What a fun beginning, middle, and end. The story starts with spilled food and ends with a HEA. What else does a reader need?
Both characters are well fleshed out and relateable. There's multiple hurdles for Natalie and Shawn to cross, issues to work through, and lots of sigh worthy moments to enjoy before the inevitable swoony end.
Wonderful appearances from some of the Tujour crew and of characters from other books in this series, but if you read this as a stand alone you won't feel in the dark.
Another success from Ms. Armstrong.
A reporter running from love. A cruise ship director longing for home. Can a Christmas miracle help them build a relationship before the ship docks for the last time?
Natalie James will do anything to land a journalist job with her favorite travel magazine—even report on Toujour’s first ever singles cruise. After a string of one-sided relationships, she longs for the escape of vacationing around the globe. Even if that means watching professional matchmakers help naïve couples fall in love.
Shawn Erickson has spent a decade wasting away as a specialty cruise director while coming to terms with the accident that cost him his military ambitions. But he’s done running. Now he has a new dream—to open his own travel agency with the bonus he’ll get from hosting Toujour. After so long spent adrift, he longs for the stability of a permanent address and family.
When Natalie crashes into Shawn in the buffet line, their spark of attraction is undeniable. But as the cruise draws to a close, their tangled emotions reveal hidden wounds. Can a Christmas miracle help them build a real relationship before the ship docks for the last time?
This is a full-length sweet/clean contemporary romantic comedy that will delight readers who love Hallmark movies. Each book in this series by USA Today bestselling author Lindzee Armstrong can be read as a stand-alone.
