Description from goodreads :

The bones said death was comin’, and the bones never lied.

While on an early morning patrol in the swamps of Whiskey Bayou, Louisiana wildlife agent Gentry Broussard spots a man leaving the home of voodoo priestess Eva Savoie—a man who bears a startling resemblance to his brother, whom Gentry thought he had killed during a drug raid three years earlier. Shaken, the agent enters Eva’s cabin and makes a bloody discovery: the old woman has been brutally murdered.

With no jurisdiction over the case, he’s forced to leave the investigation to the local sheriff, until Eva’s beautiful heir, Celestine, receives a series of gruesome threats. As Gentry’s involvement deepens and more victims turn up, can he untangle the secrets behind Eva’s murder and protect Celestine from the same fate? Or will an old family curse finally have its way?

From award-winning author Susannah Sandlin comes the first book in the Wilds of the Bayou series.

My opinion:
           Suzanne/ Susannah never disappointed me so far so when she decided to start writing in the romance suspense genre i was happy ( more than that) to follow her and give it a try. I'm honoured to have gotten the opportunity to read an advance copy and i really don't regret it, it's FABULOUS!!

This story once it has caught your full attention  won't let you stop until you turn the last page, the tension is simply constant  and the intrigue is distilled gradually with a master hand.  You want to know the culprit and even when you know who, you want the why , how and simply you want to follow the characters on their journey. I loved every moment of this book  really if you love romance suspense this is one you can't miss.

The atmosphere of Louisiana is depicted with justness with the weather but also , the customs, people's way of thinking ; you want to visit to get or live that experience. With a light touch of mysticism, paranormal  because really what would be New Orleans and Louisiana  without that  particular past and blend of beliefs, the author transport us in the swamp to follow Gentry and Celestine, Ceelie,  as their learn more about themselves and the investigation.

I loved how they got attracted to each other but let the time ( and events) built it in something more steps by steps. Ceelie is a lovely woman,  determined for sure but also not realising all her potential. To keep a promise she put her life on a path that wasn't necessarily the one she would have chosen . Now she is confronted to the truth.
Retired from the special force, after an event that quite traumatized him, but not giving up on his want of Justice, Gentry applied  into the LDWF enforcement....which sound even more complicated and demanding than the police is.

The secondary characters are also very well built and you can get attached to them easily like Paul or Jena but the whole bunch of characters is worth discovering. I can’t recommend this book enough really you have it all: the setting, ambiance, suspense, action and romance  all perfectly dosed...a perfect romance suspense!

Score:  5/5
