With the smell of burning wood and bricks lingering in the cool morning breeze, Johnnie Wise left New Orleans while her home was still smoldering. She had just been acquitted of murdering Sharon Trudeau, one of her former stocker brokers who had stolen a substantial amount of her nest egg. Broke with nothing but the clothes on her back and the shoes on her feet, Johnnie heads to East St. Louis to live with her father. But as fate would have it, car trouble along the way, forces her to stop in Jackson, Mississippi, where she meets handsome Paul Masterson, a roughneck evangelistic preacher who falls for her. Johnnie doesn't know that Earl Shamus is having her followed. Private Detective Tony Hatcher is watching her every move and reporting it all back to Earl, who dreams of being a big part of her life again. Will Johnnie give into the trappings of being a kept woman who wants for nothing? Or, will she reject his offer and try to rebuild her fortune the old-fashioned way?

I loved that it picked up right where the last book ended! Yes, I was a little taken aback at first by the narrator but she quickly won me over. I enjoyed the book & the characters. I'm about to start book 7!!!!
Loved it!!!! this was really too much. I listen to the story as soon as I got in the car on my way to work and as soon as I got in the car on my way home from work. Outstanding!!!!
