Publisher's Summary

"The ground is too wet...If you bury the dead here, they can come back." Her father always warned her that the bayou was a mysterious and dangerous place. She never suspected that the greatest danger of her life was lurking in New York City. Before their bags are unpacked one of two Cajun girls in fresh from Louisiana is found savagely murdered in New York. All the clues point to a wild animal, a perplexing development for a third floor apartment. Lacking a suspect the police accompany the murdered girl's French speaking roommate back to her reclusive Southern Louisiana town in search of a lead. They are met with a warning that the killer is not finished yet and learn that this is not the first mysterious death in the family.

Wonderful Cajun Novella!

If you could sum up To Murder a Saint in three words, what would they be?

Creepy Cajun Mystery


What other book might you compare To Murder a Saint to and why?

It reminded me of the Cajun characters in the Sookie Stackhouse series. But really, this book is unique in so many ways it is hard to compare to any other book. Refreshingly original.


Which character – as performed by Suzy Lexington – was your favorite?

Fanchon was my favorite. Suzy Lexington brought her feisty character to life.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me gasp with surprise at the ending.


Any additional comments?

To Murder a Saint is done to perfection. A fast paced story with so many twists and turns it's like trying to follow a 'gator through a bayou. At night. Without a flashlight. I was so happy to see there are more books in this series. I hope Fanchon and Banyan are in the next ones.

Amusing implausible mystery novella

Two best friends, Josephine and Fanchon, move from Louisiana Cajun country to NYC. At Josephine's urging, Fanchon goes out on a date with a guy encountered on am internet dating website. Upon her return home, she discovers the dismembered body of Josephine.

The detective , Banyon, assigned to investigate accompanies Fanchon as she brings her friend's body home to Louisiana and standard chuckles ensue as he meets the stereotypical natives.

Returning to NYC, Fanchon stumbles upon the real murderer and Banyon charges in yo assist her. It could be that this book hit me at just the right time as I laughed out loud several times while reading it and listening to it. I would tend to characterize it as a cozy mystery although the set-up and denouement is more bizarre than the standard cozy.

I read this through whispersync and thoroughly enjoyed the narrsyot and her voices. I bought the kindle book and received the Audible book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine alone.
