Along with her writing adventures, Laurie has been a NASA engineer, a past president of the Romance Writers of America, and is a mother and a grandmother. The restaurant she’d chosen, up the street from the Hotel Marchand where she was staying, had a charming Old World atmosphere and seemed bustling after the slump caused by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Fortunately this area of the city was higher than districts west of the river and hadn’t suffered as much flood damage.

The lack of electricity obviously hadn’t interrupted the Twelfth Night celebration going on in the hotel and spilling into the courtyard. Dancers frolicked in his path as he tried to get to his patio suite. He edged around the flagstone perimeter, which was dark enough to be spooky, tripped over an urn filled with flowers and got a mouthful of lilies as he muttered a curse.

Was a wonderful storyline and I have the whole series now, so it all fits together perfectly and each book is about a different character. Fabulous series. Yes, it met my expectations and more.

The third book in the Hotel Marchand continuity series, The Unknown Woman, is full of mystery and romance.

Kerry Johnston is in New Orleans for Twelfth night as a birthday gift from her friends in hopes to cheer her up after a bad year. Her week long stay starts out rather uneventful, but a death in the hotel she's staying at changes things significantly.

Matt Anderson, a wine connoisseur and reporter, is in New Orleans doing an article on the wine industry in the area. When he comes back to his hotel room one night and finds an unknown dead woman in his bed, he knows things are about to get complicated. Especially when Kerry comes to his aid.

Kerry identifies the mystery woman as a local waitress and voodoo queen she had just met. She had been drawn to the young woman at first meeting, so she finds herself trying to find out what really happened. Matt and Kerry both have some hurdles to overcome in their lives and somehow the dead woman had sensed that when she met each of them before her death. As Matt and Kerry join forces to uncover the truth about the dead woman, they uncover a few surprises about her... and themselves. How did the voodoo queen know they were the answer to each other's unspoken needs?

After being somewhat disappointed in the previous book in the Hotel Marchand series, I found myself enjoying The Unknown Woman. I found myself drawn to the story of Kerry and Matt, and the mysterious dead woman. It doesn't hurt that I'm a sucker for a story where voodoo comes into the equation. As Kerry and Matt uncover more about the young woman Kerry bonded with on their first meeting, the readers also learn a little more about her recent life and the beliefs and rituals of voodoo practitioners in New Orleans. This helps to paint a fuller picture explaining who exactly The Unknown Woman really was.

One thing I like about the series so far is the crossover of events between the books. All three occur simultaneously so we catch glimpses of what's happening from various points of view, even if they are only a passing mention. This adds a little more depth to the tale and provides a stronger link to the underlying plot line that connects everything.

Kerry and Matt's relationship grows at a steady pace over a short amount of time. As they spend more time together solving the mystery and putting the dead woman's affairs to rights, they learn quite a bit about themselves and each other. As such, our knowledge of their personality is shown to us, rather than told. I was left with the feeling at the end of the story, that even though Kerry and Matt's love affair began under very tense and unusual circumstances, what they feel for each other is real and true, and will break the boundaries keeping them apart until they find exactly what they need in each other's love.

White Bear Lake, Minnesotan native Kerry Johnston came to New Orleans to get away from the heartbreak of her fiancé of four years suddenly marrying someone else. However, the Big Easy though still recovering from Katrina is upbeat especially the French Quarter but even the voodoo fortune teller fails to move Kerry out of her doldrums.

Adding to her woes is a power failure that impacts the Hotel Marchand that she is staying at. She even hears the cursing and stumbling of the guy in the next room, who finds a corpse in his bed. Kerry goes over to help writer Matt Anderson, who is clueless as to how Patti the voodoo museum docent and waitress that both met earlier today ended in his bed. As Pattie showed kindness towards both of them, they mutually agree to investigate though neither knows how to conduct a homicide inquiry. One thing they do know is that Patti's healing spell works as Kerry and Matt fall in love.

The third Hotel Marchand contemporary romance is a fine atmospheric New Orleans amateur sleuth tale. Readers will agree with Patti's assessment when she met the lead couple (separately) that the sad duo would find love and happiness together. The story line is fast-paced as Matt and Kerry fumble their investigation while fostering their attraction and admiration for one another. Readers will appreciate the latest visit to the Hotel Marchand.

When the dead woman is the most interesting character (and dies in the first few pages), the reader is in trouble.

I had high hopes for this story, as I love New Orleans and its environs. But the city in this novel is bland and sterile. It's hard for me to imagine the author has even set foot in Louisiana. The smells, the sights, the culture, the architecture, the history, the food. Not in this story. The closest the author came to any real world-building was during a night-time Voodoo ceremony.

By and large, the romantic couple is as colorless as the city. The protagonists are drawn together in an effort to figure out who killed the woman, and give her ashes a proper send-off. The execution of the plot is disjointed. Mainly because the couple has to periodically stop all that running around, take a breath, and provide a sex scene.

I really enjoyed the first two books in the "Hotel Marchand" series and can highly recommend them. But this one I found the characters one dimensional and overly dramatic. The mystery itself was boring. I'm still planning on getting the next in the series though.
