Marigny Street Blog Tour!!


Do you believe in the power of dreams?

Way down south on Marigny Street in the heart of New Orleans, the land of Catholic intersessions, purgatory, and supernatural superstitions, young Evangeline Chenier dreams of a radiant boy who saves her from a storm. She takes the dream seriously – in her family, dreams are sometimes more than dreams. Sometimes they foretell the future. Sometimes they create it.

Years later, Eva is no longer the same wistful girl but a hardened woman who no longer believes in dreams. Losing faith in her gift, she becomes lost in a nightmare of emotion, mourning her son, separating from her husband, and stewing in a dead-end job. And then fate brings her an unlikely surprise: one of the most famous movie stars in the world, Gabriel Roberts.

Caught by something in his eyes, Eva agrees to show him the real Big Easy on his last night in New Orleans—an evening that turns into four dreamy days spent recapturing lost faith and discovering a love neither expected. Realizing Gabriel is the boy from her childhood dream, Eva must leave everything behind—her husband, her family, her history, and the beautiful city she calls home—and gamble it all for the dream that has saved her on MARIGNY STREET.

Sunny's Review:

Ok so if you guys follow us on facebook you know that all last weekend I was talking about a book making me need to go to NOLA...THIS IS IT!!! I love the way that Annie described New Orleans. All I could think about was how much I wanted to go back and I could hear the music and feel the heat and humidity. LOVE IT!  So if you have never been this is a great description...if you have been get ready to want to go back. 

Now for the actual book content...I like this book. It is not as easy as just meeting the perfect guy and falling in love. Eva had already done that. Unfortunately life took over and there were so many hardships that Eva and her husband had already faced.  Then Eva meets Gabriel and it is an instant connection. She is trying to figure it all out and they have the BEST weekend. I can honestly say that I was in just as much turmoil as Eva through this book. I love (and hate) when an author can make me physically hurt while reading a book. It is amazing and I wish I had that type of talent. Gabriel is GREAT and SWEET and you love him from the beginning. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Go get it. It really is amazing. The ending was...well I'm not giving that have to see for yourself!

Buy the Book!

About the Author:

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.

When she’s not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently (still) resides in the big shake (although her southern roots are calling her home) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).

For lagniappe (a little extra), a virtual cup of cafĂ© au lait and beignets, please visit Annie’s website.  She can also be found on Facebook & Twitter.
