Summer..

Wow, this book was really good. I enjoyed it. The food.. the deserts.. and the two of them Summer and Blake. Well written and combined. A must hear. I loved the way it was put together. Thank you Nora Roberts.

Sweet Story

This was not a great story, but it was cute and sweet. It entertained me and kept me interested until the end. The story made you want to know what was going to happen and how it would end. Summer and Blake are interesting enough. The sequel to this is Lessons Learned and they play off of each other.

No doubt this was one of Nora Robert's earlier books.

If you are looking for a short quick sweet story this is it.

Nellie Chalfant does a good job with the narration.

Not bad...

If you are a Nora Roberts fan (and I am!), this story typifies her earlier works. It has all the elements of her romances, although they were slightly dated. But if you are looking for a light read without a lot of drama, this will fit the bill.

Nothing but Lucy, no substance to the story!!

This book was not for me. I was hoping for a light romance with a little substance, but it was more a lust for food and lustful romance. More sex than loving relationships. Though if that is what you're looking for, the book was written fairly well.

Summer Lyndon, super chef who commands respect and large payments for her delectable treats, is hired by Blake Cocharan, successful hotel owner, to super class his hotel restaurants. The attraction is immediate and goes through some issues before all live happily ever after.

The best part was the narration of the book on audio. Great accents.

Snooze

What disappointed you about Summer Desserts?

It drags. I had to stop on chapter 4. Boring

How could the performance have been better?

She was ok. The book was the problem

Let me first say I first read this story more years than I'd like to count ago. It was good then and it is good now. This time I listened through Audible. The narrator was excellent which added to the story. Nellie Chalfants interpretation and narrating this story was spot on. The snappy dialogue and accents were delightful. I am grateful that this story stands on it's own yet has a connection with Lessons Learned.

This is my Bad Day Go To Story...I love it.

I just love this story. It is short, well written, well narrated, well produced. But it starts with the story. The characters so well developed. Love it!
When I need to feel better this story works for me.
