This is the first book I've read by Tami Hoag and I wasn't disappointed. :-)
Serena Sheridan's grandfather disappears into the vast and infamous swamps of Louisiana for no apparent reason. Serena feels she really should find him as she's extremely worried about him. So she leaves her successful career as a psychologist.
Serena knows this is hostile territory, so she finds herself a guide, he's called Lucky Doucet and he's a dangerous Cajun who offers very little protection in the Bayou swamps. Serena's very determined to find her grandfather so she sets off with Lucky on a journey into the watery maze.
On her journey Serena gets herself into trouble before she finds her grandfather and she tries to persuade him to go home with her. Serena has also got more then she bargained for with Lucky Doucet!
When Serena gets back to civilisation she finds out that there is a traitor who has been staring up trouble right from the start, so now she needs to sort that out.
I don't want to say anything else as it will spoil it for you.
The author grips you right for the start, her charters have great personalities and excellent depth.:-) I also love her description of the interesting swamps of Louisiana, you feel as your there with Serena. :-)
I found this to be a compulsive, easy and enjoyable read.:-) Only took me a couple of hours to read as I just couldn't put this book down. Some people would find this a great holiday read, it's so easy to get hooked into. :-)
