It's a 'girls gone wild' week when the Lemon Drop Martini Club Ladies kick it up a notch in New Orleans. Constance and crew are in the French Quarter to meet with Beignet Broussard, a Wiccan/Voodoo Queen. She's the only one powerful enough to help Constance get rid of Clarisse, a bi-polar, man-hating ghost who barged in and dumped herself and her paranormal gifts on Constance during a tarot card reading. Constance finally has a great man in her life and Clarisse attacks him every chance she gets. How long can Constance hang on to her guy when a pesky ghost keeps picking on him? It's a no brainer - she's got to get rid of Clarisse. But things get complicated when Beignet tells Constance the payment she wants for her services - a spell on Constance that will allow her to see and communicate with the ghost of Jean Lafitte, the famous 17th century pirate. He left a treasure map in code and all Constance has to do is find Jean and get him to decipher the code so the treasure can be found. The challenge: Find the pirate, decipher the code, hunt for the treasure, and get rid of Clarisse. Challenge accepted: The Lemon Drop Martini Club - the baby boomers with an attitude. It's wicked fun and indescribable adventure in the historic city of New Orleans, where Lemon Drop Martinis, Hurricanes, and Huge Ass Beer flow like a river down Bourbon Street!

About Carolyn Anderson Jones
I love flitting between "country" and "chic," or as chic as I'm going to get. Growing up on the Denver/Front Range gave me a lot of country and chic to flit around in. I think it's the best place in the world to live. We have wide-open spaces & cramped downtown high-rises, mountains & plains, lofts & ranches, bistros & barbecues, symphonies & rodeos. Plus, the best outdoor playground any man or woman could ever want. I flitted between country and chic in my first two books. My first book, Cowgirl Up! is about all things country - horses, dogs, trail rides, cowboys, chaps, boots, and vets. My second book, Scared Hitless is about all things chic - trendy women, vacation homes, mountain resorts, boutiques, boating, and Lemon Drop Martinis. These books embrace the best of my two worlds. Included in my worlds are my family, friends and pets. I live in Broomfield and I have a gorgeous view of the Rocky Mountain Range and the Flatirons above Boulder. I see my old high school classmates and horse pals on a regular basis, and my best friends, kids and grandkids live within a few miles of my house. I'm a free spirit; a "glass-is-half-full" kinda gal, and forever a hippie at heart. My favorite skirt is my Mudmee wraparound, and I have my old love beads and Lennon sunglasses in my cedar chest. Along with my cashmere gloves, cloche hat, Calvin Klein handbag, old quilt, Parelli horse halter, and a hand-made hackamore bit from my grandfather. See what I mean? I will always be a woman who flitters between country and chic - a Colorado native and proud of it!
