When Anna Gordon imagined her future, she didn’t think she’d be living in her hometown, managing the Value Lodge. But, that’s just where she finds herself in Melody Carlson’s most recent book, Once Upon a Summertime: A New York City Romance. When Anna runs into her High School friend, and she offers to forward her resume to a friend who is opening a boutique hotel in NYC, she jumps at the chance. Soon she finds herself managing the maids, with her childhood crush, Sean, working as the manager of the hotel! This sets up a perfect opportunity for the two of them to get to know one another better while learning about the new city they live in.
Since I really like visiting New York City, I enjoyed reading this book and hearing about the places they were visiting. Also, I really liked the main characters and their work ethic. Although I didn’t know much about a hospitality career before reading this book, I found myself wanting to read more books about it as the book made me think about all of the different aspects that go into running a hotel. I cannot wait to read more books in this series.
