And I would again. Huge thanks to Erika for joining me today! More than a century ago, lighthouse keeper Linus Harris left his beloved wife and waded into the ocean with three other men to reunite with their mermaid lovers. A hopeless romantic who is profoundly connected to the ocean in which she lost her mother, Tess ekes out a living as a wood-carver and longs to find a love as mystical as the sea. But when Tom discovers Tess working on her sculpture, an unlikely and passionate affair ignites between them that just might be the stuff of legend itself—even as it brings to the surface a long-buried secret that could tear everything apart.
And you can find Erika online at her website and on Twitter! Hi, Erika! Both story lines sucked me in, and I adored every minute I got to spend on the coast of Maine with you. I was very fortunate to have the landscape I did to grow up in—and the freedom to explore it. I want the same for my kiddos, as we all do, right? Fabulous interview.

I learned so much about you, Erika. Slow down, Nellie. Such a tough lesson in the virtues and value of patience. This looks so good! I love your story about your upbringing in the refurbed village tavern. I will definitely check out your book; it sounds fantastic. Admin Uncategorized November 15, And now, on with the interview: 1.

Little Gale Gumbo
I finally just gave up, which I've only ever done with one other book. The writing wasn't terrible, but some of the descriptions weren't as pointed as I would've liked. Events with the characters, and their overall portrayal also left something to be desired. I know others might enjoy this one, but for me it ran too near the "romance novel" line and involved characters that just weren't believable. No one becomes fully enraptured with another in a single day. Adult huma This one disappointed me. Adult humans tend to have SOME modicum of hesitance toward opening up to their fellows initially, right?
Alright then. Jul 01, Cathy rated it really liked it. While the story has some sad moments, esp. I enjoyed the author's style of blending current storyline with the story from the past. I'll definitely keep note of Erika Marks name for future books to read as she writes them! Sep 15, KyBunnies rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone. Shelves: , crime-mystery , contest-wins , modern , novel , romance , drama. The author wrote a wonderful book. There is some jumping back into the past but the author has it written so the reader is not confused.
This is a wonderful fast read. I honestly could not put it down. I can not wait to try the Gumbo recipe at the end of the book. Jul 10, Myra rated it it was amazing. What a story. I thought I had it figured out and then I was wrong and then I was wronger. Ericka Marks simmers up a wonderful pot as complex as the real thing and equally as delicious. May 23, Ann rated it it was amazing. Little Gale Gumbo is a novel about family secrets, sisters, love, and voodoo.
The characters are well developed and bring the story to life. The setting is a character. One of the best books I've read this year. Can't wait for the next. Feb 06, Ann Warner rated it really liked it.

A lovely, delicious, intriguing book. The author did an amazing job of weaving together the past and present story lines. And she made me care about her characters. Jun 27, Lani Myers rated it it was amazing. I just adored all of the characters. The chain of who loves who was intriguing and how that affected their lives.
Plus a little mystery in the mix. Oct 17, Suzanne Elizabeth Anderson rated it it was amazing. To escape an abusive marriage that threatens her two teenage daughters, Camille Bergeron flees her beloved New Orleans and lands on a small island off the coast of Maine. Once there she finds refuge by renting the upstairs apartment in a house belonging to Ben Haskell and his son Matthew.
While this might be the fou To escape an abusive marriage that threatens her two teenage daughters, Camille Bergeron flees her beloved New Orleans and lands on a small island off the coast of Maine. The actions of the characters are driven by their love for one another, the obvious love between mother and daughters, the sibling rivalry and fierce loyalty between the sisters, Dahlia and Josie, and their star-crossed love for the men in their lives.
The story is told in a series of alternating chapters between the aftermath of a tragedy in the present, and the events in the past years that led up to the event and provide the impetus for the tangled relationships that created the tragedy. I enjoyed the book thoroughly and quickly got caught up in the relationships between the sisters and the men they eventually fall in love with for better or worse.
Thankfully, other than that one inexplicable wrinkle, Little Gale Gumbo reads like comfort food. The relationships are complex, substantial, fraught with complications and uneasy answers, but ultimately satisfying. As a reader, I found myself turning the pages quickly to find out if the high school lovers would be re-united, if the tragic accident was just that or a malicious act of revenge that would tear lovers apart. While food plays a central role in this novel, in the end the strength of the story is in how it portrays the healing love between broken hearts, the power of that love to heal in unexpected ways.

As they grew up, Dahlia had a on-and-off romance with Jack, the sherriff, while Josie married Wayne, a local boy. Yet, the love triangle between Matthew, Dahlia, and Josie was never completely resolved. When Ben falls into a coma, and Matthew comes back, old secrets from the pasts resurfaces and threatens all three of them and their lives This book is about the romantic triangles of the two generations. Jack loves Dahlia, but was heartbroken when they broke up. He went on to marry another and have a child.
In the end, he was divorced and concluded that he had never forgotten Dahlia.
checkout.midtrans.com/tortosa-donde-conocer-mujeres.php Poor Matthew could never face the fact that Dahlia never really loves him along. Josie, who never forgot Matthew, nearly destroyed her own marriage with Wayne because she can never let go of the past. Even though this book is complicated, I still enjoyed every bit of it. Some parts were really heartbreaking. My favorite couple in the book is Camille and Ben. They truly deserve each other, especially since Camille had to put up with her horrible husband. The relationship between Dahlia, Josie, and Matthew were a little too drama and soap opera for me, but I like that Josie finally chose her husband over Matthew.
Wayne is such a nice guy and way too understanding. All in all, this is a thoughtful, complex read that should be savored slowly.
