About The Book:
Twenty-two years of marriage, and all Becca Larkin’s divorce settlement includes is a live-aboard sailboat and a huge helping of heartache. So when normally cautious Becca proposes a girls’ trip with her daughter, Liv, boating from Maine to a ready buyer for the boat in Miami, it seems like a recipe for a fun summer and a fresh start. After all, how hard can this sailing thing be? Enter Grant Murphy, a stunning Irish sailing coach that Liv can barely stand—and Becca can’t seem to resist. Grant’s too young for Becca, but he’s insightful and kind, and his passion for sailing is contagious. Through his eyes, Becca sees for the first time in years a future she might want to navigate toward. There are seventeen hundred miles between Maine and Miami, but the journey Becca’s on can’t be charted on any map. And the only way to get there is to hoist the sails and throw caution to the wind. From the bestselling author of The Overdue Life of Amy Byler comes a sparkling novel about mothers and daughters, change and escape, and learning to love again.

My Review:
Newly divorced Becca has a sailboat to get rid of but she has to sail from Maine to Miami to do so. That's when a hunk of a sailing instructor, Grant, comes in. There was a lot of sailing terminology that I just didn't get but it is obvious the author knows her stuff. As with her last book Wherever the Wind Takes Us is full of charm, wit, and humour. I loved that the mother-daughter relationship was a big part of the story and not just the romance. Harms has a way of making you care about her characters and will have you cheering them on, I loved watching Becca grow as a character and as a woman. And although I found the ending to be a tad predictable there was a surprising twist that I didn't see coming and it made the book all the more enjoyable to me.  This was a short book and I enjoyed it enough to be able to read it in a single sitting. I can't wait to see what Harms comes up with next.
