Lottie Loser by Dana Brown is a sweet romance that will have you wanting to read her next book, Call me Charlotte.
Synopsis: Lottie (Charlotte) Luce's life is all about her career. She works at a bank and dates a nice man. She seems to have it all together, until her first love Nick comes back into her life.
Dana’s style of writing sucks you into the story and has you seeing the island and all the characters as though you are there. The book is told in alternating chapters between the present and the past. I admit that going back and forth in time can sometimes be confusing, but it totally works for this story and the past and present stories are flawlessly brought together throughout the novel. I've seldom seen time changes in a story so beautifully woven together to paint the story's picture for the reader. The characters are also brought to life in such a well-crafted way that you feel like you personally know them. You’ll be routing for Lottie by the end and wondering what will happen in the second book.
