Managing the Value Lodge in her hometown was not what Anna Gordon had in mind when she set out in the hospitality industry. But it's a safe choice for a woman whose childhood was anything but stable. Out of the blue, she gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to reinvent herself by moving to New York City, where she hopes for a management position at a stylish new boutique hotel. The big city is full of surprises--not the least of which is Sean O'Neil. Her childhood crush has applied for the very same position! Sweet, romantic, and endlessly entertaining, this romp through the storied streets of New York City will enchant readers. Melody Carlson has created characters so charming that readers will long to meet them in the lobby of the stunning Rothsberg Hotel.

This is a nice read and it takes you to New York city with all the great sites.
New York City is full of surprises for Anna. She did not expect to find that her childhood crush Sean O’Neil, has been appointed the new manager of The Rothsberg.

Anna’s journey is a summer of new beginnings, renewed hope, and romance in the heart of New York City.

This was an easy and quick read; it just wasn't very exciting, I guess. The setting is interesting and the author does a good job with the descriptions and story lines - it was just a little slow for me. Did appreciate that there was no foul language or sex in the book.

What a fun, lighthearted, joyful read! Anna the main character is described so well, you would think she was a friend of yours. Her exciting journey of moving to New York and being hired for a fancy boutique hotel is a fun premise for the story, but even better is following her as she becomes acquainted with New York City. Of course, the best part is the romance, which creates a unique problem, only to be solved in the best way!
