    Reviewed for Midwest Book Review

    Sous chef Jill Morgan Storm, hoping to discover the secret of successful relationships, gets the bright idea to send out a "Marriage Satisfaction Survey" to couples who have been together for a good while. Jill's reeling from being dumped by her most recent lover, a college professor now dating one of his young students who won't let loose of Jill's favorite skillet. If that isn't bad enough, Jill's ready to hit panic mode. Her son will be entering college soon, and since his grades won't qualify for a scholarship, she has to come up with the tuition money. Jill's ex-husband, who is now a woman, isn't much help and Jill's well-to-do father is in prison, so Jill decides she needs a man with financial means. But the men she meets and dates seem to have more problems than Jill, who's beginning to suffer menopausal symptoms. One constant irritant: her son's former teacher, hanging around in the guise of helping her son, but Jill thinks it's only to needle her about her mothering skills. Jill determinedly forges ahead with her dating plans, unaware the answer to her problems has been there all along.

    Kathy Carmichael offers her reader a rollicking good romp with this romantic comedy. Jill's a likable character, a woman who loves her son and wants the best for him but can't seem to find a way to make that happen. The men she meets and dates are quirky and the scenarios surrounding them laugh-out-loud funny.

    Auditioning Marital Bliss!

    Jill Morgan Storm has hit 40 years old with a bang! Evaluating her life, she realizes that she's divorced, has a satisfactory job with a drunk Master Chef over her and whose job she's been covering for almost four years, a son who barely speaks to her, a need to find tuition money for that son's college years and no love life at all in the offing. So what exactly does Jill do to solve these motley seemingly insolvable dilemmas? With the assistance of her cherished friends, she comes up with a survey which she sends to actual couples who have advertised their marriage success. What's the key that makes it all click? Hilarious, hearty and shocking responses follow, printed at the beginning of each chapter, foreshadowing perhaps what is to come!<BR/><BR/>The search is on for sure! Jill's got one category of potential spouses in mind but what a motley crew she's about to meet. You'll meet Tony a.k.a. Easel Boy, a lovely gent who sports chiffon and glitter undies, a guy who freaks when Jill says she's not interested in having more children and finally you'll meet Davin Wesley who seems the least likely candidate in Jill's collection of potential suitors. <BR/><BR/>Jill's friends are as feisty as she is, with a propensity to fall back on loser ex-lovers and drink away their sorrows while conniving to help Jill meet the perfect man. Then of course, there's Jill's Mom, whose illusions or delusions, include matchmaking for Jill and throwing parties for her own marriage, minus the incarcerated Dad doing a stretch of time for an Enron-style scandal.<BR/><BR/>Hot Flash is funny and endearing, a light, warm read to lose one's self in during the cold fall and winter seasons! It's a romance waiting to happen that will amuse and delight many, many gals and guys who've "been there, done that!" <BR/><BR/>Very nice, Ms. Carmichael!

    OH MY GOODNESS!! I don¿t know when I¿ve laughed so hard!

    This is my first experience with the writing of Kathy Carmichael – but it absolutely will not be my last. I have to admit, though, I almost didn’t pick it up because I hated the cover. I’m so glad that I grabbed it on a whim because I’d have missed the most fun book I’ve read in quite a while.
    Jill’s responses to life’s set-backs are those things that I’ve always wanted to do – sending out surveys to find out how to make a marriage last and how to pick the right man, looking for a man to pay for your child’s education, breaking into your ex’s house to retrieve your beloved pan – but never had the gumption. I loved living vicariously and will be back for more!

    lighthearted amusing romp

    In Las Vegas, La Papillon sous chef Jill Morgan Storm turns forty today. After rescuing a kitchen helper form the chef and the freezer, the single mom celebrates her milestone with friends when she decides she needs a husband right now, but only for a week. Her first marriage failed and since the divorce she has not met anyone whom she is attracted to until now. Ignoring her heart, her brain insists she marry a traveling salesman. He would bring in needed money to send her son Stephen to college without the albatross of a monster student loan while only requiring satisfaction one week each month; three weeks on the road sounds perfect to Jill. He would also provide cover from breast grabber Chef Radkin.<BR/><BR/>However there is one major obstacle to Jill's perfect plan, schoolteacher Davin Wesley. He wants her and she is attracted to him. However, he is home four weeks out of a month, which makes his demands on her perpetual. On the other hand his kisses melt her brain. Years with no one activating her libido and now that she has the plan, he shows up keeping her in constant heat.<BR/><BR/>This lighthearted amusing romp contains amiable characters especially the lead couple supported by eccentrics at the restaurant, school and family. Mother and son are a dynamic duo who seems to land in one amusing situation after another especially since Davin enters the relationship. Although somewhat too frivolous, contemporary romance fans who want plenty of laughs will enjoy the frolics of HOT FLASH.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Weak motivation and vforced comedy

    Sorry, but I could not get past 50 pages of the main character's implausible problems and overall helplessness. Put in your big girl pants already!
