Falling for the Prodigal Son by Julia Gabriel

22397098Lucy Wyndham was headed for a bad life, until she was sent to summer camp for under-privileged kids. Now an adult, she works for the man who owns the resort that runs said camp.

Sterling Matthew the prodigal son has returned home to run the family business, as his father's health is rapidly deteriorating. He really does not want to be home, he never wanted to run the family business or its attachments.

Sterling wants to save his family's bleeding business and that means cutting the summer camp, much to the disapproval of the marketing director; Lucy wants nothing more than to save resort and her beloved camp, she has no plans of falling for her super gorgeous boss. These two spend their time clashing and falling for each other. 

The story was sweet and lighthearted, it was a short read with a happily ever after. Lucy can sometimes be a bit too idealistic, while Sterling often comes across as a bit of a douche. As you learn each of their back stories you get to sympathize with each of them. I would have loved to see more of Douglas, Lucy's best friend; the author gave us enough to be interested in the character. Overall, it was an enjoyable read.
