Heather Haven about this book: The first time my husband and I visited New Orleans, I knew I wanted to write a book about the city. After the initial shock and realization that we almost lost this beautiful, historic city to a hurricane and bad state planning, I wanted to celebrate its Phoenix-like rise from decimation. In this story, I involved the entire Alvarez Family from beginning to end. I also ratcheted up the relationship between Lee Alvarez, the protagonist, and the man in her life, Gurn Hanson. Although, their love affair will never, never be in the forefront of the stories - these are mysteries, after all - I believe it is always good to show Characters learning and growing. Along the learning lines, it is a rare day the Alvarez Clan doesn't learn a life-lesson or two as they go along, just like the rest of us. My goal as a writer is to show as many aspects of life as I can, but in particular, the loving side that makes all of us who we are.
