Description:

Katie Connell is a high-strung attorney whose sloppy drinking habits and stunted love life collide hilariously in a doomed celebrity case in Dallas. When she flees Texas for the Caribbean, Katie escapes professional humiliation, a broken heart, and a wicked Bloody Mary habit, but she trades one set of problems for another when she begins to investigate the suspicious deaths of her parents on the island of St. Marcos. 

She’s bewitched by the voodoo spirit of an abandoned house in the rainforest and discovers that she’s as much a danger to herself as the island’s bad guys are. As the worst of her worlds collide, Katie drags herself back to the courthouse to defend her new friend Ava, an island local accused of stabbing the senator she’s been sleeping with.

My Thoughts: 

This was an interesting read about Katie Connell who is a major lawyer in Dallas, Texas.  During a company conference Katie quickly makes a mess out of herself with the guy she has a major crush on, after a drunk meltdown her brother points out that maybe she needs to get away and get her act together.  She decides to investigate the mysterious death of her parents in St. Marcos.

There she meets new friends and enjoys herself without getting drunk all the time, and decides to purchase a house inhabited by a voodoo spirit.  When she does go home to Texas she can't seem to get out of her funk, and soon after a botched case she ends up leaving Dallas again and move permanently to St. Marcos where she ends up defending her new friend Ava when she is charged for murder of her lover.

This book was fun and had some great parts to it, with her new friends and finding out what happened to her parents and who was responsible.
