This is a different take on the typical Graham book, this time the woman isn't a cop, or even close to being a cop, she's an artist. For a book placed in New Orleans the only Voodoo participant is a secondary character &am

This book starts off with a bang -- Jon Marcel shows up at his ex-wife Ann's door, covered in blood and saying "I didn't do it." One of the women whose portrait he painted has been murdered. Then, he goes into shock and, eventually, into a coma.

So, we meet detective Mark LaCrosse as he interviews Ann at the hospital .. since Jon is his prime suspect. However, there's another murder while Jon is in the hospital ... and soon murders or attempts thereof seem to dog Ann's footsteps.

I enjoyed this suspense romance. I love everything Heather Graham writes and this was no exception. I thought I might have read it before but as I got further into it I hadn't.

Jon and Ann Marcel are divorced but best friends. Both artists in New Orleans they share a very unique relationship. Jon has painted a series of pictures from a strip club. On opening night of the showing of his paintings Jon arrives at Ann's door covered in blood and saying he didn't do it.

This story had some very uniqu

Down in new Orleans

Another winner. Great romance and mystery. This author writes wonderful storylines and great characters in every book. I have read all her paranormal ghost series with FBI agents as they are my favorite. Read most of her romance books also. Over fifty of them. I highly recommend all her book s to all. Diana Romano

Murder n mystery in New Orleans

Oh how I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars. What an incredible read. I think I have found myself a new author.
Being from the New Orleans area, I really liked reading about my city in such a good light. This book will keep you guessing till the end.

Good suspense, romance in New Orleans culture

A fun, quick read which is well written and keeps the suspense to the last pages. A clever plot of murder, a good flavor of New Orleans culture including two tracks deep into the bayou complete with ample romance and intimacy.

Once I started reading this book I couldn't wait to finish it. This is the first book I have read by this author . It was a good mystery and had me laughing out loud at certain parts. I plan on reading more from this author in the future.
