Villere House by Leslie Fear & C.D. Hussey
The last thing college senior Lottie Boyd expected while on spring break in New Orleans was having strange, yet vivid dreams of a 19th century young widow, desperately trying to save her dying little girl. When doctors are unable to do more, the beautiful woman in Lottie’s dreams is forced to go beyond her beliefs for one last attempt.
Compelled to find answers, Lottie is drawn toward the historic Villere House of Voodoo, where she meets the owner, Xavier Villere. She is attracted to his intriguing creole good looks, but his skepticism of his family’s century-old link to Voodoo and the occult keep pushing her away. It isn’t until Xavier begins experiencing unexplainable events from his own past that he begins to understand why he must help Lottie with hers.
Note: Villere House is adult romance and not suitable for readers under 18.
I grabbed Villere House because my go to fellow book loving friend said you must read this and when she says that I know I have to follow her instructions. She has yet to let me down.
The first thing I noticed was the cover. Love love love so much! Add in New Orleans (bucket list!) and voodoo and I was in.
I loved this book so much. The story line was fast paced, went from past to present and back smoothly, had tons of suspense, a bit of heat, and some Voodoo that your mama warned you to stay away from. Or was it that his grandmamma told him to stay away from the non-voodoo girl? Read it and you’ll figure out which it was. 🙂
I read this in one sitting, just kept turning the pages to see where we were going.
Loved the characters, except one friend (pretty much the whole book – we aren’t supposed to like her anyway) and one family member (for just a wee bit). Characters from the past were perfectly intertwined with characters in the present. They were all perfect for the parts they played in the story.
The paranormal in this book isn’t quite like any other paranormal book, there’s some twists along the way that make this an exciting and intriguing read.
I loved it so much! I need to buy Bayou Grise and see where that book takes these characters.
5 quick paced, ghostly kind of sort of matchmaking, too much fun stars from me!
