Darkwater Lies by Robin Caroll
Adelaide Fountaine just wants to run the Darkwater Inn efficiently and without trouble after returning from a six-month sabbatical, but when a jewel heist and murder lands on her doorstep, she’s once again thrust into danger. A priceless tiara has gone missing and three people are left dead. Who’s next on the murderer’s list? She not only has to deal with the busy Mardi Gras season and this dangerous puzzle but with a visiting princess and the attention of two men: Beau and Dimitri. How can she choose between the two when they both have captured her heart?
The mystery heightens when Adelaide is abducted. Can these two men set aside their differences and work together to save the woman they both care for before it’s too late?
Author Robin Caroll has done it again in book two from the Darkwater Inn series – Darkwater Lies. It’s a clever tale that captured my attention from page one. With twists and turns around every corner, I had to keep reading to unravel the mystery. I like a story where you don’t know who is behind it and this one doesn’t disappoint.
I once again fell in love with the characters—Addy, Beau, and Dimitri. They’re solid and come alive on the page. However, I found myself rooting for Team Beau, but we’ll have to wait for Darkwater Truth before we find out who she chooses!
It’s apparent the author has done her homework with the research of New Orleans, Mardi Gras, voodoo, and the royalty of Liechtenstein. This brings the novel to life and the reader can picture exactly what the character sees. Awesome writing!
I really enjoy this series and look forward to the final installment.
I give Darkwater Lies four Mardi Gras beads. The mystery takes you to the heart of New Orleans and grabs you by the throat!
