The best! 28 July 2002
By Elle A. W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was the best and I learned a lot about art history and even more about the relationships "Creole" blacks with other AAs's in Louisiana. The romance was excellent too,as was the plot, and I got a new sense of New Orleans even though I have visited it many times.I give it five stars and will read other books by Ms.Emery.

wonderful multicultural romance 2 May 2002
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mrs. St. Denis and her grandson Noel, CEO of the Treme Corporation, hire Taylor Gallery to appraise the family art collection. Lyrissa Rideau, an assistant at Taylor, is especially pleased with the assignment because she has a personal interest. She believes that the ancestors of the St. Denis brood stole a valuable painting from her family. Lyrissa plans to get it back.

While checking into the St. Denis collection that is not fully catalogued and is spread among the extended family, Lyrissa finds Noel courting her though she rejects his advances. Noel is stunned, but he is beginning to believe in love at first sight, as he wants Lyrissa at his side. Overcoming unbelievable barriers, Noel and Lyrissa fall in love, but she wonders what will happen to their relationship when he learns how she manipulated the St. Denis and the prize she covets for her family.

Though the obstinate Lyrissa slows down the romance, her resolve enables the reader to better understand what motivates her. The story line engages the audience as the agendas of the secondary characters pop up whenever it seems as if the lead couple is taking a step closer to intimacy. Noel is a warm, compassionate person, perhaps a bit too perfect, as he patiently tries to get his beloved to see that they belong together. Lynn Emery furbishes a wonderful multicultural romance that emphasizes the depth of the female lead character's quandary between her heart and a lifetime of lessons about the ignoble thieving St. Denis brood.

Class Lines Can't Stop Love 11 Aug. 2002
By Vannie Ryanes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lyrissa Rideau's two aunts have always believed that now deceased members of the very wealthy Creole St. Denis family stole a painting from their family years ago. Through years of listening to her aunts discuss the painting and the thieving St. Denis family, Lyrissa is certain that the story is true. The painting is now valuable both financially and figuratively. The aunts hope that repossession of the painting will also elevate their social standing to where it once was before the family was duped by the St. Denis'.
Georgina St. Denis along with her grandson Noel, have hired the Taylor Gallery to pull the family art together and appraise the entire collection. As assistant to gallery owner Shelton Taylor, Lyrissa is in the perfect position to reclaim her families painting. However, Lyrissa soon finds herself being romanced by none other than handsome and persuasive Noel St. Denis, CEO of his families powerful company, Treme Corporation. Lyrissa rejects his advances but can't ignore her increasingly warming feelings toward Noel. He certainly is not what she expected from a St. Denis. But the romance will never get off the ground if Noel's grandmother or his long time friend Felice can stop it. Felice and Georgina St. Denis are cut from the same fabric and both believe that Lyrissa is not good enough for Noel.
As always Ms Emery's novels combine romance with intriquing plots, emotional truths and unexpected turns. 'Tell Me Something Good' is good reading.

Art Undercover 25 Jan. 2003
By Luv2Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lyrissa Rideau has been given the job of trying to secure her family's treasured painting so she gets a job in the logical place for art to show up -- in an art dealer's shop.
Noel St. Denis' paths cross with Lyrissa's when he escorts his grandmother to the dealer's shop. Noel is very taken with Lyrissa and the feeling is mutual. However, Lyrissa's family reminds her of her obligation to family and also the commitment Noel has for his family.
"Tell Me Something Good" is about two young people who have certain family values they must honor, but who are thrown together and cannot so easily forget their feelings for each other. What will they do? Will they take "The Sunday Stroll" into paradise or will they let their families' problems dictate their lives? Read it to find out.
Ms. Emery has written another great book worth buying and reading!
