Publisher's Summary

From a unique new talent comes a fast-paced debut, introducing a heroine whose dark visions bring to light secrets that will heal or destroy those around her...

When New York journalist and recently bereaved mother Charlotte "Charlie" Cates begins to experience vivid dreams about children she's sure that she's lost her mind. Yet these are not the nightmares of a grieving parent, she soon realizes. They are messages and warnings that will help Charlie and the children she sees, if only she can make sense of them.

After a little boy in a boat appears in Charlie's dreams asking for her help, Charlie finds herself entangled in a thirty-year-old missing-child case that has never ceased to haunt Louisiana's prestigious Deveau family. Armed with an invitation to Evangeline, the family's sprawling estate, Charlie heads south, where new friendships and an unlikely romance bring healing. But as she uncovers long-buried secrets of love, money, betrayal, and murder, the facts begin to implicate those she most wants to trust--and her visions reveal an evil closer than she could've imagined.

Southern Gothic mystery debut that combines literary suspense and romance with a mystical twist, The Gates of Evangeline is a story that readers of Gillian Flynn, Kate Atkinson, and Alice Sebold won't be able to put down.

    "Predictable"

    This story is so predictable I thought I'd finished the story and when I looked I still had an hour and a half! And yes it ended just as I thought.

    "I enjoyed listening to this audiobook."

    I enjoyed this book because you actually did not figure out who did what until the very end you had some kind of idea and thoughts about it but you didn't say oh he did it or she did it all the twist interns were very good thank you.

    "Dumb. just dumb."

    The beginning was ok. But even allowing for the supernatural components, the story line was ridiculously farfetched and silly.

    "Great Characters, Original Story"

    The answer to the main mystery was not a big surprise since there was a slow build with many hints leading to the main conclusion. But there were many side stories that made the listening experience worth the time. I consider this book to be a keeper.
