5.0 out of 5 stars Bullseye! Right on Target!!, 6 Jan 2004
This review is from: Tall, Dark and Cajun (Mass Market Paperback)
Sandra Hill continually trods where no tepid writer dares and gives some wonderfully original books. I loved many of her Time-Travelling Vikings who refused to stay put in their own time, and her last - Very Virile Viking was one gem! It's hard to do humour and get consistent good reviews, because what strikes our funnybones is free-ranging and vastly different from person to person. Having been raised on both sides of the Pond, I see Yanks not get Brit humour and Brits sniff at what passes for American jokes.

I was raised in Scotland and Britain and I delight in the humour and their quirkiness. Same for the places I have lived in the US, mostly Kentucky - truly full of characters. But I have a great aunt down near the Big Easy, so New Orleans and the area holds a soft spot in my heart as well. Another place that truly appreciate humour and the offbeat. Believe me, I have a younger brother who thinks he is a Party-on-down-Cher, Cajun!

So, I was really looking forward to Hill's Tall, Dark and Cajun. And I must say, I hurt from laughing after reading this wonderful, charming and witty book!

Thoroughly Yankee Rachel Fortier wants romance in her life - and her jerks fiancé thinks keeping her buns and abs in perfect tone is romantic. The snooty decorator decides a change of pace is needed - and a change in men, and envisions dropping in on her gran's cabin in the bayou is a picturesque destination. Only her bottled water ways is about to come a cropper as she lands on grannie's bit of swampland. The log-cabin on stilts - al la Clampete decor - and is hardly what she had in mind. Neither were some of the other complications. There is a whole mess of cajun characters angling for the old ladies land, including the sexy, bedroom eyed, Remy LeDeux. Rachel's rapidly comes to the conclusion her stay is going to be a passel of trouble and rightly so, as Remy is about as spicy and hot as Cajun hot-sauce! what woman could resist that them Alpha-Male pheromones?

However, his mini-skirted great-aunt, is ready to marry him off, and beadily eyes Rachel as the perfect candidate, only in the love-never-runs-smooth catch, Rachel's shotgun totting Gran is ready to shoot Remy the instant he put foot on her front porch. Toss in an Alligator named Useless (must be a cousin to Crockett's Elvis!!) and you have all the fun mix to rival cajun gumbo!

Party on down, Cheri! It's one steamy hot time!! Way to go Ms. Hill. Don't wait too long to you take us back to bayou land!!
