Blood On The Bayou (Annabelle Lee #2) by Stacey Jay
March 27, 2012
Fairy Containment and Control agent Annabelle Lee is back and has more trouble than ever. Her current boyfriend, Cade, has put their relationship on hold after catching her with her exboyfriend Hitch. Her gifts seem to be having some bad side effects that are only alleviated with a special drug. A drug that places her squarely in bed with the Big Man. Tucker, the Big Man’s gorgeous enforcer, can’t seem to make up his mind if he wants to kill Annabelle or sleep with her. When Hitch asks for Annabelle’s help in solving a murder mystery, she finds herself suddenly questioning everyone and everything she knows.
I love the unique premise of blood thirsty fae whose bite can kill over 95% of the population. Set in the steamy bayous of Louisiana, we are taken down a long treacherous path filled with murderous fae, unsettled ghosts, and government conspiracies. Annabelle Lee is an agent with Fairy Containment and Control. Basically she picks up samples of Fae droppings for study. Placed on suspension for her actions in the investigation into the murder of Grace Bauchamp, Annabelle has a lot of time on her hands. The events of the past three weeks have her rethinking the path her life is taking. Irresponsibility is Annabelle’s crutch she uses to support her drinking and drug use. She is trying to cut back but her relationship problems only seem to intensify the need to drown herself into obliteration. When Hitch contacts Annabelle about a murdered co worker and a secret government lab, Annabelle agrees to help and finds herself knee deep in a long reaching conspiracy. Who or what has authorized this lab and why? All the while, Annabelle’s gifts are expanding which leaves her in a quandary. The Fae are talking to her…and she can understand them. She needs to talk to someone about this but the BIg Man has made it perfectly clear-talk and you die.
