Fans of Barbara Freethy, Susan Mallery, and Robyn Carr will love Barbara Samuel's award winning contemporary romances.

Jezebel's Blues is a full length contemporary romantic novel.

When the Jezebel River overflows her banks and tries to swallow the small town of Gideon in East Texas, Celia Moon is alone and frightened in the farmhouse she inherited from her grandmother. When a mesmerizing and troubled drifter washed up on her porch, she has no choice but to take him in. As the river rises, the pair retreat to the attic to ride out the storm--and discover a compelling attraction.

The daughter of two artists who were besotted with each other, Celia has always felt the odd woman out. She yearns to find a place she can call her own, a family of her own, a life that has some stability and meaning. Her grandmother's farmhouse in Gideon has always represented that.

Eric fled his grim childhood in Gideon to find a life as an acclaimed blues guitarist, but that life has been taken from him, too, and he's back in Gideon with a chip on his shoulder that hides the vast, hunger he, too, feels to find his place, his home, his life. Waiting out the storm with sunny, optimistic Celia, he wonders if maybe there's a place in Gideon for him after all, in the arms of a woman who might know more than she thinks about acceptance.

Another enjoyable gem from Barbara Samuel. The first time the Jezebel River jumped its banks, it robbed Eric Putman of his mother and eventually pitching him into the arms of the blues. The second time, it washes him into the life of Celia Moon, a woman seeking the simple life that Gideon, TX, promises to offer. Certainly, a different premise, but, as usual, Samuel spins a compelling tale.

Probably closer to 200 pages, this sweet predictable story of a blues guitar player finding new meaning in his life was a fun quick read

This book was sweet and sexy. I guess its a little bit of every woman's fantasy about meeting the sexy stranger. Celia and Eric were good strong leading characters.
