This book is rip roarin’ hilarious from the get-go! You will laugh so hard that your chest will be in agony, you won’t be able catch your breath for how much you’re laughing and your eyes will be red and puffy from crying so much because it’s so unbelievable funny! From mullet-head hairstyles to witchy ol’ grannies this story can only put you in the very best of moods. But this is no light and whimsical romance! The characters are exceptionally written and the romance just makes your heart skip ...more

Hilarious! I was sad to put this book down. Wonderful characters, story and writing. Something sexy about tall, dark, and canjun! Tante Lulu (aunt) was a hoot! Many of the secondary characters were just as colorful and really added to the story.

This book put a smile on my face. Another in the favorite category.

Tall, Dark, and Cajun: An tantalizing and humorous contemporary romance book that will transport you into the wonderful magic of the Louisiana Bayous. This book is pure comfort and satisfaction, Creole Style. 5 stars! Donc très magnifique..WARNING: this book may give you the urge to smile like an idiot, eat lots of great warm comfort food, and hoot with laughter.

I honestly don't understand how this book could have a 4 star rating. I'm a big fan of Sandra Hill and loved Frankly, My Dear because it was cute and FUNNY. This book that was supposedly "hilarious", didn't even make me chuckle or smile once.
The setting and second characters were great ( the eccentric grandmas are usually a must in light chick lit), but the Cajun slang was laid on too thick for me and the characters fall in lust by page 1, and in love by chapter 3.
There was no witty banter

This was cute and sexy but didn't knock me over with hilarity as I was expecting having heard this book was supposed to be laugh out loud funny. But humor is a subjective thing. The arguments and the conflicts were a little forced but overall it was an entertaining book and Remy was certainly a yummy cajun.

This book was funny, entertaining and had a nice love story. I really liked the h/H but Rachel irritated me at times. She got extremely angry over Remy not telling her something when they had only known each other for 2 weeks. I love that Remy was not perfect; he was scarred emotionally and physically and this made him even sexier. I really liked the secondary characters as well. Tante Lulu reminded me a bit of Grandma Mazur in the Stephanie Plum Series (Janet Evanovich) but I liked that there w ...more

Decorator Rachel Fortier ends her engagement in a very spectacular fashion and heads off to the Louisiana bayou to meet her grandmother for the first time. She expected Tara, but the reality is very far from that! Rachel finds eccentric old ladies, a machete-brandishing cousin, lots of big hair and of course, hot Cajun hunks!
Remy LeDeux is one of the first people she meets when she gets to her grandma's and the attraction between them is instant. Despite her initial reluctance, Rachel begins to

The first half of this book was so delightful and funny, I couldn't stop reading. I thought the heroine's argument against the hero in the second half was a bit overblown. She blames him for exercising discretion in the personal parts of his life, but she does the same. The second half was a bit rough-going for me but it all led to a touching HEA. I will read more from this series and author. I LOVE the Cajun setting.

Honestly, this book was so contrived and sexually-based that I didn't finish it. There was no real explanation of why the characters liked each other, aside from pure sexual attraction. That's fine if that's the "romance" you're looking for, but it's not the kind that I prefer to read.

After living in Louisana for 4 years and loving every minute of it. I had to buy this book. I was not disappointed.
This book is really funny. Just the main characters are good enough but with the supporting cast of characters, it is a blast.

This was a really great book and I really liked it (mostly because Remy and Rachel were funny). The secondary characters were also pretty great and I appreciated their involvement throughout the entire book. What I didn't like was how quick the relationship between Remy and Rachel developed mainly because it seemed like the jumped straight to liking each other and then suddenly they were in the stage where all they do is fight. A good part of the book is spent with them feeling like they were be ...more

This was the first book by Sandra Hill that I have read and I really enjoyed the humor and the details that she writes about. Rachel Fortier makes a journey to Louisiana to meet her long lost Grandmother after a disastrous five year romance. She meets Remy LeDeux and the sparks start to fly. Rachel, being from Washington D.C. had never seen anything like lower Louisiana and the Cajun living. She was in for a real shock but decided that this was real living not the fake characters like she knew b ...more

I liked this story - good humor, great chemistry between the H/h and although it was part of a series, I didn't feel confused or lost at all.

The chemistry was the greatest selling point - the weakest was the conflict between Remy and Rachel. Rachel has some issues with her weight because of her idiot fiance (and fyi 5'10" and 140 lbs isn't overweight) and that irritated me. Remy's burns from an accident he suffered while in the Air Force was more believable but I loved that Rachel saw past it.

Rachel Fortier is fed up with her plastic surgeon fiancee always trying to make her body a sculpted plastic surgeon perfection.

Tall and Dark

Oh yeah! I've also love the Cajun storyline coming out of Louisiana. Sandra has a way with words and storytelling that make her novels funny, believable and warm all over. I find myself reading one novel of the series and following up with another. Very worthy read. . . with romantic drama, hot make up love and with a happy ending. All that the romance reader's can ask for. I will state this novel did not make me cry.

If you cannot handle Song of Solomen, then this book is not for you. If you can, you are in for an adventure.

A book so hard to lay down. First Rachel burns her 5 year live-in doctor's exercise stuff, etc. Anyone who cannot accept you for who you are, doesn't really love you.

So Rachel heads to Louisiana to meet her Grandmother she never knew existed. From the big city to Cajun Country is definitely shell shock. Yet Rachel learns so many lessons you are gripped by the setting and descriptions.

This really has no suspense, but there is a drug smuggling operation going on in the bayou while this contemporary romance unfolds.

I'm finding that this cajun series is nothing more than the same old plot. Romance/Love happens. Struck by the "Thunderbold" whatever they call it, with a bunch of cajun humor & misunderstandings with the language cross over.

Unique to this book was the humor of a guy with a mullet, trapping for a living & a granny witch that spit tobacco & cooked what wa

From the reviews I read I got the impression this was supposed to hilarious and a fun sexy romp with Cajun charm. This felt like something my Nana (whom I love dearly) would enjoy. The humor felt dated and cliche. Dare I say slapstick? Ugh, just wasn't for me. I've read several other books with the Lousianna setting and "crazy" characters that were much better executed.

I'm loving this series!

I recently found this author thru her paranormal / Angel series. Hill's characters have me alternately laughing out loud and shedding a tear regardless of the setting in which I find myself. as retired military I especially liked how she incorporated Remy's war time injuries into the story. I recommend this book wholeheartedly!

I gave this book five stars because it is fun, fast paced, and suspenseful. Hill's writing style is humorous and engaging. I recommend this book for you.

I picked this up at the library in my quest to read all of Sandra Hill's books, starting with her contemporary titles. Tall, Dark and Cajun was hysterical, but it was also touching. I loved that when Rachel first meets Remy she's overwhelmed with his sexiness, and as he turns the side of his face towards her with burn scars, her only feelings are sadness for the pain he must have suffered. Throughout the story, she's horrified at the looks he receives from people, not understanding why they can' ...more

Well, I ended up liking the book. The second half moved along and drew me into the story more. I still didn't find the book that humorous, but I enjoyed the writing for the most part. I loved Remy, the hero. Rachel was okay, but I thought she was prickly and vindictive sometimes. I also felt like the book was a sounding board for the writer to air her views of female equality. I agreed or at least sympathized with most of the ideas, but I got a little tired of the soapbox. But, as I said, I got ...more

“Times like this were special. Memory builders. When something extraordinary happened to a person the
kind of things remembered forever after it didn't have to be a life-changing event like a graduation or
marriage or birth of a child. It more often was the small things. The sheer joy of summer sunlight on a
fragrant flower. The giggle of a toddler. The brush of a lover's fingertips. And the person marks the
moment with the flashing insight thinking... This is special. I should remember this”
