A murder investigation uncovers sordid secrets and haunting mistakes
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?

It's been a long time since I've read a novel by Robin Caroll, and reading her new release, which is the first of her Darkwater Inn series, reminded me why I enjoy her novels so much.
The New Orleans setting of this book is both mysterious and intriguing.
Every time I read the name Pampalon I was reminded of my birth mother. Her last name was Pampolina, and my biological father was an ancestor of the Trizini's who designed the house used in the Steel Magnolia's movie, which is in Natchitoches, Louisiana, a location used in the book.
Reading this book for me was a peek into my birth family's history, and interestingly it felt like home.
Ms. Caroll creates a very realistic setting. With customs, food, celebrations, the folkways of voodoo,
made me feel as though I was in the middle of the historic French Quarter.
My Bottom Line:
- print copy of Darkwater Secrets
- your own key to the Darkwater Inn
- a soy-based, French Quarter candle
