Emily Breaux’s abusive, alcoholic husband keeps drinking away her dreams… 

When he cleans out their bank account once too often, Emily packs her meager belongings and returns to her hometown of Bon Chance, Louisiana. Surrounded by the love and support of a group of old friends—collectively known as The Boonies—she’s determined to change her life and open her own catering company. 
Contractor Noah Devereaux wants to help Emily rebuild more than just her family home… 
Noah is an Iraq war veteran and fighting his own battle with PTSD, and he feels he has little to offer anyone. His nightmares and panic attacks leave him exhausted and on edge, yet he can’t help but find solace in Emily’s quiet presence. 
Everyone has dreams, but it takes more than a wish to make them come true… 
Emily struggles night and day to scrape together the money to start her business, but this doesn’t stop her friendship with Noah from blooming into something much more. He’s always there to cheer her on, and she’s his bit of tranquility for untangling his troubled mind. 
It turns out starting over isn’t easy. Was coming back to Bon Chance a horrible mistake, a sign of failing to make it in the larger world? 
But all her friends have returned as well, so maybe—just maybe—having the courage to go back to the beginning will prove the ingredients for a life of love and happiness have been waiting here all along…

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Emily just finished the morning shift at the diner, she saw a billboard telling her to run away to the Gulf Coast. For her though it wouldn't be running away it would be going home.

Noah called and asked her to go to the Memorial that they are going to have for Ben and they are going to open and there is going to be a spaghetti cook off.

Carly is Noah's sister, opening Snappers Bar and Grill with Noah. Glinda is Emily's grandmothers best friend, she owns the inn. 

This is the Debut Novel for A.L. Vincent and I can honestly say that I'm looking forward to reading more books by A.L. Vincent. This book is very well written and the characters are very well developed. I felt very connected to the characters.

A.L. Vincent is a teacher/writer who lives in the heart of Cajun Country. Born in Oklahoma, A.L. became fascinated with South Louisiana after reading Interview With the Vampire. Finally, she became a Cajun transplant in 2001. When not getting lost in a story line, A.L. can be found cooking or enjoying live local music. A.L. has one son, and a furball of a dog aptly named Furby.
