Blurb: From a tough stint in the armed forces to stalking the unknown as a bayou cop, leopard-shifter Remy Boudreux has been served well by his uncanny gifts. And right now, New Orleans could use a homicide detective like Remy.
A serial killer is loose, snatching victims from the French Quarter with pitiless rage and unnatural efficiency. But something else is drawing Remy into the twilight — a beautiful jazz singer bathed night after night in a flood of blood-red neon.
Sultry, mysterious, and as seductive as her songs, she’s luring Remy deeper into the shadows than he ever imagined. And as their passions swell, his keen instinct for survival will be challenged like never before. By a killer — and by a woman.
Review: I remember enjoying this book a great deal and it’s a mystery romance, which is what I usually enjoy but most of the time, I wanted to shake both of them.
Remy is supposed to be smooth but he can’t even talk to his mate without saying the wrong thing and making her think that they weren’t meant to be together. A whole lot of misunderstanding going on here and it kind of took away from the mystery. It was kind of like the mystery was trying to push to the front because they kept getting interrupted but then something would happen to bring the couple back to the spotlight.
About the mystery, I thought the bone carver was well thought out, I mean I didn’t even really suspect who it was even though I got a little creep vibe from one of the characters. I feel that the side crimes though were maybe just filler to keep the book from slowing down and to throw everyone off track.
The cover is compelling and the writing is good, though not as great as Savage Nature but good enough to keep me interested. This is one romance mystery that I will not count as one of my favorites but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy reading it. Maybe it’s because I only knew Remy for one book?
Thank you for reading my review.
