Indigo: Sensuous Love Stories
Lieutenant Hardesty Arnaud was just hired as Police Chief of her
hometown, St. Martine, LA, and now has a murder on her hands. What’s
worse is that none of the people in the town, including the mayor,
newspaper editor, or even the deputy DeWitt DuPree, care about proper
procedure. They tamper with evidence, try to take away evidence
and even use the body as some sort of prop for a morbid picture
of the deputy for his photo album. Now, one would think that Hardesty
has enough to deal with…until she finds out who the victim
Nick Brannigan has come down to investigate why U.S. Marshall John
Murphy, who was protecting their star witness, Capizi, from a mob
family who’s after him, hasn’t returned any phone calls,
and why the Chief of Police had sent Capizi’s fingerprints
to Washington for identification. He couldn’t have imagined
that while trying to find the Chief’s house, he’d run
into the woman of his dreams.
This is an amazingly
well-written read about a hot, humid, down-in-the-bayou romance.
What I love about the team of Miriam Pace and Jackie Hamilton is
that they write stories in such a realistic way. The characters
ALL have quirks, the women are REAL women, and the men get proverbially
sucker-punched when they first MEET them. The plot is absolutely
brilliant, and the down home comforts of the South shine through
the pages like moonlight through the branches of the bayou trees.
I definitely recommend this book!
