REVIEW: Hang on to your pants! Crescent City Sin by Nola Nash is going to take you on the ride of your life. I absolutely loved this book and recommend you get it for yourself immediately. I can’t be any clearer than that. Just in time for Halloween! Just in time to scare you out of your pants.
This is book two to of the Crescent City Series with Crescent City Moon being book one. This second book is even more fabulous than the first book! The love story is magnificent. There is a magic about it that I fell in love with.
I was so involved with the story and I didn’t get distracted with looking up information about the city of New Orleans. I couldn’t! I had to know what was happening with the characters. Nola really honed in on the story drawing your attention to details. In my opinion her story telling went through the roof with this book. Great job Nola Nash!
If you love stories about witches, ghosts, spells, family secrets and love, you will enjoy this book. I am anxiously waiting for book three.
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review.
SYNOPSIS: In the Crescent City, darkness blurs the lines between sinners and saints.
Having been brought back through the veil after her death, Zéolie wakes to find she’s being cared for by the mother superior. Secrets are slowly revealed as Mother Micheaux explains her connection to the past Zéolie’s father kept hidden all her life. Once her strength has returned, Zéolie tries to ease back into her home and life without Louis, but soon finds herself helping a young man who mistakenly shows up at her house looking for his long-lost mother. Feeling compassion for the young man who is far from his home in France, she and the Marchon girls attempt to help him locate his mother while making him feel welcome.
Julien, the young man, finds himself strangely drawn to Zéolie and slowly loses his heart to her, but his feelings aren’t returned when Zéolie makes a new discovery that changes her life once more. Jilted, Julien unleashes his grief in the form of magical power he didn’t know he had and finds comfort in the friendship of a local madame. Out of control and angry, he succumbs to the darkness inside of him and the taunting voice of a raging spirit hungry for revenge.
Can Zéolie and her magical menagerie pull Julien back from the edge of hell, or will the past take them all down? Walk down the gritty dark streets of 1830s New Orleans where the line between sinner and saint is as blurred as the line between life and death.
