Under a Summer Sky By Melody Carlson

About this book

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!

My Thoughts On This Book

Art teacher landed an amazing summer job at her mom’s friends art gallery, and taking care of their house while they took a summer trip. All was going well until the couple’s two sons decides to make a run for Nichole, trying to see which one could win her. The story gets very tense at times because of the two adult guys that acted like boys some of the times.

The historical setting with the beautiful scenes described by the author was amazing. I felt like I was in historic Georgia while reading the book. However, some parts of the book didn’t seem so real, especially with a young teacher actually taking over as manager of an art Gallery she knew nothing about. The house setting and just working at the gallery was pretty good, after all the families knew each other. The romance part of the story was very sweet. Very nice summer read, and I think this one is great for younger ladies to read!

I received this book from The publisher, Revell to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

 

 

About the Author

My husband Chris and I live in a cabin-style home next to the National Forest in the beautiful Cascade Mountain area of the Pacific Northwest. Our two grown sons and granddaughter live nearby and we try to see them as often as we can. We also have two �re-homed� pets to make life more interesting�our yellow Labrador retriever Audrey and a Maine coon cat named Harry.

 

My writing studio is in a separate building next to our courtyard (a garden area that�s off limits to the voracious deer). The window behind my desk looks out into the ponderosa pine forest, where I see deer, squirrels, rabbits, and an occasional raccoon. The other windows in my office overlook the courtyard which is frequented by numerous hummingbirds in the summertime�one August evening we counted nearly fifty of the little hummers.
