Long and Short Reviews

“An engaging mystery with a touch of romance and a twist of Southern charm.”
—Nancy Atherton, New York Times bestselling author of the Aunt Dimity series

Plantation Shudders is a delight—a fast, fun read. Ellen Byron is a new cozy voice with a charming Southern accent. You’ll love this novel and its colorful Louisiana characters.”
—Elaine Viets, author of Checked Out, a Dead-End Job mystery

“When love goes wrong, aspiring artist Maggie Crozat heads back to the bayou to become a modern-day belle with a mission to keep the family’s historic plantation financially afloat. A jambalaya of colorful friends and relatives, plus scrumptious Cajun cooking and a basset hound named Gopher make Pelican, Louisiana as southern as good manners and Spanish Moss. But before long, there’s murder under the magnolias, and Maggie must spring into action. I love a mystery that’s a gumbo of wit, charm, and plenty of heart. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
—Nancy Martin, author of The Blackbird Sisters Mystery Series

“You will definitely want to check into Ellen Byron’s Plantation Shudders where she serves up a tasty Louisiana style gumbo of mystery, humor and good ole’ Southern charm. It goes down easy and leaves you hungry for more.”
—Lee Hollis, author of Death of a Kitchen Diva

“A delightful journey through Cajun Country with a charming new heroine.”
—Connie Archer, author of A Spoonful of Murder
