A Kiss So Deadly Reviews
Book: A Kiss So Deadly Author: Mary Reason Theriot Publication Date: 1/2/2013Reviewed by: Tammy Payne- Book Nook Nuts My Rating: 5 Stars REVIEW This is a New to me Author. The book starts us out way back in the 1700’s to a couple by the name of Pierre and Genevieve Marquette. The couple have been forced from their home in Nova Scotia to the Bayous of Louisiana. Pierre has built the lands and built a huge plantation home. Genevieve however comes down with Yellow Fever and passes.

Present : Bridgette Marquette comes back to her home after the death of both her parents. She must keep Marquette plantation alive and well. She has decided to turn it into a bed and breakfast. It has rich history and is known to be haunted. Bridgette is not afraid of the ghosts and she knows all about Genevieve. But there is something evil going on and Bridgette feels it in her bones and in her nightmares. The book is a fantastic read it gives great details which help you learn a lot about the characters. There is also some mystery as to who the evil is that is kidnapping and killing women. Great Read if you like Ghosts, suspense, and Mystery I thoroughly enjoyed the book !!A Kiss So DeadlyMary Reason Theriot
Mary Reason Theriot is a proud Louisianian; her blog is an amazing look inside the state she calls home. For A Kiss So Deadly, she enlisted her parents to discuss their family history, which is rooted in Louisiana. As a result, there is a reverence felt in the material that I have never encountered in a book.Paranormal Romance has long held a great interest for me. I enjoy the bizarre. I am comfortable in the dark. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts... they all hold an edgy, attractive element not found in most contemporary romance.The prologue and chapter one are beautifully crafted histories about the Marquette Plantation and it's original owners, Pierre and Genevieve Marquette.Chapter two introduces us to Bridgette Marquette. She is the newest owner of the Marquette Plantation. She has decided to turn the Plantation into a B&B. Many of the guests come looking for the famed ghosts of the plantation. This isn't your mom's B&B. There is also a new, sinister presence lurking. The ghost of Genevieve is there to warn Bridgette. There are also two men who have caught Bridgette's attention. Greg and Marcus. Something is warning Bridgette, one or both of these men could be bad news. A Kiss So Deadly is an awesome book filled with Southern angst, hot men, and family who don't leave, even in death.
A very good read, but 190 pages ends too fast.
I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspects of the story I influenced were spelling and grammar (and maybe the name of the B&B). If you feel my connection with the story makes my review unreliable, so be it, but this is my honest review.Going into this book I had decided that I was not going to fall for Ms. Theriot's trickery. Once I picked a suspect, I was sticking with him no matter what. I'm happy to report that I stuck to my guns, I wasn't right, but I stuck to my guns. I really wanted to change my mind a few times too, and obviously should have at least once, but I was pretty sure I could outsmart the author (really dumb assumption on my part.) This story is told in omniscient third person, which allowed us to delve into the minds of several of the characters. This led to some slightly repetitive scenes, but they felt mostly necessary, so they didn't annoy me as much as repetitiveness usually does.I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect of this story, and the backstory, although there were some areas where foreshadowing seemed to be used that didn't actually lead anywhere after first being mentioned, and I felt one of them in particularly could have really upped the ante for the drama of the story, so I was a little disappointed when it didn't go anywhere. I also had an issue with the ending. While the idea behind the ending was good and fairly close to the basic idea of what I was expecting to happen, the execution was weak and felt like a missed opportunity to me. It was okay for what it was, and a satisfying conclusion, but I really feel like it could have been so much more.Overall I give A Kiss So Deadly 4 out of 5 stars because it kept me turning pages and guessing about the identity of the bad guy, but had a couple areas where I thought more was going to happen that didn't.Reviewed on Just Another Girl and Her Books bloghttp://www.justanothergirlandherbooks...
Before building the Marquette Plantation, Pierre and Genevieve Marquette lived in a small home with the other Acadians in Nova Scotia. They were forced from their home as was others that traveled with them. It had taken Pierre years to build Genevieve the perfect home when they finally made it to Louisiana. Life had been hard but they had each other and their children. Unfortunately, Genevieve only got to live in it for a short while before her unfortunate passing. Yellow fever hit the area with a vengeance taking many lives, including hers. Ever since her passing Genevieve has wandered the plantation and watched her family grow. Genevieve is so proud of her decedents. She beams with pride as Bridgette strives to educate people of their unique cultural identity forged by some four centuries of turbulent history. She must warn Bridgette of the evil that lurks these grounds before it is too late .Readers will enjoy this as it's a creepy, tense and intriguing story. You will need to pay attention as it's a fast pace read but worth finding out who the evil one was!
I loved learning the back story of the family and how the plantation came to be. The hard work and the ghosts whom roam the grounds. Bridgette is use to her ancestors visiting her, but they seem restless now. This story kept me captivated. Ever time I thought I knew who the evil was at the plantation then I would change my mind and then change it again!! I really enjoyed reading this book. I can't wait to read more from Theriot. If you want to read a good paranormal mystery this book is for you!
Places were choppy and canned but the plot kept me interested.
