Easy Melody by Kristen Proby….Blog Tour Stop & Review

EM Amazon



Callie Mills never intended to return to New Orleans and the life she left behind more than a decade ago. There was no need to open old wounds when she had the life she’d worked hard for in Denver. But when she’s fired from her awesome job in Colorado and her father dies, she has no choice but to return home to run the derelict bar left to her in the heart of the French Quarter. Callie must not only face bad memories but turn The Odyssey into something she can be proud of.

And who better to help bring in crowds of people than Declan Boudreaux?

Declan is a sought-after musician who knows he’s good at what he does and loves doing it. Known to pack the house, he also loves women and doesn’t expect to be knocked back a step by the beautiful new owner of The Odyssey. Callie is sharp, gorgeous and funny, and makes him yearn for something he never has before… Commitment.

But when Callie’s able to turn the business around with renovations, making it one of the hottest bars in the Quarter, will she sell out and leave her past behind once and for all, or will Declan be able to convince her that’s she’s where she needed to be all along…in his arms.

My Review:

Easy Melody is the third installment in author Kristen Proby’s Boudreaux Series, a series I have loved since the very beginning.  This book was just as wonderful as the first two and I can’t get enough of this family and their love interests!

A whole lot has happened in Callie’s personal life in a short amount of time.  Her father died, she was left his bar in New Orleans, and now she has just been dumped both romantically and professionally by her long-term boyfriend.  Things just about sucked.  So when she returns to NOLA to figure out what to do to get this newly inherited bar running in the positive, the last thing she needed was any type of distraction.  Especially of the male musician variety.  Unfortunately all those intentions go right out the window when she sees Declan…

What starts out as a fling turns into something much more and it scares the hell out of both of them.  Can two people looking for anything but a commitment finally desire one?

One of the things I love about Ms. Proby’s writing is whenever I start one of her books, I know it’s going to be an effortless read and an enjoyable experience.  She writes with an ease that I know all readers enjoy, myself included.  I can always count on wonderful dialog and interesting characters, especially with the Boudreaux clan!  I loved Declan and Callie.  Callie is strong and determined but also has a soft side that I just adored. Declan is a charmer indeed and has an ease about him that I could eat up with a spoon.  And that accent? Swoon. Every time he calls Callie “sugar”, I melt! The heat and passion between them was delectable and there was a scene involving a piano that burned up the pages *fans self* mhhhmmmm!  I also love reading the interaction between the siblings and the partners who have joined in the family.  Coming from a large and close family myself, it’s always a joy to read their tight-knit group.

Once again, Ms. Proby delivers emotion, passion, and enjoyable characters from start to finish.  I can’t wait to read more of my favorite New Orleans family!
