Publisher's Summary

What secrets can be found by the light of the Cajun moon? New Orleans may be the "Big Easy", but nothing about it was ever easy for international business etiquette expert Chloe Ledet. She moved away years ago, leaving her parents and their famous French Quarter restaurant behind. But when she hears that her father has been shot, she races home to be by his side and to handle his affairs, only to learn a long-hidden secret that changes everything she knew to be true about herself and her family.

Framed for murder, Chloe and a handsome Cajun stranger must search for a priceless treasure, one whose roots weave through the very history of Louisiana itself. But can Chloe depend on the mysterious man leading her on this cat-and-mouse chase into the heart of Cajun country? Or by trusting him, has she gone from the frying pan into the fire? This exciting standalone from best-selling inspirational author Mindy Starns Clark is full of Cajun mystery, hidden dangers, and the glow of God's unending grace.

    "Good clean mystery"

    This book was a little hard to get into at the beginning but developed into a good read. The best part is there is no profanity or bad language of any kind. Isn't is amazing that there are still authors that can tell a great story without filling it with offensive situations and bad language. Thank you Mindy Starns Clark.

    "annoying heroine, overt religious agenda"

    Nowhere in the reviews that I read was it mentioned that this is a Christian novel. I don't mind having some religion in a book, but I really don't like being preached at. The heroine was silly and credulous, the hero over the top, and I'm regretting the money I spent on this one.

    "Good Book"

    I have enjoyed all of Mindy Starns Clark's books. This one was no exception. History, romance, treasure, and a good mystery topped off with a terriffic setting, what's not to like. Ms. Clark writes in a way that generally keeps me second guessing all the characters motives until the end. Although I had an idea of "who dunnit" fairly early in the book, I kept second guessing myself until the culprit was revealed.

    "Unexpectedly good"

    I enjoyed the storyline - even though I often got annoyed with the main character's "quick to judge/dismiss" personality. Yes, there is a religious element to the story, but I didn't feel like it was extremely overt or off-putting.

    What I couldn't stand was the narrator at first. Towards the end, the accents began to come through, but for a story of New Orleans, Creole and Cajuns, I want some GREAT accents.

    "Worst book ever"

    This person has no talent for writing and the reader has no talent for reading. This book wouldn't have been worth a nickel at a yard sale let alone a paperback sale. I am extremely sorry that I wasted $5.95 on it. I only gave it one star so that I could make this statement.

    "Pathetic"

    The author has single-handedly created the stupidest, most credulous heroine ever, while insulting the reader/listener's intelligence throughout. Chloe is unbelievably dim, freely telling just about everyone she meets (including, of course, the killer) what all the clues to the treasure are, and exactly what they mean. This is despite the fact that her father's last message was that the treasure issue is what got him shot, and that they shouldn't trust anyone.

    She's also extremely whiny, with serious mommy and daddy issues - "poor me, poor me my parents didn't pay enough attention to me" is a recurring theme we re-visit about every 10 minutes or so. Don't waste your time or money.

    "No religion mentioned in description"

    The back and forth of 18th century France and present day New Orleans was off putting at first, but I got used to it. I didn't appreciate the religious instruction and God answering prayer as part of the story.

    "Pink and Gold Religion"

    This is a love story that revolves around pink salt, gold, and religion. I really enjoyed the mystery of the story, the setting, and the characters. The only thing I could have done with out was the religious leading man. In fact, I think if you removed all of his Sunday Preacher moments, this book would be even better. Don't think that there is a ton, but its enough to turn a non-religious off while listening. Still, I enjoyed it enough to listen to it twice and intend on using it for my next 6 hour car trip to visit family. And not because its long, but because its a good listen overall.

    This book was good. I enjoy this author, but this was not my favorite of her books.

    "I should have read the member reviews!"
    What disappointed you about Under the Cajun Moon?

    This is a lesson in what I should have done: Read the member reviews! This book is not horrible, though it's pretty predictable, but the religious stuff is unbearable! No where did it say that this book had a Christian message...except for the member reviews. The mystery is OK, and i listened to more than half of it before the preaching started. Then it was laid on thick and heavy and I stopped. I felt tricked by the author, and I did not appreciate that. If you have the conviction of your beliefs, then you should also be willing to stand up and say what your book is really about.
