Mini Review: Rising Moon by Lori Handeland

Rising Moon by Lori Handeland

Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks (Jan 2, 2007)
Length: 352 pages
Format: Paperback

Summary from Amazon:
Denizens of The Big Easy know its steamy nights can hide any number of sins and secrets. Private-eye Anne Lockhart is counting on it. Her life has been in a holding pattern ever since her sister Katie disappeared without a trace…but when a clue leads Anne to a jazz club in the French Quarter, everything changes. Rising Moon's proprietor, John Rodolfo, is mysterious in his own right, a gifted musician who reaches deep into Anne's soul and whose mere presence taps into desires she can't afford to indulge...

By going undercover at the Rising Moon, Anne can get close to people who know what goes on after dark--people like John, whose nocturnal disappearances are more than a little suspicious. But unlocking John's secrets is harder than Anne had anticipated. What's far too easy is surrendering to him. And now someone--or something--is stalking the innocent and the guilty, and waiting for Anne's next move...

Yes, somehow I ended up reading the sixth book in the Nightcreature series. I didn't know it wasn't the first one but it was still good and I don't think I missed much but I will be reading the first in the series soon. 

I really liked this book. It was interesting and made you want more. From the beginning, I was interested in knowing what was going on behind the scenes. I loved that we got to slowly learn everything as Anne pieced things together. I thought the random pieces of voodoo was interesting, how she would find a random bag of herbs in her pillow. I really liked John. He was mysterious and sexy, even though he ended up be something else. I found it really interesting that the "good guy" turned into the "bad guy" for a bit. 
4.5/5 stars.
