The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler is a feast to the reader. This is a beautiful story placed in a small town in Alaska named Moose Springs. After reading this book, I so want to go to Moose Springs and have a small vacation, all thanks to the author for the wonderful details she included about the town in the book.
Graham is a local of Moose Springs who runs a cage named ‘The Tourist Trap’. He loves his small town and hates when tourists come and spoil the peace among the locals. Long time ago, he made a rule of ‘no tourist’ policy for his own dating life. But all the caution flies right out of the window when he lays his eyes on Zoey, who comes to visit the town for two weeks on a vacation.
Zoey and Graham fall hard and fast for each other. I couldn’t help but fall in love with both Jake, Graham’s pet dog and Ulysses, the town’s moose. They play a key role in bringing Zoey and Graham together. Though Graham initially builds walls to put Zoey at distance, he eventually gives in. And for all the romantics out there, there is a proper filmy ending to this story that you wouldn’t wanna miss.
There is also a little drama around the town is losing its economy and the locals completely going against the privatization of the town and its local businesses.
This book is going to be released on May 5th, 2020. A perfect read for summer. Being a traveler myself, I loved this book so much. Cover illustration by Kristen Solecki is very cute. Thank you Sourcebooks and Sarah Morgenthaler for sharing the ARC copy with me.
