"Once Upon a Summertime," by Melody Carlson

"Once Upon a Summertime," by Melody Carlson
Managing the Value Lodge in her hometown was not what Anna Gordon had in mind when she set out in the hospitality industry. But it's a safe choice for a young woman starting out her career.

Then, out of the blue, she gets the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance to reinvent herself and reinvigorate her career by moving to New York City. She applies for a management position at a stylish new hotel, The Rothsberg. But the city is full of surprises--not the least of which is discovering that Sean O'Neil, a once-upon-a-time crush, has applied for the very same position. 


This is a fun upbeat book about a small town girl, who leaves for the big city to find her dream job and finds love along the way.  It's very realistic and a very believable story.  All the characters seem true to life and the addition of the air stewardesses is a nice touch.  The description and details of The Rothsberg, make the place come to life.

All in all a lovely book to read in an afternoon or two.

Stars out of 5 : 4, I probably won't remember this book in a couple of weeks, but I am glad I read this one.  This book is the first book in the "Follow Your Heart," series by Melody.  There is a sneak peek at the next one in the series at the back of this book and that will be released in the Summer of 2016.

  1. I have listened to one of her books...like you say about not remembering this, but enjoying it. That is how I felt about the one I listened to. I can see it being a good, light read.
