Returning to the Darkwater Inn after a restorative sabbatical in England, Adelaide Fountaine's role as general manager is once again interrupted by tragedy; a robbery gone wrong, with no survivors. Apparently, after hacking into the inn's security system, someone had successfully pilfered a priceless tiara from the hotel safe. There are more questions than answers, and while the two men in Adelaide's life are both determined to help her find them, her mixed feelings about how each of them can fit into her future is still as confusing as ever.
Dark intentions swirl through-out this intriguing second novel, in Robin Caroll's must-read Darkwater Inn series.
The mystery heightens when Adelaide is abducted. Can these two men set aside their differences and work together to save the woman they both care for before it’s too late?
Author Robin Caroll has done it again in book two from the Darkwater Inn series – Darkwater Lies. It’s a clever tale that captured my attention from page one. With twists and turns around every corner, I had to keep reading to unravel the mystery. I like a story where you don’t know who is behind it and this one doesn’t disappoint.
I once again fell in love with the characters—Addy, Beau, and Dimitri. They’re solid and come alive on the page. However, I found myself rooting for Team Beau, but we’ll have to wait for Darkwater Truth before we find out who she chooses!
It’s apparent the author has done her homework with the research of New Orleans, Mardi Gras, voodoo, and the royalty of Liechtenstein. This brings the novel to life and the reader can picture exactly what the character sees. Awesome writing!
I really enjoy this series and look forward to the final installment.
I give Darkwater Lies four Mardi Gras beads. The mystery takes you to the heart of New Orleans and grabs you by the throat!
**An e-copy of this book was provided by the author for my honest opinion.
Addy is General Manager of Darkwater Inn, a luxury, historic hotel in the French Quarter. It is owned by Claude Pampalon, who groomed his son Dimitri to be the CEO, a position he doesn’t want. Instead, Dimitri is the chef at the Inn’s renowned restaurant. His half sister Lissette, daughter of a woman Claude had secretly seen, has been confirmed as Claude’s daughter. Dimitri helped Lissette get on board to learn to be CEO of the Inn and, due to the inheritance laws unique to their state, will share Claude’s estate with Dimitri they thought.
Approximately an hour after discovered, Addy learns of a hack into the computer systems. She hurries to see if the vault has been compromised when the security team is unable to get a response from the guard posted there. She and Dimitri find the vault open, and dead inside is one of the Inn’s guards and a guard of Liechtenstein’s Princess Katerina. The safe at the back of the vault has also been opened, and is now missing $50,000 cash, a black velvet tubular pouch Claude had secured there a couple days ago, and the jewel-encrusted tiara the Princess brought with her. Thus begins the investigation into a labyrinth of theft of incredibly valuable items, murders, and even more difficult for Dimitri and Beau, one of the detectives, Addy’s kidnapping. It is a tangled web of intrigue, in which one clue might lead to another crime, or an unexpected bad guy or gal.
I enjoyed getting to know Addy, Dimitri, and Beau better! I also appreciated “meeting” the princess and learning about her Liechtenstein home. Addy has an inner strength and an engaging manner of drawing people into conversations. She has been away from the Lord for a very long time, trying to overcome the anger and resentment that long had a grip on her. The potential romance she put on hold almost a year ago still awaits her attention. Beau, who she has known since childhood, has loved her for most of her life. Dimitri hasn’t known her as long, but he also is in love with her. They are each aware of the other’s feelings and awaiting her decision of who she will go out with. Since I like both, it is hard to guess which one she might choose! Addy had been in Europe for several months of special training, and had taken a long assessment of the direction she is going in. Dimitri is a man of faith, and he prays for all concerned with the circumstances. In that respect I think he would be a good choice.
There are exciting plot twists throughout that continually change the landscape of the story. It is a challenge to determine who was behind each – or all – of the crimes, and there were definite surprises. This is a highly-satisfying novel that reminds me all over again how much I love this author’s work. I highly recommend this to anyone who appreciates excellent Christian intrigue with the potential for romance in a fascinating, historical setting.
From a grateful heart: I received a complimentary copy of the e-Arc, and this is my honest review.
