    I Also Recommend:

    well researched, beautifully written

    Set on a plantation, Belle Ombre, in America's deep south just after the civil war, 'What Remains' is a murder mystery and historical fiction novel, with a healthy dose of romance mixed in. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; the characters were well developed and realistic and the book was very obviously well researched, giving the reader the feeling of being transported back in time to the middle of the nineteenth century. I was reminded of'Gone With The Wind' on a few occasions.<BR/>Shortly after the civil war, Paul Delahoussaye, a journalist, is assigned to do interviews with both Union and Confederate officers, it is during one of these interviews that he is given a bundle of letters which had been found lying on the ground after battle. Paul's natural curiosity leads him to read the letters; letters written by Isabelle to her fiance who was at war. Paul feels drawn to the writer of the letters and compelled to meet her. He travels to Belle Ombre plantation to deliver the letters to Isabelle, but there is a feeling that he is hopeful for a relationship to develop between them. Isabelle, is mourning the death of her fiance when Paul arrives at Belle Ombre. He also discovers that there has been a mysterious death at the house. He is invited to stay at the house and the next day there is a murder at the plantation and Paul is asked to help investigate who is responsible for the two deaths, which now appear to be linked.<BR/>The novel is beautifully written and has many unexpected twists and turns which keeps the reader interested, and always wondering what will happen next.<BR/>I would highly recommend this novel.

    Excellent mystery!

    Call it a haunting mystery or a tantalizing romance, or a tantalizing mystery and a haunting romance. WHAT REMAINS is a celebration of the expediency, ingenuity, and indestructibility of Southern women. Set on Belle Ombre Plantation shortly after the Civil War, with characters so real we recognize them, emotions so universal we have all encountered them, the story involves the reader--and after all the sighs and shudders, we are satisfied that justice has been done in an oddly appropriate way. At Belle Ombre, this is called discretion. The ending implies that's not all there is and leaves us eager for the sequel, which must be forthcoming.

    Can't put this one down!

    I rarely read fiction but when I do I expect it to be excellent. This mystery qualifies with great plot twists that keep you captivated until the very end. The setting is post-Civil War south and seems historically accurate. Best of all, the characters are so complex and realistic you'll feel like you know them well. I couldn't put this book down.
