If you’re in the mood for laugh-out-loud humor, steamy romance, quirky characters and   sigh-worthy happy endings then this is the book for you.  So Into You goes back to the Louisiana Bayou for the story of Grace O’Brien and Angel Sabato, two secondary characters from Hill’s Jinx series.

“The angel was wild tonight…”

Grace O’Brien is stunned to learn that Angel Sabato, her long-time best friend, thinks he’s in love with her.  After running from a troubled childhood, the former nun, professional poker player and treasure hunter has finally found peace in the bayou as Tante Lulu’s folk healing apprentice.  She doesn’t want to hurt Angel and possibly lose her best friend but secrets from her past make it impossible for Grace to ever marry.  Besides, that gorgeous hunk of man couldn’t possibly love her.  Could he?

“The best-laid plans of mice and clueless men…”

Angel is tired of playing the field and hiding his true feelings for Grace.  He wants to settle down, get married and have a family.  The time has come to convince Grace to give love, with him, a chance.  He’s a big, bad, motorcycle-riding professional poker player, treasure hunter and contractor.  He even posed naked for Playgirl magazine! (though he doesn’t like to talk about that)  Surely, he can convince one little redheaded ex-nun to give him a chance.

“Even angels need a little help from above…”

When Angel strikes out, his only hope of finally breaking through the wall around Grace’s heart is to put himself into the hands of that crazy old Cajun, Tante Lulu.  With her male hope chests, “thunderbolts of love” and hundreds of St. Jude statues, not to mention her equally wacky, but highly successful, matchmaking family, Grace is sure to see the light.  He hopes.

Hill writes snappy, rapid-fire dialogue that keeps the story flowing and her characters’ internal monologues are hilarious but her books are not all humor and no substance.  Serious topics are tackled in this book, such as the devastation of Katrina, from which the residents of southern Louisiana are still trying to recover, and the secret from her past that Grace is hiding.  Both are integral to the story and written in such a way as to complement the love story, not detract from it, and while both carry an important message, they are presented with Hill’s trademark warmth and humor.

Pick up a copy of So Into You and, as they say in the bayou, Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez. Let the good times roll!

    I love a book where the internal monologues rival the dialogue. Thanks for the great review and a heads up on a new contemporary. I’m definitely in need of one.

    Huge fan of friends falling in love, especially if it’s the guy who falls first. I might just have to check this one out.

    Great review Buffie 🙂

    Sounds beautiful. How ironic though – Angel chasing an (ex) nun! I will sure be looking out for this book =D
