I read this book years ago; but I had to downsize, after the kids went to college and during the move I lost it. Now l'm happy I found it again in the nook, because it is a big favorite. Also a big favorite is "After the Night", give it a try if you haven't read it, you won't be sorry.

Loved the hero Johnny the ex con, super bad boy, with a brain. The heroine was to perfect, stiff and boring. Covers quite a few taboos teacher/ student affair, parole after 10yrs. for murder and younger man/ older woman. It could have been better, but did love Johnny.

I couldn't put it down. I never read a book twice but I will make an exception with this one. I just wish there was a sequel.

A lovely, spicy romance to warm you on a winter night; coupled with a murder mystery to keep you intrigued. A hero, vulnerable enough to be believable will make you want to keep turning the pages. It's a book I've reread many times.

Not my favorite by a long shot. Kinda high school-ish.

Johnny Harris is considered 'trash' by the people of town. When he is convicted of murder, on very little evidence, most people see it as no more than could be expected out of 'his kind'. But Rachel Grant, who always does the proper thing, never believed in his guilt. As his ex-teacher she saw a side of Johnny that others never did. When Johnny comes home he's belligerent and angry. He's also as hooked on Rachel as he has been for half of his life, but feels she could never be happy with a guy like him. It's both heartbreaking and heartwarming to watch these two try to overcome the differences in their personalities and life styles to be together. Granted there wasn't much murder mystery involved but it wasn't needed with the rest of this story.

This is my ALL TIME favorite book. I absolutely love it. The love story between Rachel and Johnny is romantic, hot, exciting, riveting and sweet. I felt so bad for Johnny's upbringing/childhood and the events that lead up to his incarceration. He seemed like such a sweet and well intentioned character and, unfortunately, bad things happen to nice people. Rachel is equally as sweet. She doesn't have a bad bone in her body and you can totally understand why she and Johnny make a beautiful couple. This is a great book and I highly recommend to anyone looking for a little alone time in the world of Rachel & Johnny! Only ONE complaint: We didn't get a lot of insight into what Johnny was thinking. I think there's like two pages or so (maybe more) devoted to Johnny's point of view. The rest are all about Rachel's thought's. I don't know. Maybe Johnny's actions speak louder than words. It was a great read, however. I loved it!

This is the most ROMANTIC book I have read to date by Karen Robards. Ms. Robard's is a master at combining romance and mystery into her books. Her books come to life with each turn of the page. I couldn't put this book down!

Never before have I read a novel so captivating in all my literary experiences. 'One Summer' fiercely held my heart and soul from the primary page to Johnny's verbal long awaited 'I love you' on the last. This has been my first Robard's experience and I HIGHLY recommend that if you're an escapist you read it. You'll be filled with immense enthusiasm as you tear through each page with thirst for what's to happen next. Be sure to lay yourself down without anticipation of getting up because you'll be reluctant to put away this shear indulgence.
