Review: Under a Summer Sky by Melody Carlson

To Purchase

She's anticipating a quiet summer surrounded by beauty She never expected a fresh chance at love.

High school art teacher Nicole Anderson is looking forward to a relaxing summer in Savannah, house-sitting and managing an art gallery for a family friend. The house is luxurious in a way that only old money could make it, and the gallery promising interesting days in a gorgeous setting. Yet it isn't long before her ideal summer turns into more than she bargained for: a snooty gallery employee who's determined to force her out, a displaced adolescent roosting in the attic, and two of her childhood friends -- who also happen to be brothers -- vying for her attention.

With the backdrop of a gorgeous historical city, incredible architecture, and even an alleged ghost or two, combined with the opportunity for romance. . . anything can happen!

My Thoughts:

Under a Summer Sky was a breezy little romance that takes Nicole Anderson from the comforts of her Seattle life to Savannah, Georgia for a memorable summer that will change her life. Nicole feels a bit stuck in her life; she is a teacher who has lost her touch, she is a woman closing in on 30 nursing a broken heart and dreams as well. Then an opportunity opens up for her to manage an art gallery for her mother’s longtime friend in Georgia. Not only will she get to manage the art gallery, but she will also have time to pick up her painting, and to top it all off, she gets to house-sit in a beautiful renovated mansion.

I knew I was going to enjoy this novel as it has a little bit of a love triangle. She gets to meet up with her once upon a time childhood crush Alex (who unfortunately is in the middle of a divorce), and his brother, Ryan (who was a bit nerdy and had a crush on her).  I knew things were going to get interesting. Throw in an assistant with the nickname Vampira, a house that goes bump in the night, or maybe its ghosts, and the deep, rich atmosphere of Savannah, Georgia itself and you have the makings of fun read.

This is a third in the series called Follow Your Heart and it is my favorite one. The stories are not linked to each other, just all about young women stepping out of their comfort zones to find and pursue new dreams and the romance that just seems to follow.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing. I was not required to post a positive review and all the views and opinions expressed are my own.
