Review of One Hot Summer by Kat French - Five **


Being married to a celebrity isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when that celebrity has a very public affair with his co-star…
Alice McBride is determined that the one thing she won't lose in her marriage breakup is Borne Manor, her beloved home, but she gets more than she bargained for when she rents it out for the summer and a sexy cowboy comes to stay.
Country music star Robinson Duff has had his own share of heartbreak and needs somewhere quiet to hide out for the summer. Neither Alice nor Robinson are in any position for romance; the timing is terrible and they're both rebounding like out of control frisbees.
Can a holiday romance help mend their broken hearts. Or will it just make things even worse when the long hot summer comes to its inevitable end?


If I could give more stars, I would. I'm not really into 'celebrity' romance stories but this is very different. The celebrity part is almost incidental as Alice and Robinson's relationship develops. And the use of his celebrity status in the village of Borne adds to the humour and affection. 

This is an unashamedly romantic book and all the villagers seem to get touched by Cupid in one way or another. Wiccans and wigs are just part of the general hilarity and more loyal friends you could not wish for.

I really cried twice in the book - once with sadness and once with joy. I loved how Alice's views of 'home' and 'sanctuary' changed as the book progressed.

Please, please buy this book - you won't be disappointed, I promise!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
