Book Description

31 Mar 2009 Bayou Books
Roche Savage is a dedicated, talented psychiatrist with a life-shattering secret: his sexuality isn't just vibrant, it's over-the-top. He's always avoided gentle, reserved women because he knows that if he lets himself get out of control he could frighten them--or worse. Unfortunately, he can't seem to stop thinking about Bleu Labeau, a reticent teacher who has come to Toussaint to start a new school in St. Cecil's parish. Bleu suffers the psychological consequences of being the widow of a man who taught her that sex was dirty, wrong and best performed in the dark.

Father Cyrus Payne, the priest at St. Cecil's, is busy with his new school project, but still can't keep his assistant Madge Pollard off his mind. He has decided to push her into dating other men. The results only deepen Father Cyrus's struggle to choose between the church and the woman he loves.

The new school project has also brought to Toussaint an evil, violent presence. When a man is killed in St. Cecil's church, panic spreads. More murders follow, and the victims are all significant contributors to the church's new school. With little help from the FBI, the local sheriffand the townspeople are left to fend for themselves.

Taking the lead, Roche Savage and Bleu Labeau race to unravel the mystery before another person is forced to have the school pamphlet as their last meal. But when it is revealed that all the victims are former patients of Roche, Bleu and the rest of the town realize that they may not be looking for a stranger...but one of their very own.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blech 14 Jan 2009
By Rhonda - Published on Amazon.com
This book is awful. What a mess. The "plot" is meandering and makes no sense. The characters are one deminsional. The Roche/Bleu (who comes up with these names???) plot line feels like it started in the middle; like I missed 4-5 chapters. And Madge/Cyrus? Puuuleeeese. Who can believe this. And when the killer is revealed it's just stupid. Makes no sense (oh wait I probably said that already). Sorry, but I can't recommend this to anyone. Thank goodness I got it out of the library and didn't waste my money on it. Cameron's books blow hot and cold for me. But after this, I don't think I'll bother with any other of her books. I would give it NO stars, but I had to rate it something.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cypress Nights 23 Oct 2008
By mombo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Cypress Nights was not one of my favorites from Ms. Cameron. I liked her earlier straight mystery suspense. Parts of this one were too predictable with Father Cyrus and the gossippy housekeeper and her husband, the tale starter. Also, if Wazoo is a physic why does she have no idea about the strange goings in the bayou with boats and sand bags? Dialog was somewhat choped and simplistic at times. I really liked her earlier titles Target and French Quarter much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars fast-paced serial killer thriller 7 Aug 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
The residents of Toussaint, Louisiana are rightfully upset and frightened to learn someone was murdered in St. Cecil's Church. Soon afterward the fear factor turns stratospheric, as more people die. The divided community knows the homicides are connected to the new school and teacher Bleu Labeau.

Over the edge over the deaths, Bleu also realizes she must be the target too of this serial killer. However, it is her feelings for her self anointed protector Dr. Roche Savage that frightens her most and not just because she mistrusts herself when it comes to men; she has learned that everyone who has been killed was his patient.

Fans will enjoy the return to Toussaint (see A MARKED MAN and A GRAVE MISTAKE) with this fast-paced serial killer thriller. The key to CYPRESS NIGHTS is the lead couple as she has to decide whether to trust her heart or the circumstantial evidence; a wrong choice by Bleu probably means death. However, Stella Cameron never takes her eyes off the ball as she uses the romantic subplot as support to the prime murder mystery. Ms. Cameron's fans will enjoy the steamy nights in the bayou where either love or murder occur.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have read the reviews first 11 Sep 2009
By Windy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I think I might not have bothered with this book if I had read the reviews first. Thank goodness it was a library book, not one I purchased. I plodded along, then put it down, then picked it up again and finally skipped a lot of it to reach the end. I didn't realize it was part of a series, but kept thinking the situation with the priest and his secretary sounded familiar. For the woman who wanted more of the story of the priest and his secretary, she should read "Judged by Love," a 2004 biography of William X. Kienzle, the former priest who wrote the Father Robert Koesler mysteries. This was written by his wife, Javan Kienzle and is a beautiful story.
