Summer's Storm by Denise Domning
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Possibly not so good as Autumn's Flame, which was Book 4 in her series) - that having been said it was still a good read. Nice simple plot, gentle pace and sweet characters.
As you can see from the fact that I've read Book 4, and now this one, that it is possible to read the series out of order.
The Author's attention to historical details is first class, and she shows such care in the way she crafts the story.
I wish she also took as much care with ensuring there are no typographical/grammatical errors. Unfortunately, you can find a couple of errors, but taken as a whole they didn't distract from the actual overall feel of the piece. For anyone interested there's a comprehensive list of errors and bug bears on my actual Blog Post.

Beside her, Temric laughed aloud

48%: "Do you truly think he'll complain when the bishop names his widower?"
Within the context of the sentence it's the wrong word. Correct to:

For the following two I forgot to make a note of the percentage, but they were near the end of the book.
".... of its great pride by leaning into Temric's should as if to say the Master had been truly missed."
"Mye, I don't think Lindhurst will do them any harm ...."
Me, I don't think Lindhurst will do them any harm ....
