Publisher Description

 It’s 1950, and as the French Quarter of New Orleans simmers with secrets, seventeen-year-old Josie Moraine is silently stirring a pot of her own. Known among locals as the daughter of a brothel prostitute, Josie wants more out of life than the Big Easy has to offer. She devises a plan get out, but a mysterious death in the Quarter leaves Josie tangled in an investigation that will challenge her allegiance to her mother, her conscience, and Willie Woodley, the brusque madam on Conti Street.

Josie is caught between the dream of an elite college and a clandestine underworld. New Orleans lures her in her quest for truth, dangling temptation at every turn, and escalating to the ultimate test.

With characters as captivating as those in her internationally bestselling novel Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets, lies, and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny.

Great book

Ruta Sepetys has me hooked! I just finished this book and I’ve now read all three of her books; this one, just like the other 2, was unique, but just as good. I was completely hooked. It was a mix of a romance, a murder mystery, and a girl trying to figure out her life (so relatable lol). So many different things going on at once and so many plot twists, I couldn’t put it down! Definitely recommend to anyone into mystery, but it’s just good book for anyone; You’ll love it!
