THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
A new author for and the fourth books in this series. I was able to follow the events as it works well as a standalone. The town of Pelican, Louisiana is slowly recovering from the flood and preparing to celebrate Mardi Gras. Corset Plantation B&B has no guests because of the flood. A body is found washed up near a bridge on The Crozet's land. The main events are the Gumbo Cooking contest and the selection of Miss Pelican Mardi Gras Gumbo Queen, a highly sought crown. The is a discussion on the exhibit of the Orphan that came from the New York area. Maggie Crozet decides to investigate the train. What part does the train have today? Who is the body and why was he shot. The ending will surprise. I highly recommend this book and series. Cajon recipes are included. Disclosure: Many thanks to Crooked Lane Books for a review copy.
