This is the first entry in a series revolving around the lives of the denizens of Louisiana's Bayou country. Alligator conservationist Coco LeBlanc discovers the body of the man who's recently served her family with an eviction notice and immediately becomes a suspect--along with her beau, Luc, in his murder. Their past history is one of deception--both had relatives in the KKK years ago--and both wonder if they can trust each other.

There's actually some pretty interesting Confederate history contained here, as well as (of course!) a romance between old loves. It was nice to see that Coco's Cajun relatives who practice voodoo were not treated as outcasts as well, although she doesn't condone their practices. Coco's younger sister, Tara, came across as annoying in a couple of scenes. However, the real star of the book is the bayou itself.

Alligater conservationalist Coco LeBlanc knew real fear when she found a body in the clutches of her beloved beasts. Fear turned to horror when she saw that it had been one of the Trahan clan-and he'd been shot in the back.

Her ex-boyfriend, Luc Trahan, had dumped Coco two years ago when she refused to give up her family's centuries old voodoo traditions, and he didn't know about her new found faith. Now, as they and their families become prime suspects in the grisly crime, they'll have to work together to clear their names before the Cajun killer strikes again."

This was my first exposure to this author, and my first exposure to a Christian based style of writing. It was not too overpowerful, just a nice touch and change from the
"norm" in fictional mysteries. Being from Louisiana, it was nice to see some of the interesting culture interwoven throughout the story. Very fast read!
