Anything can happen on a Mardi Gras day in the countryside. Fleeing an obsessive boyfriend, Suzanne Hudson arrives in tiny Port Jefferson, Louisiana, to inventory the antiques of an antebellum home. Full of moonlight and magnolia dreams, she soon finds her job boring and the master of the manor, George St. Julien, dull and awkward. Everything changes during the Mardi Gras ride when Suzanne is playfully abducted by a masked man on a white horse and the famous Magnolia Hill silver disappears shortly thereafter.
Determined to discover the romantic rider's identity and solve the mystery of the lost silver, Suzanne unearths small town secrets that might be better left alone and finds her life in jeopardy. Will her masked rider come to her rescue?

When Suzanne Hudson gets the chance to tackle a project using her knowledge of antiques, it doesn't take her long to move forward.
In COURIR DE MARDI GRAS, author Lynn Shurr uses a community's tradition as a backdrop for the story. As far as characters go, Georges St. Julien is probably not high on the hottest hunk list. The storyline itself appears relatively tame with Suzanne being hired to catalog the contents of the St. Julien family home.
However, underneath his rather staid and steady exterior, St. Julien has quite a bit of passion. When Suzanne finds herself caught up in the celebration of Mardi Gras and playfully abducted by a masked man, the action ramps up with her search for his identity.
What follows is a story featuring stolen family silver, the appearance of Suzanne's ex-boyfriend and enough drama to make even a hermit long for company. Although there were plenty of moments peppered with humor, I didn't fall in love with these characters like I did with the author's The Sinners Series.
