Series: Follow Your Heart, Book 3
Author: Melody Carlson
Publisher:  Revell

Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Fiction



She's anticipating a quiet summer surrounded by beauty. She never expected a fresh chance at love.

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.



Under a Summer Sky by Melody Carlson is very similar to the other books in the series, a light summer read that stands alone. It's charming in the fact that it brings readers on a trip, and provide a little comic relief with the fun-filled banter between the brothers, and with our main girl, Nicole. In this book, we journey to Savannah, Georgia, enjoying the lovely setting, and bringing us full on into summer mode.

The romance was light-hearted, yet I think it tailors to a specific audience and the subtle and not-so-subtle stereotypical references of southern Christian ladies can come off brash. However, it doesn't take away from the overall dynamic of the story, which really was sweet.
