Gerri Hill's latest book, "The Rainbow Cedar," is reminiscent of her earlier novels, and that is a good thing.

I wasn't overly thrilled with her last two books--"The Cottage" and the Hunter sequel, "In the Name of the Father"--but this book has much going for it.

Jay meets Drew literally by accident in Austin, Texas. They are attracted to one another, but Jay's in the midst of an eight-year relationship, and Drew won't be the one to break up that relationship.

Jay's partner Katharine is a high-powered attorney, bucking to make partner and then strike out on her own. As a result of Katherine's ambition and workaholic ways, their relationship is on the rocks. And when a former lover of Katherine's comes in the picture, Jay can either stay and fight for what she has, or follow her heart.

My only dislike? Ah, the habit of authors ending their books too soon! That knocked one star off my rating.

A light read, a fun read, with enough sexual tension to keep you flipping to the next chapter.

Welcome back, Gerri! You've been missed.

The characters in "The Rainbow Cedar" are similar to those found in "Gulf Breeze". They banter, they tease, they titilate. They make you laugh out loud at times and then breathe a deep "ahhhh".

There is no lesfic writer out there, in my opinion, who can transition from adventure/mystery/cop story to romance as well as Hill and lucky for me I enjoy all types of lesfic and Gerri Hill has never disappointed me with any of her books.

When I read "The Rainbow Cedar" I was smiling from the moment Jay "bumps" into Drew early in the story through to the last page. And I admit I laughed out loud more than a few times along the way. And when I got to "the end" I felt like I had just hung out with a couple of really cool friends and had an exceptionally good time!

And if that isn't enough, Hill does an excellent job of exploring the conflict and human emotion Jay feels as she faces the ending of one part of her life and the possibility of a whole new chapter. I'd say more but I don't want to spoil the story for you.

"The Rainbow Cedar" is truly worth reading and if you loved Pat and Carly in "Gulf Breeze", you're sure to love this one too. So give it a read. You'll be glad you did.

Another great & fast read from Gerri Hill. This book had a great story line to follow, the way that Gerri described the chartacters you could picture them in your mind. I couldn't put this down, I finished it in less then 2 days and wanted the story to go on.

This book wasn't terrible. However, like many of Gerri Hill's more recent books, The Rainbow Cedar has recycled characters and story lines from previous books. A lot of Hill's books have become formulaic and unimaginative and feature characters that are a little annoying in their insistence on prolonging horrible relationships and indulging the abhorrent behavior of others. It goes on so long that I stop rooting for the characters and find myself getting angry with them. While entertaining, The Rainbow Cedar is a quick, simple read that lacks depth. Looking for the complex, dreamy characters present in Hill's first few novels, I was disappointed. For her next endeavor, I sincerely hope that Hill finds her inspiration and delivers the truly spectacular novel of which she is clearly capable.

One of my favorite authors. Gerri Hill has captured my attention again with her unique writing styles. What a great story.

This was the first Geri Hill book I've read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She creates characters and settings with a depth that made me feel and see the story.

A big fan of Gerri Hill's writing, this reader was a little disappointed in this particular book. It lacks full character development and has an anemic plot. That said, I am comparing this offering to Hill's other work when I give it 4 stars instead of 5. If I were rating it on its own, I might give it 4.5 stars.

My partner and I both read this one in the same week. Both of us had a similar, slightly-disappointed reaction to the story. It's not all gloom and doom. Jay is a wonderful character on the surface - I just wish she had been written more dimensionally. She is in a bad situation, but can't bring herself to move on. In some ways I can respect that she's reluctant to give up a committed relationship for a new flame. However, at some point I would respect her more for making the tough decisions and moving on.

Bottom Line - Not one of Hill's best, but still an enjoyable read.

Format: Paperback
As other reviewers have said -- Gerri is back with this book. I loved Hunter's Way and was disappointed with In the Name of Father. I expected much more from it than I got. The Cottage was just okay. Killing Room was suspenseful, but just didn't do it for me.

I loved the development of the characters and her structure of the story in Cedar. Drew and Jay actually getting to know each other so well prior to sex was fun and led to great sexual tension and flirting. OMG, Katherine was vile and don't we all know (shutter) at least one person as reprehensible and self-centered as her.

Agree also with an earlier reviewer -- it ended too soon. It should have gone back to Austin to address follow up (which had to happen) with Katherine.

Thanks, Gerri, looking forward to the next one which looks to be due out in the fall.
