Adelaide Fontaine is the General Manager of the Darkwater Inn in New Orleans, but she might not be for much longer. Not if her boss has his way. She is-unknowingly-being pursued by two men: Beau, a police officer and longtime family friend, and Dimitri, the son of the hotel's owner, who wants to be a chef rather than follow the management path his father has laid out for him. As if that wasn't complicated enough, life is about to get more complicated when a body is discovered in one of the hotel's rooms ... and the body has links to Adelaide's hidden past. Adelaide, Beau, and Dimitri are all great characters. There is plenty of action, plenty of secrets, and plenty of clues to consider as I wondered who-dun-it. What's most interesting is that finding the culprit wasn't the end of the story-it was almost as though the murder were the vehicle to explore some deeper personal issues ... There are elements of romance, suspense, mystery, plenty of secrets and even a little voodoo. Yes, voodoo in a Christian novel. As one of the characters says, the Bible wouldn't need to warn us against demons and evil if they didn't exist. All in all, an excellent novel, and I'm definitely looking forward to the sequel.
