EBOOK READ Forever with You Bayou Dreams #5

Forever with You Bayou Dreams #5Forever With You was a delightful book to read Ms Rochon has continued her streak of creating a vivid image of the town of Gauthier Louisiana as a uaint small town Leslie who was mentioned in a previous book is recovering from the death of her husband after he suffered from PTSD Which I must say Ms Rochon handled this topic beautifully She falls for Gabriel her daughters wide eyed ounger teacher This is one of my favorite series to read I envision living in this small community and having the familial and social relationships that are portrayed in the stories Another great book in the Bayou Dreams series by Farrah Rochon Farrah takes us back to the fictional town of Gauthier Louisiana and we get Shayla s sister in law s story Leslie is busy raising her 2 kids alone after her husband died and doesn t have time for love Gabriel is the science teacherassistant principal who is The Piper in the Wind younger than Leslie but is the only male who sparks her interest There are several cameos from couples in the other book I absolutely loved Leslie and Gabriel s story and I am ready for the next book n the series This is a warm friendly short romance set in a bayou town There s a new teacher at the school and he has an inappropriate crush on a member of the School Board a lady who is widowed with kids How wrong would that be especially as he needs her support in his interim job as assistant principal The lady is forever being introduced to nice single men by the good members of the Baptist Church but she has no time to socialise with anyone A job kids school board duties and homework time Actually she also needs to work through some issues around her late husband as well before she can start to think of another relationship Nicely atmospheric and a somewhat sexier story thanou d expect especially on school grounds Forever with You is a story that takes place in a town called Gauthier Ms Rochon apparently pens a series called Bayou Dreams that I believe centers around this fictional town and his populated by characters who play a minor role in this book Despite its connection to the series Forever with You is a standalone title and I had very little difficulty understanding what was going on and I think other readers "Will Find It Easy To Follow As "find it easy to follow as Now to my review This is a very sweet and tame tale about a widowed mother named Leslie who has two girls Her life is all about raising her daughters following the death of her husband some ears ago When not focused on raising her daughters her life focuses on work and her place as president of the Parents Teacher Organization Some people in town especially the little old ladies at church feel it s time for Leslie to meet a man but that isn t a part of her plan If only the new principle man but that isn t a part of her plan If only the new principle t so tempting Gabriel is the school s newest teacher and the interim principle He has nothing but eyes on Leslie and of course doing a good job so that one day he ll become a permanent principle His attraction to Leslie is instant and he doesn t care about her position in the PTA the fact that she s a student s mom or that she s a couple of ears older than he is Unfortunately as it begins to look as if there might be something between himself and the widowed mom there s trouble at the school This is the kind of trouble that could put the brakes on any advancement he s made with Leslie and also become a permanent road block in his career plans and his plans to help his mother and siblings Of course Leslie isn t without her own issues She s not sure she s ready. New life New love The tranuil bayou town of Gauthier is the perfect place for widowed single mother Leslie Kirkland to raise her two daughters Until she's elected president of the elementary school's Parent Teacher Organization Caught in a clash between the community and progressive sc. ,
