Heartbroken by the loss of her fiancé, adventurous Anna finds a second chance at love with an Irish sailor in this riveting, emotional romance. After a reminder goes off for the Caribbean sailing trip Anna was supposed to take with her fiancé, she impulsively goes to sea in the sailboat he left her, intending to complete the voyage alone.
But after a treacherous night’s sail, she realizes she can’t do it by herself and hires Keane, a professional sailor, to help. Much like Anna, Keane is struggling with a very different future than the one he had planned. As romance rises with the tide, they discover that it’s never too late to chart a new course.
In Trish Doller’s unforgettable Float Plan, starting over doesn’t mean letting go of your past, it means making room for your future.
Trigger Warnings: Suicide.
First, of all, I know I am a day late in sharing this review, 👉🏾👈🏾 the reason is that the American dating system confuses me so badly. When signing up for this book tour, I thought I picked the 21st of March only for the confirmation email to come around and actually show I picked the 3rd of March. I just finished reading this book and I’m so happy I get the chance to promote this endearing book about the process of healing/overcoming the grief of losing someone or something important.
A story that made me feel like I was sailing around the world along with Anna and Keane, as I learnt bits and pieces of the history of the various places. I completely felt like I was a fly on the wall, experiencing everything with them. The romance was sweet, very slow and natural and oh so realistic, where can I find myself a Keane Sullivan? I loved the honesty and unproblematic ways of both characters, their ways of resolving conflict is 100% admirable, moving forward I aspire to be like them with whomsoever I end up giving my heart.
The story pacing is not so fast, but it’s not slow it’s perfect for the kind of story the Float Plan is. It’s a story not to be rushed, but to submerge yourself in its message and beauty. There’s a lot going on in the story but the most beautiful thing about it is how it gives so much hope that there’s still so much good in the world, and all you have to do is give yourself the space to explore and experience it.
I highly recommend this book if you need a break or want to feel like you’re on vacation, although I’ll have to give a trigger warning as suicide is a major theme in this story.
