Last Chance Summer
A Short Story
by Hope Ramsay
Amazon’s blurb for this story:
It wouldn’t be summer without the Watermelon Festival, and single mom Amanda Wright is looking forward to a carefree day eating funnel cakes and sipping sweet tea. But with her inquisitive son and elderly grandmother in tow, she’s not in the mood for carnival rides or the kissing booth, until she hears a charming, funny voice over the loudspeaker.
Grant Trumbull is the new DJ at the local radio station, and his deep, booming cadence has all the ladies of the church auxillary atwitter. Even without seeing his face, Amanda can’t help but wonder if he’s the one for her. When she finally comes face to face with the man behind the mic, summer is about to get a whole lot hotter in little Last Chance, South Carolina.
And my thoughts: For a 55 page story, this quick read still packed a punch and had the ability to draw me into Amanda’s life and made me want to read more about granny, Ethan, the colorful characters from the radio and most of all, Grant. Who wouldn’t want to have that smooth voice whispering sweet nothings in their ear.
Thanks for reading and if you are looking for a sweet summer story, you can’t go wrong with this one.
