Moon Bayou

Mother, wife, private investigator, vampire – Sam Moon’s been around the block. Now, unlife brings her to New Orleans to test her mettle against a new kind of lurking evil…

From the author of the Vampire for Hire Series, J.R. Rain, comes a brand new Samantha Moon spin-off story co-written by bestselling author of The Dead Detective and The Department of Magic, Rod Kierkegaard Jr. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 Kim Talks TomesTAG

As a spin off from another series, I was a little skeptical about reading Moon Bayou because I thought I would be lost, but the authors did a great job of filling in the blanks for a new reader. It features Samantha Moon, the detective, along with the backdrop of New Orleans and all it has to offer.

Samantha is a quirky, sarcastic, smart, strong, and kick ass PI.  She is also a single mom and a vampire. Samantha finds something about New Orleans a little off because of the nightlife and dark side she harbors. While investigating the case of a missing girl, she is thrown into the middle of a vampire feud and gets more than she bargained for.

This book set up for a series is very well done. It gripped my attention and didn’t let go until the end. I really like the character of Samantha and have added the original Vampire for Hire series to my TBR list. I’m very curious as to whether both authors will continue writing the series together or if the original author will hand it off to the co-author for the rest of series. Either way, this story was well done and a great set up for more to come!
