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!
