Louise Rivard, long before she became known as the beloved Tante Lulu, is a young Cajun woman still suffering from her Big Grief, the death of her fiancé Phillipe Prudhomme during World War II. She has a career as a traiteur or folk healer, a young child to care for, and a wacky devotion to her favorite saint, Jude, patron of hopeless cases, but she is lonely. What she needs to jumpstart her life is a good dose of Cajun Sass.
Justin Boudreaux is a young doctor about to embark on what will end up being a world-famous career as a heart surgeon, but he is home on the bayou for the summer. What he doesn’t need to complicate his life is a sassy Cajun girl with an attitude and some crazy ass medical recipes including such things as gator snot. But then, despite his Yankee education, Justin discovers that he still has that god-given talent all bayou-born men have…Cajun Brass.
When Cajun Sass meets Cajun Brass, the good times can’t help but roll. Laissez le bon temps rouler, guar-an-teed!
Humor has become a hallmark of Sandra Hill's books. She started out with Vikings, tried a medieval knight, moved into the Old South, then the California gold fields, on to modern-day Manhattan, Memphis, Maine and Galveston. But the one element that has remained consistent in all her books is the laugh-out-loud humor.
Sandra's first book came out in October 1994, and since then she has published fifteen novels and had novellas in four anthologies, all through Dorchester Publishing.
Married for almost thirty years (to the same man!!!), Sandra is the mother of four sons. Living with five males (not to mention a male German Shepherd the size of a small horse) is enough to make any woman develop a sense of humor, Sandra often says. Either that, or go mad.
The most gratifying thing to Sandra has been the amazing reader response to her books. Almost 5,000 readers have taken the time to write to her over the past five years (some of them repeatedly) to tell her how much her books have touched their lives. This is the one thing Sandra never expected when she first started writing...the need for laughter in a world that is becoming increasingly stressful and sometimes downright dreary. She is only too happy to help and promises her fans that her well of humor is not about to run dry for a long, long time.
