    A Cajun Romance...

    Luc accidentally eats jelly beans filled with love potion and falls head over heals for Sylvie, who just so happens to be pretty crazy about him. But how can Sylvie be with a man who only loves her because of a potion, and once the love potion wears off, will Luc's love for her die? Sandra Hill is a talented author, but this story would have been more entertaining for me if it was around 200 pages. It seemed to be puffed up with miscellaneous details about cajun tradition that had no place in this book. Luc sounded like a good looking guy, but for the first half of the book I really disliked him. He seemed like a loser and it's hard for me to like a guy like that, but it becomes apparent that he isn't what he seems. By the end of the novel, the character of Luc was very three-dimensional and he seemed to come alive for me, but even the 'Cajun Knight' couldn't save this book. I usually read novels this length in a few days. This novel took me three weeks. I just couldn't get into it. The love potion idea was so intriguing but it fell flat. I was very dissapointed because I really wanted to like this novel.
