Once Upon a Summertime by Melody Carlson

About the Book
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 woman whose childhood was anything but stable. Out of the blue, she gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to reinvent herself by moving to New York City, where she hopes for a management position at a stylish new boutique hotel. The big city is full of surprises--not the least of which is Sean O'Neil. Her childhood crush has applied for the very same position!

Sweet, romantic, and endlessly entertaining, this romp through the storied streets of New York City will enchant readers. Melody Carlson has created characters so charming that readers will long to meet them in the lobby of the stunning Rothsberg Hotel.

My Thoughts
This was a light read that I enjoyed and finished in a afternoon. Sean and Anna were great characters and though their romance moved a bit fast it was sweet. And it helped that they had known each other when they were younger. It was fun to get a look into the inner workings of getting a hotel up and running. I also loved experiencing New York through the characters eyes. The ending was a bit abrupt and things worked out a little too conveniently but all in all it was quick, fun summer read that I had fun reading!
