Synposis: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.
Dr. Jake Carmichael returns to Cypress Bayou after years away and is shocked to see Leah, his childhood sweetheart and first love, back in town and on his patient roster. The sparks still burn, but when he tries to discuss what went wrong and perhaps rebuild their relationship, Leah refuses.
Jake’s not ready to give up on their future together. But Leah fears she has even more to lose this time.
Having lived in the south during my twenties, small town Louisiana was one of my favorite places to visit. I loved the community, food, and hospitaility. This story did not disappoint. The characters are well developed and likeable. Jake and Leah are the "it" couple until their lives drift in different directions. Leah leaves Cypress Bayou and establishes herself in Paris. Jake hasn't left. When Leah unexpectedly returns, she finds her feelings for Jake are as strong as ever. I love this relationship and how their love was reignited.
I can't wait to see how book 2 unfolds! I highly recommend this book to all who love a good family drama surrounded in mystery.
