    The third book in the Lightning Strikes series by Barbara Freethy Danielle Monroe is back in Texas for her sister's wedding and while she is there she attends the dedication ceremony of a park There she meets Patrick Kane the son of the woman who the park is dedicated to When she loses her great grandmother's ring she goes back to the park to find it and rescues Patrick from a mugging that involved knives Patrick and Dani end up together seeking the truth about her father's and his mother's deaths Both died in plane crashes but years apartI enjoyed the series for the most part but I have to admit I got a little bored at times during this last book Normally I like books that investigate crimes but for some reason this one just got bogged down with all the details and different people involved etc Still I was interested in finding out how it ended and who the baddies were and all that jazz The story did pick up for me towards the end and I was almost sad when it was all over

    This was a well crafted complicated plot that left no stones unturned Excellent story that brought in characters from the first two books to give the series a defined arc While I rooted for Dani and Patrick their characters weren't as satisfying as Jake and Katherine in Book 2 It was still a satisfying read and I recommend it

    Summer Rain was a enjoyable third book in this suspenseful series I liked all the characters in play especially the main characters Dani and Patrick and how they met and connected through lightningThe author has done a wonderful joy of piecing the three stories together each book being centered upon one of the family members and how they were compelled to search for answers after the loss of their father in a plane crash Patrick was added to this story and linked to Dani through a similar loss in his life his mother who was killed in another plane crash Barbara Freethy created strong resilient characters who are not afraid to venture into the unknown in spite of danger at every turn This makes for some exciting and suspenseful readingI look forward to reading the next series involving one of the FBI characters that will spin off from this book I’m sure the author will have satisfying stories to tell that will keep this reader engaged

    My initial reaction was to give this book 3 stars because I was impatient to finish it But it had everything I normally like good continuous storyline without a lot of annoying side action some sex but not the kind where they're in a life or death situation and everything comes to a grinding halt while they spend 6 pages on it likeable characters interesting premise which means it was my mood and not the writing that was at fault And unlike some books I'm impatient with I didn't just skip to the end after the first 100 pages just to get it over with so that was also a good signal that it wasn't the book's faultI like Freethy's writing and would certainly read other books she's written
