Publisher's Summary

Fun, friendship, and romance are on board as four lifelong friends embark on a holiday singles cruise in a heartwarming new novel by number-one New York Times best-selling author Fern Michaels.

At Ridgewood High, Amy, Frankie, Rachael, and Nina formed a deep bond. Now, 15 years after leaving school behind, they’re back for a reunion, laughing, reminiscing, and chatting how much has changed - and how much hasn’t. Nina, once the star of every school play, moved to Hollywood and landed a recurring role on a sitcom. Amy, fondly known as “the brains of the operation”, is now a Silicon Valley bioengineer. Outgoing and compassionate, Frankie works for a New York publishing house. Rachael, always the most boy-crazy of the crew, married - mostly to please her parents - but is now divorced. All four are strong, successful, and somehow, still looking for the right partner.  But Frankie has an idea to help solve that: a singles cruise for the holidays.

In late December, Amy, Rachael, Frankie, and Nina gather in Miami, ready to board their state-of-the-art cruise ship. The entertainment options are endless, the food is to die for, and the passenger list includes hundreds of eligible men. The highlight of the week will be a magnificent New Year’s Eve celebration with multiple theme parties, dancing, and fireworks. The ladies are happy to give Cupid a helping hand here and there - hanging mistletoe in elevators and cheering each other on through speed-dating events and shore excursions. Holidays - like the path of love itself - don’t always go exactly as planned, but over the course of one festive, unforgettable week, all four will set sail on surprising new adventures.

Cute story

Cute and funny story. Parts of it were LOL. Held my interest throughout the chapters and did look forward to next one. Thoroughly enjoyable and would definitely recommend it.

Would not recommend

It was very hard for me to finish this book. Unfortunately, the narrator made it difficult. The voice is clearly a much older woman representing women who are supposed to be in their thirties. Also, despite modern day references, like mentioning COVID, the expressions and writing is clearly from older generations. People just don’t use those phrases anymore. It made it very hard to believe the story. The story, which was completely predictable and not in a good way like Hallmark movies. Sorry, I just would not recommend this book. This was my first time listening or reading a Fern Michaels book. I don’t think I will again.

holiday read

I usually read a holiday book at Christmas. This was my first audio book. It held my attention but I did speed the play up.

Not a fan

I love Christmas stories. I start listening to them and reading them from October through January. They all bring me joy because I love Christmas. Most get high ratings and well earned reviews from me because… hey, who doesn’t love a holiday story with a nice cup of cocoa?? Right? Of course right!
However, this book was grueling! I have no words. This book is about adult professional women taking a Caribbean Cruise for New Years since none of them have dates.
I literally had to stop this book and read the book details because I thought this must be a book for young adults however unfortunately I was wrong. Even if this was so, I know no teenagers as silly with very limited vocabulary of these women. No grown women act or talk like this utter silliness.
Since I’ve never not finished a holiday /Christmas book, I persevered!
There are no words. Terrible!
I even let my family and co workers listen to parts of the dialogue between these women and men and they all had the same opinion. Unbelievably silly and the narrator was even worse. I won’t blame her because it’s all about the directing/direction. This is far from my true north. Don’t waste your time.

Boring

This is a disappointment to the normal Fern Michaels novel. The story seems to have no point to it. I kept listening to find the deeper message but alas it was not obvious.
