Sydney St. James is is unhappy about the way her life has turned out. She has a job, but not what she wants. She has a man, but no real passion. She wants to travel again, write her blog and fell as though her dreams are as important as his, if only he would stay around long enough for her to tell him. Sydney’s one bright light, her friend Gina, has decided that they need a bachelorette party and a cruise to Alaska is just the thing.
Oscar Martin was once happy. He loved photography, he loved travel and he loved mixing the two. Now he invents, he hasn’t picked up his camera in ten years, and he is engaged to a women who doesn’t want to spend time with him. When he arranges a cruise trip to Alaska to rekindle their romance before the wedding he is not surprised when he ends up going alone.
Who would have thought that an eclair would bring him face to face with a women who captures his desire and sends sparks of awareness through him. During the course of the trip Oscar and Sydney, with help of Gina and Leo, spend more and more time together and realise their feelings for each other. When the trip comes to an end they agree to meet in one month but will they both be there? Is life just one big coincidence or is it serendipity?
Great summer romance read. If you are looking for something very light-hearted, no sex, just a great connection between the main characters then you should enjoy this. The characters are interesting and work well together. Oscar is the hot, Spaniard who is famous but not for what he loves, while Sydney is the girl who has settled for what she believes is the best she will get. A chance meeting over a pastry has them both re-evaluating their lives and their loves. The twist towards the end is a bit elaborate but we expect a ‘will they/won’t they’ at the end of these books. Sydney’s dealing with the situation was dramatic and unnecessary but I suppose we all deal with life’s events in our own ways.
I would have liked to have found out what happened between Gina and Leo. I have looked through the author’s other books but none seem to be about their romance. Too bad, I think Gina would have made a great main character, out-spoken and exciting.
