Quote: “I leapt eagerly into books. The characters’ lives were so much more interesting than the lonely heartbeat of my own.” 

Summary:  Josie Moraine is the daughter of a well known French Quarter prostitute. But Josie wants nothing to do with that life, she wants out of the Big Easy. Caught up in a dream about going to an elite college out east, Josie’s world comes crashing in around her when a wealthy tourist mysteriously dies in the Quarter. 

Review: I had such high expectations going into this book. Her first book was so amazing lay good, I wasn’t sure if this book could compare but it certainly did. You can’t help but feel for Josie as the story progresses. She’s this sweet, determined, hard working girl who is determined to get out from under the shadow her mother has cast. She wants to go somewhere where no one will know who she is so she can get a fresh start. I loved it being set in New Orleans because it added so min culture to the story. All around it was a great read, a story that will make you feel something. 

Recommendation: Read it!!!
