Haunted on Bourbon Street | [Deanna Chase]

Haunted on Bourbon Street

When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn't count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord. Being an empath has never been easy on Jade's relationships. It's no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it's up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her.

    "Hauntingly interesting"

    An easy-listening book with some nice characters and a few ghosts. Jade rents an apartment that turns out to be haunted. She's also drawn to the landlord. The main characters were very likeable and a pretty good love story developing. Parts of it dragged with more action towards the end.

    The narrator was about half and half on the voices. Some of the women seemed to have baby voices. The male voices were so-so.

    I can't write a short review to save myself! Authors put a lot of effort in their books, so a 3 line review can't do justice to my thoughts

    "Haunted... just not quite there"

    It's never fair coming down off a truly fabulous read onto a new author and new series. Leaping from well developed characters and an intimate knowledge of the story-verse into unfamiliar territory is always going to take some time, and often make you feel disappointed in the new novel so I'm trying to pull my punch on this review a little knowing that I'm ja bit jaded (no pun intended!) at this point in time.

    I feel that as a first novel this series has potential, and I will probably get the next book in the series when I have a spare credit lying around, to see if my suspicions are correct. And also to see if my apathy for the book is just "new series" syndrome.

    In a market saturated with vampires, a novel with ghosts at least adds a different plethora of paranormal jargon to learn. Unfortunately I didn't really engage with many of the characters much, the lead was the weakest of them all - I felt that if the novel had been from the point of view of her new best friend it might have had more umph.

    The narrator, Traci Odom, was mostly quite good, although some of her pronunciations bothered and distracted me a bit. (why do I do that? Fixate on a word they say wrong/weird, and then miss half the next sentence???). I also struggled with some of her more manly vocalisations, but overall enjoyed her performance and portrayal of the majority of the characters.

    In summary, if you're looking for a light-hearted low-calorie read, this fits the bill. However, if you're looking for action and a gripping story line to drag you from book to book as fast as you can buy and download them, then perhaps try Kim Harrison (Rachel Morgan series - witch/vampire/fairy/demons), Jeaniene Frost (Cat Crawfield series - vampire/vampire hunter), Diana Rowland (Kara Gillian series - demons) or Kevin Hearne (Atticus O'Sullivan Iron Druid series - druid/faerie/witch/vampire/werewolf) for other options in the paranormal genre.

    Story
    "Slow start, weak story, character potential"
    What did you like best about Haunted on Bourbon Street? What did you like least?

    I like New Orleans as a setting, although little was mentioned about it as atmosphere. The characters seemed likable. The story was weak and had wholes. There were thoughts or directions started but not followed through. The later part of the story had some action and drama.


    What could Deanna Chase have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have elaborated in the beginning about the characters past or personality and why they are who they are. She could have had one character have some self deprecating humor. Bee, Cat, Eaan all could have been developed more.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Traci Odom?

    Maybe. I think the more she writes she will get better. The basics are there.


    Did Haunted on Bourbon Street inspire you to do anything?

    To seek out some stories based in New Orleans and ghost stories.


    Any additional comments?

    I did like the ability angle. Cain was a good believable character.

    "Haunted on Bourbon Street - Not bad, not great"

    I had a hard time getting through this and nearly gave up, but that's hard for me to do. There was just too much straining of my credulity and impatience with sex scenes to get over with so the story could go on. I finally finished reading the book on my kindle so I could get through the story faster and skip pages. If you like ghost stories, don't have a skeptical mind and get turned on by sexy scenes, you'll enjoy this book more than I did.

    "A liitle disappointed"

    The premise is good but it was a little slow. The story is middle of the road in tempo. I never felt for any of the characters.

    "Not for me"

    I really don't have any right to give this a review because I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters I really tried but I'm not shore if its the narrator telling a bad story or a bad story tripping up a narrator to be honest there both clunky and boring ,I wont say go nuts but maybe your threshold is better than mine,I say listen to the sample and make up your own mind.
