Then Adrienne unexpectedly emerges, with no memory of the life she once led. Her desperate attempt to flee the confusing and dark influences in the bayou instinctively propels her to the one face for which she has a name. Oz’s world is once again turned upside down, as he must decide how to help her without losing himself entirely.
Set amidst the lush and vibrant backdrop of New Orleans, St. Charles at Dusk tells the story of Oz and Adrienne; of forbidden love, and startling heartbreak.

Before I go into details, I want to say overall, I enjoyed St. Charles at Dusk by Sarah M. Cradit. It was not really my type of reading material but all in all I did enjoy it. With that said, I have to admit that I had a little trouble following the story line with the switches in time frames and POV.
Sarah does an excellent job in the description of places in New Orleans and I most definitely want to see some of them if I ever get a chance. However, at times, I felt like I was reading a tour guide, with too much detail.
Oz and Adrienne are the main characters. I liked Oz, liked not loved, and thought he was a nice guy but he seemed a little wimpy to me because of the self doubt. I get it. He is worried about the age difference between him and Adrienne but make a decision all ready. His self doubt is commendable and honest but annoying at the same time. I was not the biggest fan of Adrienne. I could not connect with her. She is likeable but a little uppity for my taste. She is not a down to earth kind of gal.
The story line however is interesting with all the twist and turns. Some of the back story was drawn out and a little unnecessary and I still have questions that never got answered but overall I liked it.
St. Charles at Dusk by Sarah M. Cradit receives 3 out of 5 Platypires.
TEXAS Hugs and Happy Reading!!!
