If the Suit Fits by Sally Johnson
Finding love at the amusement park can be quite a ride. Becky Perkins has lost her job, her lease, and her car. As a result, she moves back in with her parents and takes the only job she can find: a seasonal position at the local amusement park as a sign spinner. Unfortunately, it includes wearing a foam hot dog suit. When she crashes into fellow park employee Hudson Lowell, on her first day, suddenly the job doesn't seem so bad.
Actuary Hudson Lowell feels the weight of the world on his shoulders with this assignment. The Gainesville Amusement Park has been struggling for years. It's his responsibility to advise the owners as to the viability of the park. Going into the deal, the solution seems pretty simple-until he meets Becky. The more time Becky and Hudson spend together, the more their feelings grow, making it harder and harder for Hudson to be objective about his decision. If the park closes, it will impact the whole town and directly hurt Becky. And how can he hurt the woman he has fallen for?
Becky has had quite the string of bad luck when she takes the job at the Hot Dog shop at the amusement park and gets the lucky job of wearing the hot dog costume. Already feeling humiliated she runs in to a rather handsome park employee and looks forward to seeing him each day. Sparks fly as they spend time together. Hudson meets Becky and begins to feel strongly for her but is worried for when she finds out who he is. This book has a little bit of everything and is a cute sweet novella. It was fun to have this book centered around an amusement park for different kind of setting. This book felt like it was a real life story where there was good times and challenging times. I like Sally's writing and look forward to reading more of her books.
