She adores her son but has sworn off men. She’s dedicated herself to restoring an historic house and building her own business. A quiet life is all she wants.
Harrison Jefferys never expected to find himself in small-town Louisiana, but he has a job to do and a family to reconnect with. After years in the Army, he’s happy to spend time with his Aunt Celeste and his cousins in such an idyllic spot.

Caught between the woman he’s coming to love and the only family he has left, Harry knows he has to follow his heart and with the help of the crazy, loving, meddling locals find a way to keep them both.
5 iScream Cones
“He and Sera had heat. Whether or not that was enough to build a fire, he couldn’t know if he didn’t spend more time with her.”
I’m loving the Butterfly Bayou series. The colorful characters are so much fun, even Otis the gator. The delicious anticipation of waiting for Harry and Sera to finally build that fire that was burning between them was so satisfying. I giggled and sighed and laughed and raged my way to the end. At times I was wishing for a voodoo doll to poke pins in and at other times I was a puddle of goo on the floor.
I’ve totally fallen for several other characters as well that I hope to see featured in future books in the series. I highly recommend this small-town romance that is guaranteed to check all your boxes for an enjoyable read. I can’t wait to get my hands on Bayou Dreaming. The line forms here…
