Polly finished school, went to college and became a professor of literature. She has two wonderful daughters from a brief marriage. Polly now has an almost perfect life. The only thing missing is true love. Then, one day while walking in Jackson Square, she meets a handsome, eligible, and successful architect, Marshall Marchand. It is an immediate and passionate connection for both of them. Polly's daughters adore Marshall. Polly and Marshall marry quickly with Marshall's brother, Danny, and Polly's daughters as their witnesses. The future looks bright for them.
Polly has continued to visit the fortune tellers on Jackson Square since that first night in New Orleans. One day a fortune teller, known as the Woman in Red, gives her a very distressing reading of the tarot cards. "Your husband is not who you think he is. You will kill him." Polly tells Marshall about this and he immediately begins to withdraw from her. Marshall has a very dark secret. Polly's perfect life quickly begins to unravel.
It was at this point in the book that my vacation ended. I will tell you that my vacation was wonderful, but you will have to read the book to find out how Polly's story ends.
(P.S. Don't forget to visit the SummerQuest blog -- we have a spooky new quest to match this book.)
