Kimberley's Review....
Wonderful, Clever, sassy, sharp, brilliant and resourceful. Those are just some of the words that come to mind when I was reading Acadian Waltz. Set in today’s New Orleans we start off with Nora T ( as most of her friends call her) and her Sunday brunch with her over bearing mother Claire and her sweet , keep your mouth shut stepfather Lou.  After hearing what her mother expects from her and telling her she isn't holding her side up of the deal. You know the deal most mothers’ want …. Their daughter married, rich, and given her grandbabies  Nora is thrown into the world of speed dating southern style. But a freak allergic reaction, from shellfish sends Nora’s date to the hospital, and Nora into the arms of Dr. John Blessing. Suddenly she is now on the fast track to the altar via her mother.
But in comes the childhood crush , Jean Marc (sighs) and he is there to show Nora T what she is really looking for isn’t in the big city of New Orleans but in the back woods , swamps of Louisiana.
I found this book funny, sweet, and gripping. I enjoy Ms. Weis strength she gave Nora, and giving it to Nora when the time she needed it the most. The mix of who, what, when and how and OH no he didn’t had me staying up all night to finish reading it. I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Weis and I am hoping to make it back to the swamps of Louisiana in her future books.
