Best-selling Author Melissa Bourbon Ramirez has mastered the art of cozy mysteries with her Magical Dressmaking and her Lola Cruz series. Now she's delighting fans everywhere with her romantic suspense release, The Curse of Passion.
A bit about The Curse of Passion:
The ghost of la Llorona is said to haunt the riverbanks, always searching for her drowned child. She also haunts high school teacher Johanna Rios, whose own mother believed so deeply in the legend she tried to drown her daughters. And now the ghost has become real, a young woman murdered, and the safe world Jo created is falling apart.
Since returning home from his last tour of duty to become a school principal, Ray Vargas has fought his attraction for his employee, the sensual woman who’d once been the girl next door. But the Llorona Killer will not stop until he claims his final victim—Johanna—and Ray will do anything to protect the woman he’s come to love.
With a serial killer out to prove the curse is real, will Ray and Johanna’s future be drowned in the ghostly waters of the past? Or will the power of their love give them the strength to stop a killer...and heal their wounded hearts...?
All right, now this would be the area where I would stick my review. However, I already published. Whoops. Anyway, you can checkout my thoughts on Curse of Passion by just clicking on the title. I personally think it's a fantastic story and you might too.
