Nitpickiness (your choice to read or not):
The h came from a family with money but her parents spent most of it so she's supporting herself on her own earnings. She hosts a voodoo night at her restaurant to bring in more business, and splits the $75 cover charge with the voodoo priestess. At one point it's mentioned there were 15 guests the night of the murder, which means she brought in $562.50, before expenses. The restaurant was closed for a few days after the murder, so no income there. She's paying the H, who is a private detective and doesn't live in the area, because he's staying at a B&B. Salary plus expenses are more than she made while he was hired. And what was she paying him for, and for how many hours? Did it include when they were between the sheets? He stuck around after the muggings were solved, so was she still paying him when he investigated the murder? I'd like to have seen her face when she got the final bill. Also, it was hard to swallow that his boss was a matchmaker at heart, and chose the H for the job because the H and h had had a relationship 8 years earlier.
Eugenia owns a restaurant and to increase business she agreed to have a voodoo priestess perform once a month. Recently two of her customers have been mugged so she called in a security company. Naturally out of all the people she did not want to see, they sent ex-boyfriend. His first night on the job, right at the beginning of the voodoo performance, a guest drops dead. After the cops finish interviewing her and she gets home to get a little rest, someone starts sneaking around, so who does she call? Yep, hot hunk, yummy ex. ICK, chicken guts and stuff! Eugenia doesn't really believe in gris-gris, but she has lived in New Orleans long enough to worry! Someone wishes really bad stuff for her.
I won the book during an online release party for another author. This is my first Decorah Security book I have read but I will be reading more.
This book depends on that ambience and rapidly whisks the reader up into that atmosphere...
I like this whole series. Decorah Security makes so many fascinating plot twists and turns possible. Gotta admit... it makes for an interesting life... being in the protection/security business.
I always count on Rebecca York to have "thinking" heroines.... and men you can believe are attracted to them. In this novel once again...Rebecca York does not let us down.
For me personally, I am particularly enamored by books that do a good job with New Orleans as a setting. Again, Rebecca York does not fail here either.
IF you enjoy the Decorah Security premise... I can't imagine you won't find this book a rich entertainment!
Eugenia Beaumont hires Decorah Security to find out who's trying to ruin her business. Decorah Security sends Rafe Gascon, a man with psychic powers to get to the bottom of the mystery. It seems strange that Rafe is sent to solve the issue since he and Eugenia were almost involved with each other as teenagers.
Could the owner of Decorah Security (Frank Decorah) be playing match maker between his client and and his employee? Will Rafe and Eugenia pick things up where they left off? Will they take things to the next level? Will they be able to figure out who is trying to ruin Eugenia's business?
Give this book a try to see what happens to Rafe and Eugenia.
