud is a medium and forays easily into the realm of the metaphysical, yet he still has earthly concerns and worries about the welfare of his almost 90-year-old grandfather, Ben. When he gets a phone call that Ben has had a serious accident, he and Lacey rush to Arizona and the Navajo reservation. They must figure out how to keep Ben safe while maintaining his stubborn independence, but at the same time, a recent unsolved murder of a master weaver in Tuba City has the Navajo weaving community on edge. The heavy responsibility for both problems falls to Sam, and he's not at all sure he has the ability to keep everyone safe.”


“Melissa Bowersock is an eclectic, award-winning author who writes in a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres: paranormal, biography, western, action, romance, fantasy, spiritual, and satire.”

This is the 41st book in this popular series and while I haven’t read even close to all of them, I’ve read several and liked every one I’ve read. They’re typically fast reads with some things you know to expect, probably a murder mystery or at least a mystery involving someone who has died, whether recently or potentially long in the past. Sam Firecloud uses his ability to communicate with the spirits of those who have died, but the spirts need his help with unfinished business before they can truly move on. Sam along with his wife Lacey helping him always makes for a fun and entertaining read that usually has a bit of the paranormal mixed in with a mystery that keeps me guessing as to where things might be going.

However, that’s typically only half the story. There is typically something else going on in Sam and Lacey’s personal life that provides another story thread and, since you can’t read these without liking Sam and Lacey, it’s always interesting to see how they turn out and, in doing so, the reader gets to know Sam and Lacey a bit better. In this book this part involves Sam’s grandfather, Ben, and how to set things up for his remaining time in a way that will work for everyone. Okay, I’m ready for the next book now.
