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.
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!
