A Secrets, Spells and Snake Eyes secret!
Sarah's 2nd journey is complete and makes her stronger for the challenges she'll face in her journey, part 3!
This one took a while to birth, but I hope it was worth the wait! A hint: Sarah is kidnapped.
Thank you for reading the Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis Mysteries!

My writing coach says the first line of each chapter should be interesting. Here are two of mine and a few from authors I've met and enjoy!
Whoever invented body language was full of shit.
Secrets, Spells and Snake Eyes
I woke up to the smell of Manuel, a soft mix of day-old Acqua di Parma Colonia Ambra and sweat.
Secrets, Spells and Snake Eyes
Payton sat on her sofa, watching a DVR episode of Zane’s Sex Chronicles, a Friday night ritual when she didn’t have a date.
Lisa Renee Johnson, Dangerous Consequences
A symphony of taxi horns echoing off the walls outside my window woke me up early Monday morning.
Susan Shea, The King’s Jar.
If I’d known my clothes would be covered in blood by the end of the evening, I probably wouldn’t have agonized over my wardrobe selection.
Cindy Sample, Dying for a Date
My break is over! Back to writing and researching!

When scandal robs you of your family therapy practice? You dust off your psychic gifts and solve crimes; right?
If you're Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis you do.
In Secrets, Spells and Snake Eyes, Sarah comes into her own as an amateur sleuth. A sociopath, a washed up P.I. and a criminal combine sketchy clues with her gift of visions in order to save the life of a framed young man. Sarah and her rag-tag team of investigators will take you on a wild ride.
It's martini Sundays with the girls and the re-appearance of her nemesis, cousin Stacy from Louisiana (we can't stand her...). Creole crazy lined with danger.
I hope you will enjoy the journey and continue to follow Sarah's evolution.

If there is a god, I think she’ll say; tell me how you helped another today
and if there’s a god, I think he’ll ask; where do we place your momentous task?
and if there is a god, it will surely be; a compilation of you and me,
and of all beings and living things, an amalgamation of life, this being brings
to challenge the notions of you and me that some are more and others less
and life is only what we see.
the values we create, reflections of the lives we fake
to make us feel when feeling ends
to cause of an inappropriate peace
I think there is a God, it’s the one I see
in my children’s eyes when they look at me.
It’s the man who saves a shattered life, the woman who shields another from strife.
God never begins or ends with us, God is a mist, an eternal dust
that needs no form to make us know
that only life is an eternal flow
from form to amorphous, our lives will be
the place where God meets the eternal me.

If you're Creole or Cajun, you don't go to the supermarket...or do your grocery shopping...
You go "make" groceries!
"Make" is a transalation of the French, faire or do. Creole and Cajun French are infused with French, Spanish and some African languages.
In my mystery, Pushed Times, Chewing Pepper, heroine Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis can make a mean gumbo!
But first she gotta go "make" groceries, mon cher!
