One of OprahMag.com's Most Anticipated Romances of 2021!

Heartbroken by the loss of her fiancé, adventurous Anna finds a second chance at love with an Irish sailor in this riveting, emotional romance.

After a reminder goes off for the Caribbean sailing trip Anna was supposed to take with her fiancé, she impulsively goes to sea in the sailboat he left her, intending to complete the voyage alone.

But after a treacherous night’s sail, she realizes she can’t do it by herself and hires Keane, a professional sailor, to help. Much like Anna, Keane is struggling with a very different future than the one he had planned. As romance rises with the tide, they discover that it’s never too late to chart a new course.

In Trish Doller’s unforgettable Float Plan, starting over doesn't mean letting go of your past; it means making room for your future.

Involving and entertaining story of love and its traps

The author clearly knows what she’s writing about in terms of the sailing and the geography, so I’ll bet researching this was a marvelous experience! The story of two people dealing with crushing losses, and learning trust and other adult emotional processes is highly identifiable and better than most. My only gripe is the fact that some of the island names and other words are occasionally mispronounced. There is absolutely no excuse for this! I stopped listening for a minute just to see if I could get my cell phone to tell me how to pronounce, for example, Bequia - it did - and Admiralty - it likewise gave me the pronunciation. It’s just that simple, folks. No excuse.

Love, travel, and finding yourself

I loved this book. It had everything I needed wrapped up in one. Great narration and even better story. I loved the characters and the travel. It makes me want to buy a boat and sail away.

Heartwarming contemporary romance with adventure

Float Plan is a lovely heartwarming story about a difficult subject, losing someone to suicide. Ten months after the suicide of Ben, Anna ‘s fiancé she embarks on the sailing trip Ben had been planned, to sail from Fort Lauderdale visiting islands throughout the Caribbean. Anna also embarks on another journey, a journey of self-healing to try and overcome this grief that has engulfed her since finding Ben dead on their apartment floor.

Anna has never sailed without Ben and so after a first night’s sail and coming close to killing herself with an ocean tanker, Anna decides that she really can’t do this alone. When she gets to her first stop, she decides it is time to hire a professional sailor to help her navigate her way to Puerto Rico. Anna enlists Irish professional sailor, Keane Sullivan, who has challenges of his own and a future he is uncertain on.

“I'm starting to understand that some people come into your life when you need them and go when it's time.”

As these two set out this journey they fast become friends and easy to see that it will fast grow into something more. Trish Doller does a wonderful job developing these two characters, they both have strong yet vendable personalities, they are funny, relatable and really likeable .. you cheer them on. The connection between them was based on trust and friendship. Both are on a crossroads in their lives, admitting that they both can exist alone everything was easier when not alone.

Float Plan is contemporary romance with adventure, dealing with moving on from loss and leaving you feeling good. This was an audiobook narrated by Sarah Naughton .. she did an amazing job with all the different voicing, she IMHO nails Keane lovely Irish lilt .. I could listen to him talk all day

“Eventually - and I say this from experience - you'll start building a new house beside the ruins of the old. When you're ready, you'll know.”

Enjoyable read!

One thing I love about this story is there is no contrived drama or misunderstandings or kept secrets that just add “confusion.” It’s a pleasant story about pain and love and is well told. Worth the credit!

Fun read, weird tone

I really enjoyed the book, especially the descriptions of sailing and the Carribean islands. The book does have kind of a weird tone that shifts between romantic comedy and an Eat, Pray, Love finding yourself vibe. It does stay on the lighter side but it's hard to tell where it's going at times. Despite the mixed tone I liked it a lot and would read more by this author.

Funny as hell and such chemistry.

Such good narration. Sounds a bit like Amy Adams. I know nothing of boats or sailing, so this was as much of a lesson as it was entertaining.
