fine police procedural romance 3 Aug. 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
For twenty-five years Bay and Sean McCabe have been married and lived in Hubbard�s Point, Connecticut. They have three preadolescent children. The couple has had their ups and downs especially caused by Sean�s womanizing. However, ever since last year when their oldest child Annie overheard her father speaking romantically to another woman shaking up Sean, the relationship seems honest and solid.
The youngest child calls from the little league field to inform her mom that her dad failed to pick her up as previously arranged. Falling into routine, Bay rationalizes that Sean must be running late at the bank where he is a vice president and drives over to bring Peg home. When an employee of Sean calls asking for him and why he missed a key meeting, Bay begins to worry. Annie rides her bike to the family boat with Bay and a close friend Tara following. They find blood and call the police. Bay learns the FBI is involved because of embezzlement shenanigans at the bank. With her only lead being Dan Connolly, someone she had a puppy crush on before she married, Bay makes inquiries into what happened to her spouse.
Luanne Rice�s latest thriller is THE PERFECT SUMMER novel for fans of police procedural romances. The action is loaded and the tension shrewdly elevated especially as Bay begins to realize that her spouse is not coming home and as she, Tara, and Annie begin to unravel the truth. Though the interrelationships are explained, they still seem stretched until the dichotomously plausible final note to Annie is found and explains all to readers who will find this an entertaining romantic suspense tale.

I always enjoy a Luanne Rice book 10 Nov. 2003
By Theresa W - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Over the last year Luanne Rice has become a favorite author of mine. I'll admit that the more I read of hers, I do wish for a bit more originality, going back to her earlier books, that might not have gotten a lot of acclaim, but they sure gained me as a reader. Maybe it's this way with most writers, after you've read about 10 of their books...I don't know. Either way, this still was a good book with a great plot- the bit of mystery was a little unique for Rice- maybe she's realizing her faithful readers need a bit of variety? Over-all, I recommend this book to faithful fans and those who have yet to try a story by Rice. The books always have a touch of magic.

Excellent, as usual..... 12 Aug. 2003
By Marion - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've come to depend upon Luanne Rice's books to always be riveting, romantic and well-written and this one did not disappoint me. She writes about broken families with compassion, warmth and sensitivity. The subplot in this one of Dan's daughter's anorexia and 'cutting' was timely and handled with care. I highly recommend this and all of her books.

Heartwarming 8 Jan. 2004
By Judith E. Pavluvcik - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Perfect Summer by Luanne Rice is another heart warmer by one of my favorite authors! Rice manages to immediately draw the reader into the very depths of all of her characters, so that one can feel all of their emotions, all of their struggles and all of their dreams. Rice weaves magic into all of her stories, filling them with the reality of life, but also with hope and love. Her characters in this story were complete and the relationships portrayed were intense, believable, and amazing. Her characters come alive and fill your imagination so that you really don't want to put the book down!
This book not only had a romantic twist to it, but it also had a great mysterious and intriguing element to the story. Rice skillfully led the reader through twists and turns and one did not know until the very end, which character was the perpetrator.
Rice's books are not icky sweet romantics, where all the characters live in a fantasy world. Instead, her books are so filled with life; the realities of life and the messages of love are indeed heartwarming. Elements of romance and intrigue are woven throughout, interlacing all the incredible relationships.
After reading one of Rice's books, one comes away feeling uplifted! I absolutely love all of her books!

Summer read extraordinaire 10 Sept. 2003
By Sue Hodge - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had run out of things to read while on vacation and picked this up at the hotel giftshop, never having read anything by Luanne Rice and only having the expectation that it would be a light romance. What a pleasant surprise! Sure, the romance was there, but there was mystery, intrigue, great friendships between Bay and Tara, as well as Bay and Danny and their daughters. The mystery surrounding Sean's death was well drawn, and there were enough twists and turns to keep me guessing til very near the end of the book. I loved Rice's vivid descriptions of the town, the beach, and the characters...everything came alive! I'll be sure to check out Rice's other books!
