Sailing the Ocean Blue....
The Blue: A Novel - Lucy Clarke

Damn that was good! My stomach is in knots! I've found a new favorite author and as soon as I finished this one, I bought one of her other books, Swimming at Night. I hope it's just as good!

 

The Blue is about two girls, Lana and Kitty, who decide to leave their old life behind. So one day they close their eyes, spin the globe and go wherever there finger lands -the Philippines. While they're at the resort, they meet a group of travelers that have also left their lives behind and are sailing around the world on a fifty-foot yacht- The Blue. After Lana and Kitty spend a night on the boat, the crew votes to bring them on board as crew members if they're interested. Of course, this is exactly the escape they were hoping for so they jump at the chance. But as the saying goes, all good things must come to end- and so does their new found paradise...

 

And unfortunately the book ended too! : (  which I'm hating right now because it really was that good! If I had to compare it, off-the-top of my head I would say it's 'somewhat' similar to The Woman In Cabin 10 but I think The Blue- characters, plot, everything is a thousand times better. If you enjoy nautical themed novels, then you seriously don't want to miss this one!  It's a perfect summer read!

 

Now I'm off, in search of more similar books, in hopes of curing my huge book hangover! : )

The Crooked Albatross and Sweet Fanny Adams by Leigh Cross

The new novel by Leigh Cross, The Crooked Albatross and Sweet Fanny Adams, is out now!

Who would’ve thought that a memoir from the eighteenth century would have caused so much trouble? Eight adventurers sail to Cocos Island on the converted tuna clipper, Sweet Fanny Adams, to dig for the fabulously rich Loot of Lima.  They are backed by an amphibious aircraft, a Grumman Albatross, under the command of Van Dusen, a cashiered, ex-U.S. Navy pilot, with ulterior motives.

And the eight adventurers? What a collection! British nutcases, a timber cruiser, a prospector, a cook, the cook’s wife, they are not necessarily what they appear to be either.

Tempted in the Tropics: A Suddenly Smitten Novel (Entangled Bliss)
Tempted in the Tropics - Tracy March 4.5 Stars

In Tempted in the Tropics by Tracy March, Paige Ellerbee needs to keep her struggling bakery, Sweet Bee’s in the black. She was fine while the publicity from her friends Liza Sutherland and Cole Collins used her bakery for a pie bake off to see who was more creative. But now time has passed and she needs every client she has. Unfortunately, when Dr. Hartley goes on a once in a lifetime vacation, he has his nephew fill in for him for the month. And the new doctor does not want to follow the ways of his uncle.

Lane Anderson has had enough trouble on his hands. And if he continues with his uncle’s way to give certain information to Paige to make her special magic baking for his patients it can get him into deeper trouble since the original forms to release that information are not in his name. Which means that he will not give her that information and she can loose customers. Read More...

Tempted in the Tropics - Tracy March I don't know who was sweeter- Paige or her Sweet Bee's Bakery? Being the follow up to The Practice Proposal, I wasn't sure what to expect from Tempted In The Tropics when I began but I was oh so happily surprised. Paige Ellerbee runs Sweet Bee's Bakery in sleepy Maple Creek. It's a struggling business but she keeps it going with her favorite customers and making "magic" recipes for the elderly townsfolk based on their health needs. That is until her customers' trusted physician Dr. Hartley goes on a once in a lifetime vacation and has his nephew fill in for him while he's abroad. Enter Dr. Lane Anderson who should have his picture in the dictionary under the word uptight. He has his reasons though; his previous practice partner's (and fiancee) actions caused him to be under scrutiny for the foreseeable future and he doesn't want any part of the business between Paige and his uncle. Paige and Lane manage to avoid each other until they find out that will both be apart of a dream wedding in the tropics and that maybe a little vacation fling is what they both need. Tempted In The Tropics is a sweet and heartwarming story. I was just what I needed after coming off my previous read. Tracy March has a wonderful writing style that is equal parts humorous and realistic. I also love the bits of current pop culture that were thrown in throughout the story. The chemistry between Paige and Lane was apparent right from the start. They were quite the opposites but complimented each other in those ways. The ending was a large mix of sad and happy tears all in one and perhaps the best Valentines Ball Maple Creek had ever seen. Tempted In The Tropics is a short, happy read that left me while a smile on my face. Tracy March brought the little town of Maple Creek to life with a fantastic blend of characters.
