Myriads of blue waters, arvo boat rides to deserted islands & kisses under the coco palms. Stranded Down Under, one woman's heart finally opens for the first time.
For her thirtieth birthday, Nina Esquivel impulsively jets off to Australia. As a drone pilot, this should be the trip of a lifetime, but after suffering a terrible accident, she finds herself battered, penniless, homeless, and without a single friend in the Outback. Literally grounded due to the tidal wave of the pandemic, she feels the onslaught of homesickness as her entire life sits across the Pacific Ocean in California.
By the saving grace of a few locals, who quickly turn into family, Nina swims her way - literally - into a life worth loving. Against her will, she finds herself drawn to Brodie, the hottie next door. From droning hammerhead sharks to diving with humpback whales, she’s swept up in nature’s escape, allowing herself to strip away her fears and insecurities that latch onto her like barnacles.
Faced with her inevitable return to America, will she fight for who she’s become and her new life? Or will she slip back into her comfort zone ruled by fear? Either way, she’s losing a home, so how will she choose?
This is such a great book ! I can feel myself transported into the pages and traveling along with the author. The character development is great and the way everything is described to you really gets you into the story. It’s been a while since I’ve had a book really interest and captivate me .
I hope this author comes out with another book soon! Definitely love the writing style!
Ultimate summer vibes
I’ve read my fair share of rom com books and this one takes the cake! True Blue at Heart is the ultimate summer read, but with the added depth of a characters’ journey to face her fears, the beautiful imagery of Australia, thrilling experiences with nature, and a love story that makes me want an immediate sequel and movie version! I love all the pop culture and music references plus it was fun to listen along with the Spotify playlist. I’m ready for a trip to Australia now!
I'm literally not a book reviewer but can't pass this up.
I can't put it down. The author has such a talent for bringing you right into the storyline. I'm losing sleep because it is so good. You won't be sorry you need to pick it up and read it. But, I must tell you you will also lose sleep.
