Crescent City Confidential pulled me into the wonderful sights, sounds and smells of New Orleans. I was totally captivated by the city and the story of mystery writer Sam and her growing love for the place and for a certain lady. Tess shucks oysters by day and is a singer by night. Neither woman is on the lookout for something serious or permanent so a few dates together works fine for both. Will that be enough as time goes on? Sam has a few secrets and it was interesting seeing how she dealt with them. Tess had some issues from the past to deal with too. Both had to get to a stage where they were ready to move to the next step. I liked how their deepening relationship was developed. It was slow burning but romantic and sexy too. A mystery thrown into the mix really piqued my interest.
I was given this ARC free by Netgalley and Bold Strikes books in return for an honest review.
