They say it's about the journey, not the destination...

Charlene "Charlie" Moreau is back in St. Francisville, Louisiana, to work on a movie.

One night, she stumbles across the body of a Civil War reenactor, the second murdered in two days. Charlie is shocked to learn that her father a guide on the Journey, a historic paddle wheeler that's sponsoring the reenactment is a suspect. Meanwhile, Ethan Delaney, new to the FBI's Krewe of Hunters, is brought in on the case.

He and Charlie have a history of their own, dating back to when he rescued her from a graveyard led there by a Confederate ghost! Charlie arranges a Mississippi River cruise so she and Ethan can get close to the reenactors, find out who knows what, who has a motive.

They discover a lot more as they resume the relationship that ended ten years ago but might die, along with them, on the Journey.

    This is not my usual kind of book I like to read and I ended up really enjoying it. Intriguing for sure!

    Gave up on this story too boring. I thought the narrator did a great job though.

  • Charlene C

    Great Civil War history. Loved the ghosts. Story was roo slow and predictable. Fast ending--no fun.

  • Heleen W

    The book is too slow for my style. I had trouble listening to narrator.

  • Jim M

    Weak plot, plodding narration. All the action in last twenty minutes of book. Narrator had same voice for all characters. Book was a free download and overpriced at that.

  • Matt G

    Some cool settings, some silly (easy to skip) romance sequences, a hint of some cool history, and a frustrating ending.

  • Natalie M

    This book was super corny, like a soap-opera soft-core porn type read. I'm sure some people would love it but I found it repetitive and the ending wasn't that great. *Spoiler alert* the killer wasn't mentioned until you found out who it was at the end. Like why do I care he did it? I don't even know who that character is??

    I kept listening mainly because I wanted to see "who did it" but it was an effort. I live in the south and thought the accents were way overdone. I love historical fiction but not make believe ghost soldiers. From the other reviews, apparently others enjoyed it but it wasn't for me.

    Great history lesson, dragged a bit with lots of characters to keep track of. A little cliché-ish, but kept me company on a couple long drives. Narrator had too many voices to do with so many characters, kind of ran together.
