Blue Sky by Melissa Lemon

Pretty cover, huh?

Author Melissa Lemon did something I never saw coming.

She turned one of my biggest fears into...
a love story.

Dude, this story starts with a dude...
a homeless dude...
hiding in a single girls

*cue psycho music*

How many stories do you know of
can turn a homeless dude
into the love interest?

But she did it!

And she did it well.

Probably because it wasn't this homeless dude

But this homeless dude
Much nicer!
(note: this might just be a younger version of the first guy)

So, if you can get over the fear that you have a homeless dude living in your basement
you'll really enjoy this book.

(I hope my tongue in cheek review doesn't turn anyone off. It's REALLY hard for me to be serious!)

Here is the actual synopsis:
Sunny is bereaving the sudden death of her parents. Lewis is a homeless runaway seeking shelter in Sunny's basement from an early winter storm. When they unexpectedly meet, Sunny wants nothing more than to kill him. After a bizarre hostage situation and a poker game, Sunny realizes that Lewis isn't out to hurt her. Their initial distaste turns to friendship and love, but Sunny isn't keen on starting a relationship with a man she knows so little about. Lewis is loyal, and his patience paramount. Sunny is hesitant but her love runs deep and true. They are separated unwillingly, and must struggle and face overwhelming odds to find each other again.

And more about the author:
Melissa has had many imaginary friends (and enemies) since she was a child. Her vivid imagination had her writing stories and jotting down book ideas for years until she finally sat down and finished a novel. She is married to an awesome man and the proud mother of three children. Music is also an important part of her life and she shares time with her music students teaching them piano, cello or guitar. Melissa is a graduate of the University of Utah and currently resides in the Salt Lake area.

Even more about the book and author:


  1. That is a really interesting premise! And that cover is fun-- I like the cloud play. Best to you, Melissa!

  2. Ha! What a funny premise! Very intriguing. Gosh, now that's going to be on my mind!

  3. Thanks Shelly. I'm glad I assisted in helping you overcome one of your fears?? Love it!

  4. And I love that picture with the guy holding a sign that says "I need a girlfriend." Where did you find that? I could have used it for my cover picture. :)

  5. I was just saying how hard it is to tell the difference between a bearded hipster guy and a bearded homeless guy.

  6. Imaginary friends and enemies...I like that line;) Cool post:)

  7. When I was growing up, a homeless man lived in the basement of the house across the street. It was in the process of being built, and he was one of the workers. It was pretty creepy.

  8. Don't worry Shelley, no one expects serious from you! You are out comic relief! And we adore you. This book is very very unique I would say! Can't be any more different than zombie love and I loved Warm Bodies the movie!

  9. It was a fun story. I loved Stewart and his siblings.
