Flora Reviews… Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Haunted on Bourbon Street by Deanna Chase. The first book in her bestselling paranormal series, Jade Calhoun.
…So what’s this book about?
Haunted on Bourbon Street is the first book in the Jade Calhoun series. It’s a unique tale of romance and the different types of relationships we surround ourselves in. It’s full of colourful characters, action and plenty of mystery.
Jade Calhoun has a secret, she is an empath. She moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she’s expecting her life to get interesting but what she isn’t expecting is becoming best friends with Pyper, an exotic dancer, sharing her apartment with a powerful poltergeist and falling in love with her sexy landlord, Kane. Life can be a roller-coaster ride and Jade is certainly experiencing the emotional highs and lows in this ghost story!!
…So, what did I like about it?
I enjoyed Ms Chase’s writing style in this story. It was contemporary, easy to read and she wrote the characters with depth. Each having their own history and a multitude of emotions that added complex layers to this story. At times throughout, I laughed, I cried and I actually blushed at some of the steamy sex scenes! This story does have a few plot twists and surprises. Although I had realised one of the story’s mysteries, the pace still kept me engaged. I kept turning the pages right up until the end.
…So, ummm, was there anything I disliked about it?
This is the first book in a series and I haven’t read any others yet. However I did feel, at times, that a couple of the characters where brought into this book to make them easier to introduce later in the series.
…So, basically what I’m saying is…
I couldn’t put this book down! Haunted on Bourbon Street is a romance novel but with a paranormal twist. Therefore if you like reading modern love stories with a new age backdrop amidst ghosts, a sprinkling of Wiccans and some mysteries to solve, then give this book a try.
