This book is so much fun to read. All the chaos and mayhem caused by one coin, and leads to an adventure which will bring Matthias & Christine together. This book is a combination of all my favourite genres, historical, paranormal, adventure, mystery, and romance. No wonder I enjoyed reading... ...more

Ahhhh! Let's start with the setting of this book! New Orleans, early 20th century! Yes, please!

Let's continue with the story and characters. Ghosts, voodoo priestesses and witches, all of these are perfectly normal in a book set in NOLA. And in this one, people are more open-minded about them. Th... ...more

If nothing else, it certainly makes it hard to do your work as a milliner to society ladies o... ...more

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
There are two genres of books that I always try to avoid – Westerns and Romance. But I love Julia Mulhern’s writing, so decided to give this book a go.
I was relieved to see that it was not a conventional Romance... ...more

This was a review copy from NetGalley and the publisher.

Honestly, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. I have never read the author and wasn't sure about the description. But this was intriguing from the first page and I really enjoyed the MCs and their gradual romance amongst all of the mys... ...more

1903, New Orleans. How was Christine Lambert, (a milliner and shop owner), to know that the piece of eight that her father gave to her before he died would lead to solving a puzzle and bring with it a desirable prize.
But Matthias Blake has been sent to help, to combat the ghosts, voodoo and anyth... ...more

WOW. This book was so much fun to read. I didn't intend to read it in a day, but it was impossible to stop. We're back in New Orleans, 1903. We've got a hat maker whose father (a ghost, of course) has gone missing. Only a special investigator can help with this situation. So Zeke (the MMC from bo... ...more

By Denise July 26, 2016

This author is new to me but I wish I would not have missed the first one. I was drawn to this one by title which usually is not the deciding factor for me but this one yes. I find this area so mysterious and sensual can not resist it. The time period of this one also lends to it promising even m... ...more

By CJ - It's only a Paper Moon September 19, 2016


the con: If this book had been longer there would have been more time draw out the mystery and the action points then this would've been a full 4. we could've spent more time with the characters and gotten a better sense of them, their desires and pasts.

What I read, I liked and I can't wait t... ...more

By Inishowen July 30, 2016

I've never read a historical mystery with demons and ghosts in it before but this was non stop action from the get go. New Orleans is the perfect setting for all the paranormal activity.
I loved Christine, who is smart, independent and feisty. Matthias makes a good sidekick and his over protective... ...more

By Susan July 25, 2016

This page-turner set in 1903 New Orleans combines elements of action adventure--there are pirates and treasure--with historical romance. Add in the ghosts and sprinkle a little voodoo on the top and you have a book you can't put down. ...more

About the author

Julie Mulhern

Julie Mulhern is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean--and she's got an active imagination. Truth is--she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions. Her first romance was a finalist in the 2014 Golden Heart contest. That book, A Haunting Desire releases July 28, 2015. Julie also writes mysteries. The Deep End (available now) is her first mystery and is the winner of The Sheila Award. Look for book two, Guaranteed to Bleed, in October, 2015.
