Rating and Recommendation
Rating: 5 teacups
Recommended: Yes, Yes, Yes
Book Club Worthy: Paranormal or Romance
Is Nina’s love enough help for Deacon to break the generations old curse on his house or does she meet her demise on island?
Okay Harper fans, this is not Jane and the crew. However, if you give Nina, Deacon and their cohorts a chance I think you can have a great time. There is the usual comradery, madcap adventure and of course paranormal goings on. The characters are easy to like and wish you could be there to help. I did enjoy the book and had a good plot and did engage me from the start. As stated earlier it is a standalone that shows she does not need a series to write a darn good book. I recommend it highly. I know there was a little room left in my heart for Nina, Deacon, and their friends along with Half-Moon Hallow residents. Therefore, new characters, standalone, new place, and no vampires, I will still give it a 5 star rating.
You will like this book if you can overlook that Harper did not write a book for one of her series, like paranormal without vampires, like paranormal ghosts, like some mystery, suspense, romance, and a touch of chills.
*I would like to thank Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books via NetGALLEY for giving me an unreleased copy for an honest and fair review.
* If you buy this book through the above link money is generated, however, donated to the non-profit American Association of University Women (AAUW).
AAUW works empowering women, since 1881, standing up for causes in the areas of educational, social, economic and political issues especially important to women. Marie Currie was one of the first beneficiaries of the group that would become AAUW receiving monetary help to attend college. I am a proud member and believe that the profit from books seems a fitting donation.
