A Really Great Escape...

I picked Summer's Love up on a day when about three catastrophic things had crashed down on me. Too upset to work or think, I grabbed it of my “to be read” pile that evening and dived in. What a refreshing plunge!

It was light and funny (I love that kind) and even made me laugh out loud in several places. In spite of my own circumstances, too. But somewhere along the line there was some real wisdom in it. It sang through the characters in a very touching way. Which—in my opinion—is the best kind of inspiration there is. Because it's catching.

I finished Summer's Love within twenty-four hours. And the really wonderful thing was that I came away not only feeling better about life, but about myself, as well. Which is why I would recommend this book to anybody. Especially if you can't afford a vacation, because this is the next best thing. For me, it was truly a great escape!


About the book...

Following the collapse of her interior design business, Kate Winston moves to Georgetown with hopes of making it as a sales rep for Tasmania, a company selling personal protection devices for women. With rapes, robberies, and domestic violence on the rise, the nation's capital is a ripe market. But Kate's stun gun party implodes when her guests demand she sweeten the deal by providing autographed copies of In Heat, the latest best-selling novel by Stu Summers. With creditors breathing down her neck, Kate drives to Page Me Books, where adoring fans clamor for an autograph with the New York Times sexy and single romance writer.

Stu expects the flirty smiles and women fawning praise, but when his editor phones to inform Stu that his latest manuscript failed to impress the publishing board, his carefully crafted career begins to unravel. Stu has one week to deliver a complete rewrite that meets his reader's demanding standards. And he would if only he could write. But he can't. Not a lick.

For years Stu has paid a church secretary to ghostwrite his novels.Only now Hattie May Hall feels God calling her to write paranormal prairie Amish thrillers with an evangelical, Cinderella twist. With Stu's career on the line and Kate's big taser sale in jeopardy, an unlikely pair of hearts collide, providing a shocking climax at the world's biggest stun gun ball.

Though a girl in high school broke his heart, Stu never lost his passion for telling funny stories on and about about his awkward romantic encounters. (Stu once closed his eyes, puckered up and kissed a wall when the girl eased away.) Today Stu is living his dream. While fiercely protective of his privacy (he refuses to divulge the name of the island from which he writes), Stu remains loyal to his readers, giving them glimpses into his pain while lacing his stories with laugh out loud humor.
