Review Moonlight by: Jadie Jones Book Tour

Title: Moonlit
Author: Jadie Jones
Publisher: WiDo Publishing
Pages: 210
Format: ebook
Source: I am a Reader and Not a Writer Book Tour

Description:

Eighteen-year-old Tanzy Hightower knows horses, has grown up with them on Wildwood Farm. She also knows not to venture beyond the trees that line the pasture. Things happen out there that cannot be explained. Or undone. Worse, no one but she and the horses can see what lurks in the shadows of the woods.

When a moonlit ride turns into a terrifying chase, Tanzy is left to question everything, from the freak accident that killed her father to the very blood in her veins. Broken and confused, she turns to Lucas, a scarred, beautiful stranger, and to Vanessa, a charming new friend who has everything Tanzy doesn’t.

But why do they seem to know more about her than she knows herself?

My Thoughts: 

This book starts out Tanzy who has a bad relationship with her mother after her father's death.  She spends her time working on the Wildwood Farm where strange things are going on, and they seem to be happening around Tanzy then she gets a phone call from a "him" that is worried about her.  What does he want or care that she stay safe on her birthday?

This book was OMG amazing when Tanzy gets in a freak horse accident she meets Vanessa and thinks Vanessa is a saving grace spending time with the injured Tanzy at the hospital, but no one in this book is what they seem and there are so many secrets, that only surface at the end when Tanzy goes on a Origin journey to find out what her past life is about.

So many people all out for Tanzy and those who want to protect her go about it the wrong way.  Definitely a great book for those who love paranormal with a hint of romance, so many interesting and dark characters.  I also loved the horse themed with this book.  I can't wait to see what Jadie Jones does with Tanzy next, the cliffhanger with Tanzy's mother was awesome!  A great book everyone would love!

    Praise "Virginia's trees look like they're burning. Most of them blaze crimson or gold, but some still have a chokehold on their green. I wish they'd give it up already. Leaves are more beautiful when they're dying." And so Moonlit begins. From here the story rolls from one twist to another with many vivid characters whose motives are hard to predict. I found myself being suspicious of everyone, wanting to tell Tanzy to be very careful. The deeper I fell into the plot, the more questions kept rising to the surface. But not to worry, all of my questions were answered. Appropriate for all ages, if you love paranormal fantasy mixed with suspense, mystery and other-worldly romance, you'll love this novel! ~Author Julie Ford   Prologue The first anniversary of my father’s death was even harder on my mother. Back then, I thought she was haunted most by what she didn’t know. I refused to blame her when she raged above me on our staircase that night, drunk and sad and angry. When she made me promise I’d never ride again. When she hurled a half-full bottle of vodka at my face and it exploded on the wooden stairs at my feet. I hadn’t tried to get out of the way. She had just missed. I wanted to tell her that knowledge was no solace, that what you know can burn inside you until there’s nothing left but guilt and ash. I also wanted to protect her from losing the only piece of him she had left. So I didn’t say a word.
