Meg's Review:

I have dubbed this book "All About Anne" I think it flows. Now In my series read, I read this book second. If you loved the first novel you will love the novella just as much. This novel takes place a couple of years after the first novel. You don't "have" to read the first book, but it was nice to kinda know the characters. Since Adrienne's return people have been coming out of the woodwork claiming to have been a part of her previous life. Enter Anne. With the passing of her mother she sets out to find her sister and discover the secrets of her strange powers. A Wonderful read that kept my attention and interest all through the novella. a #MustRead.


Following the death of her dominating mother, Anne Fontaine decides to leave the bayou to reconnect with her estranged half-sister, Adrienne Deschanel. Her hope is to forge a relationship with Adrienne that was not possible when her mother was alive. Secretly, she also hopes to find out if her extraordinary supernatural talents are shared by anyone else.

When Nicolas Deschanel gets wind of Anne's presence, he suspects that she is one of many con artists after his sister's money. Not knowing that her story is true, he engages in a game of cat-and-mouse with her, deciding to have a little fun.

Eventually, circumstances find both of them back at the Deschanel family seat, Ophélie, where secrets and stories come to life.
