New Orleans romance

And now, a little plug for a NY Times best-selling author whose work both Blair and Bonnie admire.

Last night Heather Graham held a fund-raising event at Completely Canine, a dog grooming facility. She very generously gave away autographed copies of her NEW book, GHOST WALK. Donations went to the ASPCA disaster relief fund to help pets displaced by Katrina and Rita. A co-worker attended and picked up a copy for me.

GHOST WALK is a ghost story. Here's the back cover blurb. I think I'm going to like this one, even if it makes me sad for a city that is in tatters. New Orleans WILL rise again!

Ghost Walk by Heather Graham

This is no dream . . .

Nikki DuMonde's newest employee is standing at the end of her bed at four o'clock in the morning begging for help. It's a joke, right? Besides, as manager of a successful New Orleans haunted-tour company, Nikki doesn't scare easily. But in the light of day, harsh reality sets in as a police officer informs her that Andy was brutally murdered -- at the exact time Nikki swears the distraught woman was in her room.

No one believes her except Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator desperately trying to forget his tragic past. Half Irish, half Lakota -- and able to communicate with the dead -- Brent is used to living in two worlds. But when he realizes the ghost of a slain government agent is also trying to reach out to Nikki, he knows that she, too, must listen to the dead . . . if she wants to keep living.
