"All Summer Long"
Melody Carlson

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.

While I was looking forward to reading another book by Melody Carlson, as I usually enjoy her books, this one I did not.  From the description of the book, I was anticipating a fun, "San Fransisco vacation".   Unfortunately, this book was anything but that. The description of the scenery was beautiful, but the rest of the book seemed more like a soap opera.  

There were also instances where Tia and her friend (that is a girl) were joking as if they were more than friends.  That is not appreciated nor welcomed here.  I was raised that sin is sin and to make fun of sin is just as much of a sin than the sin you are making fun of.  This ruined the whole book for me.  Never would I expect to read such material in a "Christian" fiction novel.  
I cannot recommend this book.
