Book Review: Once Upon a Summertime by Melody Carlson

One of the things I liked about this book is that I felt lots of women could relate to it.  Anna Gordon had big plans for herself in the hospitality industry, but it didn't quite pan out the way she had planned.  She's managing the Value Lodge in her hometown and believes she can make big changes to the lodge, but her plans don't quite turn out.  She sees herself managing a large hotel that is beautifully run.  Running the lodge is the farthest thing from that. When another opportunity presents itself she jumps at the chance, but it too isn't quite what she expected.  What I really enjoyed is how she takes what she has in the story and runs with it. In life we often have big dreams, but we don't quite get there.  I really enjoyed this book because it seemed so down to earth. The characters seemed very easy to relate to, like they could be your neighbors. 

** I received this book free for my honest review.
