SECRETS, LIES, & CRAWFISH by Abby L. Vandiver


The first book in a new series and a new author to me. It well was written and the descriptions will take you to Louisiana and French Creole culture.. The protagonist, Romaine Wilder is a medical examiner, she had been working in the Chicago area but lost her position. She has returned to her hometown Robel in East Texas. She is planning on leaving Robel as very soon and missing Her married boyfriend. Her Aunt Zanny owns a funeral home there. Aunt Zanny’s antics had me laughing. After a storm, an extra body is found at the home all ready for burial. Romaine efforts to find out how the body was placed in the home, who he was, how he died will hold your interest. Aunt Zanny is chairman of the annual Tri-County Annual Crawfish Boil and Music Festival and her demands keep Romaine busy. Romaine cousin,  Pogue Folsom has been elected Sheriff and Romaine works with him on the investigation.
