    As another reviewer said, this series won't win any literary awards but I'm still thoroughly enjoying it. The romance and adventure, even with the sometimes awkwardly inserted Christian conversions, are getting me through 3rd trimester. I swear this baby won't come until I read the 8th book!

    This was a great story - clean, with lots of mystery and a bit of romance too.

    Reading inspiration: Thanksgiving 2017 in rural Louisiana I didn't realize how much I have to thank this book for my knowledge of New Orleans and Louisiana: - the Avery Island salt mine (now better know for Tabasco sauce) - Catahoula Curs (I actually saw one on the St. Charles streetcar!) - garconnieres - "little one-story white houses along Rampart Street," (47) (Barbara Hambly does a good job at the nuances of gens de couleur libre in her Benjamin January series, but I was impressed at how delicat Reading inspiration: Thanksgiving 2017 in rural Louisiana I didn't realize how much I have to thank this book for my knowledge of New Orleans and Louisiana: - the Avery Island salt mine (now better know for Tabasco sauce) - Catahoula Curs (I actually saw one on the St. Charles streetcar!) - garconnieres - "little one-story white houses along Rampart Street," (47) (Barbara Hambly does a good job at the nuances of gens de couleur libre in her Benjamin January series, but I was impressed at how delicately the Morrises tackled the topic) - traditional Creole plantation architecture (like the Whitney Plantation) - The Cabildo, now part of the Louisiana State Museum - the real Bayou Chene, part of the Atchafalaya Basin - Winslow Homer's "Prisoners from the Front." The Morrises did an excellent job of weaving history, culture, and plot together without it feeling overly expository. (Unsurprisingly, I wasn't a fan of the over-the-top "armor of God" mysticism…) Overall, a solid entry in the Cheney series.

    Each book in this series takes you to a different place in the U.S. and explores the life of the people in that area at that time. This book took us to New Orleans slightly after the Civil War. There to help her aunts with her plantation and a sickness that has come over the workers and the land itself brings her face to face with the dark side of the inhabitants of the area....voodoo. Very interesting and intrigue on many levels. I think this is the best book in the series so far!

    The main cast of Secret Place of Thunder: Cheney, Shiloh, Colonel Duvall, Irene, Tante Elsye, Tante Marye, Victoria & Gowan make one of the best character casts I have ever read. Any scene with the whole group simply felt like home. This was a book I definitely didn’t want to finish, but loved to read.

    not my favorite in this series. It had a lot to do with voodoo and also contained alot of Christan beliefs in it. :/ It was okay.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I got pretty into this book, and at the spot where Chloe tries to kiss Shiloh, I got so mad I almost felt like throwing the book across the room. And I knew something more was gonna happen, even before I read that Cheney walked in. Argggggg! I was SOOOOOOOOOOO annoyed at Chloe! Anyway... *tries to cool myself down* it was pretty good, and I liked the aunts. Specifically Elise. :) She almost acts like a little girl, but I like it.

I love that Dev and Victoria have now gotten their relationship settled. I despise the evilness that comes with the satanic rituals going on in order to run the aunts off of their property. I love the victory that Christ brings to the family and friends at the aunts home. Sadly I wish that Shiloh could see his need for a Savior. Unfortunately that doesn't happen for a few more books and he has much heartache before that time. He had every opportunity in this book, but chose not to take it. Sigh...

    This is one of my favorite from this series. Set in New Orleans, it is full of good, evil and the knowledge that good will always conquer evil, though not always in timing we wish it did. :) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Re-Read 5 Stars Because of all the chaos in my life right now (re: Erik at Sunnybrook), I just felt the need to have familiar books.

And it also shows how that evil can penetrate your life if you don't focus completely on the Lord. Fabulous book!!!

    I enjoy the history and the development of the faith and how to use the faith in different settings and situations. Cheney drives me a little crazy. Her character is selfish and way more insecure than I expect from someone in her situation. It's understandable given her rejection from professional security but when you have men fawning over you all the time because of your looks, do you really need to be so insecure about a mans flirtations--especially if he would stop with just one word from yo I enjoy the history and the development of the faith and how to use the faith in different settings and situations.

For a woman who is supposed to be strong and independent her social flaws drive me batty--but I enjoy the stories mostly because of the support behind the main characters. Though it may be a lite overly descriptive in places, it teaches me a lot and I appreciate that

    For years I have said that Christy by Catherine Marshall was my favorite book of all time, it always will be! Ever since starting the Cheney Duvall, M.D. series I have gained a 2nd favorite. I read Christy every few years and after checking out the Cheney Duvall series, I purchased them knowing I would be re reading these as well! This particular book was amazing. Having been to New Orleans myself made it more fun. I loved that real history was added into the book to make it seem so real (ex.

Every time I would try to put this book down for the night- and the others in the series as well-the ending of a chapter would have me reading more and more!

    Cheney goes to her great aunts plantation after receiving a disturbing letter involving Indians across from her land that are performing rituals. They declare that it is spirit ground and they must leave. After refusing the Indians put a curse on them and there land and some of the servants/maids become ill and the crops do not seem to last. Cheney tries to figure out why the Indians are so interested in the land all of a sudden but every attempt proves to be unsuccessful.

I sometimes found it difficult to get through it.

    This series seemed to drag on FOREVER!There are eight books and I honestly think two or three could be eliminated, just because they are unneccesary. They are pretty well written, but they all end the same, so the series was kind of monotonous.

    This book series is incredible! And appropriate for Tweens! This book itself was really good. It did have some witchcraft and kissing but nothing to great extent. I would recommend these books for both girls and guys!

    I used to like this series a lot. It does have some funny moments/characters and interesting plot points, but it is also rather on the feminist and romantic side.

    Very good. Cheney and Shiloh travel to New Orleans to her great aunts house. Her aunts are having problems with getting sick, and their indigo crops being sick. They think it has to do with Voodoo.

    Far-fetched and melodramatic---would not read this book again, but I will continue the Cheney Duvall series
