Float Plan by Trish Doller
Steam Level: It’s Getting Warmer
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 futureGoodreads

The Float Plan was one of those books that really makes me believe in love and fate! I loved how two characters who are both dealing with grief are brought together.
I have to admit, at the beginning of this book, I was a little weary. At first, I didn’t know if I liked Anna much, and I was afraid this whole book would focus on her dead boyfriend. I am thrilled to report that was not the case at all. Though Anna is understandably grieving over Ben, I did like that the sailing trip turned more into her finding herself than about reconnecting with Ben. I do wish that this book had touched a little more on the mental illness aspect of Ben. We do get glimpses, but for as much as the story focuses on him, we don’t get much understanding about his struggles or what it is like to be in a relationship with someone suffering from mental illness.
This is mentioned several times in the book, and I have to echo it here, Keane is like the world’s nicest guy! He is sweet and kind and just pretty amazing! I completely see why Anna would be attracted to him. I liked the fact that Keane was able to get Anna to sway from Ben’s plans and start thinking for and about herself.
This was a great read, full of adventure and heart!
