Book Tour & Review: Residue by Laury Falter

NOTE: I received a complimentary copy of Residue in return for my honest review. This does not in any way reflect upon my review. All thoughts/opinions of this novel are 100% my own.

When Jocelyn Weatherford is whisked away from a preparatory academy in upstate New York to live with her extended family in New Orleans, she is unprepared to encounter the dangers awaiting her. Yet even as she is thrust into an unfamiliar world of witches and voodoo magic, the greatest threat of all may be the boy she has fallen for. While handsome and charming, he is also a Caldwell... a member of the family the Weatherford's have been feuding with for centuries. As their forbidden love grows it becomes the volatile spark that forever changes their world and everyone in it.

 My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

  My Review:  My very first thought on this book was, "Oh look! Romeo & Juliet have come to Hogwarts". I mean seriously? Feuding families? Forbidden Romances? Set inside a "secret society" of voodoo and magic? Immediately, I was worried that this would become one of those books that I would feel "forced" to finish.

Thankfully, I was so WRONG! Her characters are well developed, and its obvious that she has put a lot of thought into the world she has created. I LOVED the interaction between Jameson & Jocelyn, from their first meeting to the way they are able to overlook their family's longstanding feud and not only find love, but find a way to work together for the betterment of the people who live around them.

The ending of book one definitely set the stage for Book two, I expect the second installment to have more action and more back-story and I am looking forward to reading it and finding out what happens next! You can Purchase your very own copy of Reside from: Amanzon, Barnes & Nobel or Goodreads
