A poetically romantic mystery set in beautiful NOLA
Ahdieh is a master at creating an ambiance in her stories that pulls you in and doesn't let go. The few pages of the sample are enough to breathe life into the city that will be the stage for Celine and the other characters of The Beautiful. I'm a sucker for romantic mysteries and anything to do with the gorgeous Crescent City, so I was guaranteed to be intrigued just by that. Add in the little touches of Shakespeare and an unidentified fiend and I can't wait to read more of what Ahdieh has to offer.
