Cruising Toward Love, Christi Barth

Cruising Toward Love

When her sister is left at the altar, small town librarian Zoe Balis jumps at the chance to take the bride’s unused ticket for the honeymoon cruise.  But she didn’t count on sharing a cabin with the man who broke her heart ten years ago!

Army medic Nate Hyatt never told Zoe goodbye when he enlisted – or the real reason why he dumped her on prom night after a year as high school sweethearts.  And he never stopped dreaming about the girl he left behind.  Could this voyage be his chance to fix the worst mistake he ever made?  After all, a Caribbean cruise should be romantic… if he can convince her to move past ten years of bitterness and hurt.

Once aboard the luxury liner, Zoe befriends a bored Internet mogul with more heart than tact.  Nate vents his problems to a ship’s photographer battling PTSD.  The four team up on an island hopping treasure hunt.  The stakes grow higher with each of Zoe’s mysterious brushes with death.  They race to discover why she’s a target and who’s behind it, while still competing in the treasure hunt. Zoe’s never gotten over her first love, and is tempted to let Nate back into her life.  But she already lost him once.  She’s not willing to risk loving a man whose career keeps him in a combat zone.  Can Nate breach her defenses and suture her broken heart?  Grab a deck chair and see if they survive the stormy relationship seas as they cruise toward love!

Review

One woman’s trouble in paradise drives another woman straight to paradise, literally and in more ways than one.

I liked the description of Cruising Toward Love, and was excited to read it. I enjoyed the opening, and Zoe is a likable character. However, I like a book with strong dialogue. I like characters to have a strong voice, one that demands my attention and won’t let me go.  In Cruising Toward Love there was a lot of emotion, but it felt like just enough … I need more than enough. I need emotion to grip me by the throat when I’m reading, and unfortunately I didn’t get that with this book.

This was a great concept with some fun parts to it, a little bit of heat, and some suspense thrown in to top it off. Over all, I give Cruising Toward Love 3/5 hearts.

3/5
