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?
There were some beautiful descriptions of San Francisco, and I loved all of the boat life details. I didn’t connect with Tia, though, so I was never really rooting for her. And I’m not really a fan of romances where the man can end an engagement one week, then be with another woman the next — those aren’t the kind of men I consider to be worth sacrificing for.
I’m not a particular fan of this romance trope, but the book itself wasn’t bad. If you like that kind of story and have ever wanted to read about northern California, I would suggest this book.
