The second novel by Mary Zelinsky is a fun detective romp combined with romance and plenty of New Orleans ambiance. Chloe, the black sheep debutante of the Galen family, is cut off by her mother and must see if she can learn to stand on her own feet and possibly find love. The characters are strong, the plot is well crafted. It manages to avoid some of the common romance tropes. At times I found the reminders that the two main characters were falling in love a bit intrusive. Otherwise it was a pleasant cup, best accompanied by beignets.
