All Summer Long by Melody Carlson

All Summer Long: A San Francisco Romance (Follow Your Heart #2)Book Description:
Tia Gets a Second Chance at Love When an Old Crush Suddenly Reappears 
Though it means giving up the chef's job at her uncle's small town Italian restaurant in Washington, Tia D'Amico is thrilled to move to San Francisco to help her aunt with a new business venture: transforming an old luxury yacht into an upscale floating restaurant. The icing on the cake is that Leo Parker, Tia's crush from a long-ago sailing camp, has been hired as the yacht's captain. The only problem is that he's engaged to someone else. 
Tia hides her feelings and rolls up her sleeves as she sets out to make her aunt's dream a reality. But as the tide turns on Leo's relationship, does Tia dare hope he might set a course for her heart? 
All the romance of a summer in San Francisco is captured in this delightful story from an author who has made a career of tugging our heartstrings.

My Thoughts:
This is a good one.  Tia's aunt has decided to transform an old boat into a restaurant.  Tia jumps at the chance to go and become head chef and help with the transformation.  When she gets there, she discovers an old crush is the boat's captain.  The two of them resume their friendship, and Tia's crush seems to have never really gone away.  The problem is, Leo is engaged.  As things change, maybe there is hope for new romance?
This is the second in this series and stands alone just fine.  Tia has focused on work and family and has left romance on the back burner for most of her life.  I liked that she and Leo had met before and were quick to resume their friendship.  I had some issues with how over the top Tia's feeling seem to be since they really weren't close friends before this.  There was drama from Leo's relationship.  I really do want to go and visit San Francisco now that I've seen these descriptions and felt like I was there!It was a 3/5 for me.  Good, quick read!
