This is the third book in the Trillium Bay series, which takes place on a fictional island community very closely resembling Mackinac Island in the Great Lakes of Michigan. I spent a summer working on Mackinac, so it was fun reading about places I’ve been (though the names were changed). It really made the reading experience even more rich and enjoyable. You don’t need to have visited Mackinac to enjoy this book, but you should definitely go if you get the opportunity!
If you’ve read the first two books, which I would recommend, the fun and familiar characters are back. I liked seeing their stories pick up where the second book left off. This book introduces a new cast of characters, who are on island to film a movie. I don’t normally enjoy famous people stories, but this one worked for me because it was still mainly about the island and its inhabitants.
Tracy Brogan knows how to make you laugh and also pull at your heart strings. I’d love to see a fourth book about Emily’s daughter Chloe all grown up.
Thanks to the author for the opportunity to read and review this book.
He can just be her friend and not commit the greatest sin of all… asking her for forever. Probably.
**REVIEW** Erin Nicholas is a terrific storyteller. I’ve enjoyed several of her series, but this one is new for me, and I can’t wait to read more! Her stories are fun and fresh, with plots and storylines that are quite unique. She’s writes a lot of small town romance, which you think would get old and mundane. But it doesn’t! Small town Iowa (Hot Cakes series) is different than Small town Louisiana (Boys of the Bayou), which is different than Small town Nebraska (Sapphire Falls).
Paige’s family from Iowa and Mitch’s family from Louisiana, but they have a lot in common. They’re big, they’re nosy, they’re all up in each other’s business. But they care so much about those they love! Paige leaves Iowa to spend some time in Louisiana and she learns a lot about her family by spending time with Mitch’s family, and it was really cool to read about.
This book sets up the next segment of the Boys of the Bayou series, which is Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild. The three guys those books are going to be about sound amazingly sexy and fun; I am so excited about the release of those books! Plus I need to go back and read the rest of this series. My Best Friend’s Mardi Gras Wedding is currently free, so grab it if you haven’t yet!**
Four Weddings And A Swamp Boat Tour, an all-new sweet and sexy Boys of the Bayou series standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!
She’s been proposed to five times.
She even said yes to one of them.
And then broke his heart when she called it off. Not to mention her mother’s heart. And her grandmother’s. And his mother’s. And…you get the picture.
Paige Asher has now officially sworn off all dating. Diamonds give her hives. All she wants is to be a yoga-doing, cat-collecting, vegetarian in peace. Away from her marriage-crazy family and all their expectations.
So when her weekend fling turns into a real friend and offers her a place to escape, she finds herself on his doorstep in Louisiana. And right in the middle of not just one family wedding, but three. Of course.
Charming, sexy bayou boy Mitch Landry gets stuff done. Whatever anyone needs. From alligator-sitting to getting a buddy drunk to showing a woman a good time to fixing a swamp boat, he’s the man. No problem. No drama.
But he wants a hell of a lot more from Paige than a temporary friends-with-benefits arrangement. He wants to take care of her. And her five cats. He also really wants other men to stop asking her to marry them.
But if a roommate and a few orgasms are all she wants, that’s what he’ll deliver.
He can just be her friend and not commit the greatest sin of all…asking her for forever.
