Sweet Unrest by Lisa Maxwell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Lucy keeps having the same nightmare. She doesn’t know anyone in the dream, yet when her family moves to New Orleans … the nightmares become more intense. As she discovers clues around her these signs lead her into the dark history of the area and the local Voodoo practices still performed. When Lucy meets Alex she feels as if she has always known him, but there is a part of her brain that keeps screaming something is not right. Can she discover Alex’s secret? How is the New Orleans plantation tied to her nightmares that began in Chicago?
Sweet Unrest is a stand-alone book that has been left open for additional storylines should the author wish. This dark tale is a perfect blend of southern gothic superstitions and modern people with everyday concerns. Readers who enjoyed reading the Beautiful Creatures series will be drawn to the characters and the history of the area. Maxwell has developed the characters fully without spending an exorbitant amount of time with useless trivia. This is a good fantasy read for those who want a different storyline.
