It's not true that you can't go home again, but do you want to?
Paris gallery owner Leah Bertrand returns to her historic, moss-draped Louisiana hometown to fulfill a deathbed promise to her friend and mentor. She's been matched as a bone marrow donor to a stranger, yet the match is so close that doctors suspect a family relationship. But how? Leah's family has always seethed with drama, but this visit home promises secrets as deep, dark, and mysterious as the water in Cypress Bayou. And then her ex arrives, and Leah realizes the feelings and secrets she buried years ago have come back to haunt her...
Introducing the Louisiana Series - New, 2022!
The Louisiana Bayou series is set along the slow-moving, moss-draped bank of Cypress Bayou. The Bertrand family is a tight-knit bunch whose long-buried secrets shake the historic community’s foundation. These romantic and suspenseful stories build on the shared past of the town and its residents. Powerful politics, new strangers, and a long-missing woman turn Cypress Bayou upside down.
The Alabama Series—enter the world of Ministry, Alabama, meet the Laroux siblings and Ministry’s many charming and challenging characters. Southern stories full of laughter, love, and tears, and the joy of finding hope in the strangest places.
The novels are connected by the town and its characters, but each can be read independently.
I grew up in Northwest Louisiana, but have strong Cajun roots (Southern Louisiana) on both sides of my family. I live in the Atlanta suburbs with my dentist husband and near-adult children, plus a few furry creatures.
I love to cook and I adore food. I play tennis, but don’t exercise nearly enough. I write Southern romantic women’s fiction. It’s a rare day when I run short of words.
