One unexpected and hotly fought-over little boy, two dead bodies, and a series of home vandalisms throw Texas attorney turned island chanteuse Katie Connell into a tizzy. Juggling all of this, Bloody Mary cravings, baggage, and the bad guys too, she waffles between the jumbie house that brought her back from the brink and the man she believes is the love of her life.

I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first book, Saving Grace. It left me wanting to hear more about Katie, her life, her loves and what craziness is going to creep into her life next. This second book, Leaving Annalise, didn't fail to deliver! You can always find a character that is either "just like you" or someone you know, so it makes it easy to relate to her books. Katie is so likeable, but definitely not perfect. She has a fiery temper and a strange cleaning phobia/obsession. One reviewer stated "We get it, they're in love" but it isn't annoying or over the top to me, it's refreshing to read about a love like Katie and Nick have found. Who doesn't want a man who adores his wife and still gives her chills and butterflies. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book for the Katie & Annalise series!
I was looking forward to this sequel because I wanted to know more about the jumbie house, whether the heroine gets the hero or not, and the flavors and sounds that come alive in this book about island living, murder and mayhem, with a side of suspense and psychotic behavior. What's not to love? That being said, you should read Saving Grace (first book in series) first because that is where you are introduced to the wonderful, full bodied and sometimes zany characters. That is important. You want to know these people - they could be you or your best friend or your irritating neighbors - except living on a beautiful island. I found Leaving Annalise a perfect second book in this series, even better than the first one, and I really liked the first one!
I received this book free from the author in exchange for a review. I do not know her and this is an honest review. At first, I thought this was going to be a gushy romantic novel, not my genre. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It turned out to be a romantic suspense that I thoroughly enjoyed. Apparently so, as I writing this review at 3:00 in the morning which is the time I finished. It was very well written with lots of plot twists and action. The fact that it was written by a Texan with scenes from Texas made me enjoy it even further. I highly recommend this book!!! And, I look forward to reading others in this series.
