As New Orleans recovers from Hurricane Katrina, Detective Sept Savoie recovers from a gunshot wound with the help of her new love Keegan Blanchard. As the city returns to normal, so does the crime rate. Sept’s first case back on the job is a strangely ritualistic killing, which quickly escalates into serial murder. As the bodies start to pile up, the last thing Sept needs is the city’s newest celebrity crime writer, Nicole Voles, poking into the case looking for information for a new bestseller, especially when Nicole appears just as interested in Keegan as she is in murder.

Is it wishful thinking to hope for another one after this. I love all the main characters in these books and how AV blends in Cain Casey as well. Looking forward to another one of those too. Iam a fan for life.

It's a good story that does justice to the first book. I'm glad we got to know Jazz better. There were a few times I wanted to shake Emory but I say that if it wasn't a good story I wouldn't care. Loved it.

Emmett McCabe never expected to see Sydney Stevens - a woman with whom she'd shared a brief, incendiary connection before it all went up in flames - again. Luckily, ascending the cutthroat ladder of a high-pressure surgery residency to reach the top spot makes it easy to ignore what's missing in her life. Then Sydney reappears after nearly five years. Emmett is barely over her shock when she discovers Sydney is her new competition for the coveted chief's position everyone, including Emmett, expects will be hers.

I wasn't sure at first if I would like it but I was very pleasantly surprised with the way the story unfolded. It wasn't the military angle I was expecting but a sweet love story among harrowing situations. Loved it.

I was hooked from the first chapter. It flowed so smooth, that it was over before I realized how long I'd been listening. The only bad thing about this book is that its the last Gerri Hill book to read, for me. Now I have to wait until she writes another book. Ughhh.

Success for Marc Ryder means riding out eight seconds on the back of an angry rodeo bull and avoiding getting roped into a relationship with the pretty women she meets along the way. She's exactly the type of wild and reckless person artist Bridgette LeRoy has avoided since the senseless death of her brother. But circumstances throw them together, and Bridgette is drawn into a tumultuous ride of attraction, passion, and denial.

I ama big fan of this author and I loved this series but I wish I had read this instead of listening to the audio. The narrator sounded...drunk? Not sure and I'm not one to complain normally but it took something away from the overall enjoyment. I will definitely keep reading her books, in fact just started another one but will be cautious of the narrator in the future.
