All Summer Long
Follow Your Heart #2
By Melody Carlson

A San Francisco Romance

Tia D'Amico is about to change her life.  She's been given the opportunity of a lifetime, a chance to fulfill her dreams.  Her Aunt Julie has offered her a job - helping to turn an inherited yacht into an upscale restaurant offering dinner cruises.  How could she possible say no?

Having been to San Francisco when she was sixteen years old, Tia has always had fond memories of her summer, especially the week spent at sailing camp and Leo Parker.  And when Leo turns out be to be the captain of Julie's newly acquired yacht, Tia couldn't be more thrilled, until she learns that Leo is engaged.

As Tia and Leo work together to bring Julie's dream into being they develop a special bond of friendship.  And then there is Natalie the woman who has captured Leo's heart.  This is about to be a summer Tia won't soon forget as she faces a family crisis, makes new friends, and works towards her dream job.

Fans of Melody Carlson's writing will enjoy this second book in the Follow Your Heart series.  If you haven't read Once Upon a Summertime don't worry this is a stand-alone book, all new character to love and set in the San Francisco Bay area.  A truly enjoyable getaway that you can take from your favorite reading spot.

This story is seen from Tia's view point and it is fun to get into her as she navigates the new life she is creating for herself.  Tia is the kind of person anyone would love to call a friend.

I was provided a copy of this book by Revell in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book:
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.
