Love with a Chance of Drowning: A Memoir

City girl Torre DeRoche isn’t looking for love, but a chance encounter in a San Francisco bar sparks an instant connection with a soulful Argentinean man who unexpectedly sweeps her off her feet. The problem? He’s just about to cast the dock lines and voyage around the world on his small sailboat, and Torre is terrified of deep water. However, lovesick Torre determines that to keep the man of her dreams, she must embark on the voyage of her nightmares, so she waves good-bye to dry land and braces for a life-changing journey that’s as exhilarating as it is terrifying.

Publisher's Summary

New love. Exotic destinations. A once-in-a-lifetime adventure. What could go wrong?

City girl Torre DeRoche isn’t looking for love, but a chance encounter in a San Francisco bar sparks an instant connection with a soulful Argentinean man who unexpectedly sweeps her off her feet. The problem? He’s just about to cast the dock lines and voyage around the world on his small sailboat, and Torre is terrified of deep water. However, lovesick Torre determines that to keep the man of her dreams, she must embark on the voyage of her nightmares, so she waves good-bye to dry land and braces for a life-changing journey that’s as exhilarating as it is terrifying.

This sometimes hilarious, often harrowing, and always poignant memoir is set against a backdrop of the world’s most beautiful and remote destinations. Equal parts love story and travel memoir, Love with a Chance of Drowning is witty, charming, and proof positive that there are some risks worth taking.

    "Great Fun & A Fantastic Adventure"

    I loved this book! As I'm thinking about taking up sailing I decided to do a search for good books on sailing. What I loved about the description on this book was that unlike all the others Torre was not keen on the idea at all. As someone who is also being told by her partner how great sailing is I was ecstatic to find a book written by someone who was coming at the whole adventure from my viewpoint: sailing is scary and so is the ocean!

    The book is laugh out loud funny while at the same time giving an honest account of both the highs and lows of travel, sailing and doing so with your partner.

    I can only highly recommend this book for anyone interested in sailing or long term adventure with your partner! (Be that of the armchair or actual variety!)

    "A good summer read"

    Take this one along to the beach and you will not be disappointed. Ups and downs along the way with a happy ending. I enjoyed it and I believe you will too.
