This story begins with rich character backgrounds and old family drama.  The author treats the reader to wonderful descriptions that automatically transport the reader to Louisiana. Then the tensions between Nora and Claire set off the fireworks right away!  The conflict between daughter and disapproving mother with their sarcastic wit is both humorous and entertaining. Jean Marc is the strong silent type, mysterious with a  sense of adventure and a darker side.  The history between he and Nora really plays a part in the sizzling connection between them.  When two characters such as these are this compelling, it sets the wheels in motion for a riveting romance! The story  takes a thrilling turn when all hell breaks loose, changing the story from a light contemporary to a mystery/thriller that readers of any genre can enjoy!
