Sailing in Style by Dana Mentink

My review today is on the Harlequin Heartwarming book, Sailing in Style. I love Dana's books and was thrilled to get this in the mail. I wasn't disappointed, this one was excellent. The book is well written, light hearted, humorous and had just a touch of suspense. I loved it. I know you will too.

Piper Brindle is an actress doing a small play on an old worn out paddle boat. She's doing everything she can to live down her families past sins of thievery. She broke the heart on the only man she loved so that he wouldn't find out about her past. She is caring for her uncle while her mother is in prison. She is driven to prove to herself that she is worth something. Now is her chance as the assistant of a famous reality show host is going to help her get on the show next season but her lost love enters the picture and turns everything upside down.

Talented California Designer Cy Franco is on the paddle boat to see his sister married and celebrate their union. He's getting ready to wash his face when he sees a vision of the woman he loves in white satin through his porthole. He drops the wash cloth and runs after her. Unfortunately the wash cloth stops up the sink and floods his room and the hallway. The owner of the boat is furious with him and tells him he must pay sixteen thousand to replace all that had been damaged or he needs to redecorate the reception room. She gave him three weeks to redo it. There is no way to do that.

Two broken, flawed people thrown together on the little paddle boat. How will they survive? Now throw in a Cy's father suffering from a form of Pike's disease and losing his mind; Piper's Uncle Bo a known thief, a deformed dog that doesn't even look like a dog but is in love with a parakeet, a group of yellow hat ladies, and a ghost that wanders the hallway.

It's a great story you will thoroughly enjoy. Please order the book right away, you won't be sorry. Remember God has a plan for all of us we just need to learn how to trust Him and give our hearts to Him.
