Midnight on the Mississippi by Mary Ellis
I could hardly wait to get this book.
Ellis is an author that I admire, her writing is superb, and now that she's moving into some suspense, I'm delighted! This book doesn't disappoint.
The protagonist is a spunky, albeit clumsy, PI who is determined to prove her worth in detecting. Hindered from the start by her uncle with his less than satisfactory view of her and her immediate family and his refusal to let her work with him, she doesn't let that stop her. Fortunately, Hunter, the co-protagonist and accused, takes "a shine to her" and hires her to find the murderer of his partner.
Unpleasant details immerge about the partner--blackmail and indiscretions, that further the plot. The uncle proves to be dishonest, Hunter's girlfriend--not what she seems, and a whole lot more goes on in this novel. The romance develops even though Hunter and Nikki seem unsuited. The setting is delightful--New Orleans--with vivid details about the city and descriptions of the food to die-for!.
When Nikki finally finds the murderer, she not only solves the present day crime, but one that took place seventeen years prior. A delightful mystery that will keep all mystery lovers glued to their chairs! Highly recommended. Given to me by the publisher for an honest review, if desired.
I recommend this book for all readers. The thought, alone, of soaring on eagle's wings, is fascinating to me because what are we if we cannot trust God? And to fly high above situations and problems that would drag us down below anything less than sky-high victory with God is unsatisfactory. Provided a copy of this book for an honest opinion and review, I appreciate the opportunity of reading it!
Enjoy! and super blessings!
