This book was wonderful and happy! Both characters are well developed, lovable, quirky and sweet. You will fall in love with Zoey and Graham as well as the town! I can’t wait for the next one and highly recommend reading this one!
Readnread - Fun, quirky, romance
What a terrific intro to Moose Springs, Alaska! Graham is the grumpy , tourist hating owner of a local diner and Zoey is the quiet, quirky tourist living her dream vacation- sort of. The wealthy resort guests are snobbish “ugly” tourists who overrun the town. The locals are independent and odd and want to be left alone. The mix is wonderful chaos, snarky dialogue and sweet romance. Love this town, love these characters, love this new series!

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.
