The Cajun Embassy series follows three Columbia journalism coeds homesick for Louisiana who find comfort in a bowl of Cajun gumbo. Each book — Ticket to Paradise, Damn Yankees and Gone Pecan — follow these dedicated friends as they make their way into the world.
Because love — and a good gumbo — cures everything.
TICKET TO PARADISE - Two desperate people. One winning Lottery ticket. He knows, she doesn’t. Will they both realize that love, more than money, is the ticket to paradise?
DAMN YANKEES - Magnolia “Maggie” Delta Mallory has two major problems in her life: she is setting a world record in job layoffs and her luck with men is disastrous. Broke, discouraged and one year shy of 30, Maggie attends a journalism conference in Vegas in the hopes of landing another magazine job. Instead, she lands a husband. A Yankee one, no less.
GONE PECAN - Dewey Hennessey left Louisiana and Michael Arceneaux, the love of her life, with so many questions unanswered. Now, fourteen years after Dewey went “gone pecan,” her grandmother delivers an ultimatum — return to Louisiana and make things right or she’ll never speak to her again. Can Dewey leave her high-profile job in Hollywood, even if it means restoring her broken heart? And even though Michael has forged ahead with his life, he can’t deny having Dewey back in town will make his life complete. But can he get past the pain she caused fourteen long years ago.
