Mercury Rising, Book 1

A year after packing and moving from L.A. to Mercury, North Carolina, John Ford still hasn’t adjusted to the heat. Or to life without his long-time partner. As he fixes up the old house he bought, the quiet becomes his only companion, and he’s content with that—until a deep-voiced stranger plants himself under a tree across the street.

Eight years ago, Connor Meecham left someone behind in that house—himself. Now he’s back to find the man he used to be, before drugs and prison sent his life careening off the tracks. But it’s not his mother’s face peering through the window any more. It’s a man who seems as lost as Conn himself.

When John learns what the house—and the dying town—mean to Conn, he finds himself opening the door to his heart. Just a crack. But it’s enough to get mixed up in a world of emotions as complicated as the recipe for the perfect cherry pie. Where one misstep can turn something sweet and juicy into one hot mess.

This book has been previously published.

Warning: Contains a guitar-wielding, brooding Southern boy and a reclusive millionaire with a weakness for cherry pie and hot coffee. Excessive porch sittin’ and lemonade included.

My Review

So glad I bought this book!

Oops! This was supposed to be my first read and review for Netgalley, but apparently I have something to learn about archive dates. I missed my free download by one day. Sigh. What is a good professional reader to do? Why, I bought the book myself because I wanted to read it! So glad. So glad.

What a beautiful story of second chances, the lifelong potential of new friends, the wonder of new lovers, and the close-knit community of a small town. This is the first book I’ve read by Samantha Kane. I guarantee I’ll be picking up another very soon. I had a rather unusual (for me) reaction to one of the sex scenes. I was so touched by it, I started to cry. Yeah, it was sexy. No, not just sexy…HOT. But I cried because the connection was so beautiful.

Thank you, Samantha Kane, for sharing your story with us. Mwah!
