Really gripping story.
Exciting, with a gripping storyline are the first words which come to mind when summing up this audiobook.
This story, begins with two excited young Cajun girls, just moved to New York from the Louisiana Bayou preparing for one to go on a blind date. However, the date is not as expected, and the evening which follows turns out to be nothing like either could ever have imagined, as one of them is murdered!
Devastated, the other girl travels back the home with the investigating Detective searching for answers. In the sleepy Louisiana Bayou however, life is very different and its inhabitants live by different rules.
Will they discover a motive or track down the killer? You will have to listen to the book to find out!
The author, Nicole Loughan sets the scenes beautifully throughout this thoroughly enjoyable murder mystery. With plenty of twists and turns, and an ending you could never have guessed, I would not hesitate to recommend this fairly short story (1hr 53mins) to all lovers of murder mysteries.
This is the first narration by Suzie Lexington I have heard, however, I loved the easy listening sound of her voice. I have to admit that I cannot honestly say if her voice was Cajun, all I know is that to me it sounded perfect for this story.
