Denizens of The Big Easy know its steamy nights can hide any number of sins and secrets. Private-eye Anne Lockhart is counting on it. Her life has been in a holding pattern ever since her sister Katie disappeared without a trace…but when a clue leads Anne to a jazz club in the French Quarter, everything changes. Rising Moon's proprietor, John Rodolfo, is mysterious in his own right, a gifted musician who reaches deep into Anne's soul and whose mere presence taps into desires she can't afford to indulge...

By going undercover at the Rising Moon, Anne can get close to people who know what goes on after dark--people like John, whose nocturnal disappearances are more than a little suspicious. But unlocking John's secrets is harder than Anne had anticipated. What's far too easy is surrendering to him. And now someone--or something--is stalking the innocent and the guilty, and waiting for Anne's next move...

Man, I love this series! Honestly, the Nightcreature series is so cool! And of course, Lori's writing style is so comfy and descriptive. I also love that every single heroine in this series feels so real, and so different. They're just ordinary gals thrown into extraordinary situations with some lovely heros. Yikes! You've just gotta check out these guys.

The mystery in this novel kept me glued to every page, until I found out how it all came together. The tension was fantastic, and I was suspecting everyone of everything. Lol. I loved the attraction between Anne and John, and of course the way New Orleans was painted. Lori made me see every detail as if I was there, and I've never been anywhere near it. She really is awesome!

I've got the next one on my bookshelf already, so I can't wait to read it. We're heading into Gypsy stuff in the next one. Super cool!

I tried to win a critique by Lori in Brenda Novak's auction...sadly I was beat out by a higher bid. Sniffle. I love her books!

That's a great review, but I feel soooo out of it, because I'm not aware of this series. :( Sorry.
