  • an attractive five-star read

    The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler an attractive five-star read. This is just simply adorable and fun to read, I don’t know if I need to put more for my review as overall this is the equivalent of a warm summer day lazing about with friends, its funny and quirky and has that sense of relaxing you and drawing you in. The setting of Moose Springs Alaska is amazing, the characters are all well plotted and fun, even down to one character’s amazing wardrobe. But most of all Zoey and Graham will make you feel part of their story. This series has legs to go far and I cant wait for number two.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • "No Tourists"

    She’s taking a trip. He’s about to fall. Graham Barnett had a strict “no tourists” policy until Zoey Caldwell broke all of his rules. One look at the mountain town of Moose Springs and one encounter with grumpy diner owner Graham, and Zoey is smitten. Enter Ulysses the moose and things just go crazy. First off, let me just say that I love books that take place in Alaska! One of my all-time favorite plot locations to read about. The Tourist Attraction was such a fun read. I enjoyed the flirty banter between Graham and Zoey, and the humor and quick, witty one-liners were off the charts. This is a book that will make you LOL in real time. This was exactly the book I wanted to get lost in for a few hours with everything going on in the world today. Also love that big as your face cinnamon rolls are a focal point for this story! If you are in the mood for a quick, fun and easy read to help take your mind off of things, grab this one when it comes out in May! Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

  • Cute, fun romance set in a quirky Alaska town

    Cute, cute, cute. This was a perfectly lovely, light and frothy romance with a beautiful setting in a tourist town in Alaska, complete with quirky, sometimes surly locals, and a friendly moose. Our hero, Graham, runs a dive restaurant called The Tourist Trap (complete with hot dogs made from reindeer meat), is famous for verbally abusing his customers, and likes to dress his blind border collie in fun outfits. He was born and raised in Moose Springs, knows all of the other locals, and barely tolerates the summer tourists that sweep through "his" town. When he meets Zoey, an unemployed waitress who is in town for 2 weeks, spent all of her savings on her "dream" trip to Alaska, and is absolutely determined to maintain a positive attitude in the face of some appallingly bad luck (and sometimes bad judgement), he's immediately smitten, but the problem is, Graham NEVER dates tourists, and any possible relationship with Zoey comes with a guaranteed expiration date. Watching these two fumble their way to a relationship was adorable. I had a few niggles because occasionally Zoey was a bit too determined to look on the bright side no matter what. Still it was a fun ride. I've been to Alaska a couple of times and this definitely made me want to go back. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • A Welcome Surprise!

    I started The Tourist Attraction prepared to be disappointed. I knew the synopsis sounded cute, but I'd recently read The Simple Wild and Wild at Heart and I was afraid I'd be comparing it to two books that had completely swept me off my feet. But try as I might, I couldn't fight the grin that overtook my face within the first few pages. And I kept finding myself smiling and laughing out loud as I read the rest of this adorable book. What I liked: Graham and Zoey are adorkable together. Their banter and chemistry is on point. I loved that Zoey was adventurous despite being quieter than her more confidant friend, Lana. Sometimes when our leading lady is the nerdy, quiet type, the author also makes her shy and timid. Not Zoey! I loved the setting. I think I'm developing an Alaskan fixation with all the books I've been reading lately. Morgenthaler does a beautiful job of setting the scene and giving the reader memorable (and romantic) experiences. I also loved the plot point of the town vs. the tourists. I love to travel, but I'm always thinking about how the locals must feel about strangers constantly rotating through the place they live and love. While tourism is sometimes necessary to keep money coming in, it often also means destroying some of what there is to love about a place. It's definitely a rock and hard place, and the author succeeds at showing a bit of both sides. But what I love most about this book is the humor and heart. I laughed, smiled, and got misty-eyed, and that's the kind of escapism needed right now. While I love this book and highly recommend it, a few things did bother me. I wanted more of Zoey's backstory. I kept waiting for it, thinking we're going to find out why Alaska has always been her dream destination, but we never get it. I also found myself confused by some of the dialogue--backtracking and rereading--but overall these small things weren't enough to kill my happy reading experience. The Tourist Attraction is so much fun, and I can't wait to read the next installment. I was provided an advance e-copy of this book from the publisher, Sourcebooks Casablanca, through Netgalley.

  • Fun, light, and easy read

    I really enjoyed this book! It was a nice, light and easy read. I liked how the author wrote more about the guy's perspective and how he was falling for the girl. The only part I found odd was how Graham deal with his blind border collie Jake. He was always picking him up and carrying him. Border collies are mid size dogs and generally crave lots of activity and stimulation. However if you didn't know this then you wouldn't notice this quirk in the book. All in all a fun, light and easy read

    Thanks for your feedback!
