So Into You
Grace O'Brien has an unusual past. She's been a nun, a champion poker player and gambler, a treasure hunter, and now is learning to be traiteur or folk healer. She stays in Louisiana after the Jinx treasure hunting team leaves. They had found LaFitte's treasure and are on to the next find. Her long time friend, hunky Angel Sabato, proposes before they leave but she turns him down. There is more in her past that she is hiding. He leaves and she stays with Tante Lulu to learn a new skill.
A year later Angel returns to Louisiana at Tante Lulu's request. There are some orphaned kids who have barely made it since Kristina who need help. Tante Lulu want to build them a house on their property. Angel agrees to be the head contractor and stays for two reasons - to build the house and to try to win Grace again. He's still in love with her and still wants to marry her. Now let the good times roll and the fun begin.
Sandra Hill writes a cute romance with a lot of laughter and fun. In So Into You Grace's secrets keep her from trusting anyone because she can't forgive herself. Angel's past isn't spotless either, but it's public. It's hard to hide that you once posed nude for a women's magazine...
So Into You is fun, sexy fluff. Tante Lulu is quite a character. She's appeared in many of Sandra Hill's books and is bound to appear in more. She and St. Jude are matchmakers for almost anyone in her circle. She's outrageous and loveable all wrapped into one tiny eighty-plus year old package.
Besides the fluff there is a serious story line in So Into You. Sandra Hill brings the plight of the Katrina survivors into focus. There are still thousands of people and families who haven't recovered from the devastation the hurricane left behind. Many people moved away and gave up on their homes. Others are still trying to keep their lives together. Yes, rebuilding has been going on. But much, much more is needed.
