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?
My Review: 4 Stars
Bad Luck Becky is about the have the summer of all summers--working as a dancing hot dog at a local amusement park. But her luck starts to change when she meets Hudson, a fellow employee. I don't think I could do the type of work that Becky does, no matter how hard-pressed I was for work, which just goes to show how admirable she is--she'll do what it takes to make a buck. She also comes across as a character who is comfortable in her own skin, even through her awkwardness. But she does have a stubbornly loyal streak and that causes some issues.
Hudson is a very likable guy and I love that he tries hard to carve his own pathway in life, instead of riding on coattails. Chrissy, Becky's "boss" at the hot dog truck, is a very sweet and fun girl and I love the encouragement she offers to Becky.
Overall, this is a fun story in a unique setting. There are so many quirky situations that really makes this one stand out--signing wavers, caramel apples, tanks, mopeds, angsty teenage brothers with a hot rod car, and lots of hot dogs, to name a few. I only wish the romance was a tiny bit deeper and more reader-connected, but I still enjoyed my time at the Gainesville Amusement Park!
