St. Charles at Dusk is the House of Crimson & Clover Series prequel, and can be enjoyed as a standalone story, or as an introduction to the series. You might also enjoy Beyond Dusk: Anne, the follow-up novelette.
A father's threats. A tragic accident. Unanswered questions. Oz Sullivan has finally moved past the tangled web surrounding his brief, but intense, relationship with the young, impetuous Adrienne Deschanel. Through his family, and successful career as an attorney, he has forged a tranquil predictability.
Then Adrienne unexpectedly emerges, with no memory of the life she once led. Her desperate attempt to flee the confusing and dark influences in the bayou instinctively propels her to the one face for which she has a name. Oz's world is once again turned upside down, as he must decide how to help her without losing himself entirely.
Set amidst the lush and vibrant backdrop of New Orleans, St. Charles at Dusk tells the story of Oz and Adrienne; of forbidden love, and startling heartbreak.

Really Intriguing Mystery

Audiobook - Narration, LC Kane, Really Good. Good pacing, nice southern drawl, good storytelling.

This story was really different to me. It was a heartbreaking romance, but also very much a mystery. It takes place in different time periods and moves back and forth through those times, giving you background that relates to what's happening in the modern day.

I have to admit that I was kind of lost in the beginning and had to go back and listen again (but at least I wanted to listen again). I didn't really understand who was who at first and when it started to come together for me, I quickly went back and re-listened to the beginning. The story of Oz and Adrienne is a complex web of mystery, lies, betrayal and heartbreak and once I figured out who everyone was, I was enthralled right to the end and really enjoyed the descriptive narrative of New Orleans, the gardens, the people - all just beautifully painted with words. Lovely story!

Emotional Roller-coaster

Any additional comments?

A prequel to the House of Crimson and Clover. Beautifully well written story.

Love, heartbreak, suspense, secrets, loss, drama, mystery and a HEA all woven into another great edition to the series.

This is Adrienne Deschanel and Oz Sullivan's story which was only alluded to before.
Oz and Adrienne had a past relationship. When Adrienne disappeared it almost destroyed Oz. She has lost her memory and has been missing for 3 years. Suddenly Oz gets a phone call from Adrienne. She's alive. The story is told in the present and through flashbacks.

All of the characters in this series are so well crafted, thought out and developed you cant help but become attached to them and their world.

This book gives you a lot of back history on the families. Which makes it easier to understand who all the characters are.

LC Kane did a fantastic job with the narration. Very pleasant voice that fits the story perfectly. Nice even pace, voice inflections at the right times. Great character voices. She conveys all the emotions of characters. Well done.
