Romance Review: Once Upon A Summertime by Melody Carlson
Melody Carlson writes a book with relatable characters and an exciting setting for "Once Upon A Summertime." Anna's search for a job and subsequent work to keep the job makes sense within the context of the current U.S. economy. By chance, she becomes the housekeeping manager for a new hotel in New York City. A company policy forces her to play safe when she hits it off with another manager, who grew up in the same town as her. They spend a few days sight seeing together, and by the end of the book (a few weeks later) they're ready for marriage. Surely there are better solutions than this. It's a quick and easy read, thoroughly enjoyable, but without much depth or character development. And Anna does not even meet the leading man until 100 pages in. But "Summertime" makes a nice read for those looking for light fairy tale romance.
