Land of the Noonday Sun was that great. Right of the bat, this book begins with a very intriguing scenario, and then continues into more events that just suck you in. Then, we start getting attached to the characters and drawn into the mystery until we have no choice but to read read read to get to the ending. Needless to say, in this book, there was rarely a dull moment. Character Rundown: Cassandra: Cassie is a nice protag. She's serious, yet passionate, and a very real character that can most definitely be related to by a reader. I liked her. She made the best of what she had, though she was cautious, for good reasons. Chad: I liked Cassie, but I LOVED Chad. I enjoyed reading from his point of view the most. Carmen DeSousa gave us yet another southern gentleman that I couldn't help but love. While Chad was a super amazing southern gentleman, he ws by no means perfect. He said not-the-best things. He did not-the-best things. But he made up for all of it a hundred times over. This guy is seriously amazing. Other Characters: Tom--I like Tom. A lot. That guy...he's a good guy. Michelle--that girl is all kinds of crazy. Sorry, but it's true. Brandy--there's more to her than meets the eye, and that was ocol to find out. The plot. The plot was fast-paced and utterly captivating. Not something I got bored while reading, that's for sure. The sweetness. I already mentioned that Chad is a southern gentleman. Which means that there was of course an abundence of sweet, tummy-tingling moments. Cassie and Chad's relationship may not have been perfect, but it was beautiful. The ending. These characters got the wonderful ending they deserve. Plus, it wasn't an ending that made me want to slap people! Yay! Overall, if you thought She Belongs to Me was good, you'll be blown away by Land of the Noonday Sun. And if you haven't read either of them...do it.

    Author Carmen DeSousa has written another emotional & suspenseful story about family, love, betrayal and forgiveness that captured my attention from the beginning and I could not stop reading. The hero and heroine, Chad and Cassie both suffered tragedy when they were young. Now as adults, they meet for the first time and must work and live together for at least 6 months due to circumstances beyond their control. Cassie learns that life doesn't always pan out as planned personally and career-wise Author Carmen DeSousa has written another emotional & suspenseful story about family, love, betrayal and forgiveness that captured my attention from the beginning and I could not stop reading. The hero and heroine, Chad and Cassie both suffered tragedy when they were young. Now as adults, they meet for the first time and must work and live together for at least 6 months due to circumstances beyond their control. Cassie learns that life doesn't always pan out as planned personally and career-wise as she tries to live a "simpler" life in North Carolina than her upper-class upbringing. Chad must learn to deal with his insecurities and jealousy if he wants to have a lasting relationship. Both rely on their religious beliefs to get them through the good and bad times. Tension in the relationship comes in the form of Chad's former girlfriend, Michelle, who's determined to win him back and his best friend, Tom, who shows interest in Cassie. A suspenseful twist and a special cameo appearance adds to the thrill of this story. The characters were well developed and I found myself emotionally attached to Chad and Cassie. I found myself crying when they experienced tragedy and smiling when they fell in love. The author did a great job conveying their emotions and it felt so true-to-life. I'm looking foward to reading the next book by this wonderful author.

    Ordinarily I don't read much romance. But since I am getting into a co-write with a friend who is a romance buff I thought I should brush up on the genre, so I didn't feel so out of water. This was definitely a perfect first read for me in this genre. The built tension between the Main Characters was perfection. And even though I saw the twist coming and even figured out who before it was time, it was well worth the read.

    What I liked about this book was that it wasn't the usual mystery, romance or suspense. It had all three but didn't follow expectations. I liked and cared about the characters. Some of Chad's "issues" kept the tension going on whether this couple would make it or not, and then they are tested beyond their limits. A great read!

    When I first started reading Land of the Noonday Sun I was a little confused, but intrigued. I knew it would be a romance novel, but it started with two broken families and I couldn't figure out which parent the story would be about. Turns out I was a little off the mark. I turned the page and realized it wasn't about the adults of the broken homes, it was about the children, now grown. Skipping forward quite a few years, we are introduced to Cassandra, a law graduate. When her life is turned up When I first started reading Land of the Noonday Sun I was a little confused, but intrigued. I knew it would be a romance novel, but it started with two broken families and I couldn't figure out which parent the story would be about. Turns out I was a little off the mark. I turned the page and realized it wasn't about the adults of the broken homes, it was about the children, now grown. Skipping forward quite a few years, we are introduced to Cassandra, a law graduate. When her life is turned upside down, providential care seems to intervene and a new door is opened for her. Land of the Noonday Sun pulled me in with the improbable and whirlwind romance that had me uttering all kinds of awes and laughs as Chad wooed Cassandra. It also had me groaning, muttering under my breath, and feeling the character's frustration when Chad's past comes back to haunt him (and I mean that in the best way). Chad is a protective, charming, sweep you off your feet kind of guy that isn't afraid to follow his feelings, especially when it comes to Cassandra. As the reader it's hard not to fall in love with him right along with Cassie. Carmen DeSousa brought the suspense in and just the right point in the book. Just when I was feeling a happily ever after, BAM, it hit me. And it took off at lightning speed. I was hurting for Chad, after having gone through so much in life he deserved a happy ending, and he was being faced with more trials. I won't give away the conclusion, but it was fit the modern-day fairy tale that it is. Occasionally, the dialogue comes off as a bit unnatural and overly formal. At first, I brushed it off as in character with Cassandra's dad, and that it had rubbed off on her. However, sometimes Chad's dialogue was too formal for his character and it didn't ring true. But, since it only pops up occasionally, I feel it's more an oversight than an issue with the story, and it certainly didn't ruin the experience for me. The christian theme in this book is a lot stronger than it was in Carmen's debut novel. We see characters bringing up Christianity in discussion of moral dilemmas and they often turn to prayer when they are faced with problems. However, Carmen does not claim to have written a christian novel. Her characters do hold to christian beliefs, but there is no underlying message or preaching of the gospel, faith is just a part of their life. And the ending... well let's just say that the twist is gonna leave you sitting in your chair, jaw on the floor, wondering if a semi truck just hit you. Okay, maybe not that painful, but definitely that surprising and juicy. I'm giving Land of the Noonday Sun four out of five stars. I enjoyed the story, the plot was well timed and kept me hooked, the beginning was a nice little twist to bring me some backdrop, and the ending was fantastic, not to mention the characters are very real with real life flaws. However, the overly formal dialogue that makes its way in from time to time did bring it down a star. But, no book is perfect and I highly recommend this read. http://chrissteen.wordpress.com/2012/...

    I really enjoy Carmen’s books. She has such interesting characters that have such real emotions. In this story the hero falls in love with the heroine the first time he meets her. We don’t see that happen in real life all the time so it is refreshing to read that in a story. It allows the reader to be swept up in the love the hero and heroine have for one another. One of the things I liked about this story was the hero and heroin's openness with their faith. You don’t see this often in romantic I really enjoy Carmen’s books.

One of the things I liked about this story was the hero and heroin's openness with their faith. You don’t see this often in romantic suspense books, so it was a very nice part of the story! The hero and heroine talked freely about their faith and we saw how they leaned on God for support and thanked Him for the blessings they received. I thought Carmen did a great job setting up hero and heroine's lives before they met and during their first few months together. You really got to see what each of them dealt with in their childhood and how they found each other as adults. Carmen also did a wonderful job with the suspense portion of the book. She really made me think about “who did it.” She had me thinking it was several different people. The person I thought did it at first was correct; however, she also had me believing it was someone else up until the very end. It was hard to put down until I got to the end. This book has tragedy, romance, suspense, love, hope and faith! This story reminds us that we all have choices to make in life but that life is short so we should not waste time planning our exact future down to the detail, but make the most of the days you have with your loved ones.

    I loved this one. I think it has a lot to do with the characters. Carmen DeSousa may be incapable of writing a hero that doesn't make me melt. Chad is so sweet. He is not without flaws, but who is? He and Cassie have both had a rough time in the past, but find one another under rather unusual circumstances. And then, just when everything is going great...well, I don't want to ruin it. But there is suspense as well and it will have you turning pages to find out what will happen next.

    Land of the Noonday Sun is not the type of book I normally read, but I decided to give it a try after meeting the author on Twitter. And, I’m glad I did. It was a well-written, lovely Christian based/romance/suspense YA novel with interesting characters and a storyline that comes to a feel-good, dramatic conclusion. Good for you, Carmen DeSousa! Five stars!

I was quite excited to see a novel set in the small community where I grew up and where my parents still live. I really wanted to like the story, but there were some issues that I just couldn't overlook. Here's a list: 1. Asheville is a secondary setting in the story. I love Asheville; I'm a graduate of UNCA.

The author consistently misspells it as "Ashville." Now, I wouldn't have an issue if the author were creating a fictional location in the NC mountains, but if you're going to use one of the state's most popular cities, spell it correctly. 2. The author refers to the lake as Lake Nantahala. If you spend any time in that community, you know it's Nantahala Lake. Little inaccuracies like this won't be noticed by people who are unfamiliar with the area, but I expect authors to be as accurate as possible about real places. It isn't like this is an imaginary lake. If she had created a fictional lake, she could call it whatever she wanted. 3. Chad has lived in Nantahala for several years. At one point he says that someone was just "down the street." No one living in Nantahala would use that phrase. Nantahala doesn't have streets. A resident would say "down the road." 4. The author uses phrases like "could care less" and "through in through" when she should write "couldn't care less" and "through and through." The rest of the list contains plot spoilers. You've been warned. (view spoiler)[ 5. Cassandra and Chad meet, fall in love, and are married in under a week. Really? It was difficult to suspend disbelief there. 6. The word "abdominals" is not romantic. I'll let you draw your own conclusions about when the author used it. 7. Chad was "perturbed" that his wife's sonogram to find out the baby's gender was on the same day as a rafting trip on the Cheoah River. Seriously? What a jerk. Your wife and child are more important than playing in the water even if the river is only open to rafting sixteen days a year. 8. The police detective investigating the disappearance lives in Asheville, but questions Chad in Bryson City. It isn't impossible that someone would live in Buncombe County and work in Bryson City, but it is unlikely. It would make for a bit of a commute. (hide spoiler)]

And in my opinion, 5 Price Publishing could benefit from spending as much energy on editing as they do on making their story lines engross their readers. I kept wanting to know what was going to happen to Cassie, and whether the couple were going to get their happily ever after. As a bonus, Jaynee and Jordan from She Belongs To Me make a surprise appearance. It's a wonderful, light-hearted but sometimes gut-wrenching book that I would heartily recommend to anyone.

    I've read several other books by this author and was more than happy to receive a free copy of this one (not in exchange for a review, but I'm giving one anyway.) The story starts out with two characters, both with troubled pasts. Although they aren't aware of it, the two have more in common then they'd think. They meet under not necessarily pleasant circumstances and fall into a fast, head-over heels romance. It was sweet, fun and even though quick, had a nice pace.

But this is only the beginning of their story as it slowly brings both into more of a thriller situation. This was a relaxing read. It's well written, the characters interesting and compelling and the plot, in general, moves along nicely. I had no problem diving into the rustic world and enjoyed each character's viewpoint as they made their way through the romance and beyond. There were a few spots in the middle which seemed to drag a little, but after the scenes in Los Vegas, the story picked up again with a very different atmosphere and feel. I really enjoyed the change of pace and tension. All in all, this is a wonderful read for those chilly nights, and I believe romance suspense fans will enjoy cuddling up with this book and being taken away into the Land of Noonday Sun.

    I am loving this series. This is the third book I've read in the series. I started with She Belongs to Me, then Split Decisions, and have just finished Land of the Noonday Sun. I have done nothing but read for three days - three books in as many days! Im usually very particular with my house but my bed is unmade, the dishes are piling up, washing needs to be done. If my husband wasn't cooking no one would be eating. I'm rectifying all this before I start When Noonday Ends as I know once I start I am loving this series.

    More Romance Than Suspense It took off slow, spending what I thought too much time (3/4 of the book) introducing Chad & Cassie and their romance and then bam - all of a sudden foul play. There was no build up to the suspense. Although, the actual culprit did catch me by surprise. I think mainly because there was less detail in the plot at this point. It was mainly focused on Chad's point of view and not a whole lot on how Cassie was going thru. It almost seemed like two separate stories thrown to More Romance Than Suspense It took off slow, spending what I thought too much time (3/4 of the book) introducing Chad & Cassie and their romance and then bam - all of a sudden foul play.

    excellent story A great story of life, love and faith. Some things are not always what they seem. Just when you are comfortable in the story you get a twist. And wow, is it a twist. It had me guessing wrong up until the end. I literally could not put it down and read it in a single sitting. Bravo to Ms. deSousa. I gave already purchased the sequel, but I think that I will wait a day so I can sleep first.

    As I read the book, I didn't think it measured up to She Belongs to Me. However, she did a really good job in making me think who the bad guy/gal was. I wonder why the writer is always into quick marriages without giving the characters enough time to know each other and also the female character is always in danger when not in her home state, but that is Carmen for you and she is a great author. I gave her five stars because she did a good job of fooling me ;) As I read the book, I didn't think it measured up to She Belongs to Me.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It was actually a rather strange book. A predictable romance...except for the Christianity interspersed with the sex. I was wondering about the target audience...it must be rather narrow...Christians who read housewife porn....hmmm. The plot holes were huge. Spend six months held hostage eating peanut butter sandwiches, and then give birth to a healthy baby????

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story that takes place in NC. It has it all...heartaches of different degrees, love to the point of destruction. Land of the Noonday Sun shows how you can over come the very worst that can happen, if you seek God's help. This is a book for all ages. Oh, I do need to mention...there is a real twist you will not see coming. Well done. I thoroughly enjoyed this story that takes place in NC.

    Very hard on the heart This book was a real suspenseful read and a tearjerker to boot. It all works out in the end, now to read Tom's story. Very hard on the heart This book was a real suspenseful read and a tearjerker to boot. It all works out in the end, now to read Tom's story.

    Okay, just not my fav. It didn't keep me interested. Okay, just not my fav. It didn't keep me interested.

    I enjoyed this book, but it was a slow start. Persevere and the story develops!
