Book Review: Tangled up in You By A.L. Vincent

Tangled up in You:

Emily Breaux’s abusive, alcoholic husband keeps drinking away her dreams…

When he cleans out their bank account once too often, Emily packs her meager belongings and returns to her hometown of Bon Chance, Louisiana. Surrounded by the love and support of a group of old friends—collectively known as The Boonies—she’s determined to change her life and open her own catering company.

Contractor Noah Devereaux wants to help Emily rebuild more than just her family home…

Noah is an Iraq war veteran and fighting his own battle with PTSD, and he feels he has little to offer anyone. His nightmares and panic attacks leave him exhausted and on edge, yet he can’t help but find solace in Emily’s quiet presence.

Everyone has dreams, but it takes more than a wish to make them come true…

Emily struggles night and day to scrape together the money to start her business, but this doesn’t stop her friendship with Noah from blooming into something much more. He’s always there to cheer her on, and she’s his bit of tranquility for untangling his troubled mind.

It turns out starting over isn’t easy. Was coming back to Bon Chance a horrible mistake, a sign of failing to make it in the larger world?

But all her friends have returned as well, so maybe—just maybe—having the courage to go back to the beginning will prove the ingredients for a life of love and happiness have been waiting here all along…


Who said you can't go home again? Emily Breaux seemed to prove that statement wrong. After being fed up with her no good, jobless, can't pay the bills, drunken husband, Emily decides it's time to go home to be with her friends at the one year anniversary of her friend Benjamin's death.

The characters were well developed, letting their personalities shine through the words to bring a vivid picture to mind. The plot was intriguing, but a little predictable. It was a little slow in the beginning, but found a nice steady pace later which helped to capture my attention. I enjoyed the book, but found there was a need for some touching up.
