    nice summer read

    When you look at the cover and you see the clear blue sky and it's as if you can feel the sun on your face, you hear the birds sing and you can smell the flowers. It seems like there is no care in the world, but you know that with this kind of books, the road to a happy end is often bumpy and winding. Here it's no different. After a game of attraction and rejection, a few misunderstandings and the much needed reconciliation, two people are reunited and live happily ever after. That's what I like about this genre. No matter how many obstacles, love always wins. A nice read where the coachee learns from the coach and vice versa.

    Great story with strong and interesting characters

    Great story. When Alicia meets her new client Jack she immediately hates him. However both characters have an interesting past so neither is quite what they seem. I love the challenges and changes in their dynamics. Great characters and you really want to find out what happens to them.

    A lovely read

    I enjoyed this novel – a first from this author for me, but probably not the last! Alicia is an executive coach, who is called upon to work with Jack Smith, CEO of Leo Components. She had a bad relationship experience a few years ago, and Jack seems to be exactly the same type of man – a typical ‘Jack the lad’. She decides not to work with him, to hand him over to a colleague, but has to deal with him herself for a short time, which includes a working weekend in the Lake District – One Summer Weekend. And so the story develops. The book is an easy and pleasant read, I can recommend it.

    Nice Beach Read!

    One Summer Weekend’s blurb says Alicia Marlowe’s life as an executive coach is well under control. Only not so much. I’d say her job was more a well-placed mask to hide the three-year-old emotional scars never far from her thoughts and her main motivation to keep people at arm’s length… especially men. Enter Jack Smith, a complete opposite of the stodgy, middle-aged male execs she’s used to coaching. Alicia did her homework. She researched Jack’s immediate background to get some insight into whom she’s dealing with. Finding his player persona played out in the media, Alicia decides she’ll need to set some ground rules and keep the contract completely professional so Mr. Smith knows there’s no chance of things becoming personal between them. Besides, Jack’s ‘reputation’ reminds Alicia of him and there’s no way she’s ever going down that road again. Whatever, Alicia. “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” I couldn’t help but feel sorry for Jack from the start. Swayed by media accounts, Alicia prejudged him and found him lacking…. and loathsome. But she gets taken down a peg or two. Her boss, Stuart, nailed it when he accused her of “gunning for this Smith guy before you’d even met him.” His words give her pause and add to her jumbled thoughts when she finds herself too close to Jack for her own good… and for an entire weekend. Alicia allows her guard to slip as she finds out Jack isn’t whom she believed him to be. He actually has a past more heartbreaking than Alicia’s and she realizes this. However, an appearance by him—Troy Randall Travers (how pretentious) mucks things up royally. Alicia attempts to exorcise her three-year-old demons while verbal sparring with Troy during a business conference, not realizing Jack has walked away. Only Alicia can fix this, but she has to decide IF she wants to and how to go about it. While I wanted to choke the life out of Alicia Marlowe during her first meeting with Jack and later after she overheard the conversation with Nick because… RUDENESS isn’t professional, it’s personal; I was cheering for her when, at last, she put her past behind her and took the initiative to reach out to Jack. Special props to Bill and Midge—Midge is simply too adorable! An enjoyable, quick romantic comedy with relatable characters, One Summer Weekend is an ideal beach read.

    A fabulous summer treat

    One Summer Weekend is great, feel-good book with characters you can't help but love and although it’s a shorter book than I would usually read, I did love it. The pacing was great and both plot and characters were well developed. I adored my afternoon spent with Jack and Alicia. Their initial meeting doesn’t go well. Alicia needs to remain professional and objective and Jack’s reputation as a womaniser precedes him, but he gets under her skin to the point she doesn’t want him as a client, but is persuaded to. As we get to know the two of them better, my initial concerns about not liking Alicia were quickly overcome. When Jack takes her to the Lake District, it is clear there is a great deal of chemistry between them. This book had everything – great characters, great locations and great plot. All in all – a lovely Summer Weekend treat! Before now, I hadn’t read any of Juliet’s previous books, but she has such a great way of writing, I have downloaded her past books and look forward to reading more of her in the future!
