Road Trip Island Hopping Mashup. At its heart, this is effectively a road trip tale of healing and finding oneself again after a tragedy. Even though it uses sailing a small sailboat through the eastern edges of the Caribbean as its primary vehicle, rather than some wheeled vehicle. And as with all good road tripping tales, you get a lot of heart and a fair degree of humor, and since this is a *romance* variant of the road trip, you get a bit of that (yes, including sex scenes) as well. Overall the suicide that spurs the trip threatens to drag the tale down at times, but Doller does just enough to keep that from really happening. Solid story, and a good escape that could provide a degree of catharsis for some. Very much recommended. ( )

This short, sweet book will make you want to chart a course for your own Caribbean adventure!

As Anna is still grieving her fiancé’s death, she decides to go on the sailing adventure he had planned for them. After a rather rough first day at sea she decides to hire an experienced sailor. Enter a devastatingly handsome Irish man named Keane. Along the way they meet many kindred spirits on the water and in harbor at the various tropical places they stop. Somewhere along the way Anna goes off course, that is the course her fiancé plotted, and started plotting her own course forward.

A fun read for a rainy summer weekend. ( )

Thanks to Book Club Cookbook Giveaway and St. Martin's Publishing Group for an advance readers copy. All comments and opinions are my own.

Loved this book! Yes it begins with sadness, but the sadness is gradually overcome by main character Anna as we follow her on a sailing trip. A young man commits suicide before the book begins, and his grieving girlfriend impulsively decides to singlehandedly take the sailing trip they planned together, in the boat he bought and recently outfitted. The term "float plan" is an overview of a boat excursion that can give authorities a head start in looking for a boater if he or she fails to reach his or her destination.

I liked Anna from the start, and cared about her and the results of the decisions she made throughout the novel. While the premise sounds dark, and Anna's grief is realistically portrayed, the book is essentially a warmhearted second chance rom-com on a sailboat. Her love interest is professional sailor Keane Sullivan, who is conceived as that perfect guy who is struggling with a personal issue that, like Anna, changes the future he had expected. The various tropical locations sounded gorgeous, and the precarious sailing adventures kept me reading.

Author Trish Doller writes authentically about sailing, and notes that her husband provided her with accurate technical descriptions. But even if you don't know your jib from your jibe, it's the warm sunny days, salt water spray, and honest emotions of both the main characters that will have you turning the pages. ( )

Anna's fiance Ben took his own life and she is still dealing with her grief. She decides to take off in his boat on a trip they had planned to take together and tick off the places he really wanted to visit. She finds out early on that handling the boat on her own was going to be too much so she hires Keane to help her sail to her destinations. Keane was once a highly sought after sailor, but is now dealing with the loss of a limb and trying to prove that he can still cut it in his chosen field.

I really liked this book. I liked both characters and their interaction. I loved the settings of the different islands Anna and Keane visited on their "float plan". Both Anna and Keane have serious issues to work through and they become friends first and become more by the end of the book. I would have liked to have learned a little more about Keane and how he was able to overcome his handicap, but other than that I truly loved the story. ( )

Trigger warning for suicide and loss.

This one really caught my attention from the beginning. It has a pretty emotional and powerful opening. However; the story really slows down from there. I just wanted more. We get to see Anna struggling with her loss and grief, but the emotional pull was just missing throughout the story. I also would have liked the story to have been a little deeper for both Anna and Keane.

Overall, this was ended up just being ok for me. ( )
