    Formerly engaged, CoCo LeBlanc and Luc Trahan are working together to discover who murdered Luc's grandfather. Both had what the sheriff deems strong motives, so they join forces to prove their innocence. As time wears on, however, CoCo and Luc are also trying to fight the potent rekindled feelings they're both experiencing. Bayou Justice (4 1/2-Stars Romantic Times Review and Top Pick for October), by Robin Caroll, is a solid story that has a powerful emotional edge, as well as compelling secondary characters. The parallel stories of Luc and CoCo's relationship and the solving of the murder are excellently handled. Reviewer—Robin Taylor
