📚 Book Review 📚
Title: Float Plan
Author: Trish Doller
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffen
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
I don’t really like boats and am afraid of cruises, but somehow the author had me wanting to sell all my belongings and sail the world! I loved Float Plan! Disclaimer: This book is not really a Rom-Com. While it is funny, the main focus is grief. The author does an amazing-fantastic-wonderful job with this difficult subject.
At the beginning of Float Plan there is a note and we learn that Anna’s fiancé, Ben, chooses to die by suicide. There is no way to sugar coat this. Anna is consumed by grief, so she decides to take their sailboat and sail to Puerto Rico like they had planned. Impulsive for Anna because she really doesn’t know what she is doing!
After her first night of sailing she realizes she needs help and hires, Keane, a professional sailor. Much like Anna, Keane is also struggling to figure out his future. Together they discover that it’s never too late to chart a new course.
Starting over doesn’t have to mean letting go of your past; it means making room for your future!
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I listened to most of this on audio and it was wonderful. I’m still trying to train my brain to listen to books, so this one was successful. I was hooked to the story. The adventure. The journey. Finding yourself. Hope. I loved the characters. I loved the pace. I loved the way it wrapped up. It was perfect. And I can’t wait to read more books by this author!
