One Summer | [Karen Robards]

One Summer

hnny Harris is home again, his too-tight jeans and damn-your-eyes belligerence honed to perfection by a ten-year stretch in federal prison for murder. Now he’s out on parole and ready for the job Rachel Grant has promised him to help him begin a new life. Unlike the rest of the town, Rachel has always believed in her former student’s innocence. But one thing has changed. The sullenly handsome boy she remembers is still sullen, still handsome - but no longer a boy.

Publisher's Summary

Johnny Harris is home again, his too-tight jeans and damn-your-eyes belligerence honed to perfection by a ten-year stretch in federal prison for murder. Now he’s out on parole and ready for the job Rachel Grant has promised him to help him begin a new life. Unlike the rest of the town, Rachel has always believed in her former student’s innocence. But one thing has changed.

The sullenly handsome boy she remembers is still sullen, still handsome - but no longer a boy. And now the small Kentucky town is alive with gossip and whispers of a scandal, as friendship turns to passion and Rachel abandons a lifetime of propriety in the ex-con’s arms. Then the killer strikes again. All evidence points to Johnny Harris, but Rachel knows he is innocent. And she knows she is next - as a shattering truth is uncovered and dark passions explode in the relentless summer heat.

    "A Classic Robards! A must buy"
    What made the experience of listening to One Summer the most enjoyable?

    if you are a classic Robards reader, you can not miss this one. I have waited 15 yrs for this one and get a bonus as Anna Fields AKA Kate Fleming reads this one. Oh what a find.


    What did you like best about this story?

    this is pure core romance


    Have you listened to any of Kate Fleming’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this is read by the late great AKA, Anna Fields, who read the best Susan Elizabeth Phillips books ie: It had to be You.


    Any additional comments?

    I have purchased so many books by the late great ms Fields, what a waste she has passed. Enjoy this classic

    "Still a great read and even better listen"
    Would you listen to One Summer again? Why?

    Yes, without hesitation! I loved this book when it just came out in print. I was a little reluctant to buy the audio because I was afraid it would disappoint. It did not! Kate Fleming is a great reader and made the characters come to live.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Summer?

    Not one specific moment. More the theme, which is of faith and total trust. Rachel's belief in Johnny's innocence is touching.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Fleming’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not but plant to looks for other books where she is the reader.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When I first read it, yes. Some tears were shed. Although poignant, I think the way Ms. Fleming read the book had an even keel tone.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this book. Well worth the credit!!!
