Sometimes it Rains in California by Jennifer Strom

The Plot:

Dr. Hubbard seems to have everything going for him, success in his job and moderate fame, his choice of any woman he wants, and undeniable wealth. To those around him, he seems nearly perfect and untouched by anything. Then on an ordinary Tuesday evening a nervous ER intern corners him with a desperate plea to help save a young woman's life. Almost immediately he realizes that the woman holds a connection to a secret from his past that he’s carried with him for years. As she remains unaware of the poignant way their lives are intertwined, Dr. Hubbard makes it his mission to keep her in his life until he can come to terms with how to handle the reality of what she represents. What begins as an unwillingness to let go of old memories and redeem past mistakes, soon turns into an intricate web of deception that forces Dr. Hubbard to make a choice. He can reveal the truth about their connection and face the anger and heartache that might come with that revelation or let her silently move on and maybe lose his only chance for reconciliation and redemption.

About the Author:

Jennifer has always been drawn to a good story and loves telling one as much as reading one. After ten-plus years writing in various positions in corporate America, she left to stay home with her children and follow her true passion of writing fiction.

She lives with her husband, children, three cats and a dog in Atlanta, Georgia.


Sometimes it Rains in California is the story of a man who did something terrible in high school and spent the rest of his life trying to atone for it. But when Dr. Hubbard saves the life a young woman from his past, he realizes he has to choose—expose his mistake and relive the past, or let the only woman he ever loved slip away—again.

I wasn’t sure how I felt about Dr. Hubbard. He pretty much lied his way through the book, but he did so out of fear. On top of that, this book wasn’t very well edited. It’s full of mis-matched tenses and misused words. It kept me engaged enough to read all the way through, so I am giving it three roses, but I wouldn’t suggest going out of one’s way to read it.
