Compulsion by Martina Boone


CompulsionThree 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.

Compulsion is a paranormal story set on a South Carolina plantation.  But as soon as I saw this cover I couldn’t help but think of Fall.  For my Book Look I decided to create a Fall outfit. I love the sweater I found because the color is great and it looks so comfortable.  The cheetah scarf adds some fun to the look.  And I love the boots and purse (maybe some day I can afford to buy one).  This is definitely a look I would wear.  I also can’t wait to read this book and find out the details about the curse!

  1. Absolutely love this! It’s beautiful and it goes so well with the book! I’m doing the VA Teen ’14 Festival on October 16th, and I think I’m going to try to put something like this together in your honor! : ) That scarf and the Vuitton purse give it the same great touch of a bit of magic/paranormal that I was going for with Compulsion. Love it!

    Thanks for featuring Compulsion!
