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.
Anna is picking up the pieces of a shattered life; Her fiancé, Ben, took his own life several months prior, but before he did they had made plans to travel around the Caribbean together. Not knowing what else to do, Anna decides to set sail alone. After barely making the first leg solo, she enlists the help of Keane, an out of work, professional sailor with his own stormy past. Together they navigate through paradise and learn how to be these new versions of themselves that circumstance thrust upon them.
The never knowing is lodged in my heart like a stone, a constant dull ache that throbs during moments like these, when I wonder what our future might have been.
I can’t remember the last time I sat down and read a book cover to cover, but from the very first page I was entranced. The beautiful writing, the honesty of emotion and the plot itself are masterful. While the romance is slow and steamy, the absolute highlight of Float Plan is the authenticity and complexity of finding love after/during grief.
It’s a lovely way to live, don’t you think? Letting the present peacefully coexist alongside the past.
I’m new to Trish Doller, but after this, I think I have some catching up to do. If you’re looking for a story of adventure, self-discovery, and second chances (with a side of kissing), be sure to check this one out.
