Publisher's Summary

Discover New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen Rose’s brand-new series set in the sultry city of New Orleans and featuring a tough team of high-end private investigators who are after justice—no matter what they have to do to get it.

Good cops. Bad cops. Only one will win.

After completing her tours with the Marines in Iraq, Molly Sutton knew she could take down any bad guy she met. But when a family tragedy exposes the dark side of her local police, she joined up with her former CO Burke Broussard, who left New Orleans PD to set up a private investigative service for people who couldn’t find justice elsewhere.

Gabe Hebert saw the toll that working for the NOPD took on his dad and decided instead to make a name for himself as one of the best young chefs in the French Quarter. But when his father’s death is ruled a suicide after a deliberately botched investigation by his former captain, Gabe knows his dad stumbled onto a truth that someone wants silenced.

Gabe goes to his father’s best friend, Burke, for help. Burke assigns the toughest member of his team, Molly, to the case. Molly can’t believe she’s being asked to work with the smoking hot chef whose chocolate cake is not the only thing that makes her mouth water. Sparks fly as they follow the leads Gabe’s dad left them, unraveling a web of crimes, corruption, and murder that runs all the way to the top.

Disappointing

Very disappointed. Definitely not one of her best novels to date. Still one of my favorite authors though.

Love the new characters!

As always, Karen Rose weaves wonderful, special characters into a great story. I love the New Orleans setting where the Monteleon Hotel has personal memories for me.

Couldn't put it down!!

I listened to this audio book and finished it in less than two days. It was so good I couldn't put it down. It was funny, sad, intriguing and nail biting at times. I loved it! Can't wait to see some of the characters again especially the older ladies 😁

Total package

This was an enjoyable read. I dont know if the Louisiana accents were authentic but they added character to the listening experience. I enjoyed the many characters especially the main hero and heroine. They all had depth. The plot was good too. you were not really kept guessing about who the bad guys were as they were revealed pice but piece throughout the book with the final one at the end. But even that one was not much of a surprise. it was a long book but kept me entertained in a long drive. I recommend

Magnifique

Absolutely loved the storyline with the introduction of new characters and catching up with those from previous books. The narrator was awesome to keep the story moving with so many different characters and accents.

Started out great....

Overall the story and characters were great. For the first couple of hours, I thought this was her best book. But about a third of
the way in, it became like listening to an episode of Columbo. For those not old enough to know the show, it was about a rag
a muffin cop investigating murders. The only problem I had with it and this book is that I don't enjoy knowing who the bad
guy or guys are early on. Part of why mysteries are fun for me is that I like to try to figure out the who and why. I don't want
to know ahead of time. Though the characters in this book are interesting, it doesn't make up for this flaw. That being said
I listened to the entire book, and mostly enjoyed it.
