About this ebook


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.

"I devoured Float Plan in a day. It’s truly a joy to get lost in such great writing—the island-hopping setting transports you from the hum-drum everyday, the dialogue is sharp and spot-on, the characters feel flawed and authentic and hopeful. It’s the kind of story that takes you away and brings you back grateful for the journey.” - Katherine Center, New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away and Things You Save in a Fire

Float Plan grabs you by the heart and never lets go. I wasn't sure I was in the right headspace for this one, but once I started reading, I didn't want to put it down. The writing was phenomenal and there was so much raw honesty and emotion that it sometimes made my chest ache. Anna's character arc and journey is one of the best I've read in a long time. It's painfully relatable and so wonderfully human. Her struggles and triumphs become the readers. So much so, that you might find yourself crying right alongside her and also cheering for her victories. The friendship that blossoms between her and Keane was truly beautiful. The tenderness, vulnerability, and rightness in that relationship gave me all the warm fuzzies. Yes, the forced proximity amplified everything, but the connection also shifted so organically and naturally between them. I loved how they helped each other face their own demons and made each other stronger. Strong enough to even stand alone when needed. Keane was such a wonderfully rugged cinnamon roll. Half the time he opened his mouth to speak I was swooning and the other half I was laughing. As much as I loved Keane though, I loved Anna more. Watching her grow, heal, and really come into her own is the heart of this novel. Everything that happens (even the bit of angst at the end), shows how far she has truly come. I had a huge smile on my face and a hopeful heart as I finished this one. An absolutely amazing novel from start to finish and one not to be missed! CW: suicide, depression, amputation, grief *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

I voluntarily agreed to read and honestly review this book. This was a great read about trying to come to terms with Life after a suicide. Our heroine, Anna, tries to get back on even ground by taking a solo boat trip. She meets the hero, Keane, and eventually falls in love with him. Her journey isn’t easy nor smooth. But eventually she gets to where she needs to be, and finally gets her HEA.

Sailing The Caribbean Sea and Finding Oneself This is a story about a young woman who loses her fiance and chooses to take their boat on their honeymoon Caribbean cruise, alone. This is a great story on several levels. It is part romance. It is part watching our heroine grow from bed-ridden depressed to having a goal to loving life again. The backdrop is sailing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida all the way to the island of Trinidad. The travel was so fascinating that I kept Google Maps open so I could maintain an idea of landscape and position. I may never sail a yacht in through the islands, but I have already imagined it in my mind. There is not a bad thing to say about this book and so many good things! I enjoyed it and will most likely read it again. I also know that two of my friends will be getting this book for their birthdays this year. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.
