Sometimes, you’ve just got to take the plunge …
When marine biologist, Jenny Payne, agrees to spend Christmas working on the Cape Adare cruise ship to escape a disastrous love affair, she envisions a few weeks of sunny climes, cocktails and bronzed men …
What she gets is an Antarctic expedition, extreme weather, and a couple of close shaves with death. And then there’s her fellow passengers; Vera, the eccentric, elderly crime writer and Lian, a young runaway in pursuit of forbidden love …
There’s also Kit Walker; the mysterious and handsome man who is renting the most luxurious cabin on the ship, but who nobody ever sees.
As the expedition progresses, Jenny finds herself becoming increasingly obsessed with the enigmatic Kit and the secrets he hides. Will she crack the code before the return journey or is she bound for another disappointment?
Have you ever wanted to get away from it all and clear your head? I know I have, and that is just what Jenny wanted to do to escape Christmas and leave all her troubles behind her. She took a job on a cruise ship, looking forward to some Tropical Sunshine. She just forgot to ask where the cruise was going to and it wasn't somewhere tropical. I won't say more as I don't want to release any spoilers.
I enjoyed the excitement this book brought. I love anything with a travel element in it, and this book was no exception. I have now added another destination to my bucket list, which you may think quite a bizarre choice when you read the book.
This book had some strong and interesting characters in it; including women of all ages and backgrounds. There was also a lot of content considering it was a novella.
My only criticism of this book was that I didn't want it to end. I felt the story could have kept going and it just ended a bit too abruptly with some story lines that could have been finished. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5.
