Once Upon a Summertime


She’s looking for her big break. She never imagined it would depend on a blast from her past.


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 young woman starting out her career.


Then, out of the blue, she gets the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance to reinvent herself and reinvigorate her career by moving to New York City. She applies for a management position at the stylish new Rothsberg hotel. But the city is full of surprises—not the least of which is discovering that Sean O’Neil, a once-upon-a-time crush, has applied for the very same position.


This sweetly romantic tale of dreams come true takes you through the storied streets of New York City—and into the depths of the human heart.
