A brief summary from Revell:
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!

My Thoughts:
It’s a teacher’s dream – summer break! And Nicole Anderson plans to take it easy in Seattle and perhaps send some time doing what she loves, painting. But when her mother’s friend contacts her about managing an art gallery in Savannah, Nicole finds herself on a jet plane to the South. Savannah is lovely with its Southern charm, to include two brothers Nicole knew when she was a kid. Soon Nicole finds herself in the middle of both brothers’ affections, and she’s not quite sure what to do: to pursue her long lost crush from childhood, or open her eyes to a hidden romance. Throw in a gothic employee, under-age teens who go on a drinking binge, and plentiful ghost tours; Nicole may need a break from her summer break!

Under the Summer Sky is a cute ending to Melody Carlson’s Follow Your Herat series. As cute as this novel was, I was put off by all the ghost tours/hunts/mentions in this book. Its just not something I’m into, and didn’t hold my interest. But, I did enjoy all the colorful artistic aspects, the endearing characters, cute plot. I also really like how Nicole chose to follow her heart in the end. Speaking of the end, I felt it was over a little too quickly, and I was left with quite a few questions. Overall, I think this is a solid read, especially when lounging around during this summer. Check out my review of the previous novel in this series, All Summer Long.

I was graciously provided a free hard-copy of this novel from Revell in exchange for an honest review.  I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
