Product Description

Product Description

Marilee James has a complicated life--caring for her special-needs son, playing surrogate mother to an abandoned niece and temporarily running the local paper until the new managing editor arrives.

She's so busy attending to everyone else that her own yearnings get pushed aside. Then Tate Holloway comes speeding into town in his bmw, bringing his whiz-bang laptop, journalistic integrity and the thrill of remembering what running a small-town newspaper is all about. Tate's a firm believer in the little things that make life worthwhile: overripe peaches, a good dog, a passionate kiss.

The kinds of things he thinks Marilee needs to rediscover--with him. Problem is, she's already engaged. Not about to let a little thing like a fiancé stand in his way, Tate sets out to win Marilee's heart, little by little, starting with cold tea on a hot day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read all the Nicholas Sparks books? 17 May 2006
By Mary Rice - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was heartbroken when I finished the last Nicholas Sparks book. I wanted to read more or something similar, so after wondering through the pages of Amazon I came across Curtiss Ann Matlock's Cold Tea on a Hot Day. It was just what I was looking for! After reading the book, I fell in love with the author and have continued reading her works. If you want a good easily-read romance, this is the one! It was so good that I read it for six hours the first day I received it! If you are a romance novel junkie like myself, read COLD TEA ON A HOT DAY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, full of earthy wisdom 17 Sep 2002
By Marion - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the perfect, relaxing read for a hot Indian Summer day. I loved the simple, uncomplicated characters and the down home plot which revolved around Marilee, her mentally challenged son and niece with just the right amount of romance thrown in for good measure. If you're looking for a well-written 'feel good' book, then this is the one for you. I was eager to read the sequel when I got to the happy ending.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing 14 Dec 2005
By Annie - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Marilee James is a single mother of a special needs son and also the caretaker for her sisters daughter. She works at the local paper but has no real direction in her life. She has spent years dating the local veterinarian and is having trouble making that final commitment to get married to him. There is something that keeps holding her back and until Tate Holloway, the new editor of the paper comes to town she is not sure what her reasons may be.

In a simple book about romance, friendship, and family Curtiss Ann Matlock takes us to Valentine, Oklahoma and brings us a story you wont soon forget. If you are a fan of southern fiction or are looking for a good clean read, then Cold Tea On A Hot Day is just what you need. Also, there is a follow up book At The Corner of Love and Heartache.

4.0 out of 5 stars There's Pure Pleasure in the Sipping 3 Sep 2001
By Dee A. Nash - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
From the title, to the finish, I found this book a true pleasure. All of the characters were enjoyable, and I liked the fact that their problems were based in reality.
Marilee, like many other single moms, is trying to balance her life while remaining true to her beliefs, and her life centers around her son and niece. In walks Tate, the new editor, who wants to sweep Marilee off her feet, but he finds that she is already involved with the local vet. Besides, Marilee won't give the charming Tate the time of day because she thinks she's been down that road before. I thought the subplots were especially fine and loved the problems of the older supporting characters. I felt that, for once, the elder generation was presented with the reality and dignity it deserves. Further, Matlock's use of faith as a cornerstone to her characters' lives reminded me of Jan Karon's tales of Father Tim. I would suggest this book as a truly refreshing read to be enjoyed on the front porch next to, of course, a pitcher of sweet tea.

4.0 out of 5 stars FOR FUN 30 July 2002
By Bellaviva - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am an English teacher and I adored this book. For summer reading this book is perfect. The story moves along and is light enough to not cause the reader any stress... I found the characters to be likable and clearly formed. Though I have absolutely nothing in common with the main charater, Marilee, I connected with her. If you need to read something to get your mind off of something upsetting in your current life, this book will ease your mind with its sweetness. Pardon the pun. Enjoy...remember- READING SHOULD BE FUN!!
