Sometimes your heart's the only navigator you need...
May Starling's had enough of her demanding career and even more demanding ex. Responding to a 'crew-wanted' ad, she follows her dreams of escape only to find herself at sea with red-haired Bill Blythe.
Bill warns May that close-quartered living can create a boiling pot of emotions, but even May is surprised by the heat building up inside the vintage wooden boat. And when May and Bill tie up at Watling's Boatyard in Little Spitmarsh, May's determined to test her new-found feelings on dry land.
But May's dream of escaping her former life is in danger of being swept away when several unwelcome blasts from the past follow her ashore, all seemingly hell-bent on reminding her that it's never that easy to clear the decks.
A romance at sea, a romance at land, but a romance that never really blooms before the end. Oh people, you got issues.
May is hiding something, little by little we do get what she is hiding and from whom. And then she gets on the boat with Bill and can't help it, she fancies him.
Bill, I mean he was nice and all. But I do think he jumped to conclusions way too fast, and way too much. Itwas like, do not give him any more chances! I did want them together, I just wished he had talked to her before accusing her or walking away. Men! Yes they are idiots aren't they?
This is book two in a series, but trust me, you can read it as a stand alone. It's about two people meeting, slowly falling in love and learning to trust each other. She has baggage, he does not know what to think.
A romance that builds. And romance should take time, and not be rushed.
Cute in a way
