Book Back:
With Halloween barely a week away, Carmela’s friend Ava throws a favulous party, complete with a sexy tarot reader names Giovanni. What he doesn’t foretell is that on her way home Carmela will find the body of a beautiful model – and be attacked herself.

Giovanni is ther to save her – but he has a tricky way of dodging certain questions. Ava and Carmela have
Plenty of other strange leads to follow up on, like the horrifying teeth marks around the victim’s neck and the nonhuman hairs found at the crime scene. As the witching hour draws closer, Carmela must discover what’s lurking in the shadows of the French Quarter – or get the fright of her life…..

I love this series (I admit I haven’t read her Tea Shop series). It set in New Orleans as usual soon after the Hurricane Katrina has left. Things seem to be getting back to normal as far as business is concern. Carmela in her Scrapbooking store and Ava with her Voodoo store.

Ava has a wonderful store party soon before Halloween to help get in the “Spirit”. On her way home Carmela discovers a body and is attacked from behind. Giovanni comes to her rescue.

Soon after Ava and Carmela are on the case to find out how the murder happened and who attacked Carmela. Of course there are roadblocks along the way, but none that can be solved.
