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 promises 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 Nicole's close childhood friends--who also happen to be brothers--vying for her attention.
With a backdrop of a beautiful historical city, incredible architecture, and even an alleged ghost or two, combined with the opportunity for romance . . . anything can happen!
Bestselling and award-winning author Melody Carlson invites readers to spend the summer surrounded by beauty and tantalizing possibilities for the future.
My thoughts: UNDER A SUMMER SKY is the third book in Ms. Carlson's romance series Follow Your Heart. This one is set in Savannah, Georgia. At first I thought Nicole had no backbone, but as the story unfolded she started to develop one. I really appreciated that. Alex's young daughter, Bernie, made a nice addition to the story, and there is a love - triangle, with both Alex and Ryan vying for her affections! I wanted Nicole to choose the one I was rooting for!
There is some drinking -- beer and wine -- for those who don't approve of it and don't want to read about it, and the faith message is absolutely nonexistent, but otherwise the story is sweet, clean, and nothing objectionable for those who like squeaky clean romances without a spiritual message.
I think this was absolutely my favorite book of the three in the series Once Upon a Summertime, and All Summer Long and now Under a Summer Sky. All three are about girls being sent out of their comfort zones, spreading their wings, and discovering themselves and love in the process. I hope there will be a fourth book in this series. If you like sweet romances, don't miss UNDER A SUMMER SKY. A can't fail summertime romance set in the deep south. I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
