    I've loved every book Ms. Dukes has written. Each one has been better than the one before, and Echoes in the Bayou is the best yet! The intrigue and suspense are gripping. Just when you think you've got the plot figured out, she throws you completely for a loop.The paranormal activity is chilling and eerie. Several moments had my heart racing and holding my breath in anticipation of what might come next. It definitely kept me glued!As always with this author, I felt very connected to the main female character. I found myself drawn into her life and her story as if she were someone dear to me in my own life. Whatever she was feeling or experiencing, I was right there with her.The attention to location detail was brilliant. Much of the story takes place in Corinth and New Orleans Louisiana. The history and culture of south Louisiana was very prominent. From landmarks, locales, and even voodoo supersitions, no small detail was left out. It all helps the reader to feel as though they are walking down those famous streets themselves.As always, I eagerly await the next book from Ursula Dukes!

    Another awesome book by this new author. Loved how it started off in the past and then carried on into the present without seeming to be awkward.The paranormal parts were befitting to this novel and i found myself being pulled into each scene. the attention to detail was very good and I liked how I was brought on a journey after all was said and done in Louisiana. The continuation into New England, was right on and I loved the additional characters. Especially Sterling! His mannerisms and words were once again, right on. I liked being brought further into a book. I didn't want it to end. Great Book. This author is a fast fav of mine.!

    Ready for a good ghost story?Really great ghost story..just enough spookiness within going overboard. Then, just when you think everything is going smoothly, a little more paranormal activity to even things out. I really enjoyed reading this novel!

    The paranormal aspect of this book was just perfect. What I really liked though was that after all is said and done, we're taken on a journey into New England where the story continues.Excellent Read!

    I did not finish this. I couldn't. Living with a grammar Nazi has assured me I am not one but this book...egads! Every other sentence started with a conjunction. The narrative was all over the place, jumping from one idea to another and then back again without feeling like it completed either thought. I really wanted to like this but instead, I kept having to reread sentences. I did more editing in my mind than I did seeing the story. I loved the idea of this but not the execution so much. Maybe some polishing would help?

    This book started off okay. I liked the paranormal historical romance that was included - especially about slavery. But, the story had multiple endings and too many evil protagonists. Toward the end...it was like a bad run-on sentence.

    This novel was a very good read for me. Loved the dialogue too. The slave journal entries just felt right. I really felt as if I was there, looking at things through her eyes. I look forward to reading more of her work.

    Great book. Five stars. I love the characters that are presented in this book, and the setting of the book is really divergent. It has a little bit of this and that especially the suspense. Great book.

    Fun readAlways like a good ghost story--especially one about the bayou--and the characters were good. Just wish there had been a proofreader involved.
