First of all, I am a native and resident of New Orleans, and I love reading novels set in the city. However, if that novel contains a character named Deveraux (I don't know anyone here named Deveraux), takes place during Mardi Gras, or involves voodoo, I usually pass. I thought this would be interesting, with the Katrina connection, but I was wrong. Even though the main character is named Deveraux, I decided to give it a chance. After seeing on one page the word champagne spelled "champaign", and that her grandmother lived in an alcohol-free zone of the city, it was time to push the "Remove from device" button. All you authors out there, if you are going to set your story in this city, do some homework! Don't call streetcars "trolleys", don't have a Jazz Funeral, and please don't have your characters speak in a Cajun accent. And PLEASE use spell-check, and have someone proofread for grammar mistakes.
