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.
"I devoured Float Plan in a day. It’s truly a joy to get lost in such great writing—the island-hopping setting transports you from the hum-drum everyday, the dialogue is sharp and spot-on, the characters feel flawed and authentic and hopeful. It’s the kind of story that takes you away and brings you back grateful for the journey.” - Katherine Center, New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away and Things You Save in a Fire
A woman navigates her grief during a tumultuous sea voyage in YA author Doller's moving adult debut (after Start Here). Ten months after 25-year-old Anna Beck's fianc , Ben Braithwaite, killed himself, Anna decides to embark on her own on the boat trip they had planned together, sailing around the world solo. But after a near collision at sea, she realizes she needs assistance and hires sailor Keane Sullivan to aid her on the voyage, at least as far as Puerto Rico. The close working and sleeping quarters create perfect conditions for romance as Keane and Anna's professional relationship turns to friendship and a chance at something more. Doller expertly captures the tides of grief as Anna struggles with her sadness, guilt, and anger over Ben's death and confusion about her mounting feelings for the charming Keane ("Is it too soon to want someone else? What happens to my love for Ben? Where does it go?"). But it's not all gloom: the relationship between Anna and Keane is uplifting and convincing, and beautiful descriptions of their time at sea weave throughout. Doller's expert balance of the sweet and the serious make this touching romance a sure success.
Read twice. Second time just as sweet as the first.
