Review: Home to Cypress Bayou (Louisiana Book 1) by Susan Sands


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…
My Review: 
First book in a new series and I’m already hooked. 
I couldn’t get enough of this book.  It was heartfelt, inspiring and intriguing.  I loved seeing Leah and Jake work through the issues that caused their breakup and finally find their way back to each other.  When the family secrets started to come out (and boy were there some big ones), I worried what the outcome would be, as I was already invested in these characters and only wanted the best for them.  I also enjoyed the Louisiana setting of the book and through the author’s words, I could easily visualize it all.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series and see what happens next.
