Publisher's Summary

The adopted daughter of the most powerful man in town, Schyler Crandall left Heaven, Louisiana, a brokenhearted girl. Now a crisis has brought her home to a family in conflict, a logging empire on the brink of disaster, and seething secrets that make Heaven hotter than hell.

Still in town are her beautiful younger sister, Tricia, with her cruel lies; Ken, Tricia's handsome husband, who married the wrong sister; Jigger, the pimp and ruffian with plans of his own; and Cash, proud, mysterious, and complex. It is dangerous for Schyler to even be near Cash, yet she must dare to confront the past - if there is to be any peace in Heaven.

What the Critics Say

"Carefully modulating pitch and varying the Louisiana bayou accent, Hill clearly delineates the characters, from the light voices of sisters...to the deep Cajun-tinged accent of Cash, sultry and sensual local bad boy. (AudioFile)

    "Bad Narration!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Dick Hill must have been chosen solely for his ability to perform a Cajun accent for the male protagonist. Beyond that, all of his characters sound like complete dolts, especially the heroine. Every sentence Dick speaks on her behalf makes it sound like she just got done drinking a double. It is insulting to women.

    "A classic favorite! Prefer a different narrator"

    This is one of my enduring classics by Sandra Brown. I know a lot of SB fans who read and listen to her oldies over and over again. Cash Boudreaux has never left my memories of bad-boy heroes and steaming Southern romances. His name is one of the two that readily comes to mind when I'm asked for a favorite hero (the other is JD Robb's Roarke) even though Cash is rough, uncouth and brimming over with passion. He made SiH into a contemporary bodice-ripper that send my bosom heaving, indeed.

    The narrator has never been a favorite of mine. Hill's voice and narrating style always conjures up the image of an old man in his armchair with a pipe.

    Story
    "The Bayou Experience"
    Would you listen to Slow Heat in Heaven again? Why?

    The reader brought to life so many different characters in this book. The story was well written with a story line that kept me on edge from beginning to end. I looked forward to hearing what would take place in the next chapter and what each character would do next. I really wish this book was in movie form. It is full of thrilling surprises.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The truth behind the many hidden secretes of each character. I enjoyed the revelations as the story unfolded. I enjoyed the great surprise given to the misfortunate characters.
    I appreciated the descriptions used by the writer without becoming too graphic of the more dreadful scenarios.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    I loved the true character of Cash Boudreau. The fact that he was very truthful about who he is regardless of the opinion of others. I enjoyed the confidence and boldness of his character. Even with his misfortunes, he didn't loose what it took to be the man he needed to be.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This book deserves your best attention. The Title speaks the loudest.


    Any additional comments?

    This writer has always kept me coming back for more. This book offered so much more than I expected. I really hope there will be a sequel to this book.

    "Excellent!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Slow Heat in Heaven to be better than the print version?

    Listening rather than reading this book adds so much more to the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is full of tantalizing scenes, innuendo, family dysfunction, love, hatred...all the things that make you want the story to go on forever.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dick Hill is perfect as Cash Boudreaux! Love that Cajun accent!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Did not want to take out the ear buds!


    Any additional comments?

    My favorite Sandra Brown book so far.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Got into the story in the first chapter and kept my interest to the end. Well narrated and riveting storyline. Could easily have read it all over again as soon as I'd finished The characters were well rounded and exciting.
    I won't give away the storyline definitely recommend for a good read.


    What other book might you compare Slow Heat in Heaven to and why?

    Other thriller suspense books, Karen rose also an excellent author.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Smooth yet intense when the plot calls for. Delightful on the ears, excellent characterisation. Will be looking for other books narrated by him. Love the way he did Cash very sexy and Schyler depicted as a strong sassy yet feminine woman. Simply one of the best combinations on audible, along with Susan Erickson and J D Robb of course.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time I would definitely sit and listen to this narrator and book in one go. I will certainly listen again.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic way to spend your audible credits. Sandra Brown is and excellent author. Just the right amount of suspense, drama and love.

    "Loved this book!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Slow Heat in Heaven the most enjoyable?

    Dick Hill's voice just makes you want to head to the bayou. He does a great job of bringing the lead male (Cash) to life for the listener. And oh so steamy!! Whew


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Slow Heat in Heaven?

    True to Sandra Brown style, the location and the characters come to life in your minds eye.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a great, and heated getaway, if you are reading for pure escape this is my favorite Sandra Brown yet. that said I did find that the story line was pretty easy to figure out early on. Not as much twist as some of her other books but with Dick Hills narration that certainly did not matter....(Don't tell but I have listened to it twice)

    "FANTASTIC! An Older SB Suspense - Action - Romance"
    Would you listen to Slow Heat in Heaven again? Why?

    Yes, though not right away like I feel with some books. This is classic Sandra Brown, great to pull out again in a few years.

    The adopted daughter of the most powerful man in town, Schyler Crandall left Heaven, Louisiana, a brokenhearted girl. Now a crisis has brought her home to a family in conflict, a logging empire on the brink of disaster, and seething secrets that make Heaven hotter than hell.

    Still in town are her beautiful younger sister, Tricia, with her cruel lies; Ken, Tricia's handsome husband, who married the wrong sister; Jigger, the pimp and ruffian with plans of his own; and Cash, proud, mysterious, and complex. It is dangerous for Schyler to even be near Cash, yet she must dare to confront the past - if there is to be any peace in Heaven.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cash-he's complex, straightforward, dark, sexy, overly competent, yummy.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Although I've heard better Cajun accents performed - Dick Hill does a great job with a varied cast of characters: a southern woman, a Cajun man, an elderly, weak heart attacked old man, etc. Steady as always.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book with a NON PREDICTABLE plot. It had me questioning til the end. However, it only took a few minutes to get all the pieces to fall into place.

    Some (very little) cussing and a few 'romantic' episodes-nothing hard core.

    I totally enjoyed this book, it's my favorite Sandra Brown so far, I liked it even better than Envy, which is also extremely good.
    It grips you from the beginning and doesn't let you free until the very last sentence. The twisted relationships between Schyler, her family members and Cash make this book so very diverting and exciting.
    Dick Hill's perfomance, especially Cash's voice, is great as well.
    Two thumbs up!
