Summer is the season for sin. When Ted Clinton arrived at the vacation inn, he found that it featured some unexpected diversions. Like sleek Ruth Henderson and her bevy of hostesses whose job it was to please male guests. Lady vacationers, too, starving for love and excitement, did their share to turn summertime into playtime.
Office-girl Mary Gordon, for, instance, as accessible as the adjoining room, managed to be wearing not a thing when Ted opened her door. It made little sense to Sally, one of the waitresses, a fresh young product of the local countryside. Then one night an old codger caught her alone, forced her to learn how hotel guests could be amused. At this point Ted had a change of heart. He figured Ruth and her hostesses were fine for games, and Mary Gordon was perfect for hot-weather romance. But the slightly used Sally was good for more than vacation pleasures. She had enough unslaked passion to last a man a lifetime.
I understand Orrie Hitt has somewhat of a cult following, and I understand why. The language in this book took me back to the sixties -- language which would enflame many in our current "land of the offended." It was such a fun listen! A not-too-complicated plot, populated by memorable and already-familiar characters. This is my first time listening to Alan Taylor read, and I really enjoyed it. His voice is smooth, has a good cadence, and does not distract from the story. I'll add him to my list of favorite readers.
