The story moved along nicely and held my interest…If you like Louisiana bayou as a setting and a little romance with your mystery, you’ll enjoy Body on the Bayou.

When you read Ellen Byron’s book, you are transported to Louisiana. I was transported to the beautiful deep south of this charming mystery.
This was a good, fun read! I enjoyed the story, and was caught up in it from almost the beginning.
~The Ninja Librarian
This was a well written book that had humor and mystery…I really enjoyed this story and visiting Pelican and it’s quirky inhabitants again.
~Melina’s Book Blog
This is still a new series (as this is only book 2), but what a great series.
I enjoyed the story and the author did a great job of character development.
It was a fun and fascinating read with a perfect blend of humor and suspense. Family, traditions, food, plantations, marriage: is hard not to love this story.

Genre – Cozy Mystery
The Crozats feared that past murders at Crozat Plantation B&B might spell the death of their beloved estate, but they’ve managed to survive the scandal. Now there’s a très bigger story in Pelican, Louisiana: the upcoming nuptials between Maggie Crozat’s nemesis, Police Chief Rufus Durand, and her co-worker, Vanessa Fleer.
When everyone else refuses the job of being Vanessa’s Maid of Honor, Maggie reluctantly takes up the title and finds herself tasked with a long list of duties–the most important of which is entertaining Vanessa’s cousin, Ginger Fleer-Starke. But just days before the wedding, Ginger’s lifeless body is found on the bayou and the Pelican PD, as well as the Crozats, have another murder mystery on their hands.
There’s a gumbo-potful of suspects, including an ex-Marine with PTSD, an annoying local newspaper reporter, and Vanessa’s own sparkplug of a mother. But when it looks like the investigation is zeroing in on Vanessa as the prime suspect, Maggie reluctantly adds keeping the bride-to-be out of jail to her list of Maid of Honor responsibilities in Body on the Bayou.
