Maureen Child is a native Californian, still waiting for a change of seasons. As the author of more than sixty books, Maureen loves a happy ending and still swears that she has the best job in the world. When she isn’t writing, she’s reading or traveling with her husband. Maureen lives in Southern California with her husband, two children and a golden retriever with delusions of grandeur. Though it sounded practically medieval, Frannie’s threat was all too real. In a city where family lineage carried a lot of weight, Frannie could make it very difficult for Holly to earn a living with her singing.

New rule. All the books in a series must be written by the SAME AUTHOR. I've read the first five books in the Hotel Marchand series. The Hotel Marchand is a family-owned hotel in the French Quarter of New Orleans which is struggling after Hurricane Katrina & in each book the hotel is featured.

But, since each author has their own different writing style, the effect is jarring & the continuity of the books is weak. So far my ratings have been: a 4, a 5, a 3, a 4, a 3, in that order. All the authors are good and if these were stand-alone books they would be fine.

Parker James, New Orleans coffee heir, is getting a divorce after 9 ½ years in a "non marriage". Holly is a jazz singer who sang at Parker's wedding. The night before the wedding Holly went to pick up some music & found Frannie, the bride to be, in a very compromising position. She didn't say anything at the time because of some major threats from Frannie.

How dumb is Parker? This guy is supposed to be a hot-shot executive. He married a woman in what was one step away from an arranged marriage. After six months of marriage they lived apart until ten years later when he suddenly decided he wanted a divorce. All this time he's been supporting her, in a lavish lifestyle. He said one of the reasons he thought the marriage would work was because of their sex life. Hello?? She was a lesbian & he never picked up on that until Holly told him?

Also why is it that in every book I read about a redhead they look fabulous in red? For a redhead to look good in red is a very rare thing. How about picking a color that they DO look good in for a change?

Holly was an appealing character but Parker, besides being stupid, was rather arrogant & somewhat mean-spirited. I have the next two books in the series & would recommend it as long as you're prepared for the ups and downs.

At the bar in the Hotel Marchand, jazz singer Holly Carlisle recognizes Mr. Misery as she sang at his wedding. She goes over to say hello to businessman's Parker James, who at first does not recognize her until she mentions the wedding that he never should have said yes to ten years ago; now the messy divorce is all over the local papers as Frannie accuses him of sabotaging the import division of the family company that he gave his share to her as part of the settlement. He admits he came to the bar in the middle of the afternoon to hear her perform and ask her if she would be interested in playing in his new club Parker's Place.

She accepts his offer, but soon Holly and Parker become lovers while Frannie makes life miserable for everyone associated with her ex. She goes so far as to sabotage his new endeavor interfering with shipments and continues her hate campaign to destroy Parker. However, when she turns her venom on Holly, she chose someone with claws willing to strike back unlike Parker who is ready to surrender.

BOURBON STREET BLUES is an interesting character study inside of a contemporary romance. Frannie the mean queen is a fascinating manipulator who plays Holly and Parker like a virtuoso violinist. Courageous Holly is an ethical person who refuses to allow threats, extortion or bribes to stop her from achieving her life dreams. However, Parker seems shallow next to the dynamic females as he is ready the throw in the towel (or at least raise the white towel high) at every setback. Still fans will enjoy the latest New Orleans Hotel Marchand tale.

Ten years ago, chanteuse Holly witnessed the bride to be of Parker having sex with her maid of honor. Bride Frannie threatened to destroy her career if she talked, so Holly walked. But Parker, now on the verge of divorce is looking for a singer to headline at his jazz club, and he wants Holly. An unmistakable spark ignites between the two, but the morning after Parker has regrets and thinks that Holly is just another woman out to trap him. What he doesn't count on is that Holly has a backbone, and she won't give in to his drama.

Within six months, Parker and Frannie's marriage was a sham with both living separate lives. But Parker has had enough and wants to end the charade. Scheming Frannie sees Holly as an obstacle to a perfectly great relationship she has had with her husband and wants nothing to change. But her attempts at seducing Parker fall on deaf ears, so she has to go to plan B and get the redhead out of Parker's heart.

Child's installment in the Hotel Marchand series is a little lacking. The characters are underdeveloped, and since it's a book within a series, plot points introduced go nowhere. It's annoying for readers who prefer their stories to stand alone. It is just an okay book, and not worth a repeated reading like her far better "Some Kind of Wonderful."
