Wonderful book about New Orleans past and present. Lots of stuff I didn't realize. You can tell the author did her research at the end of the book by what she wrote on HOW she wrote the book. The Julia Street mentioned is a real street in New Orleans which made this book come even more to life. Highly recommended!
A beautifully crafted romance mystery that weaves inventively between the past and present. Midnight on Julia Street was hard to put down, so make sure you have plenty of time to read when you pick it up!
