Deb hadn’t flown in over 20 years. In 1989, at the age of 22, Deb was enrolled at Griffiss Airforce Base to become a commercial pilot. Somewhere between dating her yuppie fiancé and planning their wedding in Chicago, Deb developed claustrophobia—a fear of enclosed spaces. I blame the yuppie. Deb couldn’t get on a plane for love that day, but she could do it 20 years later ...more

Louisiana Latte by Rebecca Henry is a delightful story that actually has more depth than I expected. You know how typical and shallow chicklit can be sometimes, but fortunately, this story is an interesting take on the bond between sisters. Deb and Becky are sisters on a flight together, and they end up reminiscing about their lives, and the story flashes back to twenty years ago. Th

A funny and heartwarming read about the love between two sisters who don't let their differences come between. I love how this book speaks to the way society views women who like make up and expensive things as inherently selfish and shallow. Deb is a lovely example of why no one should judge a book by its cover.

A truly touching and fun story of sisterly love!

I absolutely loved this book! It’s an uplifting, easy, fun read and the author’s writing style is relatable, laid back and down to earth from the start. She gives you a wonderful peek into the life of Deb and Becky, two sisters who couldn’t be more different but are so lovingly connected by a sisterly bond that most of us only dream of. It’s also full of laughs and hilarious anecdotes, but in all honesty, situations we can all totally relate to! By

Fantastic. By page 12, I was in love with Deb and wanted to be best friends. This book had me laughing so hard that I had to put it down several times and wait to breathe again. Rebecca flawlessly takes you back into stories that you feel like you've lived through.

How fun is this book cover? That is what drew me to this and boy did it deliver.

Once started I couldn’t stop reading Louisiana Late every chance I got I would read another chapter. At the end, I was disappointed that there was no more to read, I was so invested in the characters I wanted more. I truly loved every one in this book, the relationships, drama, laughs, just everything.

Extremely readable and relatable. Just a great piece of writing from Rebecca Henry.

Gifted author Rebecca Henry’s LOUISIANA LATTE is such a fun, heartwarming gem! Leading the charge in this delightful chick-lit novel are over-the-top Deb and level-headed Becky, two sisters whose quirky antics, endearing personalities, inside jokes and infectious interactions will have you laughing out loud, all while relating to their familial bond. The book balances a perfect mix of humor and drama as the sisters’ journey (which flashes back to their childhood then brings us back to the presen ...more

This was one of my first experiences reading a book in the chick-lit genre and I am extremely glad that I picked it up. I enjoyed this so very much and its been a while since a book made me laugh so hard. I really want to try to keep this review spoiler free since I had seen no spoilers going in to this. Which absolutely added to my experience since I didn't know what to expect going in. Yet, it still somehow surpassed my expectations. Unlike most of my reads, I found myself savouring this one c ...more

Humorous and Heartwarming!

This is a quick and fun read about the adventures of two sisters with distinct styles and outlooks on life. Diva Deb is the focus of the story,but the story is told from her younger sister Becky’s point of view. Becky is the one that brings you to tears of laughter as she weaves humorous antics and relatable situations throughout the story. Encounters with an aggressive (but well intentioned) massage therapist to implant eyelash wearers will have you laughing out loud.

Louisiana Latte by Rebecca Henry, is a fun and entertaining read that keeps the reader engaged with the story from start to finish. If you are looking for a great weekend read, or a holiday book then this is the perfect read.

Deb the main character of the novel enrolls to become a commercial pilot but encounters a fear of flying. This is a beautifully written and modern novel, even though the story involves flashbacks. Full of drama and family oriented with a dash of romance this is the perfect

This is the first "chick lit" book I have ever read. My usual reads are things like George R.R. Martin, Stephen King, and Ann Rule, so this was way off what I normally read. It was a light, easy read with some really funny parts (but don't worry--no spoilers from me!) I liked Becky better, as I could relate to her much more than I could Deb. The two of them were extreme versions of me & my own sister; the two of us couldn't be more different than each other, but we love each other and embrace ea ...more

Have you ever read a story that was so eloquently woven together that you could picture every detail, every scene? Rebecca Henry is an absolute genius in the art of character development and scene building, not to mention absurdly talented with dialogue. I'm still laughing over Deb and her antics--she is the epitome of high-maintenance but too soft-hearted to hold it against her, while Becky is the down to earth and lovable sister who manages to hold everything together (including her sister, le ...more

This story had so much depth to it. You get so many aspects that go into a fun and entertaining read. It's thought-provoking and heart-warming while also managing to be funny and overall just fun. I loved the banter between the sisters, you can feel their connection and how close they are. Such a quick and easy read that really packs a punch and incorporates plenty of depth to the pages.

Thank You to: RABT Book Tours and Rebecca Henry, author for a complimentary copy.

Louisiana Latte is a captivating novel that is sure to draw you in to a story full of depth, family drama, and love. The story flashes back to twenty years ago as you read the interesting backstory of the bond between sisters, Deb and Becky. Deb is more of a diva and Becky is more of a family person. They are completely opposites but learn so much from each other. Louisiana Latte is a fast-paced story that is full o

This book was fantastic! I’m a sucker for anything that has to do with sisters, and Louisiana Latte did not disappoint! I really think the author did a wonderful job with Deb and Becky. They are very realistic and complex characters. They learned things about each other as the story goes on and compliment each other well, being from opposite ends of the spectrum. I found myself laughing out loud at many parts of the witty dialogue and comical scenes. My heartstrings were tugged as well, because ...more

Not only is this book funny, and true but shows real love and connection between two sisters. This book gives a little insight on their crazy fun lives together that draws you in to be apart of. Making the reader feel like they are a part of something personal to them but giving you a little insight of their lives and mad secrets. Most recommended for a light read of giggles and being part of something special.

What an ingenious blend of simplicity and extravagance! There is a lot to admire in Louisiana Latte. In the story, Becky and Deb are sisters with unique personalities; they shine with beauty, intelligence, goodheartedness, and an enjoyable sense of humor. How I loved Becky’s determination to find Mr. Perfect for her sister and the way Deb rocks her high heels! Have you ever tried to walk on a treadmill or take a shower in your shoes (stilettos)? Deb does it with tremendous style. I enjoyed this ...more

Since this book was so short I thought why not make the review short to match it as well. Sorry, if that is weird to do but I think it would be something cool.

This book features mainly a relationship between the main character and her sister throughout the whole book. It goes through the travels, their fears and their sibling relationship. Both of the characters like to deal with thing through humor instead of going through the brunt which was probably something that they did to protect themselv

Louisiana Latte was not quite what I expected. The synopsis leads one to think that there might be a little bit of mystery or suspense in this story. What you get instead is a great start to a story about Deb, a trained commercial pilot, who suddenly finds herself screaming to be let off the plane as it taxis down the runway in preparation for takeoff. We immediately fast forward 20 years where Deb and her sister are traveling to a business convention in Louisiana, during which they reminisce ab ...more

Two sisters on a business trip find themselves reminiscing about their lives and discovering who the other truly is in author Rebecca Henry’s self-described chick-lit comedy, “Louisiana Latte”. Here is the synopsis:

This is the first book that I have read by this author. I was drawn in by the description of it. This book is about two sisters, who are on a business trip together and are reminiscing. These sisters live two completely separate lives. I have 3 sisters who live 833 miles from me so I can understand the need to catch up, relive memories and vent when you get together. This book is a short, enjoyable read. I love that the characters are well written. I was chuckling a lot while I was reading along ...more

Entertaining and short

I rarely give more than three 🌟 for this short a book. This was however a very humorous story of two sisters and their relationship and a little about what makes people what they are. It didn’t end as you would expect a book to end so there was no finish but it is funny, warm, original and well-written making it easy to read and enjoy.

I loved the characters in the story. Deb, a bright and sociable diva with a big heart, and her sweet sister Becky travel to a business convention in Louisiana. As the story unfolds, the sister’s interaction is endearing and lovely. Even more so, as they reminisce on their lives and family with hilarious anecdotes. It is full of humour, a fun read. I really enjoyed it.
