Welcome back to New York Times bestseller Sandra Hill’s Cajun country, where love heats up the Louisiana bayou . . .
Former Chicago cop Simone LeDeux is back home in the bayou, sharing a double wide in the Pearly Gates trailer park to help her mama recover from surgery. Her one rule: no Cajun men. Loved and left by too many double-crossing Cajuns, Simone puts bad experience to good use by opening Legal Belles: an agency that uncovers cheating spouses.
Suddenly she’s confronting a two-timer about to swindle his wife out of millions and antagonizing New Orleans bigwigs over an illegal sex club. Adam Lanier learns of the dangerous game Simone is playing . . . and the sexy single dad comes to her aid. Known as a rogue in the courtroom and a player in the bedroom, the ragin’ Cajun has Simone triply on guard.
With their crazy chemistry, danger on their trail, and infamous LeDeux relative Tante Lulu working her magical matchmaking, the bayou has never been this steamy.
When I read the synopsis for Cajun Crazy by Sandra Hill I was all on board to dive into its story and be taken on a crazy southern ride, but whether it was the fact that Cajun Crazy is the eleventh installment of Hill’s Cajun series or because of the intricacies of its story was so complex, I just couldn’t connect to the overall story given.
When first meeting the heroine, Simone, I found myself loving the strength she showed that exuded from the pages. The qualities that were made known about her character further endeared me to her and her possible journey within Cajun Crazy. I was following everything she experienced until she went back home, I simply couldn’t keep up with everything that was going on. It was also because of this disconnect I couldn’t give the romance the time of day.
Our hero’s, Adam, storyline was somewhat easier to follow because it somewhat felt like he was comfortable with his place in New Orleans. Plus, the supporting characters that surrounded him really made his character more attractive to me, I’m a sucker for a single father and young minded grandpa. Adam is definitely my kind of hero, but I just didn’t find the romance between Simone and him believable.
The mystery of Cajun Crazy was also lost on me because I found myself disinterested. The positives that I found with Cajun Crazy came from the individual characters of Adam and all the supporting characters, and Simone every now and then appealed to me. There were definitely a few laughs here and there, and moments where I would melt into a pile of adorable goo – mostly because of Adam’s little girl and his dad.
If Cajun Crazy sounds interesting to you give it a try and I hope that it works more in your favor than it did mine.
