New Release: The GIrl from Summer Hill by Jude Deveraux: Review Post



The Girl from Summer Hill (Summer Hil#1)by 

The first book of a new contemporary romance series set in the mountains of Virginia in a town with full of family legends, romance, and secrets from New York Times bestselling author of the Nantucket Brides trilogy.
Sparks fly as fiery Casey Reddick and brooding Hollywood actor Tate Landers clash in the Virginia summer heat. A chef who puts her career first and her love life second, Casey doesn’t see what every girl in town is swooning over. She made up her mind the moment she met Tate—he’s gorgeous, but stuck-up, nothing like his ex-brother-in-law, Devlin who’s playing the Wickham to Tate’s Darcy in local production of Pride & Prejudice. Casey makes the perfect Elizabeth Bennett—how could she be star-struck when she’s heard Devlin’s damning stories about Tate? As they rehearse together, however, Casey finds herself attracted to Tate—he’s much more down-to-earth than she expected and any physical contact between the two of them literally gives her a tingling, electric shock. As opening night draws near, Casey has some difficult decisions to make. Whom should she believe? The seemingly sincere, slighted Devlin or Tate, whose rough, arrogant exterior may only be skin deep. She’s come to love that jolt she gets when they touch—but will she get burned? 




Review/Rating:
☕☕☕☕☕ (5 cups of properly steeped but spicy tea!)
The Girl from Summer Hill can be summed up as a story within a play within lots of stories.  The start of a new series from the talented Ms. Jude Deveraux, we are transported into the charming town of Summer Hill, Virginia where a production of Pride & Prejudice is being staged for charity.  Led by the very elegant and distinguished Kit Montgomery (yes those Montgomerys!), the actors are set and the script has been written. As the town prepares and auditions are held and our heroine Acacia aka Casey prepares delicious pies and meals for the crew, two of Hollywoods gorgeous actors comes a calling.  The ever adventurous and charming Jack and the ever talented, swoonworthy Tate Landers.  And as the production proceeds in a manner not so planned, the play soon starts mirroring real life.   For the actors that play Lizzy and Darcy find themselves in a very twenty first century Pride & Prejudice plot.  The road to true love seems to be set on stage after all!

The Girl from Summer Hill will have you looking back at your beloved Pride and Prejudice in a totally different way.  Both Casey and Tate's characters are spot on Elizabeth and Darcy making readers think that this is how P&P could work in the twenty first century.  It's funny, sexy, silly and smart.  You would be frustrated, engaged, captivated and all out just in love with Tate and Casey and the rest of the gang of Summer Hill.

Bohemian is a modern day love story about two very different people whose common love for the written word brings them together and in the end may drive them apart.  Lucia and Calvin never would have met in the same place except for the presence of The Mad Ones, an old fashioned bookstore found in the beautiful area of Big Sur.  Lucia is a supermodel, at the age of 26 what use to thrill her has been leaving her bored almost.  When a scheduled shoot in an old fashioned bookstore suddenly fans the flames of her love of reading she starts yearning for more.  Calvin inherited The Mad Ones from his beloved grandfather.  His grandfather's love of reading and his lifestyle has always brought joy to a young Calvin but he never really subscribed to that way of life.  When he meets Lucia he might have been starstruck for a bit.  What does a geeky nerd like him have in common with a beautiful woman like her.  When he finds out they …

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making. Pretty soon you will be amazed on the intricate storyline balanced well with the main characters developing romance.  Fool Me Once is definitely a Catherine Bybee book.  The first in her new series, First Wives,  Fool Me Once is also a spinoff from her popular Weekday Bride series.  And yet again, Ms. Bybee delivers in her great characters, well thought out plot and melding her two series together without one overpowering the other.
The story starts out as the head of Alliance and their legal go to person, Lori try to help one of their client who unexpectedly lost her husband.  To get her away …
