Cajun Crazy is my first dive into the Cajun pool that Sandra Hill creates. Following Simon LeDeuex and Adam Lanier, and their intense heat, this is not a book that I will forget soon. I loved the pace of the story that kept me intrigued while not moving so fast that I got lost in it. And all the secondary characters that were entwined throughout this book have me ready to go back and read all the books I've missed in the series.

I love a good romance, especially the ones Avon puts out, so I couldn't resist picking up Cajun Crazy. While this is book 11 in the series, I decided to pick it up without reading the previous books for a fun, crazy romance.

After three failed marriages, Simone LeDeux is back home living with her mom as she recovers from a knee injury. Even after living in Chicago, Simone realizes her one true vice is Cajun men and is determined to swear them off as she opens up her own investigative business wh

Love this series and love this family. The series is full of Cajun Crazy and the loves of the LeDuex family. Tante Lulu is the matriarch of this family of LeDuex offspring and an absolutely wonderful, colorful character. When she and St. Jude team up there is no stopping the old Thunderbolt of Love from finding its' target. Romance and humor with a touch of mystery/suspense - catnip to me. Nothing better.

Sometimes I'm just in the mood for good old southern romance, and luckily, Sandra Hill's Cajun Crazy, the latest addition to her Cajun series, hit the spot just right. Amply laden with feisty banter, steamy romance, and "awww!" moments, Cajun Crazy shows just how fun the Louisiana Bayou can be!

Cajun Crazy features the alternating POVs of Simone and Adam.

I was introduced to some of these characters in her now completed A Deadly Angels Book (7 Book Series) which was one of my favorite guilty pleasures. This more down to Earth spin-off has not had the same attraction but is not bad. This installment has added a wee bit more mystique to Tante Lulu but the basic thing is it was a 3.5/4 Star reading. Great story and told wonderfully but the places she could have really added to the story by adding some needed drama she failed a bit IMHO. Also some ve ...more

Having just moved away from New Orleans, I thought Cajun Crazy would be a good read to test my homesickness for Louisiana. Nola to Arizona was a big move for me, so I am still adjusting to the differences of living outside the South. I have not read the 10 preceding Cajun books, but I tripped along just fine and didn't feel like I was missing vital information or backstory.

Simone LeDeux is an independent heroine who has been unlucky in love, a fact she attributes to her weakness for Cajun men. A
All of the titles I’ve read from Sandra Hill have been fun and a touch over the top: fast-paced dialogue, silly bordering on ridiculous comments and plenty of intrigue. And I’ve read most of these titles without having familiarity with the earlier titles in the series, since they worked well as stand alones. This title is no different – with a few recurring characters who arrive with some backstory allowing them to fit in neatly. In this story, Simone is back home while her mother recovers from ...more

If you haven't yet read her Cajun series you really should. Talk about great, funny characters with Tante Lulu leading the pack!

Simone is from Lousiana, Cajun country and she has a thing for Cajun me. And it never ends well. After three failed marriages, she doesn't want anything to do with another cajun man ever again. But when she meets Adam Lanier the sparks are instant. She tries to stay away from him and his cajun brown eyes that seem to pull her in.

Is it possible for someone's tastes to change so much that a series which was first started in PP back in the 90's and much beloved -has become distasteful to me now? I loved this series when I was in my 40's but now I just find the series childish and sad...

Is it my age?

I'm so sorry that I couldn't finish this book, but for what I did read the characters seemed vacuous and shallow. They were so silly that they went over the top into being clownish for me.

With this latest installment readers are once again drawn into the Cajun world crafted by Ms. Hill. It’s a brash world, full of colorful characters, laugh-out-loud moments, and teeming with sensuality. There’s also a sense of family as characters we’ve come to love make their presence known throughout the story, characters whose stories we’ve read numerous times over the years with HEAs that get even stronger.

I have read some of Sandra Hill’s Cajun novels, but not all of them and it has been a while. When I was given the opportunity to read and review this one, I was thrilled. It is just as good as I remember. I love the way Ms. Hill blends the traditions and feeling of the bayou with her romances. I definitely need to go back and read the books that I have missed.

So, my thoughts on Cajun Crazy are kind of all over place. There some parts of the book I really enjoyed and others that were kind of meh. So, we have two people who are both cajun and might be a little crazy. So, we have Simone who has bad taste in men, and happen to be cajun. Adam has had a bad marriage and decided that it's for the birds. However, these two are drawn together. They can't seem to fight the attraction, but it doesn't help when most of the family is try

Cajun Crazy by Sandra Hill

I don’t remember when I read my first Cajun Novel by Sandra Hill. I’ve read several books from her other series but my favorites are her Cajun stories.
I met Ms. Hill at a Romantic Times Convention many years ago. This quiet, gentle lady was on a panel with a pair of boisterous comedic authors. I remember feeling sorry for her because she couldn’t compete with their antics. She waited patiently for them to run out of steam and then proceeded to entertain us with her own

I had issues with most everyone in this one.

The heroine for her lack of self control/respect with regards to members of the opposite sex from her home state, for her attitude about her mom

The heroine's mom for acting like a dingbat at times (since she was middle aged, her daughter's judgmental assessments of her clothing style was a source of irritation)

The hero, for his attitude towards the heroine, and collectively with his dad, for setting such a poor example for a 5 year old girl.

I have enjoyed Sandra Hill's books for a very long time - since the first Viking/time travel series. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I've enjoyed others. She has a decidedly quirky style, which takes a little getting used to, but isn't much of a hinderance to reading. In this book, though, that quirkiness bordered on annoying. The use of the 'Cajun dialect' also bordered on the edge of annoying. The story itself was a bit "thin" with often too much emphasis on food (do I really need to know ...more
I loved the supporting characters and all the crazy family antics! Tante Lulu is someone I’d hide from at a family dinner but would love to watch in long as I’m not the guinea pig! And Adam’s daughter Maisie was a charming sprite who brought a smile every time she said something. As to the actual romance however, I never fell for Adam and Simone as a couple. Individually, I can say I liked them well enough, but as a couple? Their physical chemistry felt forced and the emotional connec ...more

Former Chicago cop Simone LeDeux has returned home to the Bayou to help her mother who is recovering from surgery. Simone has had three unsuccessful marriages to Cajun men -- so she plans to try and stay away from them. That is until she meets her brother Luc's law partner Adam Lanier.

Adam is raising his adorable five year old daughter after a disastrous marriage and has no plans to enter into matrimony again.

Then comes Tante Lulu with her St. Jude statues and her hope chest.

This is a hilarious
The romance was really more of a 2.5 stars, but the secondary characters saved this one, so I rounded up.

I have never read a romance with such a horribly matched couple. Adam seems to have a split personality and a caveman complex, and Simone is flattered by things I would consider sexual harassment. The idea that they would ever make a go of it is preposterous and totally unbelievable. I won't be reading any more of the series.

This is a delightful story about another one of the LeDeux family who has had trouble every time she meets a good looking Cajun. Simone is a former Chicago cop who has come home to help her mom rehab from knee surgery and who decided to go into business with her best friend who is a lawyer. When she met Adam Lanier she heard thunder and she knew she was in trouble. A cute and humorous story of true love the Cajun way.
