Thursday, April 12th


After the deaths of her parents and a nasty break up with her fiancé, Manon Benoit, a psychiatrist specializing in Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome Disorder (PTSD), makes the move from New York to New Orleans, carrying with her not only her grief but also the mystery of her famous mother’s hidden past. One evening while dancing Argentine tango,she encounters a handsome Creole FBI Agent, Andy St. Julien, a New Orleans native recently returned to the city to investigate an oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico.

Andy’s suspicions about Manon’s real ties to New Orleans (Is she merely French or something else?), an Australian psychic’s predictions, the interference of old lovers, unexpected twists in the FBI’s case, and the heady atmosphere of New Orleans herself all conspire to make the lovers’ journey a rocky one and threaten to expose the past that Manon’s mother sought to keep hidden.

This book is available in paperback ($17.99).
