From GoodreadsSummary: All Chelsea wants to do this summer is hang out with her best friend, hone her talents as an ice cream connoisseur, and finally get over Ezra, the boy who broke her heart. But when Chelsea shows up for her summer job at Essex Historical Colonial Village (yes, really), it turns out Ezra’s working there too. Which makes moving on and forgetting Ezra a lot more complicated…even when Chelsea starts falling for someone new. Maybe Chelsea should have known better than to think that a historical reenactment village could help her escape her past. But with Ezra all too present, and her new crush seeming all too off limits, all Chelsea knows is that she’s got a lot to figure out about love. Because those who don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it….
Thoughts: First off this gets bonus points from me just because of the setting. I love history and the idea of working in a living history village like that would be great. As for the book itself I really liked Chelsea as a character. She was unsure of herself a lot of the time and really isn't confident in her decisions at least not initially. You can see how she grows and changes.
Also the book is really funny which is always a huge plus in my book. I think that this kind of book would appeal to fans of contemporary novels and anyone with an interest in history.
