Hacienda Moon by KaSonndra Leigh - Review

Title: Hacienda Moon
Author: KaSonndra Leigh
Series: The Path Seekers Book 1
Publisher: The TriGate Group
Publication Date: July 27, 2012

Synopsis: Sometimes the Darkest Soul Can Have the Brightest Heart of All...

Love, obsession, and betrayal, the most powerful human emotions, are spun together in this gothic novel. 

Tandie Harrison is a path seeker, a medicine woman that can travel through time by channeling other spirits. After losing her psychic visions in a car accident, 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 mystical worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected.

My Thoughts: This book was another first for me. I don't know that I have read a book that deals primarily with the spirit world. I really enjoyed reading Hacienda Moon. It pulled me in and kept me wanting more the entire time. 

I really enjoyed the characters. Tandie was a broken person who was trying to find herself again. She was a perfect protagonist in this book. KaSonndra Leigh did an amazing job writing Tandie. Leigh also left me wondering sometimes if Tandie was truly the person causing all the problems. 

Eric was searching for answers. When he meets Tandie and they are pulled to each other he seems like a very go with the flow kind of guy. Yes he is there for a reason, but he puts Tandie first so many times. I liked his character a lot.

I also really liked all the spirits. Some were crazy and mean, others wanted to help Tandie, and almost all of them wanted Tandie's help. 

The setting was great, too. The creaky old Chelby Rose made the perfect setting for all those spirits to roam. Bolivia sounds creepy and exciting. The kind of place people would go to try and see ghosts. I think many people will truly enjoy Hacienda Moon.


I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
