What I Did Today

This is how I spent the day...presenting at Robinson High School. It was a lot of fun and I think the juniors enjoyed it as well! The entire junior class of the school read BAYOU JUSTICE as an assignment, so the Q&A time was very lively!

My "baby" Grew Up On Me

Ahhh...the life of a writer. We create our own world, where we can control everything. Funny how reality crashes in. My "baby" attended her first prom tonight. I couldn't share ALL the photos, but here are some of my favorites. Let me know what you think...

Reviews for Bayou Judgment

BAYOU JUDGMENT is book three in Ms. Carollʼs Bayou series, following BAYOU JUSTICE, and BAYOU CORRUPTION. While readers will be eager to read more about these wonderful characters, and I do feel they can read BAYOU JUDGEMENT alone, it is my opinion readers will be even more deeply touched having read the previous titles. This is a series readers do NOT want to miss out on. The stories are intriguing, engaging, and fast-paced with enough romance to keep readers quickly turning pages and cheering the characters on. Within BAYOU JUDGEMENT Ms Caroll tackles some tough issues and handles them with expert care. I highly recommend BAYOU JUDGEMENT to all readers who love romantic suspense with a wonderful message. I can hardly wait for the next installment in Ms. Carollʼs series, BAYOU PARADOX coming in June.--Wendy Keel, The Romance Readers Connection, 4 1/2 stars

BAYOU JUDGMENT is a fast paced, suspense filled read. The secrets of Lagniappe leap out from every dark corner. Felicia is fearless, with Spencer determined to protect her. Spencer is caring, warm, and fearful of facing his own truth. But, if he and Felicia can both put the past to rest and find Jolie’s killer, then nothing will stop these two as they discover their love.

Robin Caroll spins a terrific story. BAYOU JUDGMENT is the third installment in the Bayou series. However, this book can stand on its own. The characters are inspirational, and the readers will embrace them. The suspense and emotion of the story along with a blooming romance in the small town of Lagniappe will keep the reader turning the pages. Secondary characters from book one, BAYOU JUSTICE, and book two, BAYOU CORRUPTION, make reappearances. The good sheriff, Bubba Theriot, is once again in the mix of the story, and in the next installment, we will see more of him. I look forward to Bayou Paradox. Enjoy.--Deborah C Jackson, Romance Reviews Today
