strides into the interview with confidence, a snappy suit and, the stunning pearls of her ancestor, Lady Catherine Summerhill Unfortunately for Portia, the director of the gallery is quite concerned about her lack of skills training a degree you get the idea but is willing to take her on if and only if she can bring with her the famed Summerhill Tiara Agreeing instantly and determined to become gainfully employed, Portia strides out knowing good and well that the tiara was at Suncrest Park which is now in the hands of someone decidedly not a Summerhill Jackson Waite is a tried and true Texan with the hat, boots, manners, accent and, tight fitting jeans to prove it What Jackson Waite also has is a job he hates When his dad was forced to retire due to health concerns, Jackson was forced to take over the family business and he is not pleased what pleases Jackson even less is the trip to London he is being forced to take Checking in on a musty old property that is currently being refurbished is the damn last thing Jackson wants to do but his dad is a hard man to refuse and very, very stubborn Thankfully, Jackson will be able to continue on with his side projects while his second in command, Quinn and their personal assistant Meredith will oversee all the real work Oh, how little Jackson knows Neither Jackson nor Portia are at all prepared for their worlds to collide but collide they do Portia is intent on getting the Summerhill tiara and her job and Jackson is intent on getting far, far better acquainted with the Lady Portia Though the two are certainly interested in one another and the attraction is undeniable, there are a lot of obstacles to a relationship First and foremost is the arrangement the two have between them for the Summerhill tiara Portia has agreed to help Meredith sort and catalogue all of the antiquities from Suncrest Park and in turn, Jackson will hand over the tiara and everyone can go back to their happy little lives HA As with book one in the series, Kate Perry throws all kinds of obstacles in the path of Portia and Jackson on their way to a wonderful HEA There are the sisters YAY who must approve, there is Jackson s father who hasn t quite gotten over his son losing his former fianc who happens to be Meredith by the way , there s the great pond between the two of them and, there s the small matter of Portia finding her self worth and realizing she really does have skills, talents and, the ability to love someone so very unlike her miserable father Believe it or not, there is a life to be had for a thirty something peer who still lives at home, has no degree, and no appreciable skills.The Bottom Line I am the new and totally self appointed cheerleader for Kate Perry s Summerhill series I just love the Summerrhill sister s and the every changing and growing dynamic they have between them I love that Perry didn t immediately bring all the girls back together as one big happy family as soon as dear old dad died the girls are working their way back to one another and real relationships in the midst of living their own lives Even though the story revolves around Portia and Jackson, the rest of the family plays a part major or minor depending on the person as do some of the other characters such as Quinn and Meredith Though there is a large cast of characters, Perry does a fine job of keeping everyone separated and clearly defining their roles In truth, Perry s super power is creating very real, very relatable characters that sort of just suck you in Her secondary super power is inserting those characters into fun scenarios and situations that keep the plot moving along quickly and most interestingly In all, Lost in Love is a very fine read and very good addition to a delightful series

    Same formula as the previous books, different characters However, there are a lot of other storylines that happen here as well.So this one s about Portia, who is encouraged to secure a position at the Museum of British Peerage by her mother, since P knows so much about Summerhill history But the jerk that runs the MBP will only give her a job to curate the Summerhill collection if she ll handover the Summerhill Tiara which was last located at her beloved Suncrest Manor which was sold by her Same formula as the previous books, different characters However, there are a lot of other storylines that happen here as well.So this one s about Portia, who is encouraged to secure a position at the Museum of British Peerage by her mother, since P knows so much about Summerhill history But the jerk that runs the MBP will only give her a job to curate the Summerhill collection if she ll handover the Summerhill Tiara which was last located at her beloved Suncrest Manor which was sold by her late father to a hotel developer.Jackson is the CEO of the hotel development group he doesn t want to run it but is forced to by his father, and in fact the day to day ops are handled by Quinn, who the secondary story involves Portia seeks out J to get the tiara back and ends up sorting and curating the antiques that had been removed from Suncrest to make way for the renovations J s dad also wants him to get back together with an ex fiance, Meredith, who is also the interior design person for the company However, Quinn s clearly interested in helping Meredith accomplish her bucket list, but no one knows that the reason she broke it off with J is because she wasn t in love with him and she was diagnosed with breast cancer.We also meet Imogen, the Summerhill sister and actress, who is hiding out after a jerk of a boyfriend released a sex tape of them to boost his own brand Viola is in the process of divorcing her cheating husband and dealing with her sulky 14 yr old daughter Luca the race car driver friend of Nick, Rosalind s fiance has inserted himself into the lives of the Summerhill women because he s interested in Beatrice And something s up with Lady Jacs, but no one knows what yet.The P J storyline was kinda boring the Q M relationship was wayintriquing and romantic.And one day I d like to have my own orangery in my home

    So, the description of the book just mentions about Portia and Jackson but forgets to mention about Meredith Jack s ex Fiance and Quinn Jack s friend and coworker When I was first reading this book and realized that there wasthen Jack and Portia s POV it lost me a bit This has two story lines interwoven into one Portia doesn t have much skills but she knows her families history and wants to be able to get a job in Museum Problem is the director of the place won t consider her reque So, the description of the book just mentions about Portia and Jackson but forgets to mention about Meredith Jack s ex Fiance and Quinn Jack s friend and coworker When I was first reading this book and realized that there wasthen Jack and Portia s POV it lost me a bit This has two story lines interwoven into one Portia doesn t have much skills but she knows her families history and wants to be able to get a job in Museum Problem is the director of the place won t consider her request unless she hands over her families heirloom tiara as a part of the museum In order for her to get it she must offer her services to Jack so she can get the tiara and she can work for him until she gets it Little did they know they would fall for one another.Meredith has a secret she couldn t tell Jack and she refuses to live her life with a man she doesnt love Now she had hopes for the future and makes a bucket list When Quinn walks into her office and takes a peek at the list he wants to help her especially to help her out with that last thing on the list Want to know what it was Read the book I thought the book was interesting, although for me it dragged a bit I wished there wasdrama I guess, but that s OK I think I m getting used too having books over do it with the drama When I was reading this book it I liked how it was two story lines that meshed together without being too much I liked that I got the point of views of all four characters even if i was a bit confused at first Overall I did enjoy this book 4 of 5 Stars

    You step into the elevator and notice as the doors close that your stockings need adjusting, so you think you are safe to lift your skirt and proceed to adjust them How many of us have done this Come on Be honest We all have There is a feeling of safety and privacy in an elevator Well our main character Portia did just that, except as she was adjusting her stockings to her garter belt, the doors suddenly opened and in came the sexiest, most emboldened, hunkiest Texan cowboy you can imagine You step into the elevator and notice as the doors close that your stockings need adjusting, so you think you are safe to lift your skirt and proceed to adjust them How many of us have done this Come on Be honest We all have There is a feeling of safety and privacy in an elevator Well our main character Portia did just that, except as she was adjusting her stockings to her garter belt, the doors suddenly opened and in came the sexiest, most emboldened, hunkiest Texan cowboy you can imagine After the obvious embarrassing moment, Portia and Jackson just felt the chemistry and the rest was history as they say.This is a rather interesting book dealing with the courage to live life, finding your place amongst the rest of the world, and pursuing your dreams There are different versions of this dilemma being too accommodating with your parents and letting them dictate what you will do with your life being afraid of new experiences and failing and most of all being afraid to dream of what you might want to do with your life.I found this book both enjoyable and exhilarating at times You will smile a lot as you begin to acquaint yourself with the Summerhill sisters I am looking forward to future installments in this series by Kate Perry

    Kate Perry is professional writer who knows how to craft a well structured story Lost In Love is a tight romance that delivers on all faucets Perry has a vast library of her work as evidence This is my first venture with a Perry book and I wasn t disappointed Lost In Love is the second book in her new Summerhill series Each book follows the lives of each Summerhill sister as well as a side couple The Summerhill sister we follow is Portia Summerhill She s a self described introvert She ha Kate Perry is professional writer who knows how to craft a well structured story Lost In Love is a tight romance that delivers on all faucets Perry has a vast library of her work as evidence This is my first venture with a Perry book and I wasn t disappointed Lost In Love is the second book in her new Summerhill series Each book follows the lives of each Summerhill sister as well as a side couple The Summerhill sister we follow is Portia Summerhill She s a self described introvert She has no real working work experience except for the vast knowledge of her families pedigreed history and it s valuables Lost In Love is told in third person from four different points of view You meet Portia first, then Jackson Waite, her love interest He s a rich hotelier who comes to London to oversee the renovation and completion of his company s newest resort The resort is the former estate of the Summerhill family and one Portia had dreamed of living out her days except her father squandered his wealth and sold the estate before he died, never telling his family Jackson and Portia meet in a very funny and love hate way The sparks fly like they should and you know their destined What Perry does well is show an enduring romantic relationship while still drawing the reader into to the external and inner conflicts of the characters Jackson is cocky and self assured Portia is feisty but thinks she s timid They have the perfect push and pull relationship throughout the book The other couple portrayed in the book, which I may have wanted to readabout, was Meredith and Quinn Both Meredith and Quinn work for Jackson s company Quinn is the brains and brawn behind the operation while Meredith also works close to the higher ups and happens to be Jackson s ex fiance I loved Quinn s self assurance, just like Jackson, but Quinn wasdominating He knew what he wanted and he wasn t pulling any punches He wants Meredith and nothing was going to stop him With Quinn you get the typical Alpha male many reader clamour for Meredith needed the dominance in order to pull her out out of herself and I think Perry wrote that quite well Dare I say that I would love to read a novella of their romance next Lost In Love is a very sexy romance with a dash of drama I don t think anyone would be disappointed reading what Perry has in store for this series It s interesting, hot, and a good book to curl up with

    Same formula as the previous books, different characters However, there are a lot of other storylines that happen here as well.So this one s about Portia, who is encouraged to secure a position at the Museum of British Peerage by her mother, since P knows so much about Summerhill history But the jerk that runs the MBP will only give her a job to curate the Summerhill collection if she ll handover the Summerhill Tiara which was last located at her beloved Suncrest Manor which was sold by her Same formula as the previous books, different characters However, there are a lot of other storylines that happen here as well.So this one s about Portia, who is encouraged to secure a position at the Museum of British Peerage by her mother, since P knows so much about Summerhill history But the jerk that runs the MBP will only give her a job to curate the Summerhill collection if she ll handover the Summerhill Tiara which was last located at her beloved Suncrest Manor which was sold by her late father to a hotel developer.Jackson is the CEO of the hotel development group he doesn t want to run it but is forced to by his father, and in fact the day to day ops are handled by Quinn, who the secondary story involves Portia seeks out J to get the tiara back and ends up sorting and curating the antiques that had been removed from Suncrest to make way for the renovations J s dad also wants him to get back together with an ex fiance, Meredith, who is also the interior design person for the company However, Quinn s clearly interested in helping Meredith accomplish her bucket list, but no one knows that the reason she broke it off with J is because she wasn t in love with him and she was diagnosed with breast cancer.We also meet Imogen, the Summerhill sister and actress, who is hiding out after a jerk of a boyfriend released a sex tape of them to boost his own brand Viola is in the process of divorcing her cheating husband and dealing with her sulky 14 yr old daughter Luca the race car driver friend of Nick, Rosalind s fiance has inserted himself into the lives of the Summerhill women because he s interested in Beatrice And something s up with Lady Jacs, but no one knows what yet.The P J storyline was kinda boring the Q M relationship was wayintriquing and romantic.And one day I d like to have my own orangery in my home

    So, the description of the book just mentions about Portia and Jackson but forgets to mention about Meredith Jack s ex Fiance and Quinn Jack s friend and coworker When I was first reading this book and realized that there wasthen Jack and Portia s POV it lost me a bit This has two story lines interwoven into one Portia doesn t have much skills but she knows her families history and wants to be able to get a job in Museum Problem is the director of the place won t consider her reque So, the description of the book just mentions about Portia and Jackson but forgets to mention about Meredith Jack s ex Fiance and Quinn Jack s friend and coworker When I was first reading this book and realized that there wasthen Jack and Portia s POV it lost me a bit This has two story lines interwoven into one Portia doesn t have much skills but she knows her families history and wants to be able to get a job in Museum Problem is the director of the place won t consider her request unless she hands over her families heirloom tiara as a part of the museum In order for her to get it she must offer her services to Jack so she can get the tiara and she can work for him until she gets it Little did they know they would fall for one another.Meredith has a secret she couldn t tell Jack and she refuses to live her life with a man she doesnt love Now she had hopes for the future and makes a bucket list When Quinn walks into her office and takes a peek at the list he wants to help her especially to help her out with that last thing on the list Want to know what it was Read the book I thought the book was interesting, although for me it dragged a bit I wished there wasdrama I guess, but that s OK I think I m getting used too having books over do it with the drama When I was reading this book it I liked how it was two story lines that meshed together without being too much I liked that I got the point of views of all four characters even if i was a bit confused at first Overall I did enjoy this book 4 of 5 Stars

    You step into the elevator and notice as the doors close that your stockings need adjusting, so you think you are safe to lift your skirt and proceed to adjust them How many of us have done this Come on Be honest We all have There is a feeling of safety and privacy in an elevator Well our main character Portia did just that, except as she was adjusting her stockings to her garter belt, the doors suddenly opened and in came the sexiest, most emboldened, hunkiest Texan cowboy you can imagine You step into the elevator and notice as the doors close that your stockings need adjusting, so you think you are safe to lift your skirt and proceed to adjust them How many of us have done this Come on Be honest We all have There is a feeling of safety and privacy in an elevator Well our main character Portia did just that, except as she was adjusting her stockings to her garter belt, the doors suddenly opened and in came the sexiest, most emboldened, hunkiest Texan cowboy you can imagine After the obvious embarrassing moment, Portia and Jackson just felt the chemistry and the rest was history as they say.This is a rather interesting book dealing with the courage to live life, finding your place amongst the rest of the world, and pursuing your dreams There are different versions of this dilemma being too accommodating with your parents and letting them dictate what you will do with your life being afraid of new experiences and failing and most of all being afraid to dream of what you might want to do with your life.I found this book both enjoyable and exhilarating at times You will smile a lot as you begin to acquaint yourself with the Summerhill sisters I am looking forward to future installments in this series by Kate Perry
