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 surgery. A Chicago police officer, one would expect her to be a bit skeptical and perhaps more bemused by her relations than she is – but she’s not going to sit around and wait for amusement – opening an agency, Legal Belles, that provides services to those who feel their spouse is cheating on them. She’s drawing from her own personal experience and prejudices against Cajun men, and her police experience make this a solid career choice. Enter Adam Lanier, a single father and lawyer known for his courtroom flair and bedroom acumen, aware of Simone’s latest case: a man on the brink of swindling his wife out of millions. Lanier is stepping up to protect and help Simone, knowing just how deep the corruption goes, even if Simone isn’t interested in the help or the proximity. But the chemistry is strong here, and with Tante Lulu working her own brand of matchmaking magic for her dear Simone, all good intentions and determination to not be interested in yet another Cajun man are tossed to the wind. Through some seriously dangerous (and often funny) adventures, Simone’s desire to keep Adam at arm’s length, and the endless people that are offended, threatened and then angered by Simone’s investigating, the story moves quickly from point to point. At first (and many other) glance, Adam and Simone are not a natural couple: they aren’t well suited, Simone’s sense often takes a powder when she responds positively to some rather questionable ‘compliments’ and situations, and the overall feel of we’re all in this together sort of sense that I get from most of Hill’s books seemed to lapse frequently as the Cajun sense of the story went into stereotypical, leaving an us versus them sort of sensibility that didn’t add to the fun or the humor. Easy to understand the plot and the who in this story, as well as the introduction of Tante Lulu and her offbeat style, I’m sure this will please fans of the series. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Cajun Crazy is book 11 in the Cajun series. This was my first Sandra Hill book and I really enjoyed her writing style. I loved seeing Simone trying to fight off her "Cajun Crazy" feelings but knowing there was no real hope. This entire book had a small town feel where everyone knows one another and since I had so much fun with this one it makes me want to read the other books in this series. Simone LeDeux is a police officer that quits her job and moves back to Louisiana to take care of her mom who is having some health issues. Instead of finding another job on the force, she opens up Legal Belles, a private investigator office with a friend. Most of the cases are catching cheating spouses but there are a few others that are potentially dangerous. Adam Lanier is a single dad and lawyer that helps out Simone in one of these other instances and the sparks are instantly flying. This is a super tight-knit town and the gossip mill is at full speed when Adam and Simone's attraction is easily on display. Adam winds up a bit worried about Simone with a case that hits close to home and I was intrigued to see how it all would play out. Cajun Crazy is a fun, sexy read you won't want to put down. I really enjoyed the small town aspect with all of the family elements. I'm not too familiar with Cajun lingo but luckily it was explained pretty well throughout the novel. It was a bit heavy on the lingo but I could overlook that considering I couldn't wait to see what would happen with Simone and Adam. All in all, this was a lovely read that I think you'll enjoy if you like Contemporary Romances.

Review: CAJUN CRAZY: A Cajun Novel by Sandra Hill Publication Date: November 28, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance Reviewed by Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated 4.5 Stars I just love Sandra Hill’s Cajun series, and this one lived up to the rest. It was fun, zany and sexy. I admit that Adam came across as a bit crass in the very beginning, but I soon got to know him, and really liked him. It was fun watching Simone go through her Cajun crazy, surrounded by interesting characters and all of them being chased by Tante Lulu. It’s a fast-paced story that left me smiling. *Review copy provided by Avon Books in exchange for an honest review.

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. Simone has always been a wild card when it comes to love. She's been married and divorced three times but what can she say? She just can't resist cajun men - she's cajun crazy! While relationships may not be her forte, she's sharp, fearless, and savvy when it comes to her business. I liked Simone from the get-go. She was hilarious and charming. Her relationship with her mother always had me laughing out loud, especially when her mother was constantly trying to butt into her love life. Gosh, nothing would stop that woman from setting Simone up. Additionally, I loved seeing Simone in the zone for work. Adam has been burned by love too. Recently widowed, Adam has sworn off serious relationships and chosen instead to focuses on his adorable daughter. However, everything changes the moment Simone lands in his path. Suddenly, he's willing to take that chance again. Adam was incredibly likable as well. His relationship with his daughter and father was heartwarming, and I especially loved when his daughter doled out the sass - she always had me laughing out loud. I could also understand why he was so willing to give up on love. His past relationship with his wife was incredibly twisted to put it lightly. However, as soon as he meet Simone, I could see something positive happening there, and throughout the novel, I wished Adam and Simone would see it as well - they were just so funny and adorable together! The plot in this included romance, sleuthing, and normal small town hijinks. The romance was steamy and well developed. I especially liked how Sandra took a slow-burn approach to it. It kept me on my toes! The sleuthing brought some mystery and suspense to the table. I really enjoyed Adam and Simone's cases, especially when it put them on opposite sides. Last but not least, the small town! What a crazy yet fun place! It was eccentric to say the least. The only aspect that brought this book down a notch or two in my yes was all the southern slang used. It took a while to get used to; however, by the end, I grew accustom to it and saw that it did add some charm to the book. In all, Cajun Crazy is a fun and slightly twisty romance read, and given the warm setting, it's the perfect read for the chilly days of winter! Grade: B
