“Les Becquets is a wonderful writer. . . . Her characters are sweet, her dialogue rings true and her story is classic, rooted in any moment in time.”
Romantic Times


“Like a spicy Cajun stew, this mixes together lots of ingredients, and the result is delicious. . . Les Becquets creates a wonderful world that not only captures the emotions and dreams of youth but also the longings and regrets of adults. Populating the small town are richly drawn characters who waltz in and out of scenes with grace and humor. Religion and talk of God and morality also slide easily through the narrative. This is romantic, real, and lots of fun.”
Booklist, (starred)

“Filled with playful vignettes of a fun-loving Cajun lifestyle, here’s a novel dealing with sexuality that can appeal to both conservative and liberal readers. . . . Realistic, affecting and enjoyable throughout.”
Kirkus Reviews


“Absolutely delightful, the sleepy town of Sweetbay is full of sassy and whimsical characters reminiscent of Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Café. Diane Les Becquets has written a gripping story fraught with the usual trials of adolescence (body image, lust/love, friendship) that is filled with humor and tenderness.”

“This story is a sweet, homey novel.”

“Perhaps the best thing to know about it is that it will make you smile, and more than once maybe even laugh out loud. I had a good time reading Love, Cajun Style and the first thing I did when I was done was pass it on to my niece. That’s probably the best compliment I can give it; I knew it was a pass-along book from the beginning.”

“Les Becquets cooks up a pot of small-town Southern life that comes together like a jambalaya—spiced with humor and goodwill, with tasty chunks of occasional conflict and misunderstanding that melt away into a harmonious happy ending. The text is permeated by a general sense of warmth and well-being as it explores relationships that haven’t always gone smoothly, but endure and grow nonetheless.”
