Schyler Crandall returns to Heaven, Louisiana when her father has a heart attack to discover the family business in ruins. Schyler is strong, likable character and I enjoyed the love story. However, I thought that were a few too many subplots going on at once that detracted from the story.

I was so looking forward to hearing this audio book. I am not a fan of Dick Hill because his voice can be annoying. I definately didn't like the accent and voice of Schyler Crandall. Halfway through the first disk and I have given up. The voices are just to annoying for me to listen to 13 disks and 15 hours. I've "read" at least 200 audio books and I've never stopped one until now. Very, very disappointed. I wish there were another version with different readers.

Schyler Crandall left home six years ago when she found out her sister was pregnant with her fiance's baby. But when her father has a massive heart attack, she returns home to Belle Terre to find her family's business, Crandall Logging, on the edge of bankruptcy with a huge loan payment coming due. In order to save the business, Schyler must put her trust into Cash Boudreaux, a man who grew up on Belle Terre property but was never part of the family.

I think I waited about 20 years too long to read this book. What I might have liked in the late 80's or 90's doesn't appeal to me now. The heroine is somewhat likeable but has too many TSTL moments. She also has way too many blind spots when it comes to her family. Cash is alpha to the extreme. He broods, he drinks, and he has sex with every woman in the county. I didn't like that he was seeing other women when he was with Schyler. That was a big turn off.

There were far too many villains in this book. It got very hard to find someone to root for. But, I can still say that the story was still very readable and I wanted to see how it ended. I would call this book a stepping stone for Sandra Brown. My rating: 2.5 Stars.

My FAVORITE Sandra Brown book. I've read and re-read this book a few times. Ohhhhh, I just love that Cash Boudreaux! Yes, he is the typical romance "hero" of the mid/late '80's, but I can't help it, I just love him! ;-) I feel that all of the characters in this book are strong(whether good ones or bad ones) and they definitely add to the story. For me this is one of Sandra Brown's most entertaining books! Hope you enjoy it too! happy reading!

You can never go wrong with a Sandra Brown book. Good story, romance and a mystery. She holds your interest from beginning to end.

Slow Heat in Heaven is a rip-roaring tale that grabs the reader's attention on page 1 and doesn't let go until the book's end. Complex and vivid characters, family intrigue, and old scandals all make for the perfect romantic suspense read. --Lois Faye Dyer

For some reason Slow Heat in Heaven was a little too slow for me. It started slow and kept that same pace throughout the book. Not the usual Sandra Brown book.

This was a good book. Keeps you reading to see what happens next. Has danger in it, along with a hard, tough man who is our hero, Cash. It is set in the south where its hot and life is still a little prejudiced for the African Americans. Our heroine, Schyler, is a brave girl who had grown up where the story takes place but had moved away for 10 years to the city, NY I think, where life was much more up to date and moved at a faster pace, to escape a spiteful sibling and finance. She has come back because her adopted father is in the hospital suffering from a heart attack. She runs into the forbidden Cash who runs, unofficially, Schyler's family wood business. She tangles with the meanest man in the area and survives. She has a lot of spunk and grit. Good story, a must read. I think you will like it.

SLOW HEAT, SLOW PLOT
Thank goodness I didn't have to pay for this book. It was recommended and raved about so much I had to read it. I could not get into the dragging story line (I read five other books between beginning and finishing this one!) The hero is a pig. He readily admits to a long and varied sex life, especially among the bored wives of some of the town gentry. He is vulgar and trashy and uses the heroine whenever and wherever he feels like it. She is a spineless, mewling baby. She won't stand up for herself against him or her bitchy, rotten sister and brother-in-law. I doubt I will be reading any more Sandra Brown novels.

typical Sandra Brown mystery, full of tricks and twists. very suspenseful. Some creasing on the spine - this copy has been read several times, but is otherwise in good condition.
