* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
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?
What a refreshing read! In the beginning, Jenny finds out that her relationship wasn’t the happily ever after she thought it would be. Then she agrees to spend time away on a cruise, which again, wasn’t the sunny, delightful getaway she imagined but it was quite an adventure! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the array characters. I was pleasantly surprised that I was completely engrossed by the first chapter.
I would recommend this light quick read to almost anyone.
