This book has intriguing characters, is well-written, and has a great mystery with a paranormal feel to it. Based on the boring, amateurish looking cover, I almost didn't get this book even though it was free at the time I downloaded it. Even now the plain black cover turns me off and somehow upsets me. But I had nothing else to read so I took a chance and found it surprisingly hard to put down. I loved the characters and their community. The romance between the main female and male characters was sweet (no erotic sex scenes). Both leading characters were strong and independent. And the mystery made it hard for me to stop reading until it was resolved. I also really liked the descriptions of superstitions at the start of every chapter.

I would likely buy the next book if this became a series. However, with so many books from not so well-known independent writers to choose from, the author really needs to improve the cover on her books and make it look more professional so readers like me would be less likely to pass up her books at first glance.

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me searching for more through the entire book, and it didn't disappoint. I've read a few of this authors books before, and liked them ok, so I thought I would read this one. The others were ok, but this one was really great. I didn't put it down until I finished it.
The characters, plot, and the mystery involved wasn't easily figured out, which I loved. I hate books when I can basically describe the whole thing after reading just the first few pages. This one had some suprising twists and turns all the way to the end.

2nd book I've read from this author and she is definitely an author to watch. Good writing. Good plot. Characters you can enjoy. Nice read that catches you early on and holds you.

You know you've picked a good book when, after reading for only 20 minutes, the hair is standing up on your arms. And you just know by then that it's going to get better and better - which means scarier and scarier. Then, you think, Can my heart take it? I have to work tomorrow... That's what you get when you read this book ... mystery, horror, paranormal, adventure... well, you get the picture, everything; and mostly all at once! I read for a living so I don't spend a lot of time with my "for-fun reading" if it's not compelling and thrilling. This one fits the bill. You'll never feel the same about Barbie dolls - and a million other things. (Special advice: Best not to read this when alone and try not to be too suspicious of people you casually meet just because you've been exposed to this book. Well... maybe you should be. And go look into your mirror right now to see what color your eyes are!) ~Dinah Roseberry

I couldn't finish this one, stopped at 38%. I'm not sure what was the least appealing, the story or the writing. Here's an example:

His shin pounded like the devil had come up from the Gulf for a bit of crawdaddy gumbo and to play the steel drums until he got what he wanted.

DNF - I won't finish this book. No matter how intriguing the characters, the town, the lake, the story, all of these trivial issues will just pile up and bury me. I won't be able to enjoy it.

I'm through the first 6 chapters, and as far as I can see the prologue doesn't serve any purpose but to leave me wondering what kind of woman is afraid of her husband but will leave a newborn infant in the car in his driveway and go for a walk in the woods.

Then, when (presumably) the husband discovers infant, he knows his estranged wife's child needs to be protected, even though he doesn't know whose car it is or whose baby. It's clear that he wasn't in the woods to hear the wife scream, which means he doesn't know something has happened to her. How does he know right away that the child needs protection?

Forward twenty-something years, and we're following the woman who was (again, presumably) the infant left in the car. She's on her way to her life-long-best friend's, who shares her orphanage past, who is going to help her by giving her a place to stay and has arranged a job for her. Bad things happen, and she decides that hitchhiking is better than calling this friend (who is helping her out of dire straits, who has survived other dire straits with her) to come get her. She's willing to show up on friend's doorstep starving, freezing, broke, and filthy, but she doesn't want that friend to know how dire her straits have become.

So, she gets into a black, completely unmarked big rig with chrome dog fangs devouring a barbie doll on the grill. Then is surprised when the driver ends up a very bad guy.

The bad guy is opening himself up to being pulled over by every patrol he passes because he's not even running dot numbers.

This is the first ... but not last ...of Ms. Bevill's books that I've read ... and I'm still trying to understand why she is being given away. I understand about INTRODUCING an author at a free or .99 rate ... but why all of hers? She is a fabulous writer! Her written illustration of Cajun life and patterns, her description of the cypress-filled bayous ... is wonderful, including the mystery that often surrounds their lives. She keeps you on the edge of your seat with the fast-paced, life threatening missteps of her heroine; she has you yearning for the telepathic closeness between Anna and Gabriel in particular ... and with the community as a whole. I've paid a lot more for less gifted authors and have to agree with her website ... editors and publishers are missing the boat. I sincerely hope their blindness ... or closed minds? ... don't last forever. She deserves much more recognition that she is receiving.

If you are a fan of the paranormal, mystery ... even romance ...I do not think you will be disappointed in the LEAST with this volume. And you will be fed a VERY satisfying helping of Cajun as well!

Bon Appetit!
