Southern Arcana 1
Pages: 230, ebook
Jackson Holt makes a decent living as a private investigator in New Orleans, home of one of the largest underground supernatural populations in the United States. He and his partners have never met a case they couldn’t crack…until a local bar owner asks him to do a little digging on her newest hire.
New Orleans is the fourth destination in as many months for Mackenzie Brooks, a woman on the run from a deranged stalker. After all, any man who shows up on her doorstep claiming to be her destined lover has more than a few screws loose. But crazy doesn’t explain why he always finds her no matter how far she runs.
When her well-meaning boss puts a PI on her case, Mackenzie comes face to face with the incredible truth: magic is real, and whatever spell has kept her hidden and separate from the paranormal world is rapidly deteriorating.
With time running out, she has no choice but to trust Jackson as he struggles to uncover the truth of her past-and her destiny.
I have heard good things about these books so I wanted to give them a go. As for the genre, I am a bit unsure again because it felt like a mix.
Mackenize was a nice heroine, she is running from a crazy stalker who talks about magic and shapeshifting. She is strong, and resourceful. The hero of the book is Jackson Holt, a private investigator who helps her out. And Jack is all nice and sweet. Him I certainly liked. There is a nice romance building up between them too, and some hot passion.
The world is interesting and at once there is a bunch of characters to meet, and I do want to meet them all again. I want HEAs for all them. Nick from the bar, someone I shall not mention, Nick’s sister. Many things to look forward to.
It was a good story about crazy stalker guy and more things that …no I shall not mention that either, but there is a plan behind it all. Danger and excitement.
Recommendation and final thoughts:
A good novel, and it’s biggest strength were its characters because I wanted more about them. Passion, romance and danger is always a nice combo.
Reason for reading:
I had heard good things, and there was the GC I won from Lea, so yay ebook
