"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".
This synopsis by the extraordinarily talented KaSonndra Leigh truly does not express the wondrous tale woven into this story of love, loss and betrayal.
Following an horrific event in her childhood Tandie is left with psychic visions which she uses in her role as a police medium, however her job and life are thrown into turmoil following her divorce and the death of her daughter in a car accident.
We follow Tandie as she returns to start a new life near her home town, and for some explicit reason is drawn to an alluring plantation house 'Chelby Rose'. We are introduced to the owner of Chelby Rose, and to the contractor hired to restore her to her former glory. But everything is not as it seems, as strange things start occurring that lead Tandie to believe that she is pivotal to breaking a century old curse that sees the worlds of both the living and the dead collide.
I was drawn into this story from the very first page.
KaSonndra Leigh has mastered the art of story telling and has written a story that is so totally spellbinding as it develops around the richness of her characters and their interaction.
You truly feel like you are part of the story and will find yourself drawn into their lives as they all combine into a climactic ending that will leave you breathless.
I can't wait to see where Tandie's life as a Pathseeker takes her next.
