Summary
Caren Gray is the manager of former sugarcane plantation Belle Vie, now a tourist attraction and banquet hall, when a body is found on the grounds. Caren's ties to Belle Vie run deep--her ancestor Jason was a slave there at the time of the Emancipation. Knowing Belle Vie's secrets gives Karen an edge in solving the crime--and uncovering another murder from the past—even as it puts her own life in danger.
Critique
This smart, award-winning literary mystery is an absorbing, well-written, and atmospheric read.
