Author: Martina Boone
The Heirs of Watson Island
Expected: October 28th, 2014
Description from GoodReads:
Three plantations. Two wishes. One ancient curse.
All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt’s South Carolina plantation instead--a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.
Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family's twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.
Why I Want It:
Compulsion was one of those books that you've heard so much about from blogger friends. All I've heard is great things, which of course makes me want it even more. Then there's also the fact that I get to meet Martina the day after YALLFest. Either way, after all the intense fangirling and the chance at meeting a author, I'm also excited because of the summery. Ghosts and curses are two of my favourite things.
