Veiled Eyes – C.L. Bevill


Anna St. Thais always heard a voice in her head giving her advice, warning her away from harm. She calls it her little helper. In addition to the voice, she has dreams of a whistling man on a boat and a large, black lake. Not knowing the implications of all this, she strikes out for Louisiana from Texas, knowing that it’s what she must do.

Unfortunately for Anna, she meets the wrong trucker along the way. Fortunately for her, the little helper is far more than she ever dreamed. After a daring rescue, Anna finds herself among a group of people who call themselves The Family and all of them have the same golden eyes – just like she has.

Although she’s assured she’s one of The Family, she doesn’t feel welcome. Bad things are going on and someone is watching her. After meeting a strange man who claims to be her father, her curious mind leads her to investigate.

“Veiled Eyes” is a moderately paced thriller full of lies, betrayal, murder and deception. It’s also full of love. The setting in Louisiana Bayou Country, adds to the eeriness and mystique. To Anna, the setting is completely foreign, making her feel even more like an outsider.

The author captured the musicality of the characters’ accents without layering dialog with unreadable dialect. Their personalities are infused by who they are as individuals – or by their place in the family.

I highly recommend “Veiled Eyes” for anyone who likes a good mystery. Five Golden Acorns.
