I was not sure I would like this book, it started out rather depressing. Poor girl meets rich guy in New Orleans and he treats her badly, very like the Scrapbook mysteries by Laura Childs. But this poor girl has more spine and sets herself up in business after her divorce and does very well. Husband comes back and is a changed man, really! There are side plots and interesting characters. I like mysteries set in New Orleans, lots of atmosphere. I ended up enjoying it more than I expected, and look forward to reading the next in the series, A Bad Hair Day.
