Detailed ongoing nightmares motivate psychic Anabelle Sommerville to travel to New Orleans to try to understand her past life in Bourbon Street Burn: Sommerville Suspense by Anastasia Amor. With her present life eerily matching aspects of her past life almost 200 years earlier, renowned restaurateur Anabelle meets a Voodoo priest, ghosts, and even a vampire - all with ties to her life as New Orleans’ best chef Belle Duville. Travelling back in time, thinking she will observe what happened with the help of a unique New Orleans drink, a Sazerac, Anabelle is surprised to actually relive many horrifying events. Not sure whom she can trust, Anabelle depends on her abilities as a witch with a brown belt in karate, and makes sure she plays her cards close to the chest. What started out in the past is continuing to play out in the present, with more and more characters becoming involved in the mystery of hidden treasure, unfulfilled loves and unclaimed property. Anabelle has to keep her wits about her to ensure that she doesn’t fall victim to underhanded dealings a second time or, even worse, get stuck in the past.

New Orleans is the perfect setting for a great paranormal fiction fantasy story and Anastasia Amor uses every bit of it to the fullest in Bourbon Street Burn: Sommerville Suspense. Amor captures the present ambiance of the city, along with the historical allure, with strong characters and an exciting plot. The blending of the two lifelines provides plenty of interest while keeping you guessing exactly what stakes each person has in the overall outcome of the adventure. A great read with excitement, intrigue, action and lust galore; you will be sorry to come to the end, wishing there could be more.
