Rumble on the Bayou by Jana DeLeon

Rumble on the BayouDeputy Dorie Berenger knew it was going to be a rough day when the alligator she found in the town drunk's swimming pool turned out to be stoned. On heroin. Now she has some big-shot city slicker from the DEA trying to take over her turf. And Agent Richard Starke is everything she'd feared-brash, demanding and way too handsome for his own good. Or hers.
The folks of Gator Bait, Louisiana, may know everything about each other, but they're sure not going to share it with an outsider. Richard wouldn't be able to catch a catfish, much less a drug smuggler, without Dorie's help. But some secrets-and some desires-are buried so deep that bringing them to the surface will take a major...Rumble On The Bayou.

My review:  Rumble on the Bayou by Jana Deleon


Rumble on the Bayou was good but not as funny or mystery as good as her other books.  The characters were not as expected they had hidden secrets to them.  They were also likable.  There was a couple of love scene but easy to pass over if wanted to.

 Deputy Dorie Berenger has two jobs. Besides being a deputy she is also a game warden who likes to fish on her day off.  She lives on a boat.  

DEA Agent Richard Starke has been chasing a drug dealer for 8 years.  He does not want to be in Gator Bait.  He does not want to work with the deputy.  He is not impressed with her. He has always lived in the city.

The setting was Gator Bait, Louisiana.  Which was rightly named.  There were a lot of gators in the area.

Dorie is called out by a local because a gator was swimming in her swimming pool.  He has a backpack in his mouth and other things.  They are surprised to find drugs & money in it.

There was one scene that was gross to imagine. Lots of violence, and action.

I like Jana DeLeon's books and look forward to reading more from her in the future.
