All Summer Long

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.

My thoughts: Melody Carlson's stories are generally fun and light hearted, which this one was, making them perfect summer reads. I enjoyed that the main character is a chef in this one, who is helping to restore a boat to start a floating restaurant. The characters are fun and I like that there is a fair bit going on, though I have to say that I didn't care for the romance in this one as much, since the story needed more development. That said, I still enjoyed it and look forward to the next book in the series!
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I've been curious about these more recent contemporaries by Melody, but haven't read them. Yet. :)
