Book Description:

My Review:
Reviewed by Sandra Olshaski

So Rick and Amelia have finally tied the knot in this book. Readers may know that there has been a simmering romance between these two in the last few books in the Amelia Moore Detective Series. Mr. And Mrs. Rick Bonito are partners in a private detective agency specializing in missing persons.

In this episode, Amelia and Rick are looking for an adopted child who may have a serious genetic disorder. Since the court won't reveal the identity of the adoptive parents, Amelia and Rick face a challenge. In pursuit of a lead, they travel to bayou country - Louisiana, USA. Curious twists and turns await them, including the disappearance of 3 teenagers following the homicide of a police officer in an Asian neighborhood. To quote from the book "....we have a missing boy, gang members, a murder, a kidnapping, and Tom's kayak floating down the bayou."

The food (gumbo, crawdads, and jambalaya) and the description of the bayous with the swamps and Spanish moss make the story authentic.

Rick and Amelia are engaging young married sleuths, full of heart. The author has done a wonderful job of their character development. I like them.

Each time I read this author I learn something and this book is no exception as she educates the reader about Marfan's syndrome.

As usual, I recommend this clean, romantic mystery.

Note: This book is rated G.
