This standalone series opener is a great start to the Bayou Sabine series. Enza Parker was sixteen when her mother left and her relationship with her father has been strained ever since. Constantly trying to prove herself to him, when her grandmother leaves her the Bayou house Enza visited every year till her mother left, she convinces him to let her prove herself by handling a house flip on her own. With an $8500 budget and a six week timeline, she drives to Bayou Sabine, where she discovers she has a tenant.
Jack Mayronne did odd jobs for Vergie growing up and still takes care of her house, with a number of months left on his lease. When Enza shows up, she orders him to leave. But Jack can be persuasive, and he persuades her to let him help with the repairs and updates. Which is a good thing when gris gris and voodoo signs begin to appear in the yard and it becomes clear someone is set on causing harm.
