-------------------------

Face her ten-year reunion as a lowly traffic manager? No way. Izzy Gordon is going to realize her dream of becoming a filmmaker. Her documentary about an old Wisconsin lodge and its gangster history is sure to be a winner. And she's got an ace up her sleeve, since her family owns the land.Too bad this film drops her into a brewing feud. Seems her family wants to sell the property and the lodge owners are fighting to stay open. They've drafted Gib Murphy--globe-trotting photojournalist and prodigal grandson--to stack their hand. Wow. Could this get worse? Apparently it could, because she's developing a thing for Gib...one he's returning. So at what point does her bluff get called and she has to confess her real identity? 

My thoughts:
I do like a book you can read in a day *coughs* few hours. Cos it was just really short and easy. Forgettable too, not in a bad way just..you know.

Izzy wants to do more with her life, those old dreams of being in show business. To make movies. So she makes a documentary.

Gib comes back to his grandparents who has a rundown resort. But they do not own the land and it is being sold...but Izzy's parents!

They meet, have fun, fall in love. She does not tell him her real name. She has a fiance that she does not want. Tiny bit of drama and then they love happily ever after.

Conclusion:
It was good for the purpose I wanted it for. A sweet short read.

  7. Good FitReader week! & gorgeous views as always.

    I do like really quick read books like that - especially between other longer, more serious reads. Their my palette cleanser books :-)

  11. Yes, I agree. I downloaded and read a little book last night, even though it's not what I usually read or even memorable in any way. But sometimes you need something like that :) Your exercising is still as amazing as ever - I managed 3 days this week - how pathetic :\
