REVIEW: Sheryl Lister’s last Kimani Romance also marks the last book of The Hunters of Sacramento Series. Dr. Jeremy Hunter, tops in his field of medical robotics, is the last sibling of the Los Angeles Grays and the Sacramento Hunters to find his mate. It takes a trip to Madrid, Spain, to find her, but Professor Serita Edwards catches Jeremy’s attention at first glance. I like this couple. If I said it once, I’ll say it again, one reason that Sheryl Lister’s characters stand out is because of their occupations. This time, both the hero and heroine are engineers in the fascinating field of robotics. Kudos to this prolific author who involves her characters in some pretty nifty occupations.

Madrid marks the initial meeting of Jeremy and Serita where they are both presenters at an international conference on robotics. Madrid also marks the beginning of a relationship that follows them back to Sacramento where they engage in a new phase of their love journey. No spoilers, but you’re going to like their new relationship. If ever two people were meant to be together, Jeremy and Serita are that couple. The only hiccup in their relationship, comes with Serita meeting Jeremy’s family. I’ll just let that marinate, and you can see for yourself when you read the story. One scene that I particularly like is when Jeremy challenges Serita to a game of strip Jeopardy. That scene gives you a whole new perspective of the popular game show. However, in spite of the apparent compatibility of our couple, there is something that holds them back from saying those three little words to each other. You’ll discover it when you read the story.

The Grays and Hunters are reunited in this story, and it is great catching up with them, and their expanding families. The Epilogue presents the perfect HEA that is certain to leave you smiling. Kudos again to the author for including one of my favorite songs, Setembro by Quincy Jones.

I liked this story, and I recommend it for your reading pleasure.
DESIGNED BY LOVE is a winner.
