Whatever the weather, this story had me imagining I was sailing the beautiful Croatian coastline with the characters in this lovely story.

Maddie Wilcox is given the opportunity to work on a luxury yacht by her best friend, Nina. Although unsure, Maddie agrees, especially as she knows Nina’s brother, Nick, will be on board and she assumes he’ll be as great and easy to get on with as Nina. Their initial encounter, however, has her seriously rethinking everything as Nick seems an opinionated, spoilt and demanding snob and as for his model girlfriend – wow!! After this inauspicious start, the expectations of the holiday makers, the demands of their guests and their antics make this a very different cruise. With film star dreams, unexpected encounters and people pretending, not all is as it seems.

Get ready for tantrums, bullying, snobbery and demands from some of the guests of the person paying for the cruise who is nothing like them at all! It is a holiday of revelations, re-evaluations of relationships and surprises that is a highly entertaining read. There’s even an escape bid made by some who have been thwarted in their demands and an accident which inspires Maddie to dare to follow her artistic dreams again after being rescued by some famous folk! This is an action packed, fun read, with great characters, a beautiful setting – especially in the secret cove – and plenty of surprises. Original relationships need changing as true romances develop and new opportunities occur. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have no hesitation in highly recommending it.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
