One Hot Summer by Kat French: Alice loves Borne Manor; the stately home complete with gardens, treehouse, boathouse, and four tenant cottages captured her heart from the moment she saw it. Now, she’s desperate to find a way to keep her beloved home after kicking out her cheating husband. Robinson badly needs some time away from everything while he recovers from the horror of finding his wife with another man. He’s walked away from her, his manager, his fame, and music.
Alice decides to rent out her home as a way to bring in money while she considers what comes next for her. With some help from her best friend and tenant, they renovate the old Airstream so Alice can still live on the grounds. Robinson had no desire to take his break from his life and the world in the English countryside, but it’s also one of the last places anyone would expect to find him.
“You live in an Airstream.”
Alice looked at him steadily, taken aback by his bluntness. “Yes, I do.”
His face had confusion written all over it. “You moved out of that huge house into a van in your own garden?”
While renting the manor solves problems for both of them, they don’t exactly get off on the right foot. Over time and with continued interactions, they come to realize that they have quite a bit in common. Both are soured on relationships and it didn’t help that they are clearly attracted to each other.
With the summer stretching in front of them, they embark on a holiday fling as a distraction from their respective problems. Their once pointed barbs turn into actual conversations. Both know that the summer will eventually end and they have to consider how to move on and put their own lives back together once that happens.
“It’s turned out to be a more life-changing summer than I’d bargained on, too.”
“Then I guess you could say we’re even,” he said softly. “You fixed me, and I fixed you.” He hi-fived her. “Good job, partner.”
