Overview

Tanzy Hightower is not crazy. At least that’s what she tells herself. She also tells herself that the shadows in the woods aren’t living, murderous beings. Only one of these things can be true.

On the third anniversary of her father’s death, Tanzy revisits the woods and the shadows that took him. She quickly realizes they now have their sights set on her. Neither Tanzy nor life as she knows it escapes them unchanged.

Two strangers seem too willing to help her navigate her new reality: Vanessa Andrews, a doctor’s trophy wife with a southern drawl and a history Tanzy can appreciate, and Lucas, a quiet, scarred man with timing that borders on either perfect or suspect. But Tanzy has secrets of her own. Desperate for answers and revenge, Tanzy must put her faith in their hands as her past comes calling, and the shadows close in.

Will her choices shed light on the shadows of her past, or will they bring forth the darkness within her?

I don't normally read paranormal but I was excited to get my hands on this one. I love books with horses. Usually when I read a novel, my main focus is on the characters, writing style and plot, but then there are times when the language stands out just as much. The best of both worlds. When I read the first paragraph of Moonlit, I knew that I was going to lose myself not only in the story but in the language as well:    "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! And the best part, the story continues :)

The cover made me choose this book. It is so beautiful. I love the horses. Wildwood, the horse farm in Shenandoah Valley, made me think of Bonanza. Does that date me? I was amazed by everything in this book. I loved it. It took me places that I haven’t been before and didn’t see coming. It was riveting from beginning to end. I can hardly believe this is Jadie Jones’ debut novel. This novel has everything and more that you would want in a paranormal story. It was very well written and the characters come alive on the pages. Watch out for the twists and turns and be careful of who you trust. Even after being warned, Tanzy takes her nightly ride on Hopewell. When someone tells you don’t go in the woods, then don’t. It is not going to end well. I always laugh when I come across this example in the books I read. Don’t open the door. Don’t go down in the basement………. I was crushed when I realized I wouldn’t find out what happened to Tanzy until the next book. I hope Jadie Jones is a fast writer because I can hardly wait to get my hands on Book II.

Tanzy has lost her father and has trouble with her mother. Her passion is horses and a midnight run turns her life around. After recovering from her fall she starts having visions and seeing symbols that other people don’t. She is befriended by Vanessa who takes a shining to her and starts to answer Tanzy’s questions. But the more she learns, the more questions she has. The question is if Tanzy is going to get her answers before something happens to her. This was a really good book. I really liked how reincarnation played into the story. The best part was all the twists that you will run into while you read. Any questions you have will be answered at the end but it was great trying to figure out what everyone was up to. You clearly can’t trust anyone. I also like how important the horses were. It has been a while since I have read a book that really focuses on horses and it was a refreshing change. This is a great story and a fantastic start to the series. I can’t wait to see what happens next in Windswept. I received Moonlit for free from WOW – Women on Writing in exchange for an honest review.

A beautifully written paranormal fantasy! The saying that 'You can't judge a book by its cover' never rang as true for me as it did with this book. While the cover is stunning, it made me think this was a book solely about horses. Since I'm not an avid horse-lover, initially I didn't think this was the book for me. But then I read the back cover and I was hooked. And after reading the story, the cover makes so much more sense to me. So I tell all of you nay-sayers (nay - get it?)READ.THIS.BOOK. Seriously, it made it to my 'favorites' shelf, which is a pretty hard thing to do. This is book one in a three book series still in progress. Book two will be out mid-2014, and I believe book three will be out later in 2014, maybe early 2015. Tanzy Hightower lives, breathes and dreams horses. She has worked on a horse farm most of her life, along with her father. She knows without being told not to venture past the tree line, because strange things lurk out there. The horses know it, Tanzy knows it, but it is never spoken of. Then a horrible accident happens to someone she loves and Tanzy feels the guilt and remorse for many years to come. But it's not until something happens to Tanzy that the strange shapes in the forest become real, and Tanzy's life takes on a very different twist. New friends come into her life, but can she trust them? Why do they act like they've known her forever, and how do they have information about her past? The horses are portrayed as loyal, majestic and highly intuitive (not like the kind who just randomly throw you off their back without provocation or warning, but I digress). Author Jadie Jones has a very poetic lilt to her writing. It is at once spiritual and beautiful, and she easily makes you see in your mind's eye the terrain, the characters and the scenes as they unfold. Remember this is not a stand-alone book, so while there are unanswered questions at the end of book one, most of the ones introduced in the beginning of the story are explained; setting up a very nice little backdrop for book two. I recommend this book for readers 15+.

This was just an okay read for me.  Though I love the fact that it had a bit to do with horses and I love horses.  It took quite a bit of time to really get the story going, but I stayed with it and finished the book.   I did get a tad confused throughout the middle and the ending left me with more questions than answers.  Not a horrible read and I would read the second installment just to see where the story goes, but not one of my favorite or best reads.

From the very beginning I was hooked. Could not put it down. The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat the throughout the entire book. Cannot wait for the next book to see where Jadie Jones is going to take us on Tanzy's journey!
