~
The adventures of the Gumbeaux Sistahs continues. Five, fiery southern women wage wars against their unique problems using their improbable friendships, hilarious evil-genius schemes, strategy sessions with oh-so-many cocktails, and a shared passion for good gumbo.

Single, Southern artist, Judith Lafferty, casually confesses to her Gumbeaux Sistahs that she is occasionally lonely and would like to fall in love again. Seriously - you'd think she would know to keep her mouth shut around these women by now. The sistahs tackle her problem along with their own with their usual unreasonable, extreme plots and schemes, including a kidnapping, a cupid costume, trying out pick-up lines at the cheese counter, and blind dates from hell. In helping out their friend, the sistahs help each other out as well and bring to light the many flavors of love in all of our lives. Be ready for twists, turns, laugh-out-loud times, and heart-wrenching moments. You'll be sure to recognize yourself and your best friends in the unstoppable sistahs.

EXCERPT:
Dawn opened her eyes and saw daylight streaming into the high den windows. “Is it morning already?” she thought. She realized that she had never slept all night on the couch before, but then Dan was not there to call her upstairs to bed. She glanced at a clock and saw that it was late, almost nine o’clock. The world was well and truly awake and starting the day without her. 

She started to get up and head for the kitchen and coffee, when her eyes flew wide open. Her computer was still open. A feeling of pure dread covered her from head to toe, and she whispered, “Oh no, no, no, please no! Please let me have deleted that post before I fell asleep.”

Her eyes searched the screen and found it still on her Facebook page with fifty-two likes underneath, and a comment from one Rocky Breaux that simply read, “Challenge accepted.”

GUEST POST:
- Where was your most memorable vacation and why?

Because I’m a romantic, the first one that pops into my head is when my family visited the Smoky mountains on a camping trip when I was fourteen. While skipping rocks on the river, I met a boy named Windy, who gave me my first kiss. Now, I’ve been all over the world on vacations and for business, but Windy and the Smokies will always have a sweet place in my memories.
