Product description


Praise for Body on the Bayou
Cozy readers who fell under the spell of the eccentric and charming Crozat family will welcome their return...Diane Mott Davidson and Lou Jane Temple fans will line up for this series.
--Library Journal

"A tight plot, an appealing setting, and a smart, good-hearted protagonist with a caring, supportive family and lots of friends give this story everything cozy readers could want."
--Publishers Weekly

"Who did the deadly deed? Often amusing characters and plenty of red herrings make Byron's second Cajun Country mystery an entertaining read."
--Kirkus Reviews

Body on the Bayou is a perfect mix of Southern charm, spicy people, fantastic food, and murder...Once again, Ellen Byron has given us a murder mystery masterpiece!
--Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick

Southern charm and humor permeate Ellen Byron's Body on the Bayou, a Louisiana murder mystery rife with suspenseful twists, relationship drama, and delectable cooking...Aside from the backdrop, the characters are the most compelling aspect of the novel, as even minor players possess unique and memorable personalities.
--Foreword Reviews, five-star review

Not only is the story a whole lot of fun to read, with a historical plantation setting, but there are also mouthwatering recipes for every reader to sink their teeth into.
--Suspense Magazine

Byron fills this mystery with delightful characters...The story flows nicely and the killer is a surprise.
--Noir Journal

Ellen Byron serves up a veritable feast of different characters, all twisting and turning to keep their own particular secrets hidden from those they would rather keep in the dark...If you like strong flavors in both your books and your food, then this is definitely for you.
--Criminal Element

"Byron shares an entertaining look at Southern small town life, with all its complications and friendships, good food, and mysteries while adding humor."
--Kings River Life Magazine
