Once Upon a Summertime

Back of 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

A sweet, clean Hallmark-style summer read that would be great to take with you to the beach.  Once Upon a summertime takes a little time to get going but once I got into the plot it was a cute book.  Anna seemed like a sweet girl but almost a little to hung up about her hometown.  Sean was a great balance and seemed like the perfect, kind person anyone would like to meet.  I wish more had been written about some of the side characters, they just seemed to pop up randomly, and then as soon as the scene ended they were gone.  Even her grandmother seemed to have fallen into the same black hole once the book got rolling.  If you are looking for a simple summer read this is the book for you.

I was given this book free from Revell Publishing for my honest review.
