It just wouldn't be summer without a visit to the annual Watermelon Festival which takes place every August. Single mom Amanda Wright is looking forward to spending a carefree day eating funnel cakes and sipping sweet tea. But with her inquisitive son, Ethan, and elderly grandmother in tow, Amanda's not really in the mood for carnival rides or the kissing booth; that is until she hears a charming, funny voice over the loudspeaker.

Grant Trumbull is the new DJ at the local radio station, and with his deep, booming cadence, he sets all the ladies of the church auxiliary's hearts aflutter. Even without seeing his face, Amanda can't help but wonder if he's the one for her. When she finally come face to face with the man behind the microphone, Amanda finds that summer just got a whole lot hotter in Last Chance, South Carolina.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short story. The plot was engaging, and the characters were extremely likable. I was completely drawn in, and will certainly be looking for more books by Hope Ramsay set in Last Chance, South Carolina. I give this particular short story an A!

A! - (90-95%)

May you read well and often
