Green Bayou Book #1
Rhonda R. Dennis
Publication Date-August 3, 2011
Paramedic Emily Boudreaux believes New Orleans is the perfect place for a young trauma junkie to see some action. Things start out fine enough, but years pass, and the job brings nothing but strife. Emily decides to make a fresh start by returning to her roots. She moves to the small town of Green Bayou, Louisiana. Thinking she will find peace and tranquility, Emily quickly learns that her imagination steered her wrong. Small town life offers far more tumult than she remembered! Mystery, excitement, deceit, and passion run rampant along the murky waters of Bayou Assumption. She struggles with the decision of which man to love: her amazing, new Paramedic partner, Jacob Templet or her handsome, former high school sweetheart, Deputy Pete Bergeron. Her ultimate struggle won't involve the decision of which man to be with. It is a quest for her personal survival! Praying to get out of a disastrous situation alive, Emily hopes that going home won't be the wrong decision.
My head was killing me. The last thing I wanted to do was to open my eyes. I tried drifting back into unconsciousness, but my body refused to let me go to the place where I felt no pain. I struggled to open one eye, and then finally, the other. My eyelids felt like they were weighted with lead. Finally, they stayed open long enough for me to register dim light, but focusing became another long, drawn-out process.
