if you select this book you should get all tree of the series. blue bayou
This book was exciting from the very beginning! I could not put it down. Set among the cypress of the Lousianna Swamps a family plantation looms out of the mist complete with Romance and Suspense. Hot steamy romance and conflict between the main characters create the perfect novel. This is the first in the Callahan brothers Trilogy, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
I really loved this book. It is the first of a trilogy,the rest of which I also liked very much. I was hesitant to post them,but decided it was time to let them go and maybe someone else could enjoy them. I am actually more fond of all of Jo Ann Ross' earlier books,then of her newer ones(sorry Jo Ann).
I loved this book, except for the very end. I got the impression the author realized she was running out of time and just needed the story wrapped up. I did like the rest of the book however--Jack and Dani are great characters!
If the other two Callahan Brothers Trilogy books I have sitting on my shelf are as good as this one, I will be a very happy reader. I have been longing for a good love story with lots of emotion and Blue Bayou certainly brought that to me. I will definitely be looking forward to more JoAnn Ross books.
quick read, little mystery and romance.
If you love romances, this is a good one. JoAnn Ross is a talented storyteller. Good book for the beach or just to curl up with.
Like to get the rest of them
This was a great read!!! I can't wait to read books 2 & 3!
I really like this book, very much reminds me of Nora Roberts writing.
Great book. The first in the serie. If you can, get all three and read them in succession. The whole series was wonderful.
Great start to the trilogy.
A good story. I've always enjoyed books about the south
This is the first novel in the Callahan Brothers trilogy.

FROM THE BACK COVER:
"Danielle Dupree, daughter of a prominent judge, was the closest thing to a princess the sleepy Louisiana town of BlueBayou ever had. Her passionae teenage love affair with Jack Callahan was cut short for reasons that were never clear to Dani--but all too obvious to Jack, the sexy bad-boy son of Judge Dupree's housekeeper."
