Ginny manages a hotel in Seattle. Her boss is a hard and demanding woman who received the hotel in a divorce settlement. Jacqueline manages a fishing lodge in Idaho. Her boss is her loving grandfather, who owns the resort. Jacqueline is most unhappy with her duties, but it was the only job she could get after graduating with a hospitality degree. Ginny is burning out from the day to day stress of trying to please her boss when nothing really ever pleases her. An website offering to connect people who want to swap jobs for a couple of months catches the eyes of these two managers, and a contract completes the deal, just for the summer. Jacqueline has overstated her abilities and gets in over her head. She is too taken with the big city to really concentrate on her job. Ginny loves the new people she has met, the duties she now has, and the opportunity to put her creativity to good use. Alas, things go awry. This lovely and sweet story is a great summer read. The characters come alive on the page, and readers may find themselves wanting to offer advice, especially to Jacqueline! Well written, with great characters in an imaginative plot, this story is entertaining and delightful.… (més)

This book takes place in 1944. Amelia and her baby leave California to go find her baby's paternal grandparents in Montana. The grandparents don't know that Amelia or her baby exist, but Amelia is feeling desperate as she has no money and no longer has anyone to care for her baby while she's working.
This is a really sweet and heartwarming story. It has lots of elements of Christmas although it didn't feel overly Christmassy to me. It's quite a short book and I would recommend.

This book was okay. It's about a woman named Mallory who inherits a very run down tourist shop in a seaside town. She decides to sell her own home and move to the town and turn the store into a home decor shop. I found Mallory a little bit annoying at times. It seemed she was making a much bigger deal out of some things than they needed to be. This was a fairly predictable book with a pretty predictable romance. I've read other books by this author that I enjoyed more.
There are no content concerns.

I ended up liking this book more than I thought because I'm not a big fan of what I call "chick lit" or the contemporary romance, whether Christian or not. Although Ginny says some prayers, the Christian aspect of this novel is pretty light.
Like some of the other reviewers, I kept thinking I didn't care for Jacqueline and was glad most of the story was focused on Ginny.
I will read books by Melody Carlson, especially her Christmas stories.
