Meg's Review:

I started this series out of order and was super excited to do a read through from start to finish. Even though the books can be done out of order, but I recommend reading them start to finish. Ok, back to the story. Having started from the middle of this series I LOVED getting to meet everyone from the start. I fell right in love with these enigmatic characters all over again. This story wraps you up and keeps your attention. Taking place in New Orleans, this story is written with a wonderful backdrop for its emotional story. I feel for Oz. Like really hard. He is just such a funny and lovable character. I adored his personality and I was torn on the situation of the story. You felt for him though. Adrienne. Her situation tore at me as well. I was sympathetic for parts of her and I also didn't favor her for many other reasons. She, and her situation, are just one of those things that pull you both ways. You will form your own opinions. This is one of those novels that is extremely relatable to everyday young love, but with a twist. Sarah1 The story is a great read. It feels a lot longer than it actually is. In the best type of way. Love a very complicated love triangle? What about a NA with a paranormal twist? How about an extremely well written book that just grips you page by page and wraps up quote nicely? This book is for you. Sarah M. Cradit is one of those authors that can open your eyes to a completely new genre.

Synopsis:

A father’s threats. A tragic accident. Unanswered questions. Oz Sullivan has finally moved past the tangled web surrounding his brief, but intense, relationship with the young, impetuous Adrienne Deschanel. Through his family, and successful career as an attorney, he has forged a tranquil predictability.

Then Adrienne unexpectedly emerges, with no memory of the life she once led. Her desperate attempt to flee the confusing and dark influences in the bayou instinctively propels her to the one face for which she has a name. Oz’s world is once again turned upside down, as he must decide how to help her without losing himself entirely.

Set amidst the lush and vibrant backdrop of New Orleans, St. Charles at Dusk tells the story of Oz and Adrienne; of forbidden love, and startling heartbreak.
