ALL SUMMER LONG
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 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.
A sweet, breezy summer romance.
Loved the whole dinner cruise angle. Most of the story takes place as the old yacht is being transformed into a floating restaurant and Carlson did an amazing job of describing it all. I could feel the deck rocking underneath my feet and smell the fresh sea air. Not to mention the descriptive food details -- foodies will be pleased. And the San Francisco setting was an added bonus.
The story is told exclusively from Tia's point of view and I liked her right off. She's ready to spread her wings and heading to San Francisco to help her aunt on a new business venture is a dream come true. But dreams can be complicated. Like when your teenage crush is the captain of the ship. What follows is a summer of discoveries -- in more ways than one.
A classic, light-hearted romance that's perfect for an afternoon escape read.
