Again what a rollercoaster ride. I haven’t felt a hangover like this in a while. Maria brings you right into the middle of these peoples lives and drops you in. Love it!
Now we know more about what is going on with Avery and Lincoln. We have their past and some of what they want for their future. But man we have no idea the depths these bad people will go to get what they want. And what they want is the city of New Orleans.
Avery and Lincoln need each other and whatever friends they still have at the end of this to come out alive. But what secrets will they find and what secrets might tear them apart?
I loved this duet and I will be reading more of Maria’s books. I am a big fan now.
What a great freaking book!! I devoured my first Maria Luis book.
This story starts out with a bang and keeps you guessing all the way to the end, which of course ends on a cliff. But that is okay TRUST ME!
Avery is a 13-year-old girl when she ends up on the streets. She has to become unknown and a shadow to stay safe. Now at 25, she has become many people but she is Avery Washington a tarot card reader. She is a loner that has secrets that could get her killed, or so she believes.
Lincoln Asher has a history that is not pretty. He is a detective, killer, drug runner, and so much more. But in the very core of his soul, he has a heart, it just hasn’t beat for a very long time. But when he meets Avery on chance, he finds a young woman that defies everything he believes and sees him for what he could become not what he was.
I loved this story and couldn’t wait for the next one.
When she’s not writing about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet, Maria is a historian who specializes in medieval England and 19th century New Orleans. What do the two eras have in common, you ask? Not much, except for disease, scandalous activities and crime–Maria’s favorite topics.
Maria lives in New Orleans with her better half, where she can generally be found hiking with her two dogs, Zeus and Athena, kayaking in Louisiana’s inter-coastal waterways, or curled up on the couch with a good book.
