Past Perfect

It's summertime and Chelsea is really looking forward to accomplishing a few things over the summer: spending time with her best friend, Fiona, practicing for their future job as an ice cream connoisseur, earn some money and get over her ex-boyfriend, Ezra. But then Ezra gets a job at Essex Historical Colonial Village where Chelsea works and forgetting him becomes almost impossible. Well, if it wasn't for the extremely cute and likable guy who works across the way at the Civil War reenactment village which happens to be the sworn enemy of Essex. That all leaves Chelsea torn between two impossible choices.

This was a fun, light-hearted romance. I like Chelsea a lot and loved the romance between her and Dan (the Civil War guy) except the romance wasn't as big of a part of the story as you might think it would be. Instead it was more about Chelsea finding herself learning to see things (i.e. the past) in the right light. I loved the way that Leila Sales painted the picture of what it would be like to work at one of the colonial villages and made it seem like the perfect summer job. If you're looking for a cute romance, this is the perfect choice.
