Clementine Toledano Mysteries

With rocker chick Clementine Toledano, DeVore offers a flawed, fabulous and deeply human protagonist with the kind of baggage many women will recognise, so deeply connected to the bayou that the reader can smell the blue gum trees.
— Deborah Grabien, author of The J.P. Kinkaid Chronicles
