Coffee, Sweet Tea or Lemonade & Me?
By: Bobbie Hazelton
About the Book
It is New Year’s Eve in Natchez, Mississippi. Mattie and her two cousins, Anne and Abby, are trying to decide on their New Year’s resolutions. Their final decision: attend Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Louisiana.
However, while attending one of the zany Mardi Gras parades, Mattie and her cousins become separated. As prearranged Mattie goes to one of the more popular pubs to wait for the cousins to show up. There, she meets Marc LaBlanc, a handsome rancher from Lafayette.
A short time lapses and the “I do’s” between Marc and Mattie are said. Thus begins this love story: one with happiness, caring, and sharing.
Then along comes trouble. Big trouble!
After seeing Mattie’s husband at a Fourth of July barbecue, Mattie’s ex-sister-in-law—who was a well-known stripper at Billy Rocket’s Club for Southern Gentlemen—decides she wants Marc for her own.
Trouble in paradise? Most assuredly. However, Mattie isn’t ready to give Marc up just yet. Bring it on, Lilly Sue. Or should we call you… Pepper?
About the Author
Bobbie Hazelton was born and raised in a very small town in the northwestern corner of Arkansas. In later years she spent time with friends in Louisiana and, there, she was fortunate to experience the cultures of the southern people. After many visits to the French Quarter in New Orleans, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and Natchez, Mississippi, she became more familiar with their way of life. In Coffee, Sweet Tea or Lemonade & Me? she tried to capture the true voice of the south: the way they talk, act, and think; their moods, clipped words, and, most of all, just how important family is to them. Yes, she found that family was, and still is, the most important thing to the people of the south.
