Joining the Navy was the second best thing that ever happened to Justin "Cage" LeBlanc, the rebel son of a no-account convict. The first was Emelie Gaudet, the love of his life . . . until he was forced to leave town and swore there would be snow on the bayou before he ever returned. Now, only his mortally ill grandma can bring the injured Navy SEAL back to Terrebone Parrish, where he must face his past-and Emelie, who's even more beautiful than she was all those years ago.

Bourbon Street blues singer Emelie is once bitten, twice shy. When she learns that Justin is back in town, she wants nothing to do with the once wild Cajun teenager who fled with the law on his tail-and broke her heart. But she can't deny the red-hot attraction between them . . . or his efforts to prove he's finally changed his hell-raising ways. Can she trust that this time the bad boy of the bayou will be the best man for her?

So basically I now need to read every one of Sandra Hill’s books ever written. SNOW ON THE BAYOU is the first book I’ve read by her and it will in no way be my last. In this book we see hints of the characters from her previous books and just by their brief descriptions, I need to know their story. SNOW ON THE BAYOU takes place in Louisiana with two lost lovers who promised each other forever as teens then got torn apart by the girl’s father. Justin “Cage” and Emelie’s story was one for the soul. And it made me really want red beans and rice. Not crawfish though; food of the gods? More like cockroaches of the water.

After their departure, their lives take opposite paths. Emelie is now a divorced mask designer well-known everywhere. Her business is booming and her life is pretty fantastic. Something’s missing though. COULD IT BE? After her father shoved Justin out of town and shipped him off to the army, Justin made something of himself. He is now a Navy SEAL. And not the scrawny teen he one was. Nope. Not one little bit.

And then we have Tante Lulu who you can’t help to love to death with her Saint Jude affixation and healing powers. And her wardrobe choices.

SNOW ON THE BAYOU is just a good book. It’s funny, sweet, sexy, but also has a dangerous edge to it. It’s an un-put-down-able: I read it all in one sitting. Quick, sweet and oh so very lovely, this book needs to be on your to-read list!
