About this ebook

Welcome back to New York Times bestseller Sandra Hill’s Cajun country, where love heats up the Louisiana bayou . . .

Former Chicago cop Simone LeDeux is back home in the bayou, sharing a double wide in the Pearly Gates trailer park to help her mama recover from surgery. Her one rule: no Cajun men. Loved and left by too many double-crossing Cajuns, Simone puts bad experience to good use by opening Legal Belles: an agency that uncovers cheating spouses.

Suddenly she’s confronting a two-timer about to swindle his wife out of millions and antagonizing New Orleans bigwigs over an illegal sex club. Adam Lanier learns of the dangerous game Simone is playing . . . and the sexy single dad comes to her aid. Known as a rogue in the courtroom and a player in the bedroom, the ragin’ Cajun has Simone triply on guard.

With their crazy chemistry, danger on their trail, and infamous LeDeux relative Tante Lulu working her magical matchmaking, the bayou has never been this steamy.

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.
