Publisher's Summary

A sassy redhead with an axe to grind…

After catching her husband kissing another woman in the barn, Loretta Sullivan Bailey left Lonesome Canyon Ranch and swore she’d never come back. But when her daughter threatens to drop out of college to become a rancher’s wife, Loretta refuses to let her baby make the same mistake she did. She returns to the ranch, determined to get her daughter back in school by the summer’s end…and resolute on ignoring her feelings for her ex-husband.

A bullheaded but oh so sexy cowboy…

A cowboy from his hat to his boots, ruggedly handsome rancher Jackson Bailey is none too pleased that his feisty - and gorgeous - ex-wife has suddenly shown up seventeen years after their divorce. But despite all their fighting and fussing, the two stubborn former lovers soon discover that old flames burn the hottest. Can they finally put aside their differences and find happiness together…forever?

Don’t bother

I have read other Carolyn brown books that were fun and enjoyable. I did not like one character in this book. There was also a fair amount of unnecessary swearing.

Borrring...

I'm sorry. I really wanted to like this, but it was one of the most tedious books I have listened to. (I really enjoyed THE LADIES ROOM). You knew what the ending would be from the beginning but getting there was a monotonous, repetitive ride. I found myself yelling, "Enough" as yet another thought or incident was repeated. The narrator got better towards the end and didn't sound as much like a hick. Just didn't care for it. (You probably got that...)

Fun entertainment!

Some like it hot, Texas hot and full of strong willed women. Like most of Carolyn Brown's books. A fun, light and entertaining listen.

The same thang, the same thang, the same thang:(

What disappointed you about Long, Hot Texas Summer?

What happens when you read the same thang, the same thang, the same thang, Wellll, you get bored. I have listened to several, 8 to be exact, this the 9th one but I don't even have to finish it to know the divorced parents are going to remarry or at the very least become a couple again. For some reason this book seems extra obvious, or maybe I should stop listening to her books. Plus the woman curses every other word, so does the housekeeper in Texas. I don't think I will be finishing this book.

What could Carolyn Brown have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Put at least a little obscurity in the book

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laural Merlington?

No she can't help what was written for her to read.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Long, Hot Texas Summer?

So far everything after the confrontation when the man comes home with his school teacher girlfriend

Any additional comments?

Dreadful this time, I want my money back or another book in place of this one!

Love me some Texas

The friends and family in this story had me hooked from the beginning. Carolyn has a writing style that is unmatched so far that I have found. She makes the characters so real and relatable. I love the passion, the fire, and the conflict the characters hold.

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

Good narrative. Cute story.

What other book might you compare Long, Hot Texas Summer to and why?

Many of Carolyn Brown's stories have a similar theme of finding love. Any of them in this contemporary romance genre are good enough to recommend.

Almost all of them.

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

Lots of smiles while listening.

Any additional comments?

I hope Carolyn Brown keeps writing. I appreciate as well that so many titles are available on kindle unlimited. My favorite is still The Ladies Room.
