This novel rates high as one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read. Writing about her own experiences, Cara smoothly combines her romance and true love with worldly adventures on a cruise ship, as a casino Croupier (dealer).. I’m unable to decide which part I enjoyed best – the visits to exotic places where she finds the local cafes away from the tourist traps (becoming known as the “food scout”), she described the scenery, the food and the locals so vividly that I felt I was there and part of i ...more

I accidentally chose this book to read as part of my trial Prime membership at Amazon. I thought I was downloading a free book. I would have chosen differently had I realized what I was doing. So I bumped it up a extra star (I would have given it two stars) to not defer my frustration on to the book over to mix up on the downloading error.

I loved how the author(s) wove the perspectives between main characters Sarah and Paul, drawing them ever closer together, and bringing us along to all the exotic ports of call. This is a fun read, perfect for the beach, or... a cruise, of course! Lots of humor and plenty of romance. Well done!

A fun read about life as a crew member on a cruise ship.

Growing up in a straight laced Southern family, I was always fascinated with casinos. In my twenties on a summer hiatus from teaching in North Carolina, I drove to California and became a dealer at Caesars in Lake Tahoe. My mother highly disapproved of my working in a casino, "a place so bad it has 'sin' in the middle." Eventually, I succumbed to pressure from the family and returned east to take ...more
