New love is put to the test in the sultry bayous of Louisiana in the latest from Family Circle Award Winning Author Lauren Faulkenberry.

With her friend Kate in town, Enza's looking forward to her first Christmas in Bayou Sabine, surrounded by those she cares about most. But instead the holiday ends in turmoil. One guest puts someone Enza loves—and her relationship with Jack—in danger, and another guest brings news that makes Enza question the circumstances surrounding her mother's departure.
