If she couldn't trust a man, she couldn't trust herself with him. Not even for a fling.

Tanner worked for ten years as a tracker and forest ranger, but now he works with his half-brothers at the P.I. agency. He is assigned to help Josie. He knows Josie from high school but never tells her when it turns out she doesn't recognize him...

In DeLeon’s romantic suspense novel, something is out there wreaking havoc on a Mystere hotel. Tanner LeDoux has just joined his brother’s detective agency and his first case is to find the mythical creature or the malicious vandal and put a stop to the terror. The hotel in question belongs to Jose Bettencourt, Tanner’s first love—a woman who has no idea who he is.

Tanner doesn’t believe in superstition but he’s given the opportunity to be Jose’s knight in shining armor when the unexplained happe
Josie Bettencourt wants to turn her old Plantation home into a Bed and Breakfast. Well, she really has to or else sell the place. That is something she doesn't want to do. But there is something vandalizing the work that is being done and she can't open it unless it's up to code. So she hires Tanner LeDoux, a tracker, to find the creature or person who is doing their best to sabotage her efforts.

It was a pretty decent suspense read but I was surprised at how little romance there really was in it

If you haven't read the previous books, you'll want to go and read them in this order:

1. The Reckoning
2. The Vanishing
3. The Awakening

While each one has a stand-alone story, there is a background mystery and narrative about the three half-brothers and Mystere Parish that you'll enjoy more if you start at the beginning. Besides, each one of these books is well worth the read. Actually...this book might just be my favorite of the three. I liked both the characters a lot and loved the cryptid myste

Enjoyable read

I liked this book better than the previous one. The characters were easier to immediately like, and their stories, interesting. Having lived in Louisiana, I've thoroughly enjoyed reading the descriptions of the setting. I'm not a fan of romance, but these books offer enough of a mystery to keep me interested. I do miss the humor DeLeon incorporates in the Miss Fortune series, though.

Tanner LeDoux has come back to work with his brothers at their new detective agency. However he doesn't expect his first case to bring him face to face with Josie Bettencourt.

Josie doesn't remember Tanner but she is grateful for his help. She has come back to open a bed and breakfast but something or someone doesn't want Josie back. It's up to her and Tanner to solve the mystery so that the B&B can open on schedule. But will past secrets tear Josie and Tanner's budding relationship apart?

Not bad. Got this one because I just loved the 1st Miss Fortune. She has a different writing style. Miss Fortune was in 1st person which I normally avoid. But it was written in a way I really enjoyed.
The ending just was way too simple a wrap up especially for the ongoing plot line of their father's death. It kind of put a damper on the whole series. This was the weakest of the books by far.

This book is not paranormal or fantasy, it stays in the realm of the uncanny, with a monster that we never quite know whether it is superstition or reality. The novel is part of Harlequin Intrigue, and much shorter/less complex than the stories I'm normally used to. Good light reading for relaxation.

Book three in the Mystere Parish series. A mythical creature or a vandal? who is causing trouble in the hotel in Honey swamp? Whatever is lurking will keep you reading. Gotta love spooky old buildings.

This was the last book in the trilogy. I think I liked the 2nd one the best, but this one wrapped it up okay.
