When New Orleans businessman Errol Petrie hires Celina Payne to represent "Dreams"--a company that caters to the whims of the wealthy and uses the profits to fund the wishes of dying children--her newfound happiness is soon shattered by Petrie's untimely death. Review
Stella Cameron's French Quarter is an entertaining and suspenseful romantic thriller that offers something for everyone: murder, passion, lust, greed, organized crime, and political ambition, all skillfully blended and served up with a Cajun flair.

In contemporary New Orleans, beautiful and talented former Miss Louisiana Celena Payne is thrown into an uneasy partnership with Jack Charbonnet when a mutual friend, Errol Petrie, is killed. As the two slowly piece together a complex puzzle of murder and intrigue, Celena fears for her safety as enemies begin to emerge, including her own ne'er-do-well parents, an ambitious politician with his own plans for her, and the vicious gangsters linked to Jack through his parents' mob connections. Her growing feelings for Jack are mingled with a distrust that she must overcome, while Jack's own tormented past just may keep him from Celena's arms.

For readers who like their murder mysteries enlivened with a touch of steamy romance, French Quarter is a fast-paced and engaging choice. The perfect summer read. --Lisa Wanttaja
