Float Plan | Blog Tour
Happy Saturday friends!! We hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend! Down here in the south eastern US we are finally having some spring weather and we could not be more excited!
Another thing we are excited about is our tour stop for Float Plan by Trish Doller. We were so excited to read and review this book and we cannot wait to share our thoughts with ya’ll!
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.
As always, we would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing us with e-ARCS in exchange for our honest review.
First and foremost, we would like to say that this book is not your typical rom com. Right from the beginning the story takes you into the debilitating grief of Anna after her fiancé commits suicide. From there, this story hits the open seas when Anna takes the sailing trip that her fiancé had been planning.
It is clear from the start that she is not prepared to take on the waters by herself. So when she stops in to port, she decides to hire someone to help her finish out her journey to Trinidad. Enter Keane, (swoon) an experienced traveler on the seas to lend a hand!
Where do we start with our thoughts on this book? The characters of this book are just so relatable and at times we could truly feel the grief flowing from Anna like it was our own. This is an emotional story about learning who you are after a tragedy and as a person.
Anna and Keane’s dynamic on board the sail boat also moved at a realistic pace. So many times we are thrown into romances and the main characters fall in love within the very first meeting. Luckily this was not one of those books. More than anything this book brings out a realistic view of grieving in the raw form and learning to love yourself and others after the tumult.
Do not go into this book expecting a fluffy read with hearts and butterflies. This book is romance, but as we have mentioned before in many reviews, the things that draw us to these reads are the deeper issues that make it more realistic. This book touches on mental health in a respectable way and sheds light on the topic of suicide.
If you cannot tell from this review, we 100% recommend this book. What are you waiting for? It is in stores now, so why aren’t you there? 😉
