BOOK REVIEW- MOON DANCE
Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very longtime for a vampire.
In Moon Dance, the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn't exactly what he appears to be; after all, there's a reason why he survived five shots to the head. LINK
I really liked this book, I liked the humor and the supernatural parts in it too. Samantha didn't deserve what happened to her but she was doing the best she could with her situation and her family. She didn't lose any of her skills when it came to investigating but she was able to add some more supernatural ones. Also a few unexpected friends as well. Her client Kingsley was one of them and as was Detective Sherbet became someone who began to trust her skills but questioned a lot of other things about her. And he was pretty astute. I liked both of those people and she sure had some interesting and often funny conversations with them both. I remember laughing more than once while I was reading it. Samantha had a kick-ass attitude that came out her mouth and her fists at times. She was also loving and kind hearted and adored her children. This story had several different mysteries going on but they were good ones.
This book ended with many things completed but a few not that lead into another book. So, cliffhanger? Both Yes and No. If you are happy with how it ended then, "No". If you want to find out who her computer buddy, Fang is, and if Kingsley becomes more to Samantha then "Yes" somewhat a cliffhanger. Personally I want to see Samantha take back the upper hand from her husband. I could understand his fears but he failed to even see Samantha as a human woman with feelings. He was just disgusted by her, and he didn't seem to be all that warm and fuzzy towards his own kids either. He sure liked being in control though. The two men that are in Samantha's life, both seem to understand her pretty well. I've got my suspicions on who Fang is, wonder if I'm right?
