About the Book:
Sometimes the deepest wounds come from the ones who love us most.
In her lab, Kate McDonnell’s world is stable and predictable, just the way she likes it—but in one weekend, Kate’s carefully controlled world explodes into chaos.
When irresistible Andre Dufresne shows up to whisk her away for a romantic weekend, she’s thrilled to have a second chance with him. But a family crisis forces her back to the town she avoided for years—and the horrible secrets she buried there. At eighteen, Kate made a tragic mistake that she’s never forgiven herself for—one that shattered her completely. She can’t let Andre see this part of her past, but if she pushes him away again she’ll lose him for good.
Desperate to redeem herself, Kate returns to her hometown, but finds her family in pieces. Her mother is ill, her father is in denial, and her brothers are clueless. Kate takes charge, but not everyone is happy to have her home. When one bitter family member reveals her darkest secret to everyone, she’s plunged into a nightmare that might well destroy her—unless she can learn to forgive.
A dazzling story about the way family can shape us—or tear us apart—and how revealing our vulnerability can set us free.

Engaging characters, a suspenseful plot and a gorgeous guy with a southern drawl—can you really ask for more?” –Amy Willoughby-Burle, author of The Lemonade Year
“As touching as it is tempting, TROUBLE WILL FOLLOW will sweep you away with page-turning romance. No one else combines Southern sass and soul-deep emotion like Lauren Faulkenberry.” –Kelly Harms, WSJ and Amazon bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler
