Overview

Crimson rays from the sun’s morning light shine on an isolated bayou and expose the body of a young woman.

Mignon Thibeaux, a renowned artist and recently returned local, is adapting to the slow-paced life of the Cane River and its enigmatic people. It is she who finds the young woman floating in the bayou, strangled and left in the timorous dark waters. It is also Mignon who will become embroiled in the hunt for the person who is responsible for the young woman’s death.

Mignon will discover she has more in common with the dead girl than she would have ever imagined, including being related to Mignon’s murdered mother. The exotic world of the Louisianan Creoles has bloomed into a locale providing the impetus for a vile murder. Danger and knowledge vie for dominance, and only Mignon can unravel its secrets.

    Good Read

    I buy every book by C.L. Bevill as soon as I find a new one. I was a little disappointed in this one. The first part of the book just didn't feel like a Bevill book. It was too....prissy? I'm having a hard time finding the right word. Maybe...trying too hard to be "real" literature. I almost stopped when I read about "the birds calling one to another". A full paragraph naming trees. This type of writing is why I stopped reading Koontz.

    However, that style of writing soon faded into the perfect Bevill voice that I enjoy so much. The rest of the book did not disappoint in any way. 300+ pgs.

    So here I sit eagerly waiting for the next book. Caren, can you please write faster? You can eat/ drink while writing and sleep is overated.

    I will continue to buy every book this very talented author publishes.

    Intriguing and compelling

    I am a big C.L. Bevill fan. She has written some of the funniest books, some of the most romantic, and some of the most thought provoking books I have ever read. This murder mystery is really as introspective as it is entertaining. A fascinating look into a way of life hundreds of years in the making. Thank you for your courage in writing Crimson Bayou.

    Exciting

    This book is interesting, exciting, and has many surprises. I have been to Louisianna, therefore I enjoyed that the story takes place around a bayou.

    Very much enjoyed.

    I have gotten all her books so far and am avidly waiting for the next. If writers would just write faster the world would be a happier place.

    Fab.u.lous!

    What a great read! Mignon Thibeaux is a savvy, intelligent, creative soul who has great insight into those around her. John Henry is a perfect foil for this sassy, yet lonely woman. I do recommend reading the first book, Bayou Moon, before diving into this one, as it will explain why the characters interact as they do in the this book.

    Even tho' these books are in the science fiction category, there isn't really much in the way of paranormal experiences, unless you count the way the author describes Mignon's artistic abilities.

    This is a great 'who dun-it' murder mystery, with a story line that lives and breathes. It explores the world of discrimination that existed within creole society with delicacy and tact and makes one think about how society as a whole sometimes wears a very thin veneer of civility.
