    Missed the Mark

    Usually I adore Sandra Hill's Cajun series. Tante Lulu and her clan provide plenty of laughs. With SO INTO YOU, I think the book missed the mark. It definitely had moments, but there were other aspects I felt detracted from what should have been the key plot.

    Grace O'Brien's apprenticing with Tante Lulu learning all about alternative medicine. Some readers will remember Grace from other Jinx, Inc. stories. Grace's long-time friend Angel Sabato admits he's in love with her, but Grace sends him packing. She has secrets to hide and she's definitely not ready to reveal any of them to Angel.

    A year passes. Grace learns that Angel rebounded by marrying another. Which hurts, but Grace is busy with Tante Lulu. During one of their outings, they come across a sick teenager who hides her own secret. She's raising her younger siblings following the death of their parents and if social services discovers the truth, they'll be separated. Grace and Lulu do what it takes to ensure this family remains together, even if it means talking Angel into returning to Cajun country.

    With that, Lulu sets out on a new mission in life. She's starting a charitable foundation that will help families affected by Hurricane Katrina. She also has plans to ensure Angel gets the next Hope Chest and that he and Grace realize they are destined to be together.

    Angel and Grace's romance shares the same blistering heat as other Sandra Hill novels. I loved the addition of a new charity to keep Tante Lulu active and see how that can lead to a new line of novels should Ms. Hill opt to go in that direction.

    My issues with this book are mainly with Grace. When her "big secret" is revealed, all I could think was "that's it?!" It seems rather disappointing that so bold a woman was stewing over a trivial matter.

    The orphans that Grace and Lulu help seem pushed to the background after the truth about Grace's past is revealed. From that point on, I found they were treated more like afterthoughts that key players in the book. While the story revolves around the new charity building a lasting home for these kids, they really did seem to play second fiddle and most of the story involved Grace, Angel and then Grace's secret.

    Die-hard Hill fans will still want to read it, but it definitely didn't make my list of favorites.
