Nothing like "Going Home"...




Why I loved this book:

Emily is real! Yes, she has men fighting for her attention, but the vixen in all of us love this and might have even experienced it once or twice. Emily is a woman; a real genuine woman, with a normal job, normal values, and a good heart. Now tell me, how many of us cannot relate to that? The characters have gracious humor, southern values, and overall they're invested in the wellbeing of their community and friends.

Description of the book:

Paramedic Emily Boudreaux believes New Orleans is the perfect place for a young trauma junkie to see some action. Things start out fine enough, but years pass, and the job brings nothing but strife. Emily decides to make a fresh start by returning to her roots. She moves to the small town of Green Bayou, Louisiana. Thinking she will find peace and tranquility, Emily quickly learns that her imagination steered her wrong. Small town life offers far more tumult than she remembered! Mystery, excitement, deceit, and passion run rampant along the murky waters of Bayou Assumption. She struggles with the decision of which man to love: her amazing, new Paramedic partner, Jacob Templet or her handsome, former high school sweetheart, Deputy Pete Bergeron. Her ultimate struggle won't involve the decision of which man to be with. It is a quest for her personal survival! Praying to get out of a disastrous situation alive, Emily hopes that going home won't be the wrong decision.
