Book Review – One Hot Summer by Kat French

I do actually read books sometimes and although I do not follow current trends and fads with best sellers, I do know what I like and will try to occasionally share them with you.

This book is one of my favourite reads of 2017

One Hot Summer: A laugh-out-loud love story



Alice McBride’s husband Brad is super famous, totally gorgeous . . . and having an affair with his co-star. And now it’s splashed across all the newspapers.

After kicking Brad out, Alice decides to rent out her beloved home for the summer. And the last person she expects to arrive at Borne Manor is a sexy cowboy called Robinson.

Country music star Robinson has had his own share of heartache, and he’s come to Borne Manor to escape from it all. Neither Alice nor Robinson are looking for romance, but the spark between them can’t be ignored.

Could a holiday romance help heal their broken hearts? And what will happen when their long hot summer together comes to an end?

I love a good easy read and a cosy romance, even if the plot line is pretty predictable. Kat French has been a  favourite author for quite some time( and we are Facebook friends) so when I added a book to my forever shelf (my minuscule line of would read again books, separate from the hoards of others) I knew I would definitely take this book on a trip with me to read all over again.

I loved this book for so many reasons – Alice, the quietly strong and determined heroine who has been wronged in love and just wants to keep her home.

Alice is relatable, determined and stubborn. A stand on your own feet and try to take control of your life type, that I fully appreciate.


Robinson – the hot broken hearted country singer trying to escape his fame for a little while.

He’s kind, confident and genuinely a nice guy with a hurt heart. Good looking and very talented. The kind of man you want to swoop in and sweep you off your feet.


The motley crew of friends you really want in your life and the beautiful scene and settings created in this book.

And how could I forget her adorable caravan (the silver Airstream), that she moves into while renting out her gorgeous home to the very handsome Robinson.


What you have is an idyllic setting for two very sad people to meet, heal and fall in love – and that is exactly what happens. Neither of them intending to invest heart in their summer fling and yet they are so perfect for one another it’s almost painful.

Yes, it’s obvious that this is heading to a HEA but that is why I adore cosy romance. I read them for the emotions and the smiles and this one was nooo disappointment. Kat did it again in a feel good book that made you smile more than once and filled you with warm tingles at its closure.

Hot enough to keep you interested, a lot of cute and funny moments and the ex gets his just desserts. Alice wins at love and the whole crew get a dream ending that ties it all up with a gorgeous bow.

This book is a no brainer easy and light read. No heavy emotional stuff or overly gnawing topics and the characters are both witty and likable. Kat is well known for her easy read style and this one has a cover to die for. I am a huge cover whore and this one is a firm favourite with its colourful bright and sassy design. I own this as a paperback and it will grace my pretty books forever.
