Description

For Louisiana Richardson, desperate times call for crazy-like-a-fox measures. As the new librarian at Alligator Bayou Parish's struggling library, she's returning to her Southern roots and facing trouble hotter than fresh cornbread out of the oven. Somehow, she's got to draw readers back in and prove the library is still vital--even as domineering parish board head Mrs. Gunderson plans to shut it down for good. If that means Louise has to resort to some unconventional methods--like outrageous inter-library Zumba classes, and forming a book club that's anything but Oprah-approved--well, it wouldn't be the first time she went out on a limb. . . Soon Louise is doing everything she can to rally the whole community. Before she knows it, she's sparking welcome changes--and uncovering surprising secrets--throughout her new town. And between glasses of sweet tea, bowls of mouth-watering gumbo and the warmth of a tantalizing new love, the newly single Southern mom might find a life she never imagined--and a place to finally call home. Emily Beck Cogburn crafts a novel full of charm, delight and acres of heart about the enduring joys of storytelling and the ways hope can write life's most extraordinary moments.

Professional reviews

"Kate Forbes's narration brings to mind the greats of contemporary Southern characters: the gossiping ladies of STEEL MAGNOLIAS and the rebellious best friends in FRIED GREEN TOMATOES. Forbes's narration turns a predictable plot into an enjoyable ride by bringing the Southern belles in this story to life, along with its main character, Louisiana, who is a fish out of water. Despite her Southern name, Louisiana hails from Minnesota. Now she unexpectedly finds herself working alongside her best friend in Alligator Bayou Parish's struggling library, which is trying to increase circulation any way it can. Small-town life becomes more exciting with the introduction of steamy romance books and Zumba classes at the library. Book lovers are sure to enjoy this sweet gem, narrated by the talented Forbes.
