Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: sci-fi and fantasy, Romance
I really enjoyed Nancy's collaborative novel After the curtain call, so when she asked if I'd like to review this new book I was keen to read it. Its a very different style, different genre, but the romance is the same tender, realistic type, and the characters feel very genuine.
I've a weakness for PNR, and for books set in new Orleans, its a perfect setting for the voodoo/houdou type read. With this book I could mentally visualise the characters and settings, and felt very much a part of the story. that's important to me, I want to feel the danger, the surprise, the closeness of a relationship, not just watch it unfold, but really believe in it.
I loved Rowan, she's a kind and generous soul, and the inheritance comes just at the time when she needs a fresh start. She soon finds out she's inherited much more than just the tavern though, that it comes at a cost, and there's no escape.
There are some great characters in her new life though, and they rally round to help where they can. Luke is one of them. He worked for her uncle, and lives - in the storeroom, sharing washing facilities with Rowen's apartment!
They don't hit it off at first sight, Luke is very antagonistic to her. Slowly they get to know each other though, and she discovers his prickly outlook is his way of protecting himself from his past tragedy.
Without either of them realising how, they've gone from surly comments to becoming lovers, and Luke fears for Rowan. He knows just how eerie New Orleans can be, how the things that go jump in the night aren't always human, and certainly don't play by human rules. The closer he gets to her the more he can see the danger and its coming to a head.
I loved the way this developed slowly, not just rammed in with an insta-lust relationship, and life threatening dangers from second chapter. Sometimes there's far more to be gained from stories like this that are paced carefully, let plots develop and the reader work out whats happening, with having to be spoon fed it because there's been no time to lay clues. That's the best story for me, whatever the genre, one that flows at its own pace, lets me try to work out what is happening and puzzle over a resolution - not that I ever succeed. That's why I'm a reader and not a writer.
Stars: 5. a fun, standalone paranormal romance, with the spooky voodoo spirits typical of stories in this setting.

I’ve never visited New Orleans in my life, but as I was reading this book I mentioned to my husband maybe we should put New Orleans on our bucket list. The Galloping Goose is described so well, I consider it to be a living, breathing character.
Well done, Nancy. I’m ready for another one of your stories!
I received this story in exchange for an honest review.
