"All Summer Long" by Melody Carlson

About this book:

  Tia Gets a Second Chance at Love When an Old Crush Suddenly Reappears
  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 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?”

My personal Rating-
This was a very light romance read. I wasn’t sure how the author would wrap it up, but she did so quickly in the last 50 pages that it did feel a bit rushed. I don’t think this is her best book ever, but it was still cute and better than a Hallmark movie. ;)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
