Susan Sands: Author in Residence

We are very excited to welcome back Susan Sands to Read It Again Bookstore! Join us on August 20th from 3 to 5 pm for a meet and greet with the author of Home to Cypress Bayou! We can't wait to hang out with Susan for a couple of hours and we know our customers will enjoy getting to know her. 

Home to Cypress Bayou

It's not true that you can't go home again, but do you want to?

Paris gallery owner Leah Bertrand returns to her historic, moss-draped Louisiana hometown to fulfill a deathbed promise to her friend and mentor. She's been matched as a bone marrow donor to a stranger, yet the match is so close that doctors suspect a family relationship. But how? Leah's family has always seethed with drama, but this visit home promises secrets as deep, dark, and mysterious as the water in Cypress Bayou. And then her ex arrives, and Leah realizes the feelings and secrets she buried years ago have come back to haunt her.

Dr. Jake Carmichael returns to Cypress Bayou after years away and is shocked to see Leah, his childhood sweetheart and first love, back in town and on his patient roster. The sparks still burn, but when he tries to discuss what went wrong and perhaps rebuild their relationship, Leah refuses.

Jake's not ready to give up on their future together. But Leah fears she has even more to lose this time...
