There are two stories here. Its described as a novella anyway. The first one deals with a love story which is fairly straightforward and rather simplistic. The second one did not impress me at all. Set in the bayou country the redeeming feature of this was that it educated me on bayou food which sounds very good, the language or patois which is interesting and a very hoity toity attitude by the landed gentry!
I fell for the cover not the book! Dash short for Dashiel and Rachel Alexander are the detectives in this murder mystery. A mysterious call in the middle of the night - murder of a hooker and transvestite hookers being anxious over their fate as they feel they are being targetted by someone forms the basis of the book. A bit complicated for me and not really right for this season but that is my fault, not the authors. This is No 6 of the series so there is a fair amount of reading here.
I still have a fair amount of books to go through before the end of the year. I am starting on The Wild Irish as I want to have a change of scene from really soppy Christmas fare!
