Once Upon a Summertime by Melody Carlson

Thursday, June 11, 2015

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!

My thoughts:

This was a great book perfect for the summer! The Value Lodge reminded me of the little motel my grandparents owned when I was kid, I used to help my Gramma clean rooms and wait on customers.
When  Anna and Sean toured New York, I got a bird's eye view of New York City. 
The relationship between Anna and Sean progressed at a reasonable pace.
This book would be a great summer read for your tween or teen.
