This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the creator, @Lauren’s Page Turners. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!
This Week’s Selection:
Float Plan by Trish Doller
Critically acclaimed author Trish Doller’s unforgettable and romantic adult debut about setting sail, starting over, and finding yourself.
Since the loss of her fiancé, Anna has spent the last year foundering on land, shipwrecked by her grief and inability to move on. But when a reminder goes off about a trip they were supposed to take, she impulsively sets off in their sailboat, intending to complete the planned voyage around the Caribbean that Ben had mapped out for them.
But after a treacherous night’s sail and a brush with an ocean tanker, she decides she can’t do it alone, and hires a professional sailor to help her get to Puerto Rico. Much like her, Keane is struggling with a very different future than the one he had planned, and he can’t refuse her offer. Together they find a way to rebuild their lives and the possibility of new love.
There are multiple reasons that this book appealed to me. The first is that it includes sailing in the Caribbean, which is something I would love to do! Second, I greatly enjoy stories about starting over and rebuilding your life in one way or another. This one involves starting again after the loss of a fiancé, which brings a different angle to stories about new beginnings compared to those featuring job losses, moves, etc. Although I was already planning to request this novel, I was thrilled when the publisher reached out to ask if I would participate in a book tour for them. I would have read this novel regardless as it sounded great, so I am happy to be participating in my first ever blog tour! My post for this novel will actually go live on Wednesday, once I actually finish reading (I know I am behind!).
