I won this book in a contest and I am glad I did. There are some very emotional parts that I can understand especially dealing PTSD. I can't wait to read more of these stories. i highly recommend this book.

Shayla moves back home to help with her nieces after the loss of her brother. She is learning that family it the most important thing in her life. Dr. Xavier Wright is a temporary fixture in the small community of Gauthier. The hot, single doctor has women making excuses for trips to the E.R. to be treated by him.

Tragedy makes Shayla Kirkland leave her high profile job in Seattle to move back to her home town. She opens up a small coffe shop in Gauther, LA. She wants to build a relationship with her nieces and estranged sister in-law. She does not have time to fall in love.

Xavier Wright is the fine ER doctor that has everyone's blood pressure up. He moves from Hotlanta to the sleepy town of Gaither hoping for a new life.

This is another great love story from Farrah Rochan. She is great romance novel write

When they met, there was a huge misunderstanding on his part, but after he finds out the truth he did his best to apologize to her. She finally accepts his apology, and accepts his dinner invitation. They decide to take it slow and see if it will lead to anything. I can't want to read the next book to find out if it grew into something big or dw ...more
This was another great story in the Bayou Dreams series by Farrah Rochon. After the death of her brother, Shayla Kirkland returns to Gauthier to reconnect with her family. Running her coffe shop and helping take care of her nieces is all Shayla needs until she meets the sexy E.R. Doctor, Xavier Wright.
Shayla and Xavier's romance was a sweet and wonderful story. I always enjoy returning to the fictional town of Gauthier and catching up on the lives of other couples from past books. I know sooner
A great easy to read romance novel. Great as a stand alone story. This is the first book I've read by this author and will definitely have to look up the others in this series. Now to pass it on to other family members for them to enjoy!

FTC disclosure: I received this book free from Goodreads hoping I would review it.

I won this in a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway!!

This was a fun read with very likable characters. There are some serious situations in this book and they are dealt with in a heartwarming way. Overall, a quick and easy read. I would read more books by this author.
This is part of the Bayou series. Shayla Kirkland moves back to Gauthier LA out of a sense of guilt, after her brother kills himself. She hopes to help her sister-in-law,Leslie raise nieces Cassidy & Kristi. She meets Dr Xavier Wright when she has to take Kristi to ER after she eats Easter egg dye. This was a great read and touches on the death of Shayla's brother who was suffering from PTSD and didn't get the help he needed.

A great story about family sticking together. A traveling doctor finding a home after heart break. About two little girls trying to make a connection with their aunt. A funny story with some serious point.

This book has also been read by 2 other members of my family. Nothing is worse than forgetting a book at someone's house that you have just started reading! Both loved it. One of the best PTSD/family books I have read to date. I laughed out loud several times. Highly enjoyable read.
Great read!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was really good I loved it

Love the bayou series
Deborah Blanchard
I absolutely loved this book. It is well written and the story flows effortlessly. I found the characters to be well developed and I felt like I knew them personally. I liked that the romance bloomed slowly, that made it
more realistic to me. I would definitely recommend this book. I was lucky enough to have won this through first reads on Goodreads. A wonderful story that I believe you will enjoy. I know that I did.

There's no place like home, once again Farrah Rochon takes us to the sleepy town of Gauthier, Louisiana.This time we find Shayla Kirkland is trying hard to reconnect with her family and become a part of the community.

The more she is treated as an outsider and accused of the craziest things the hard she tries. Can she once again become a home town girl or will she runaway once more?
Cute story nothing that will stand out that will make you remember and go wow that was a good romance.This was a first reads giveaway book.
I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads Giveaways
