By Alexandrea Weis

Still devestated two years after the mysterious murder of her beloved David Alexander, Nicci Beauvoir surprises everyone in the Big Easy by returning to her hometown with a new admirer: the cool and contentious Dallas August. But the attractive stranger is asking a lot of questions about David's death, making Nicci's family and friends speculate about his true intentions. Only Nicci knows that Dallas, a high-priced corporate spy, has come to New Orleans to flush out David Alexander's killer. Playing the part of her lover, Dallas escorts Nicci around town hoping to get closer to his possible suspects. But hiding amid the city's elite is a jealous maniac waiting to make Nicci suffer.
As the days pass and the danger grows, Nicci's relationship with the handsome spy turns from adversarial to amorous. Desperate to unearth the identity of David's murderer, Nicci and Dallas decide to lure the killer out of the city for one final showdown. It is a deadly decision that could cost Nicci everything. But it may be her only chance for....Recovery.

Recovery is the second novel in the Nicci Beauvoir series by Alexandrea Weis.

This book is a romantic thriller set in post-Katrina New Orleans. I was a little concerned about reading this book since it is part of a series. I haven't read "To My Senses" but I was still able to keep up with the story line in "Recovery" fairly easily.
I found the book a little hard to get into in the beginning, but by the end of the first chapter I wanted to see where things were going to go between Nicci and Dallas. I was also lured in by the setting of the book being in New Orleans since I have visited there.
The author kept me hooked as to who could possibly be David's killer. The scenes where Nicci and Dallas were alone and fighting their feelings for each other were very good. The ending actually surprised me and I look forward to the next book in the series.
