Moon Bayou by J.R. Rain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is certainly a departure for the Samantha Moon world. Sure, there's still Judge Judy and the other fun pop culture references, but this series is taking Samantha way out of her comfort zone (and mine!).
The story starts innocently enough. She's accepted a case that takes her to New Orleans in search of someone's missing daughter. There's the typical "meet with the police" scene, some schmoozing, a little investigating, and then everything seems to go wrong all at once. What began as a short investigative story spins into a time travel mystery leaving us to wonder how in the hell this will all work itself out for Sam.
Thrown back into the past (complete with historical dress, ugh), Sam is now tasked with finding her way back, not messing up her future, and dealing with infinite amounts of time paradoxes (paradoxi?). I'm not particularly a fan of historical fiction, but managed to pull my way through on the hope that we'd be back in the present day in no time. This book does not exactly resolve things in the end, leaving me either desperate for the next book or sad that there are still loose ends. I can't decide. Either way, if you're a fan of the series, this is obviously a must read.
