Moon Bayou by J.R. Rain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Moon Bayou is a paranormal fantasy featuring vampires, werewolves and the voodoo culture around New Orleans. This book follows the already popular Samantha Moon series. Samantha is a Private Investigator and lives in California, but she’s been asked to investigate the disappearance of Wendy Lo. Missing for six months, her parents are desperate for any news.
Samantha is an unusual investigator in that she is a vampire, with mind reading skills, plus she can go out in the sunlight, due to some fancy rings she wears. However New Orleans has an uncomfortable atmosphere which she can’t put her finger on. More curious is the warning she receives from a friend about a blood price on her head, set in 1860. A ridiculous statement since Sam wasn’t around then, or is it?
When she’s captured by the Tête de Mort Krewe and help comes from friends she doesn’t remember, Sam has more questions than answers. It looks like Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau is the one she must turn to, but contacting her on the night of their most powerful ceremony has life changing results.
I loved this story, I have read the first Samantha Moon book , which reminds me I need to catch up with this series. The storyline was fast and full of surprises. I wanted to howl like a werewolf when the book ended, I wanted more!

Another for my list! I have the first few Samantha Moon books but haven’t got round to reading them yet.
Must try and check the whole series out. Thanks, Rosie!
Great review. Sounds like a lot is included in this book, but sounds intriguing too.

Now, you have me howling to read the series! Thanks, Rosie.
Ah, know you love a good vampire.
Beautiful cover – I’m a sucker for books set in New Orleans. Adding to the towering TBR pile!
New Orleans doe make a good setting for paranormal/ horror/ thriller with all its Voodoo connections.
