Geneva Deveraux Stone swore that she would never return to the Louisiana Delta or to the Deveraux Estate. Never return to her hard-fisted father in the land of her birth, and the veiled mysteries, the memories of violence and murder. Over thirty years ago Helena Deveraux and her infant son died, the secret of their violent deaths buried by the powerful Old Man Deveraux. Their deaths were never investigated, explained or solved.
Now, however, her father is dying, and so is Gen’s marriage to wealthy financier Barry Stone. Cast adrift from the life she has built in New York City, hounded by the paparazzi, Gen breaks a lifelong vow and flies back to the South, deep in the bayou country of Southern Louisiana. Back into the fading power of the Old Man Deveraux, back to the unanswered questions, back to her past.
Waiting for Gen is her sister Lily and her beloved niece and nephew, her old nanny, Della, her dying father, the old mystery, and Starnes Templar, the teenage love she left behind when she ran away to the big city and a new way of life. Now, Geneva must confront the riddles of her youth, the questions of her own identity, and the yawning chasm that is her future.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This novel has everything a reader could want for a thoroughly engaging, entertaining reading experience. A background that oozes with bayou sounds and smells. More than one contemporary, realistic romance. Coming to terms with one's past and upbringing, and righting old wrongs. Delightful French, cagun, and black dialect. A mystery to solve. Passages that will cause the reader to weep while others that will cause the reader to laugh or chortle. But most of all, Blackwater Secrets is about family--an old family, a dying family, a strong family. The reader will want to continue reading long after the last paragraph is read and the book is closed. This book is a keeper.
