USA Today bestselling author Ellen Byron is back
at it with fan-favorite plantation B&B owner Maggie
Crozat in a fourth installment of the Cajun Country mysteries.
Southern charm meets the dark mystery of the bayou as a
hundred-year flood, a malicious murder, and a most unusual
Mardi Gras converge at the Crozat Plantation B&B.
It’s Mardi Gras season on the bayou, which means parades,
pageantry, and gumbo galore. But when a flood upends life in
the tiny town of Pelican, Louisiana—and deposits a body of a
stranger behind the Crozat Plantation B&B—the
celebration takes a decidedly dark turn. The citizens of
Pelican are ready to Laissez les bon temps rouler—but
there’s beaucoup bad blood on hand this Mardi Gras.
Maggie Crozat is determined to give the stranger a name and
find out why he was murdered. The post-flood recovery has
delayed the opening of a controversial exhibit about the
little-known Louisiana Orphan Train. And when a judge for
the Miss Pelican Mardi Gras Gumbo Queen pageant is shot,
Maggie’s convinced the murder is connected to the body on
the bayou. Does someone covet the pageant queen crown enough
to kill for it? Could the deaths be related to the Orphan
Train, which delivered its last charges to Louisiana in
1929? The leads are thin on this Fat Tuesday—and until the
killer is unmasked, no one in Pelican is safe.
A simmering gumbo of a humorous whodunit, Mardi Gras
Murder is the fourth piquant installment in USA
Today bestselling author Ellen Byron’s award-winning
Cajun Country mysteries.
