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 been shipwrecked by grief—until a reminder goes off about a trip they were supposed to take together. Impulsively, Anna goes to sea in their sailboat, 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.
This was my first book by Trish Doller and I’ll be back for more – I can promise you that it won’t be my last. FLOAT PLAN was heartbreaking, emotional, sweet and educational. I had such a great time with this story.
Anna’s courage to take her late boyfriend’s boat after his suicide and travel to the Caribbean was inspiring. Learning about all those small islands and cultures was wonderful and made this book such a rich experience Keane you’ll want to travel there.
Keane, a sailor in every cell of his body, has his own loss to deal with. After an accident in which he lost his leg it’s hard for him to be hired on boats because only few people think he can handle the physicality of it. These two go on a journey of friendship, healing and falling in love again. This could have been a depressing story but the author balanced all aspects really well and wove some humor and uplifting moments into it that it was nothing but beautiful.
Trish Doller’s voice is very engaging and I had no issues staying in the moment. If you have the blues because of the travel restrictions still imposed due to COVID and are in need of an inspiring, moving, emotional story full of hope and love grab this!
