This week I am waiting on
Changes in Latitudes by Jen Malone
Publication Date: July 25th 2017
A “road” trip romance that takes place at sea!
All Cassie wants is to get some solid ground under her feet following the shock of her parents’ divorce. So when she learns of her mom’s plans to take Cassie and her brother, Drew, on a four-month sailing trip from Oregon to Mexico, she’s stunned. There is absolutely nothing solid about the Pacific Ocean.
Cassie is furious. And nervous. It’s been hard enough keeping Drew sheltered from what Cassie knows about her mother’s role in breaking their family apart, but living in such close quarters threatens to push her anger past its tipping point. Enter Jonah, a whip-smart deckhand who’s as gorgeous as he is flirtatious. Cassie tries to keep him at a distance, but the more time they spend together–wandering San Francisco, riding beachside roller coasters, and exploring the California coastline–the harder it is to fight the attraction.
Cassie wants to let herself go, but her parents’ split has left her feeling adrift in a sea of questions she can’t even begin to answer. Can she forgive her mom? Will home ever feel the same? Should she take a chance on Jonah? With life’s unpredictable tides working against her, Cassie must decide whether to swim against them… or dive right in.
A road-trip romance at sea? Yes, please. I’m a sucker for road-trip adventures; they make my wanderlust go wild and there’s something so intimate about the romance since you’re in close proximity to one another 24/7. It’s like living in a bubble. More than that, the family dynamics in this book sound really interesting, especially with the nature of Cassie’s relationship with her parents following their divorce. So, the combination of a “road-trip”, adventure, romance and family dynamics, makes this book a hit in my world.
