Enjoyed another laugh out-loud Cajun book by Sandra Hill. This one kept me thoroughly entertained, laughing, smiling, loved the lawyer jokes and the romance was very nice. The internal dialogue that runs along with the characters kept me smiling. :-) Rene (the hero, The King of Smooth) was such a romantic guy. Val (Valerie) started out snobbish, but as her character developed I learned more about her and the horrors she endured as a child with a Joan Crawford-type mother.

There was a lot of

at first i was like mmm about the book, but the characters grew on me and the book turned out to be a fun laid-back romance,Rene and Valerie had an instresting past to start off, i was beginning to think they wern't going to work out, especially the way Valerie felt about Rene. the only thing i would have to say that bothered me was the italic text of when they talked to themselves, but for the most part the book was wonderful, and it grew on me, almost cried in one part which suprised me, consi ...more
I really enjoy Sandra Hill's sense of humor and fun writing style. Although RED-HOT CAJUN was not my favorite book in this series, it was a fun, light read for the weekend.

Rene' was as sexy and hot as the rest of the cajun cowboys in this series. I love LOVE love the fact that he was an environmental lobbyist, fighting to save the bayou. The descriptions of the Black Bayou are intriguing and really brought my attention to the problems with wetland conservation. This book is worth reading just f

Super quickie review!

The Red Hot Cajun by Sandra Hill

Genre: Contemporary Romance

The bad: The ending was a bit too fast, story slightly overstuffed.

The good: Sexy, delicious hero, hilarious Cajun family, loved the awesome romantic ending and epilogue. Made me feel like I was in the steamy bayou!

Grade: A-

This was such a fun book to read. It helps if you have read the first three books in the series to appreciate the family. Rene' LeDeux knew Valerie Breaux from growing up in the same small down and for the past tens years they have hated each other. At least that is what they thought until they were forced to spend time together in the Bayou.

They were from two different worlds and thought they wanted different things but in the end it was only the location that they had problems with.

Another witty Sandra Hill novel. We all need a Tante Lulu.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It started off crazy weird and I almost quit reading, but the story got better as it went on. The romantic relationship was more realistic than many typical romances with discussion of compromise and long term life goals. I loved Rene and Val together. The environment of the Louisiana bayou was described beautifully. The end seem to get a little preachy about what should be important in life, but all in all it was a good read.

I gave this book five stars because it is fun, spirited, and a good read. Hill's Cajun books are as much fun as her Viking ones, and I recommend them to you.

A ton of past story of why they don't get along in this book, at the same time as lusting after eachother. Rene's friends kidnap Valerie & bring her to Rene's log cabin in the bayou... Tante Lulu stays with them during this venture to keep them apart, but push them together at the same time. Snarky Valerie has her retorts, but it's relatively short lived. Both are jobless now & they are eventually going to do a documentary about saving these wetlands.

Same as the past 2 other books I rea
Good book. Laugh out loud funny in spots. Looking forward to more books by this author. Book is about Rene & Val.

Suspense, action-packed, romance, comedy. All around good book. Giving the book 5 stars. . . it keeps you interested in the book. Even after I put the book down I could remember what had happened. Hoping to read the complete Cajun series.

I consider this book the last of the Cajun series("Red Hot Cajun". . I started to read the next book in this series called "Pink Jinx" It is not

I really enjoyed this one. It was a light read, though there was some cleverly disguised depth involved, too. It was humorous and sexy, and also sweet in many ways. The characters might have been 2D were it not for the circumstances they kept landing in. Which is well done, in my opinion. I also appreciated that there were very normal complications in the relationship. It wasn't too black and white. I think I might be picking up more from the author.
I've been anticipating reading Rene's story for a while now and it didn't disappoint.

This story was sweet and funny and romantic and hot. It was really fun and entertaining to read.

Tante Lulu and the rest of the Lebeau clan were as amusing as always.

This is probably my favourite book of the series.

This was my first book by Sandra Hill and I thoroughly enjoyed it despite some of the cheesy lines and dialect ‘talk’. The instant simmering attraction was portrayed deliciously. Love sexy hero Rene and his quirky Cajun family. Loved the romantic ending and the epilogue.

Cajuns, bayou shenanigans, wacky elderly characters, a kidnapping gone awry, an instant physical attraction too hot to ignore. While there are some great, breathtaking romance novels out there, this is one you take exactly as is. And you enjoy the hell out of it.

I started reading this one when I was on vacation. I bought it at a used bookstore when I was out of town. There wasn't much to pick from but it was a light, funny read. Good for people who like romance novels.
