Book Review: Lost in Love (Summerhill) Kate Perry

ABOUT THE BOOK
Portia Summerhill feels like a loser.

Thirty-something, jobless, and living at home... How could she not? Next to her accomplished sisters, Portia's achievements--or lack thereof--are that much more noticeable.

The one thing Portia can claim is expert knowledge on antiques and her ancestry, and in a moment of serendipity, the perfect job lands in her lap: curator at the Museum of British Peerage. There's one caveat: the museum won't hire her unless she brings the family jewels with her. Or, more specifically, the infamous Summerhill tiara.

Except a cowboy hotelier stands between her and her tiara. Jackson Waite needs help getting his newest posh hotel launched and, luckily for Portia, he's willing to make a trade. If she helps him meet the deadline for his new resort, he'll give her the tiara. Only, the more time she spends with Jackson, the more Portia wonders if she wants the tiara or the man keeping it from her
  
REVIEW

I loved the story of Portia and Jack.  Kate Perry brings these characters to life wonderfully, and the Summerhill series brings new life into the world she created in the Laurel Heights books. Her take on a cowboy romance, where she took the cowboy “off the ranch” and put him in a stuffy proper British world was a refreshing take the common cowboy/high society story.  Perry also manages to weave the wonderful “B” story of Quinn and Meredith as well, which is just as interesting and romantic as the “A” story.
The Summerhill sisters are so much fun to get to know and I can’t wait for the next novel to get to know them better.

OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kate has tangoed at midnight with a man in blue furry chaps, dueled with flaming swords in the desert, and strutted on bar tops across the world and back. She’s been kissed under the Eiffel Tower, had her butt pinched in Florence, and been serenaded in New Orleans. But she found Happy Ever After in San Francisco with her Magic Man.

Kate’s the bestselling author of the Laurel Heights Novels, as well as the Family and Love and Guardians of Destiny series. She’s been translated into several languages and is quite proud to say she’s big in Slovenia. All her books are about strong, independent women who just want love.

Most days, you can find Kate in her favorite cafĂ©, working on her latest novel. Sometimes she’s wearing a tutu. She may or may not have a jeweled dagger strapped to her thigh...
