Publisher's Summary

Detective Sept Savoie is a cop who thinks making a relationship work is harder than catching a serial killer, but her current case may prove her wrong. 

Six months after Hurricane Katrina has devastated most of New Orleans, detective Sept Savoie is battling the nightmare of everything the storm has taken from her when a brutalized body turns up behind one of New Orleans's most famous restaurants, which is run by Keegan Blanchard. The more Sept works through the clues, the more they point to Keegan, which makes the relationship growing between them anything but love at first sight. The first death is only the beginning, though, as the miles of deserted neighborhoods Katrina left behind provide the perfect stage for murder. 

A Sept Savoie Romantic Thriller.

Second Book I’ve read of Ali’s

I read Blue Skies and loved it so immediately went searching for another book by the same author. I am really enjoying these books, I would love to find another military one like Blue Skies but this one was really good as well.

Interesting read . . .

Having lived through Katrina and it's aftermath, this book brought back a lot of dark memories. I know this was a work of fiction, but the author did a good job in painting the city during a dark time. It was easy for me to visualize the places I loved the characters. I loved the name Sept, being the seventh and last child in my own family. The book made me laugh and had me on the edge of my seat. Very entertaining!

Love it

I love this book and the narration of this book. Paige McKinney is one of my favorite narrators and she brings this book to life for me. I have listened to this book at least 6 times this year. And as soon as the next book comes out I will be having a mini marathon. Can't wait to here more about Sept and Keegan and Mike. And whatever new mystery Sept has to solve.

Great storyline and narrator.

Love the plot twist. What surprised me was the narrator. I'm not a fan of hers, but she did such a great job with all the voices that it made the story more enjoyable.

Good narration brings a great story to life!

This complex story is well performed, allowing immersion in the lives of Sept Savoie and Keegan Blanchard as they come to terms with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina while trying to solve the mystery surrounding the murders that are ravaging New Orleans. The supporting characters are well developed providing a colourful picture of the world inhabited by the Sept and Keegan.While the relationship develops quickly the series of events that lead up to it are engaging and make you root for them!

As a whole this audio book was extremely enjoyable and definitely worth multiple listens!
