About The Book
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.
“The perfect escape. Fresh, funny, and romantic. I wish I could sail away with this book.” – Meg Cabot, New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries and Little Bridge series
This book really took me by surprise. Death of a partner or spouse is not something I am usually drawn to but from the minute I started this book I could not put it down. I stopped reading my current book and binged this one in less than 24 hours.
The story starts out with Anna who is still dealing with the death of her fiance and wakes up one morning to the notification that it was the day they were supposed to start sailing around the Caribbean. After she barley makes it safely to her first port Anna decides to hire a sailor to get her to Puerto Rico. Keane Sullivan is also dealing with some loss of his own and the trip turns out to be healing for both of them.
I loved Anna and Keane’s story so much. It was a lesson in learning to let the past go but not forgotten and to try and start over when it doesn’t seem like you can. Anna went through a lot of inner turmoil and I loved her journey that she too on the boat, with starting out thinking of it as her late finace’s to in the end it being truly hers. I loved all the history and information that the author gave us on all the islands that Anna and Keane went to on their trip. I am not one for water travel but this book seriously made me want to sail around the Caribbean Islands for a few months. This book combined with another recent read really has me wanting a tropical vacation and warmer weather.
I highly recommend this book! There are some serious topics talked about in the book so if you are interested I would look into trigger warnings. Thank you St.Martin’s Press for my gifted copy for review.
