Why did I love this book?
Midnight Bayou begins with a historical timeline and centres on the reincarnation theme which has always fascinated me. In the story the leading character, Declan Fitzgerald, feels an unexplainable but strong pull towards a dilapidated bayou mansion in New Orleans so much so that he ends up buying the old house. He quits a career he found unfulfilling and leaves his posh life in Boston to restore the old manor to its former glory with sheer devotion. Life at the manor gets creepy though with Declan getting weird dreams, sleepwalking, seeing visions, and hearing voices to name a few. An enthralling paranormal romance by prolific author, Nora Roberts, told in a dual timeline while steeped in an exciting mix of mystery, murder, romance, family secrets, and paranormal visitations.
