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.

Sweet Story

I like to listen to books on long bike rides, and this was perfect for that purpose. The story is simple and even though doesn't require concentration to follow the story, it's funny, as well as touching.
I'm a huge fan of the narrator, Jessica Almasy. I find that just the way she says things can make me laugh. I think her narration was a large part of what made it so enjoyable for me.

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!!!!!!

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.

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.

Sweet, not hot

This is a different style for Lexi Blake. Sweet, not really hot. A little slow in places.

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!

Worth the credit and the time

It isn’t often that a listen holds my interest. Or makes me laugh out loud. Or get teary-eyed. This book did all 3. The narration was SUPERB!! The story was very good, as usual for this author. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
