Some secrets are buried deep…
When newly minted attorney Carly Bertrand returns to Cypress Bayou, Louisiana, to be close to her family, her first priority is finding a job. She’s shocked to get an offer from her childhood crush, Tanner Carmichael, whose town roots are as deep as hers. Carly accepts, confident she can help Tanner get his new law practice up and running, and keep her attraction to him under lock and key. She’s no longer a starry-eyed teen admiring from afar.
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.
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.
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’m so excited to celebrate the release of Home to Cypress Bayou, the first book in my new Louisiana Bayou series! If you love romance,
