Bookshelf Friday - Mississippi Nights

Today I'm jumping up and down. This book is by Miss D.M. Webb, one of my critique partners, and it's her debut novel! I'm doing a little Snoopy dance with her! I have read this book from cover to cover before there even was a cover:) And isn't that cover uh-MAZ-ing?! Now I get a front row seat to watching her dream realized ~ how awesome is that? So here's the blurb on Mississippi Nights:

Two brothers, one death--the bond of brotherhood faces its greatest challenge against resentment and guilt.

Can the love between two brothers eventually win against pain and guilt?

When Firefighter David Boyette’s fiancĂ©e perishes in a car fire, he blames his brother, Sgt. Jeremy Boyette, for her death.

Three years later, David returns home with a dark and devastating secret. With the help of family, a woman’s love, and a small child’s devotion, can David overcome insurmountable odds as he and Jeremy face the bitterness that enslaves him?

Together the brothers must decide if the bond of brotherhood is stronger than resentment and hate.

D.M.'s characters are very real in this book, and she deals with the tough subject of alcoholism without shying away from it. Maggie was one of my favorite characters. Her penchant for all things pink, and her sweet nature balanced with a tough backbone was the perfect fit for David. I also loved the healing journey this book took you on, and the story of forgiveness for not only those around you, but yourself and ultimately God.

You can currently pre-order Mississippi Nights through D.M.'s website, just click on the link and it will take you there:) All pre-ordered books will be signed and sent out in the next couple of weeks. Enjoy!


  1. Yay, Daphne. For two reasons. For getting published and for having an awesome, supportive crit partner in you, Susan. Blessings to you both:)

  2. Oh, my goodness. You made me smile and cry with this blog. It seems so surreal to see my name with my book on someone's blog! (talk about alliteration! Glad I wasn't saying that out loud.)
    Thank you so much for everything!
