Summer Hill, Book 2
Heat Factor: For two people who hold off on hanky panky, this sure got scalding hot.
Character Chemistry: I can’t handle how much I wanted them to get together
Plot: Terri ends up unexpectedly shacking up with Nate, a new resident to her sleepy lake resort town and fiance to the town golden girl. Terri’s a strong, capable woman who has shouldered the weight of her mother’s poor reputation as well as the loss of her mother as a young child. There’s mystery. There’s a sexy friendship a-brewing. There’s humor. It’s wonderful.
Overall: Despite an early on aversion, this book was straight-up satisfying.
Welcome to Dueling Reviews.
Moderated by Erin, who has no emotional investment in this book at all.
Heat Factor: It’s scorching…which is fitting, because with the stuff these two pulled in a Catholic church they may very well end up somewhere toasty.
Character Chemistry: I don’t dig what they dig…but they dig it, and each other, a LOT.
Plot: Catholic priest ends up attracted to a woman who is apparently irresistible but has no hobbies or interests or personality and they end up finding a new, sexy spiritual path together.
Overall: This book has some majorly interesting dynamics but I had to put it down out of sheer frustration many times (and not the FUN kind of frustration, either).
Heat Factor: Absolutely filthy, in the best way
Character Chemistry: Father Bell would have chemistry with a cardboard box
Plot: Catholic priest has sex, angst ensues
Overall: I had so much fun reading this book
McCabe Trilogy, Book 2
Review of McCabe Trilogy, Book 1

Plot: I love you, but I must wed another
Overall: Don’t like the trope, liked the book
Heat Factor: Moderate
Character Chemistry: The best thing about this book
Plot: We are studying Great White sharks because they are the coolest!
