LAURA CAYOUETTE

In this second installment of the local best-seller Charlotte Reade Mystery series, Charlotte helps her costar, Mad Men’s Bryan Batt, track down a stalker.

Leaving the “glamour” of eighteen years in Los Angeles behind, actor/producer Charlotte Reade is making a fresh start in her family home of New Orleans. As she settles into her new life, Charlotte experiences vivid moments at French Quarter Fest, Jazz Fest and the spectacular Mardi Gras Indians’ Super Sunday. But not all is well as the shock and despair of the Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent BP oil spill settle over the region and local police search for a missing Production Assistant who came to “Hollywood South” with big dreams. 

Charlotte lands a part working with Bryan Batt and stumbles onto a potential stalker. While researching her role, Charlotte finds clues to her own family mystery and the eerie chandelier with a habit of moving on its own. Working with Bryan, Charlotte finds herself helping to track down the stalker while meeting colorful local characters and hoping to finally find her match.

"The novel brims with interesting characters and an engaging mystery to boot. I highly recommend this book."
