They say there are blessings from Hurricane Katrina. For Viola Valentine of New Orleans, it was losing her dead-end job and leaving behind a loveless marriage and an overbearing family.

But the storm also blew open a psychic door. Now she sees ghosts who have died by water.

As she enters her new career as travel writer, solving mysteries that appear with apparitions everywhere she goes, the one person she hopes to speak to — her daughter who died of leukemia years before — continues to elude her.

Or does she?

About the Author

Cherie Claire is the award-winning author of several Louisiana romances and a paranormal mystery series. Her latest is the Viola Valentine paranormal mystery series, featuring New Orleans travel writer and ghost sleuth Viola Valentine. The books are: "A Ghost of a Chance" "Ghost Town" "Trace of a Ghost" "Ghost Trippin'" "Give Up The Ghost" Originally published with Kensington, the “Cajun Series” of historical romance follows a family of Acadians (Cajuns) who travel to South Louisiana and start anew after being exiled from their Nova Scotia home. The first three books (“Emilie,” “Rose,” “Gabrielle,”) follow the Gallant sisters as they attempt to reunite with their father (and find love) in the wilds of Louisiana and “Delphine” (Book Four) takes place during Louisiana's role in the American Revolution. The Dugas family saga continues into the 19th century with “A Cajun Dream” (Book Five) and “The Letter” (Book Six). Cherie is also the author of “The Cajun Embassy” series of contemporary romances – “Ticket to Paradise,” “Damn Yankees” and “Gone Pecan.” What happens when several Columbia journalism coeds homesick for Louisiana find comfort in a bowl of Cajun gumbo? They become lifelong friends. Because love — and a good gumbo — changes everything. Cherie lives in South Louisiana where she works as a travel and food writer when not indulging in Cajun culture.

Combining fact ( as of so far) and fiction this author spins a heartbreaking tale..the loss of a child, marriage, the aftermath of hurricane Katrinia. Several ghost tales from well know hotels have their stories told. Well written, very engaging. Of course in the book as in life theres always one person that grates your nerve

The characters in this story are so real you can feel them, hear them, see them. However the storyline seemed "herky-jerky" so the reading didn't transport you as it could have. I am interested to read the next book to spend more time with this character though.
