Dead on the Delta by Stacey Jay

Dead on the Delta is about a girl named Annabelle Lee. She is one of the few people immune to fairy bites in the entire city of Donaldsonville.  When a murder comes up, it's up to Annabelle to save the day. She becomes entangled in an ongoing investigation about a drug (aka breeze house) ring and when a lover from her past comes up, things get downright complicated. What Annabelle finds out in her own investigation puts everyone under suspicion, and the identity of the murderer is so surprising, you'll have to read the book to find out.
The author who wrote Dead on the Delta is a genius. With an exciting plot and surprises around every corner, this is a great murder mystery. The characters are so vivid, you get sucked into a world where fairies are real and romance runs rampant. I could hardly put the book down! The only flaw I found in the book was the excessive swearing, which distracted me from the story line. Overall, Dead on the Delta was a great book, and I would gladly recommend it to those who like mysteries, adventure, and romance.
I gave this book a content rating of 2 because there was a lot of swearing, alcohol, a drug ring, and mentions of sexual activities.
