This book was the real page turner. Once I started reading and I couldn't stop reading until I reached the end of the book.

It is set in Louisiana. It is sexy, gritty very suspenseful romantic read. You won't be disappointed!

Great fast paced read. Book three of the Bayou series. Visit Stella Cameron's web site for a complete list of Bayou series books. I believe there are nine in this series now. I have read four of these books but not in order and do not have a problem following along with the characters.

Vivian Patin has become the target of a killer just a few weeks after inheriting a huge estate in Bayou Teche, LA. Unfortunately, the local law enforcement is not only inept, but also unwilling to put much time and effort into finding the killer because the lead detective HATES Deputy Sheriff Spike Devol from the next parish, who happens to be very good friends with Vivian.

So Vivian and her mother "hire" Spike to do a bit of sleuthing outside of his regular Sheriff duties since he's also a licensed private investigator. Spike is reluctant at first because his friendship with Vivian quickly turns into a blazing attraction that neither can resist.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I liked the premise behind this story. It had a good plot. However, I thought it had too many characters for the reader to keep up with. By the time the identity of the killer was revealed, I had to flip back through the book to remember who the guy was and what his relationship was to the rest of the characters.

David Patin died in a mysterious fire that destroyed his popular New Orleans restaurant mere weeks after inheriting Rosebank from his brother, Guy. Rosebank had once been a magnificent plantation on the banks of Bayou Teche. Guy had decorated Rosebank with hundreds of monkeys and pineapples.
When David's wife, Charlotte, and daughter, Vivian, learned that the family finances were poor, they decided to make Rosebank prosper. With Vivian's degree in hotel management and charlotte's restaurant expertise, they would slowly turn Rosebank into a resort hotel.

Their dream began to crumble when the family lawyer was murdered on Rosebank's grounds. He had been coming with big news for Charlotte and Vivian only to be killed within walking distance of the estate. The envelope containing the wonderful news had vanished, leaving the Patins clueless as to what it had contained.

Unsatisfied with the laughable investigation by the local police (Errol Bonine), Vivian turned to Spike Devol, the deputy sheriff of a nearby town. Not only was Spike known to be smart and wily, not to mention sexy, but he had also been present when Vivian stumbled upon the first body (her lawyer). Spike and Errol are totally different and tempers toward each other run hot. However, Spike's growing attraction to Vivian will not let him back off from investigating on his own.
