Darkwater Secrets by Robin Caroll
A murder investigation uncovers sordid secrets and haunting mistakes
The Darkwater Inn stands tall and proud in the French Quarter, the hub of New Orleans. Bourbon Street is bustling, and General Manager Adelaide Fountaine has her hands full with a hotel at capacity. She, along with everyone else, is shocked when a body is found: a hotel guest stabbed with a kitchen knife.
Detective Beau Savoie, Adelaide’s childhood friend, is on the case. As Beau digs into the victim’s past, he unearths a shocking connection between Adelaide and the murdered guest. Beau is hurt that his friend—the woman he’s quietly loved for years—kept the truth from him. To make matters worse, the stress of the investigation has sent Adelaide right into the comforting arms of her coworker Dimitri. But Beau can’t press Adelaide too hard . . . he’s keeping secrets of his own.
Can Adelaide and Beau afford to hide from the truth with a killer on the loose?
This is the first book in an exciting new series. The action begins right from the first page.
You meet Adelaide, get shown around just a bit at the inn where she works, and almost immediately meet several different guys that think very highly of her (aka think themselves in love with her…).
And then, you turn around again, and there’s a murder. And a murderer on the loose.
This author knows how to spin a delightfully enchanting suspense. One that will make you want to keep reading until the very end.
This story is filled with unexpected twists and turns. The perfect blend of mystery, intrigue, and some romance.
