Blurb from Goodreads: Love, obsession, and betrayal, the most powerful human emotions, are spun together in this gothic novel. Tandie Harrison is a police medium who has just suffered a divorce after losing both her psychic visions and her daughter in a car accident. When she leaves New York City to start a new life near her hometown, she moves into the alluring plantation house, Chelby Rose, and falls for its charismatic caretaker, Eric Fontalvo. Their burgeoning affair ignites a centuries old curse, ensnaring them in a web of danger, deceit, and intrigue. Soon Tandie learns that in placid Bolivia, the worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected.
Hacienda Moon is a seductive tale of one woman’s journey to confront the demons of her past and find the courage to face her future. It is a mesmerizing novel that explores the deepest depths of human nature, and the characters will hold and haunt you long after you have read the final chapter.
Review: So first things first, I would like to thank KaSonndra for giving me the honor of reading and reviewing her newest and utterly amazing book. I am totally honored that i got a chance to review this as it's a fantastic read. Now on to the actual review. Hacienda Moon has everything that a novel needs to be great. From loss, to horrifying murders, to breathtaking love story, and lastly to some rather crazy and scary ghost, the way KaSonndra incorporated all these elements into the novel created a mesmerizing tale. I loved the main character Tandie. I couldn't believe how strong she was even after everything that happened to her. She didn't let herself breakdown even of she really wanted to. She was a great character. Tandie's emotions and really all the emotions in the book were so strong and well written that I could feel them coming of the pages in waves.
Not only do we have a great heroine but we have a plot that will render you speechless. Most of the events in the novel, with the exception of like two, surprised me. I would find myself predicting one thing happening and something completely different would happen out of nowhere. The plot also has just the right amount of spooky elements. It wasn't scary and it wasn't the type of book that causes you to be scared by every sound for a week after you finished it. No this book has just the right amount of creepy elements to keep you on your edge .
I loved every aspect of this book. The plot was different and unpredictable. The love story between Eric and Tandie was beautiful. It wasn't rushed. It was just perfect and well they were perfect for each other, and why wouldn't they be of they are the center of a two hundred and sixty year old curse. I felt like I was a part of the book.
I would recommend this book for everyone. It's awesome in every way. We have mystery, love story, and creepy, evil , some nice and some well I guess some very confused ghosts haunting Chelby Rose plantation.
