Enza Parker returns to Bayou Sabine, Louisiana to flip the house her grandmother left her in her will. It’s been fifteen years since Enza set foot in the bayou; fifteen years since her mother left her and her father behind. Enza sets out to prove to her father that she has what it takes to make it in the business without him looking over her shoulder. What she doesn’t count on is meeting Jack Mayronne and being drawn into his orbit. Before long, Enza finds herself in a tangle of arsonists and jilted ex-lovers that only complicate her job and her resolve to not let anyone get too close. Bayou My Love by Lauren Faulkenberry combines romance, passion, and mystery in a way that will leave you wanting more.

Arson, passion, the Louisiana bayou. What do these things have in common? They are all elements that heat up Bayou My Love. Lauren Faulkenberry brings the Big Easy to life on her pages. From her accurate descriptions of the bayou to her sizzling love scenes, Bayou My Love is a novel that is sure to please. Equal parts romance and mystery drew me in from the very beginning and I was excited by each new twist and turn thrown my way. Faulkenberry capitalizes on the already romantic nature of the south and cranks it up to a hundred. Steamy love scenes set against the backdrop of the steamy bayou intensify the other elements and make Bayou My Love a must-read for any fan of the American south.
