Gabriel Cormier is sexy, intelligent and rich. However, through his past mistakes, he has learned that money doesn't solve every problem. The owner of a growing business, Gabriel has spent years building a wall around his heart but when he meets Erikka, there is an instant attraction. For the first time in years, he is ready to take a chance at real love. Unfortunately for both of them, the past can often leave scars that don't always heal. Can Erikka and Gabriel overcome their issues and personal demons to take a chance at happiness?
GOOD WOMAN BLUES is a well written romance novel with a good story line and likable characters. The author's use of several supporting characters keeps the novel flowing and very interesting. Although more passionate love scenes would have made the novel even better, Lynn Emery has written a book that will keep readers engrossed until the very end.

Her employer tells her to chill for a while so she takes time off visiting her Aunt Darlene in Loreauville, a home she went to as a child when she needed to escape from her own house. In spite of the loving nurturing of her Aunt, Erikka struggles with the future as she wants back up the Big Easy corporate food chain, but also worries that her depression accelerated by an empty personal life will lead her back to binging. However, everything changes when she meets Gabriel Cormier. They are attracted to one another from the start, but as love blossoms their personal demons leave both reluctant to take the next step in their relationship.
GOOD WOMAN BLUES is an intriguing contemporary romance starring two nice but haunted protagonists and a mixed support cast with several quite likable while the heroine's parents are too into their own hedonistic needs. The story line is character driven as Erikka and Gabriel struggle with their destructive pasts, their loving yet shaky present, and whether the future is together or not. Lynn Emery writes a fine Bayou romance that showcases a fine couple trying to make it over their own issues.
