Erikka Rochon is moving pretty fast in New Orleans. She’s one of the city’s top accountants and is dating one of the hottest men around. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that she likes to party hard. Unfortunately, she’s too busy partying to realize that she’s not really living. When she crashes her car into a local Winn-Dixie, Erikka realizes that it is time to step back and take a look at things. Loreauville, a small town in the bayou, is the perfect place for her to evaluate her assets. There she is surrounded by her family members.

Gabriel Cormier is a man who can’t seem to let go of the past, and the small close - minded people of Loreauville are not making it easier for him. Still, he’s content to live his life quietly away from the world, with his carpentry work keeping him busy. When he and Erikka meet, the chemistry between them ignites into a fiery catalyst that causes them to question everything either of them believes.

Emma Award winner Lynn Emery has created a literary feast with Good Woman Blues. Good Woman Blues is one scrumptious dish; hot, spicy, and sizzling to the last page. Even in their saddest moments, the finely crafted characters light up the pages of the novel with their passions for life.

As always Emery is a generous writer who never fails to give more than expected to her readers. Not only will readers enjoy Erikka and Gabriel’s story, but they will also fall in love with Erikka’s Aunt Darlene and root for this engaging woman’s happiness as well.

Good Woman Blues is a fine tribute to the passionate people of Louisiana and their glorious state. It is guaranteed to create a legion of new fans for Lynn Emery.
