Summer Reads: Under a Summer Sky


Revell; 321 pages; $14.99; Amazon
Now available from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, is the Savannah-romance Under a Summer Sky, book three in the Follow Your Heart series, by Melody Carlson.

Under a Summer Sky centers on Nicole Anderson, a high school art teacher who agrees to manage an art galley in Savannah for the summer for an old friend, Vivian Graham. Taking a summer sabbatical wasn't exactly how Nicole was planning on spending her summer vacation, but thanks to her mother, she's now house-sitting a mansion, as well as running an art galley.

What sounds like a fun summer, becomes very stressful for Nicole after meeting one of the gallery's employee who wants her job as manager. Then there are the Graham brothers, old childhood friends who are now dying to get her attention. It seems this summer will be anything but ordinary for Nicole.


Final Thoughts:  While I've never had a chance two read the first two books in the series, I've read a few other titles by the author, which I did like, so I thought I would at least give Under a Summer Sky a chance.

The author wastes no time introducing the main character, Nicole, and setting up the main plot, which involves Nicole traveling to Savannah to house-sit for a friend, as well as running an art galley for the summer. Let's just say that there are way too many coincidences that occur for Nicole, which, for me, makes this story unbelievable.

Don't get me wrong, the novel is fast-paced, fun read, but I couldn't help rolling my eyes dozens of times while reading it.

Overall, Under a Summer Sky is nothing more than a summer fluff; good, but not great.
