Review: Suddenly One Summer by Julie James

Julie James writes it, we read it, we love it- - rinse, lather, repeat. This time around we take an attractive journalist, add one snarky, kick ass family lawyer, multiply by their complicated pasts and a convenient "my sister needs your help, so let’s- grudgingly- work together” story line,  (and subtract a 'cavalcade' of misunderstood female companion sightings) = and you've got your next best read.

Read an except: here

Ford Dixon can get to the bottom of any story for his numerous investigative pieces for the local newspaper. His instinct bodes well professionally, but sometimes falls short outside of the newsroom - especially when Victoria Slade enters his life (and the apartment next door). 

Slade, a highly successful divorce lawyer, has seen it all. The trials of life have helped mold Victoria into the woman she is today. She’s the always on-it, semi-compulsive, love-cynic wunderkind that clients love as much as opposing counsel loathes. A traumatic episode sets her down a path of losing that hard-won control and it’s through resilience and some well-meaning prodding by her pesky-cute (new word) neighbor that she’ll begin to do the ground work needed to get to the root of her issues.

And pesky-cute neighbor guy…the one with penis pop parties with brunettes at night and mysterious blondes saying they loves him in the A.M. --well, he has his own misguided philosophies and views on love to reevaluate.  

 These two are perfectly imperfect for one another, and while working towards a mutual goal, they'll recognize that fact profoundly- or risk devastating the other in resisting.

Watch Poldark on PBS this Sunday, 6/21!

"The infamous, swashbuckling hero is back! Ross Poldark returns in a new take on a beloved story. Poldark premieres Sunday, June 21 at 9/8c on MASTERPIECE on PBS. #PoldarkPBS"

You guys know how much I love period pieces- and this one looks like it'll be my new obsession ! New appointment TV for Sundays (Thank God- HBO devastated me with GoT + Silicon Valley finales- I am going to need something to fill the void!)

Check out the trailer below: 

More about the series: 
Aidan Turner (The Hobbit) stars as Captain Ross Poldark in a gorgeous love story set in windswept Cornwall in the late 1700s. Returning from war, the dashing captain faces financial ruin, romantic betrayal, and a golden opportunity that only he sees. Eleanor Tomlinson (Death Comes to Pemberley) costars as the fiery beauty Demelza. A remake of the 1970s series that helped launch MASTERPIECE, the glorious new Poldark was a runaway hit in the UK and garnered reviews such as the following: “A beautifully filmed Sunday night romp,” said The Times (London), and from the Guardian: “You need look no further for your next guilty pleasure.”

Will you be watching? Make sure to live tweet with #PoldarkPBS and let's fan out together!
