This book had just the right amount of drama, romance and intrigue to keep me flipping through the pages, and I even learned a lbit about New Orleans and Cajun country in the 1920's. Looking forward to reading Ms. Shurr's next book in this series, Mardi Gras Madness.

This story  about a New Orleans debutante had me intrigued from the first page to the last.  The descriptions of  New Orleans traditions and customs was spot-on .  I highly recommend  this book as a great summer read or any other season of the year! Great job, Ms. Shurr.

Loved this story about Rosamond St. Rochelle, a New Orleans debutante who dared to imagine that she could be something more than a 'trophy' wife and 'queen of the Mardi Gras ball'. Is there romance? Yes, but so much more. The book is rich with the history of Louisiana's Cajun country and 1920's New Orleans. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!
