If you’re anything like me and you loved gothics, and especially southern gothics, mystery, laughs, spookiness, a touch of romance, and of course, a great heroine to take you through the story……you’ll love Sara Booth Delaney and her cohorts. Especially Jitty, Sarah Booth's great, great grandmother's nanny, who regulary haunts the Delaney ancestral plantation and is dead, no pun intended, and set on Sarah Booth getting married and having babies especially since Sarah Booth especially since Sarah Booth is already over thirty! especially since Sarah Booth is already over thirty!
I can’t introduce you to this novel any better than The Sunday Press (UK) did……
“Fast-paced, highly cinematic…the perfect read for those for whom Dan Brown was the start but not the finish.”
He's back........Valentin St. Cyr, that dark, sensitive, secretive, irresistible super sleuth Crole detective. New Orleans of yesteryear will come alive like history unfolding before you as Valentin moves through Storyville in an attempt to solve a series of gruesome murders. Jass, voodoo, and murder....New Orleans, a top notch detective and a fantastic story. What more could you want?
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. Dashingly handsome men and beautiful evil women...what fun! This review is a bit different, because this book has been made into a movie countless times, so I am going to review both…..and then let you in on a bit of Trivia Truth which many of you may never have heard before.
If you like really riveting mysteries, female protagonists willing to risk it all, the South as a beautiful and haunting background, a story that will grip you between good and evil, you will love this book.
Love Vampires? Riverboats? Supernatural Feuds? Romance? All the dark and moody touches that can go with a historical setting? A leading character who is part hero, part villain? Fevre Dream has it all!
This is the first of a series, and a great series it is if you like strong female lead characters, lots of mystery and a terrific story.
Psychological horror combined with vivid atmosphere, rich twists and turns, compelling characters, a gripping story reminiscent of the old Gothics of yesteryear…but so much better!
Do you like history? Mystery? Jazz? Murder? Dirty Politics? And one heck of a tantalizing mystery story? Then you will fall in love with this novel.
