5.0 out of 5 stars Black Creoles and romance are in full force in the Bayou!, 15 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Sweet Mystery (Arabesque Romance) (Paperback)
When Raenette Dalcour comes home to Belle Rose, Louisana to bury her father she is not at first prepared to tackle her grandfather's disapperance 50 years ago nor prove to the town that the Dalcours are upstanding citizens deserving of the town's respect. But that is what she has to prove when the circumstances of the disapperance of her grandfather and her enemy's grandmother becomes the focal point of the town. When she meets Simon St. Cyr sparks fly and the feud the Dalcours had with the Joves and the St. Cyrs becoems a focal point. Simon wants Raenette and he won't let old garbage stop him from pursuing her. Of course he has to contend with his ex-wife, Tanya Jove and the rest of the grudge-bearing town. Raenette opens a dance-hall and uses her musician influences to help bring tourism and prosperity to Belle Rose. And then all the trouble begins. Who is trying to sabotage her? This flavor is rich with the flavor or the bayou. You can almost taste the oyster and shrimp po' boys. Ms. Emery has captured the style and language of the people of this region with French and Creole phrases and mannerisms. My favorite new repsonse to something negative is now "Pooh ya!. There are plenty of stories relating to the Cajuns of Southwest Louisians, but rarely do we hear about the French-speaking black Creoles of that area. I hop to see more stories of this nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lynn Emery writes heart-stopping romances!, 11 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Sweet Mystery (Arabesque Romance) (Paperback)
Sweet Mystery is the latest from Lynn Emery, who writes captivating, page-turning African-American romances. Her books really capture the culture and history of Louisiana, as well as spin interesting tales and steamy romances, and Sweet Mystery is no different. I hated putting it down. If you like Louisiana bayou stories, especially ones dealing with black Creoles and the unique culture surrounding them, don't miss Sweet Mystery.
