Melody Carlson is one of my favorite authors. I have never been disappointed by her writing and I, once again was happy to be reading her works.
In Once Upon a Summertime, Carlson takes the reader behind the doors of what is needed to run a hotel in New York City. This is where Anna ends up after a different life as a small-town girl. Here the world of the Big Apple takes shape under the descriptive words of Melody Carlson, as seen by the main character. Her life, including a relationship, are all developed nicely. However, I do not know if it was because I did not want the book to end or some other factor, but the ending happened too quickly.
This is a great read for those that like developed characters and descriptions that place them in the center of things.
I received this book from Baker Publishing Group, Revell and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
