Heartwarming Savannah romance

summer skyNot typically a reader of romance novels, particularly if there isn’t some sort of mystery or suspense story to go along with it, I’m not sure why I chose to read “Under a Summer Sky” by Melody Carlson, other than the fact that I like Carlson’s work and it takes place in Savannah, one of my favorite cities.  It didn’t take long to dive into Carlson’s summer romance story.  Nicole Anderson is a high school art teacher looking forward to a relaxing summer in Savannah, house-sitting and managing an art gallery for a family friend.

Instead of the relaxing summer she imagined, she finds she must deal with a difficult employee, a runaway teenager and two brothers vying for her affection.  But, in Savannah, between the historical and incredible architecture and ghost stories, anything, even romance, can happen.

Love, love, love.  I love reading stories about places I’ve been.  Carlson’s descriptions were wonderful and her story was appealing.  Nicole’s personality and charm was just enough to make me want to meet her in real life.  She was compassionate and wise and she had a way of bringing people together in spite of themselves.  I absolutely loved this story and wish it never had to end.  It made me yearn to visit Savannah again.
