Reviews for Epico Bayou

By James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief of The Midwest Book Review

In 1897 Lionel Augustus died. Much to the resentment of his siblings, he left his considerable wealth and property to his bastard son and his much beloved step-daughter--but with the stipulation that in order to inherit they had to marry. But there are malevolent forces arrayed against them as a couple--and against each other. A deftly written romantic mystery that is original, complex, and gothic in its structure, "Epico Bayou" demonstrates Charlsie Russell as a master storyteller and her latest novel a truly riveting read from beginning to end. Also highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections are her two earlier novels: "The Devil's Bastard" (9780976982401, $14.95) and "Wolf Dawson" (9780976982418, $14.95).

By Marcy Blesy for Rebecca's Reads

"Epico Bayou" by Charlsie Russell is an engaging historical mystery, suspense, romance all rolled together in one book. [....] Ms. Russell writes skillfully drawing the reader into the lives of the characters. Though the cast is large, the main characters are clearly defined and identifiable. The mystery carries the reader to the end with several surprise twists.
