About the Book:
The Darkwater Inn stands tall and proud in the French Quarter, the hub of New Orleans. Bourbon Street is bustling, and General Manager Adelaide Fountaine has her hands full with a hotel at capacity. She, along with everyone else, is shocked when a body is found: a hotel guest stabbed with a kitchen knife.
Detective Beau Savoie, Adelaide’s childhood friend, is on the case. As Beau digs into the victim’s past, he unearths a shocking connection between Adelaide and the murdered guest. Beau is hurt that his friend—the woman he’s quietly loved for years—kept the truth from him. To make matters worse, the stress of the investigation has sent Adelaide right into the comforting arms of her coworker Dimitri. But Beau can’t press Adelaide too hard . . . he’s keeping secrets of his own.
Can Adelaide and Beau afford to hide from the truth with a killer on the loose?
Caroll offers readers a double-dose of excitement- a suspense-filled murder mystery and an intriguing love triangle. The murder mystery was thick with questions about who the killer was, and I have to say I was caught completely off guard when the person responsible confessed! As far as the romance element, Adelaide finds herself as one lucky girl- she has not one but two handsome, charming heroes vying for her heart! I will be interested to see in future novels in this series which one she will choose! Honestly, I'm not sure which one I'm rooting for because I like them both! Decisions, decisions! Lastly, I was delighted to learn more about New Orleans! Although I have never visited the city (shame on me!), the authentic details the author infused throughout the story made me feel that I was right smack dab in the middle of The Big Easy!
