Kindling the Moon by Jenn Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Arcadia Bell is a bar owner with a big secret that is about to surface. Seven years ago her parents were accused of murdering three leaders of magical orders. So all three faked their deaths and went into hiding. They split up to be less noticeable and Arcadia forged a life for herself. Now her parents have been spotted and The Luxe Order (one of the more powerful orders) is trying to find them. Arcadia wants to help prove their innocence so goes about finding the demon that was known to be at the murders seven years ago.
A trusted friend directs her to a enigmatic man living with his son in a nearby town. Lon Butler is a famous photographer raising his son and collecting rare occult books. He also is an empath, something that is a little disturbing to Arcadia since she has things to hide and strong feelings for Lon.
Lon agrees to help do research to find the demon and as they embark on the search for the demon, the story takes you through several twists and turns with outcomes that surprise you.
Loved the characters in the story, Lon's son Jupe is wonderful and hope to see much more of him in future stories.
Loved this book, I believed in the characters, the relationships and the story. I am looking forward to the next in the series.
