About the Book:
While on an early morning patrol in the swamps of Whiskey Bayou, Louisiana wildlife agent Gentry Broussard spots a man leaving the home of elderly Eva Savoie—a man who bears a startling resemblance to his brother, whom Gentry thought he had killed during a drug raid three years earlier. Shaken, the agent enters Eva’s cabin and makes a bloody discovery: the old woman has been brutally murdered.
With no jurisdiction over the case, he’s forced to leave the investigation to the local sheriff, until Eva’s beautiful heir, Celestine, receives a series of gruesome threats. As Gentry’s involvement deepens and more victims turn up, can he untangle the secrets behind Eva’s murder and protect Celestine from the same fate? Or will an old family curse finally have its way?

A Curse and a Blessing
In comes Agent Gentry to the rescue, when she starts finding disturbing messages to leave or die. He feels the loneliness and sense of losing oneself in the song that he hears Ceelie singing as he approaches her late aunt’s cabin. When the sinister shadows throw them together, the fight to stay alive as they follow the clues and their hearts to a bittersweet end had my heart in my throat.
The more I read, the more I could feel the steamy heat that builds between Gentry and Ceelie. I actually found myself biting my nails and turning page after page as I follow the story that kept me sucked in following them around alligator infested rivers, through hurricane stricken towns, and the rural Louisiana back roads. I loved the strength they found to love and bravery to let down the walls to their guarded hearts. Well done, Susannah. I will be reading more of her work.
