Charlie Cooper, reluctant teacher by day and broken-hearted wanderer by night, is a man desperately in love with a dead woman.
But is Angeline St. Cyr really dead?
The supermodel fell victim to an auto-pedestrian accident in New Orleans. Police reports and medical records substantiate the severity of her injuries. Cosmetics mogul Mathieu Fournier, her former boss, orchestrated a cremation and memorial service. The paparazzi swarmed celebrity attendees. Fans mourned.
Call it gut instinct, but Cooper is convinced Angeline’s death was an elaborate scheme that Fournier sold to the world. But Cooper isn’t buying it, nor is his heart.
A tenuous lead draws him to the Caribbean island of Jacqueme Dominique. Only Cooper isn’t alone in his quest. By chasing his dream of rekindled love, he becomes embroiled in murder, treachery, and abduction at the hands of his old nemesis Willem Voorhees…a merciless killer.
For five long years Cooper’s love survived while he searched for Angeline. Will finding her cost him his life?
This is the second book I have read by this author. Her first book was titled Hoodoo Money.
Charlie finally finds his wife after believing she has been dead for 5 years. The author takes you to a getaway to a tropical paradise and involves mystery, suspense and action. The book does move a little slow for my taste in the beginning, but picks up about halfway through. It has a wonderful mystery in the plot that keeps you guessing until the end. It also has rekindled love that you will find touching. If you like mysteries, then this is an excellent book to read. The author made it flow nicely and knows how to write.
Very Good! Worth Spending Your Money on!
