Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming contemporary romance set in Louisiana’s Butterfly Bayou from New York Times best-selling author Lexi Blake.

Seraphina Guidry loves Butterfly Bayou. A young, single mom, she’s trying to find a place for herself in the town she cherishes, but past mistakes have made her wary. She adores her son but has sworn off men. She’s dedicated herself to restoring a historic house and starting her own business. A quiet life is all she wants.

Harrison Jefferys never expected to find himself in small-town Louisiana, but he has a job to do and a family to reconnect with. After years in the Army, he’s happy to spend time with his aunt Celeste and his cousins in such an idyllic spot. When he meets Seraphina, he starts to think Papillion might be a great place to call home. But a secret from Sera’s past rears its head and threatens to tear the community apart.

Caught between the woman he’s coming to love and the only family he has left, Harry knows he has to follow his heart, and with the help of the crazy, loving, meddling locals find a way to keep them both.

More Celeste story than romance

There is a romance between Seta and Harry, but, to me, it was much more the story of Celeste breaking free of the past and coming into her own. This story was not laugh out loud funny as the first one, but I laughed and clapped when Celeste gave the set downs at the dress shop. You don’t have to have read the first book of this series; those characters are only mentioned in this book.

WOW !!!!!

Loved reading this book but the narration was out of this world!
Lexi Blake is one of my favorite authors. She always tugs on the heartstrings. Her stories are always an instant purchase.
The narrator brought this book to life. I would listen to her again definitively!
Can't wait for the next Butterfly book!!!!!!

Do yourself a favor and listen!!!!

Having read many of Lexi Blake's books before, I knew this series would be good! But I didn't think I'd love it as much as I do! I have a definite love for the south and LA, Cajun, etc. so that drew me in as well! But what great stories! love it and recommend highly. I especially think that the Audible is spectacular! Jessica Almasy does a fantastic job narrating. Her Cajun, LA accent I adore...and she does a sexy man's voice!!!! Do yourself a favor and listen!!!! ❤❤❤

A great heart wrenching made me cry romance

Such an amazing story, from start to finish. The story was about so many things. A wounded warrior, a very down on her luck but happy girl, a baby, old family hurts, and a wonderful change in an old Louisiana matriarch, a wonderful K9, and old gator. What’s not to like in this story. Great narration by Jessica Almasy. I would forget it was a female reading the male parts she was just that good.

Can’t

I can’t get past the first 10 minutes of narration! I’m sorry, but some people just aren’t cutout to be a narrator! I may try to read the book later.

Absolutely Wonderful!

The narration was absolutely perfect and kept in pitch with the storytelling. I found myself laughing and gasping as the lives of two families unfolded in my mind’s eye. Bayou Baby is a wonderful experience you will want to hear(read) again!

a nice suprise

I tried reading one of Lexi Blake's other books but I didn't even get past chapter two it was too confusing and there were things going on in places that didn't seem right. But I thought I would try this book because it was completely different to the Ops type story that she had written.
I have to admit I'm not a true lover of Little Town events along with little love interests I much prefer seals, Black Ops and mission type books lots of angst and suspense.
however I was pleasantly surprised with this book and what kept me listening most of all was the narrator. Jessica was awesome her Southern accent tones and inflections for each character had me smiling and that seeemed to bring the wit and comedy that Lexi wrote to life.
the storyline it moved along at a pace that you could usually expect from a small town with lots of ladies and Southern gossip.
it surprisingly had serious undertones of the way the women were expected to behave in that era bringing forth a variety of emotion.
it was also interesting to see a backstory of class differences that makes a small town.
I think the hero and the heroine work well together and the heroine continued her sassy stance to protect her family. her brother Zep sounds like a riot and the next book is all about him so I can imagine there will be a lot of comedy looking forward to it
