All Summer Long by Melody Carlson (Review)

  • Series: Follow Your Heart (Book 2)
  • Paperback: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Revell (June 7, 2016)
  • ISBN-13: 978-0800723583

  • Tia D'Amico is thrilled to move to San Francisco to help her aunt transform an old luxury yacht into an upscale floating restaurant. What's not to love? Sunset dinner cruises, upscale wedding receptions--the possibilities are endless and far more appetizing than staying in a monotonous job in her Podunk hometown. Besides, some of her best memories are tied to San Francisco--especially the memory of Leo Parker, her crush from a long-ago sailing camp.

    When the self same Leo Parker turns out to be the yacht's captain, Tia is floating on air. But will it all come crashing down around her when she discovers his heart belongs to someone else?

    Get ready for a romantic summer in San Francisco, where the future glistens brighter than the bay at sunset.

    My Review:

    I enjoyed reading this light contemporary romance book. I read it at the beach on vacation and it fits the description of summer reading. I was a little on edge because the romance between Tia and Leo was awesome but he was still engaged to the girl who was so wrong for him. I was like please let it work out for them. It was hilarious that Tia ended up being a good friend to the girl. Tia has a good heart and feels bad for her since she does not seem to have any friends. Tia did not actively try to steal her finance. I did feel bad for the fiancée but I rooted for Tia and Leo too. The book held my attention from beginning to end. The ending was great. It is an Christian fiction book although the spiritual part is not overdone. Recommended.
