When I received Indian Summer for reviewing, then due to the title I was thinking that is has something to do with middle-aged woman seeking for late love. Boy was I wrong! Indian Summer took me exactly to a place indicated in the title, to India! There indeed was a woman, as I guessed and there was love in Indian Summer plus a lot of extras, which I really enjoyed!
Indian Summer takes us to India. Young woman, Dr. Cara Newman is getting an exciting possibility to travel to India and participate in a field work to find and Indian wild dog - dhole. Cara has not been on the field for a while and is little lost and scared when arriving to India. Everything what she sees and experiences is different from her usual surroundings in US.
In the office she is partnered up with Jai who is a doctor turned to zoologist and who is assigned to work on the field together with Cara. Jai and Cara are both little skeptical about each other in the field, but they find the attraction towards each other quite quickly. Jai is awed and sometimes annoyed about Cara's courage and persistence of finding the dog and Cara is impressed by Jai's supportiveness. When their relationship is getting more serious, then the differences of the two worlds where they are from are starting to play an important role for both of them.
Indian Summer is not only a typical erotica book, the plot and the story are very solid. Yes, there is a lot of sexual content in this book, but the plot still remains unbiased by it. There is a good story told in Indian Summer! The clash of different cultures, traditions, religion - it's all there. Besides, the author did an excellent job to describe the surroundings in details - the colorfulness of Indian city, the nature in the desert - you could almost feel and tough the boiling hot temperature, dust and the sand in your mouth while reading! It was definitely both hot and interesting story!

This was a quick, fun, light & easy read from Emily Cale. Cara is a zoologist and goes to India for a project and she is partnered with Jai. Their connection is almost immediate and most of the book revolves around the cultural differences between them, how they overcome them and the fight to find & save the Indian wild dog.
-The relationship between Cara & Jai was very authentic and I enjoyed its progression which was very believable.
-The author did an incredible job of writing the rich culture of India in such vivid detail, it felt as if I was there. The research that the author must have done to obtain such imagery, phenomenal! It was refreshing to see a not-so-typical setting and really brought the story to another level. Almost as if it were a secondary character.
-My only chief complaint with the story has nothing really to do with the story itself, but with the editing. I 'm a stickler for mistakes, I'm constantly finding them in books and this one had quite a few. I just wish more time had been spent in the editing process. However, I have no qualms with the story!
Great read that moves at a great pace!
