Darkwater Secrets Blitz - Excerpt!



Excerpt

Dimitri  turned  and  almost  choked  on  his  sparkling  water.  He  couldn’t  take  his  eyes  off  Adelaide  as  she  floated  down  the  stairs.  His  mouth  went  dry.  As  he  came  to  his  senses  and  glanced  around,  he  realized  that  the  women  seemed  to  have  the  same  effect  on  most  of  the  men  watching  them  enter.   

Dimitri  made  his  way  to  offer  his  arm  to  them  as  they  descended.  “Ladies.”

“Hello,  Dimitri.  You  remember  my  friend  Tracey?”

He  offered  his  other  arm  to  Tracey.  “I  do.  Both  of  you  ladies  look  absolutely  stunning  this  evening.”

He  spoke  to  them  both  as  he  led  them  toward  the  spread  of  food,  but  his  heart  pounded  as  Adelaide  smiled  at  him.  As  beautiful  as  she  looked  right  now,  it  was  hard  for  him  to  remember  she  wasn’t  ready  for  romance.  He’d  agreed  to  wait,  but  the  way  she  looked  .  .  .  his  work  was  certainly  cut  out  for  him.




The Darkwater Inn stands tall and proud in the French Quarter, the hub of New Orleans. Bourbon Street is bustling, and General Manager Adelaide Fountaine has her hands full with a hotel at capacity. She, along with everyone else, is shocked when a body is found: a hotel guest stabbed with a kitchen knife.

Detective Beau Savoie, Adelaide’s childhood friend, is on the case. As Beau digs into the victim’s past, he unearths a shocking connection between Adelaide and the murdered guest. Beau is hurt that his friend—the woman he’s quietly loved for years—kept the truth from him. To make matters worse, the stress of the investigation has sent Adelaide right into the comforting arms of her coworker Dimitri. But Beau can’t press Adelaide too hard . . . he’s keeping secrets of his own.

Can Adelaide and Beau afford to hide from the truth with a killer on the loose?
