Review: Hidden Summit by Robyn Carr

Hidden Summit by Robyn Carr

Publisher: Mira 
Pages: 400 
Format: ARC

Goodreads:  Sick of running into her cheery ex-husband and his new wife, Leslie Petruso accepts a job at the Virgin River branch of Haggerty Construction and takes the high road right out of town. Now she’s got Paul Haggerty’s business running like a well-oiled machine. In fact, things are so busy Paul jumps at the chance to hire an extra set of hands. 

Just like Leslie, Conner Danson has been burned by love. But if Leslie was disappointed by her relationship 
going bad, Conner was decimated. He’s got no time for women…although he spends an awful lot of time pretending not to notice Leslie. And she’s pretty busy “ignoring” the chemistry between them. 

According to Conner and Leslie, they have only one thing in common—they’re done with love. But everyone in Virgin River can see that things are heating up at Haggerty Construction. And as far as Paul Haggerty can tell, the best thing he can do is hang on to his hard hat and watch the sparks fly!

Kritters Thoughts:  A perfect piece of women's fiction, filled with mystery, intrigue and of course some romance.  A story that bounces back and forth between a man and a woman who find themselves in a small town both escaping past loves and him maybe a little more.  He is hiding from a crazy mobster that would definitely want him gone as he is a sole witness to a murder that could nail this mobster down.    

I loved watching their romance slowly grow through the awkward first meeting to, well I just can't share or it would ruin your reading!  Especially since I recommend this one to fans of the romance genre.  There isn't so much push and pull as in some romances which tends to make the story a little unbelievable and may even drag the story down - not so in this book.  You are hooked from page one until the end.   

One warning to those who may pick up this one, if you are faint of heart when it comes to sexy times in a book - this one had a few scenes that bordered on racy, but nothing beyond what you may find on your daily soap opera.

Rating:  definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
