Once Upon A Summertime by Melody Carlson-- A Review
She's looking for her big break. She never imagined it would depend on a blast from her past.
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 sweetly romantic tale of dreams come true takes you through the storied streets of New York City--and into the depths of the human heart
It can be purchased at the folowing retailers as well as many others:

My Thoughts: I very much enjoyed reading this book. It's fun, sweet and light hearted. I enjoyed the characters of Anna and Sean, but I didn't care much for Anna's friend Marley. She was just a little too bossy for me. The writing was very good and the story line was done well. This is a quick and fun read. Definitely a great pick for a summer read on the beach. I also enjoyed all the sights of New York City written about in the book. I almost felt like I was there. Altogether a really good read that I would recommend to others.
I received this book through Revell (a Baker Publishing Group) in exchange for my honest review. A positive review was not required.
