All Summer Long-Book Review-Melody Carlson

                                                          All Summer Long #2

 Light hearted.  Fun summer  Romance.

What it's about (from the publisher) . . . 
She's ready to take on a new challenge. What she doesn't expect is an old flame.
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, posh 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 Leo Parker himself 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.

And I thought . . . I was delighted with this fun summer read.  I really enjoyed the storyline and setting.  It was interesting to read about the start of a resturant.  I haven't had the opportunity to read about a chef.  Or anything about boats.   The San Francisco setting was really interesting.  

This story wasn't really your typical romance.  Leo the male main character is already engaged leaving Tia disappointed.  But as the couple (that's not a couple yet) begin working together they develop feelings for each other.  

All ends well as  Leo and his fiancee realize that they had  'rushed' into getting engaged.  
An there is a happily ever after.  

This was an easy book to read.  I was kept entertained from the beginning to the end.  
I wasn't able to put it down so it was a fast read.  It's nice to read a book that is just a simple story with no twists and turns.  With just a few simple characters.  

I would recommend All Summer Long to young and mature readers.  There is no language.  And no romance scenes.  

I give Melody Carlson my thumbs up.  And All Summer Long  5 big 'ole stars.  

I received a complimentary copy of All Summer Long from Revell Booksin exchange for my honest opinion.
