Good book. Darby was the bad boy of Bayou Bridge when he was a teenager. He and Renny were young and in love and snuck off to get married. On the way home they were in an accident where Renny was badly hurt. Their parents lied to them about the other's feelings and sent Darby away to military school, where he then went on to college and law school and joined the navy. All that time he thought that Renny hadn't wanted him any more and that their marriage had been annulled. When he left the navy h ...more

I was overjoyed to get immersed into the world of Bayou Bridge again. Simply said, Renny & Darby's journey is a whole lot of wonderful! In my opinion, this is one of Liz Talley's best books yet. It truly hit "home" for me in a way that I didn't think was possible, partly because I'm a Cajun girl from south Louisiana, but mostly because there were A LOT of similarities between the story line & my first love. Oh, the memories it evoked...I bawled my eyes out many times (the ugly, gasping f ...more

Being from the New Orleans area, I'm always apprehensive when it comes to reading books about the area. I've got to say, Liz Talley knows what she's talking about. Her words bring me "home" - the setting, the sounds, the food, the slang... the soul of the people are captured in this book and the other two in this series.

Just when I thought Abram (Under the Autumn Sky) was my favorite Dufrene brother, Darby arrives home in this book and made me change my mind. I loved him from the very first few

I got a sneak peek at this one and like the two before, I loved it.

The romance was fun, I'm a sucker for lost loves reuniting, but the family drama in the background was also a page turner.

If you haven't met the Dufrene family yet, you should pick up their stories and let them introduce themselves.

Very nice second chance story. The main characters were engaging and sympathetic.

Good girl Renny Latioles with college plans and rich bad boy Darby Dufrene going nowhere are pure dynamite together. The youngsters are taking Bayou Bridge by storm with crazy antics and their parents are not happy about it. So even though the teens are madly in love, when the chance arises, the parents manipulate them to keep them apart.

Ten years later, Darby is ready to start over in Seattle. It's a whole new life: new city, new job, new girl. But to g

Loved this book and really loved how spunky Renny was. Would love to read the other books in this series and would also like to know what happens with Della now. Darby sounds adorable and it was such a cute love story!

Nice, snappy writing, but lacking in substance - the relationships and characterizations hint at a rich story-world, but still somehow fall flat.

Excellent plot. Loved the fact they still loved each other but had to work on the changes years apart had made in who they were now.

I unashamedly read, write and love romance books. I adore the weight of a book in hand and the anticipation of a happy ending. I love the journey, the word play and the magic of story. Nothing's better than reading a good book...except writing one. You can learn more about me and my award-winning romances at
