Ship To Shore by Elizabeth Krall
Ship to Shore by Elizabeth Krall follows main characters Sally and Dermid, who meet on a ship while sailing across the Atlantic ocean. Sally is instantly drawn to Dermid and although they have a strong connection, their romance ends badly … and very quickly. But, there may still be hope for them as Sally accepts a job assignment on remote Scottish island nearby to where Dermid lives, although she insists that he isn’t the reason. But that quickly changes. Once Sally’s assignment is over, does she plan to stay in Scotland? Or will she return home?
Ship to Shore is a witty romance set against the North Atlantic as a backdrop, where two people must learn to trust their instincts and truly go for it in terms of love. At first they are both wary of truly committing to the other, but once they learn to trust their hearts, they are finally able to give in to one another. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I believe I finished it in a few days and thought about it while I wasn’t reading, constantly wondering what would happen to Sally and Dermid and if they would ever wind up together. Thankfully, the ending doesn’t disappoint (although it literally happens at the very last minute). I loved the scenic descriptions and you can tell that the author definitely did her research. All in all, a wonderful read and a great escape during the summer time.
