Under a Summer Sky by Melody Carlson REVIEW

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 her childhood friends—who also happen to be brothers—vying for her attention. With the backdrop of a gorgeous 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 you to spend the summer surrounded by splendor . . . and tantalizing possibilities.


This is the perfect, light romance to bring in the summer time feels. It's set in a beautiful backdrop, seen from the eyes of an artist, which helps you appreciate the beauty that Savannah showcases. I loved the different depths of history among the characters and even bringing some sibling rivalry into the mix. When your childhood crush becomes single again, but his younger brother has also grown up rather nicely, where does your heart lead you? Under a Summer Sky was such a sweet, light-hearted romance that the ending had me choked up a bit at how beautifully everything fell into place. It is refreshing to read such a pure and spirited book that focuses more on the possibilities of life and love than the hurt and drama of a character's past the other books sometimes dwell on. This is the perfect book to escape into and put a smile on your face. Under a Summer Sky was charming, entertaining, and effervescent. It held a bit of suspense, some stressful situations and encounters, and even a "Vampira."
