Under a Summer Sky by Melody Carlson

Under a Summer Sky by Melody Carlson

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:
I really love books by Melody Carlson. I usually have high recommendations, but I struggled to connect with this book. The characters did not grab me and I felt that the storyline was unrealistic. I wasn't in love with the Ghost situations at the museum and I just couldn't get into the book, nor stay in the book. I think this book may speak to other readers, but it wasn't my cup of tea. I do recommend many of Melody Carlson's books, especially The Christmas Joy Ride  but this wasn't it for me. I give this book 3/5 stars. Thank you to the publisher for providing me a complimentary copy. All reviews and opinions are my own.
