Rumble on the Bayou
Rumble on the Bayou by Jana Deleon
Genre: Adult Fiction
Publisher: Leisure Books
Source: Purchased for fun read
The worst crime Deputy Dorie Berenger usually faces in Gator Bait is Maylene Thibodeux weaving about with too much liquor in her and too few clothes on her. This time Maylene's troubles herald events far more serious. An alligator winds up in her pool stoned on heroine, and the drug trail leads to Gator Bait itself with big-city DEA Agent Richard Starke hot on the trail. Funny thing is, there could be an even bigger problem: Dorie's feeling pretty hot for Agent Starke. Part of the growing romantic mystery genre--in which romance and mystery tie the knot with chick-lit's blessing--this debut novel is chock-full of quirky small-town characters and an entertaining, offbeat love story. The mystery pulls its weight, taking readers on a ride as intriguing and wild as a flat-bottom-boat race in the bayou
I don’t have any review copies lined up until next month so now I’m reading just for fun.
This was a funny book and a great read. I’ve read some of Dixie Cash’s books and this one is just as much fun. I love Dorie, she is tough, beautiful and smart.
Gator Bait is your typical small town where everyone knows everyone and looks out for each other. When it’s discovered that a notorious drug runner is using Gator Bait as a headquarters Dorie has to question which of her friends/family would do such a thing. She has to wrestle with doing what’s right and trying to stay true to her town and her friends.
This book was a hoot and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to have a laugh or two and enjoy a great book as well.
