Product Description

Do you believe in the power of dreams?

Way down south on Marigny Street in the heart of New Orleans, the land of Catholic intercessions, purgatory, and supernatural superstitions, young Evangeline Chenier dreams of a radiant boy who saves her from a storm. She takes the dream seriously – in her family, dreams are sometimes more than dreams. Sometimes they foretell the future. Sometimes they create it.

Years later, Eva is no longer the same wistful girl but a hardened woman who no longer believes in dreams. Losing faith in her gift, she becomes lost in a nightmare of emotion, mourning her son, separating from her husband, and stewing in a dead-end job. And then fate brings her an unlikely surprise: one of the most famous movie stars in the world, Gabriel Roberts.

Caught by something in his eyes, Eva agrees to show him the real Big Easy on his last night in New Orleans—an evening that turns into four dreamy days spent recapturing lost faith and discovering a love neither expected. Realizing Gabriel is the boy from her childhood dream, Eva must leave everything behind—her husband, her family, her history, and the beautiful city she calls home—and gamble it all for the dream that has saved her on MARIGNY STREET.

About the Author

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm. When she’s not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently (still) resides in the big shake (although her southern roots are calling her home) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent). For lagniappe (a little extra), a virtual cup of café au lait and beignets, please visit Annie’s website: www.annierosewelch.com

Marigny Street has left me speechless and emotionally spent. I had a hard time getting into Marigny Street at first, but then it gripped me and just WOULD NOT let me go. I suspect the book will stay with me for a long time to come; it was incredibly poignant and thought provoking.

Both characters were complex, believable, and not so different from people I know in real life. I loved Gabriel almost immediately but struggled a little with Eva and her grief, maybe because it hit somewhat close to home. Eva was broken from the loss of her son, just going through the motions of life, and Gabriel was an actor not entirely comfortable with his fame. To say it was love at first sight would make light of their relationship; you'll have to read for yourself to understand what I mean. (The Disney song "Once Upon a Dream" comes to mind.)

Marigny Street was incredibly, vividly descriptive. I've never been to New Orleans, but I could see, hear, smell, and taste everything so clearly that I feel as though I have been. Annie Rose Welch has a gift for making you feel like you are truly there with the characters.

This was the first book I've read by Annie Rose Welch, and I was truly touched by it. I am looking forward to diving into the second book of the Saving Angels series right away, and I've already followed the author on both Facebook and Amazon. (Yeah, it was that good.)

I reviewed this book on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium book blog.

**I received this book in exchange for an honest review!**

Life is complicated.

No one knows that better than Evangeline Chenier. Having suffered a serious personal loss, Eva didn’t believe that she really deserved to be happy ever again. Despite what her family tells her, despite everything that she was ever taught, she simply struggles to believe that she deserves to be happy after failing to protect her unborn child. But what happened wasn’t her fault and perhaps, for someone like Eva anyways, a dream is the only way to truly make her understand that.

Gabriel Roberts isn’t your average Irishmen. He’s not even your average Hollywood heartthrob. He is everything you’d imagine in a superstar, without any of the possible negative traits, and a surprisingly sweet, almost naive male specimen as well. He’s just what Eva needs. Exactly what her heart is yearning for, without her even knowing. And the one thing that will bring her back to life. But have they missed their chance at forever before they ever even have the chance to try?

I read Marigny Street without any clear understanding of what the story was about. I didn’t even realize (until I’d finished the book) that it was simply the first book in a series that already has multiple books available for purchase. I’d never even heard of Annie Rose Welch.

Boy, was I pleasantly surprised.

I loved the characters and their humanity. Not the usual turn of phrase there but entirely accurate in this case. I loved Eva and the pain and unrelenting guilt over her unborn child’s death. Not because the pain was there, of course, but because it showed that she had flaws and imperfections. Gabriel had his own as well – he was impulsive and rash, impatient and emotional.

I enjoy paranormal novels where characters have unusual gifts, and a storyline that will keep you captivated until the very last moment. However, I’ve had troubles getting into the novel – was it because I’ve never lost someone so close to me to cause me so much grief? Or was it because I couldn’t relate to the new couple Eva and Gabriel, simply believing that Eva was cold due to the fact that grief has made her emotionally incapacitated.

This is the first time reading anything by this author, but I can tell you I thoroughly enjoyed this great story. This story main characters are complex, very believable, and are no different then people in real life. This story is about Evangeline Chenier is a woman that is barely functioning from day to day ,because she's burdened with her past .The burdened is the death of her son, and she's feeling suffocated rather then comfort from her family. Her subconscious lets her escape through her dreams to a boy she hopes one day ,she will see again . Then she meets Gabriel Roberts who has Hollywood eating out of his hands ,but the Irish actor is far from being content in the world that he works in, all he wants is the simple life. But when Gabriel and Eva meet and she shows him the around New Orleans , the chemistry between them is strong. But Eva has came to alive again , and she can't believe that they both have a passion for jazz.Gabriel can't get enough of Eva's carefree enthusiasm, he has discovered a life that he would rather live as long as Eva is in it with him. I could goon and tell you more about this story but that would spoil the story for you .I highly recommend you read this amazing story , you won't be disappointed.

HASH(0xa72344ec) out of 5 stars A New Hope Romance July 2 2013
By Samantha LaFantasie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I beta'd this story and loved it. It gripped me on a number of levels. One is because I was a woman who experienced a loss of a child. Though my loss wasn't as extreme as Eva's, it was still painful and the hurt and thoughts were very powerful. That's the other thing about Eva. She was real. All the characters were real. The weather was real. New Orleans was a character herself. The story was alive to me. It was as if I lived the story as I read. There was a very surprising twist that wasn't expected and still has me reeling. The story still sticks with me to this day. Mrs. Welch has a talent. A true knack for symbolism and prose. I not only look forward to seeing her work in the future but I have no doubts that she will be setting new standards in this genre. You will not be sorry for picking this up.

I live in New Orleans & this book truly takes you there! You feel the city & the author describes things in such detail that you get wrapped up in this city & this story. The descriptions are simply beautiful & one of the things I really loved about this book. The story is filled with layers of meaning & the ending left me anxious to read more! I can't wait for the next book to come out!

Favorite Quotes:

“He had a pirate smile, the kind that you’d mortgage your house for; just to be able to afford the gold teeth in his mouth.”

“I waved my arms like helicopter propellers. My hips began to do the hula hoop… The crowd was now staring at me as I dominated the dance floor. His eyes went from cautious to shocked as I abandoned the helicopter hula for the running man and a pathetic attempt at the Roger Rabbit.”

“‘If you think about things more than you should, sometimes what you have is ruined because you over-think the things that can’t possibly be real. This’ – he touched my heart and then his ‘-is real. Let’s not ruin it by thinking. Let’s just be.’”

“The kiss was slow, warm, and tasted better than any food I had ever put in my mouth.”
My Review:

I am struggling to gather my opinion on this book, I loved it and a few times I laughed aloud and had to stop reading to wipe my eyes. I reveled in Ms. Welch’s humor and word play. The plot was enjoyable though admittedly outside of my typical fare, as I seldom read religious or paranormal material and this story had elements of both, but oddly those elements were not what bothered me. While I adored the first 75% of the book, I grew increasingly restless and frustrated with the main character and her dithering and angst, and just wanted to give her a slap to the back of the head. But the ending… the ending left me totally conflicted. While it was somewhat of a happy ending, it wasn’t the one I was hoping for. However, I must humbly bow down in reverence to Ms. Welch – she held my attention and has mad skills. More than anything else, I have an overwhelming desire to take a trip to New Orleans and ride a streetcar.

HASH(0xa7234d20) out of 5 stars but I can't help falling in love with the cover art for Marigny Street May 10 2015
By Cynthia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
*I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review*
I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I can't help falling in love with the cover art for Marigny Street. I just want to start by saying that I've never read an author’s note like Ms. Welch’s but it simply took my breath away. Some stories cannot die and it seems that Eva and Gabriel’s story is one of those. That simple note got me so excited to take this journey down Marigny Street.
The story opens with a woman named Eva who has suffered some sort of tragic loss which had left her barely keeping her head above water. The loss has caused a separation between she and her husband and although we don’t know the details of the loss, her husband Ansel is giving her an ultimatum to either take him back or divorce him. The decision must be made within the next four days.
In walks a charming actor named Gabriel Roberts, who immediately changes the course of Eva’s life.
While reading the story, I was really confused over Gabriel’s purpose. Is he an angel that’s come from heaven to save an emotionally dead woman or is he a man that simply wants to win her over and begin a romantic relationship? For the life of me I couldn’t see a resolution to the end of this book. Was Eva to run away with her new love interest and abandon the husband who had waited patiently for her to snap out of her depression for the past two years? That didn’t seem fair at all. There was no way this book could bring a happy ending to everyone.
But it did. The ending may have been bitter sweet. But it was still hopeful. I love the way that Ms. Welch ended this story.
While I enjoyed the story, there was something about the pace or writing style that could not capture me. Because of this, it took me a little longer than normal to finish the book but overall, I still liked it.
