Britta is back in New Orleans after thirteen years of being away and the time is getting close to the time she left before. She refers to it the night that she died. Only at that time she was known as Adrianna. Since that fateful night, she has been on the run and trying to put her life back together again. Britta is a mystery of and into herself; she has several different facets to her personality that leaves several people confused as to who she really is.
Britta works for a magazine that is geared towards women who do not have a problem with their confessions and what they like sexually. Only one problem now, someone sent her a photo of a dead woman that was bound to a bed and the makeup was grossly done, those are just two of the things Iíll tell you about the picture. Was it really a woman that had been murdered and had the murder happened yet? Those are just a few of the questions that Britta has.
Jean-Paul Paul Dubios is the detective that caught the case. Unknowingly to him at the time of the photo that Britta had. He is a dedicated officer but with a few demons of his own. He cares about saving the world from madmen and doesnít let anything get in his way of solving the crime. He is drawn to Britta in a way he didnít want to be and tried to fight it and put up a good fight with himself to keep it business.
With Mardi Gras and the tourist in town, this made Jean-Paulís job harder and easier for the killer to get his victims. It also brings out everyone and anyone to the city. With each new night it seems a woman has disappeared and it will take everyone surrounding Britta and Jean-Paul with the help of Jean-Paulís brothers to help solve the case.
Once again Ms. Herron has given us a book that will leave you turning the pages to solve the mystery behind the killings and just what Britta has to do with them all. Who is after her and why? There are many suspects but do they have the right one? What happens when they get a little too close, will she be able to fight her way out from the nightmare that she finds herself in? These are just a few of the questions that you ask yourself as you read the story and are drawn into it. Say You Love Me is definitely not a story to be missed if you like romantic suspense with a little voodoo thrown in.
