All Summer Long Book Review


About the Book

Tia Gets a Second Chance at Love When an Old Crush Suddenly Reappears
Though it means giving up the chef's job at her uncle's small town Italian restaurant in Washington, Tia D'Amico is thrilled to move to San Francisco to help her aunt with a new business venture: transforming an old luxury yacht into an upscale floating restaurant. The icing on the cake is that Leo Parker, Tia's crush from a long-ago sailing camp, has been hired as the yacht's captain. The only problem is that he's engaged to someone else.
Tia hides her feelings and rolls up her sleeves as she sets out to make her aunt's dream a reality. But as the tide turns on Leo's relationship, does Tia dare hope he might set a course for her heart?
All the romance of a summer in San Francisco is captured in this delightful story from an author who has made a career of tugging our heartstrings. (Goodreads)

 My Thoughts

I didn't read the first book in this series but I didn't feel like I had missed anything. The book starts with Tia and how she needs something new in her life. Right then she gets a call for a new opportunity in San Francisco, which is a wonderful setting. I liked Leo's character, and that is about it. Tia drove me crazy as did Leo's wife to be. The drama, the instant romantic notions, the silly antics and conversations, I just couldn't get into it. It was too easy and the story line not very deep, I think what it came down to was Tia's character. I wish I could say otherwise and Melody Carlson fans will love this book I'm sure. It just was not the book for me. 

"I received this book from Revell for free in exchange for an honest review."
