Publisher's Summary

When Kara's husband is shot and killed in front of her in what she's told is a random act of violence, she becomes convinced the world is unsafe. Her life is quiet and predictable until she wins a Caribbean cruise for two and takes along her best friend. On her trip she meets Nate, a scuba dive instructor and marine. He'll teach her to face her fear of deep water and teach her to snorkel. Will Kara learn to trust him with her heart when she fears this shipboard romance will reach an end and she'll never see him again, leaving her broken hearted? When Kara's boss shows up at their first port of call unexpectedly, Nate's protective nature comes out. Her creepy boss becomes more aggressive after she returns to Ohio and when she calls Nate he gets on the first plane. Can Nate rescue her?

    Story
    "Face your fear of the unknown"

    This was a great story. Mostly predictable, but still very entertaining. This story introduces us to Kara and Nate. Thanks to winning a cruise, Kara is ready for a much needed vacation. She never expects to find the man of her dreams while she is Aboard The Wishing Star. Nate is smitten with Kara from the very beginning. Kara is very timid, shy, and almost afraid of her own shadow. But thanks to Nate, we get to watch her come out of her shell and become a beautiful, semi-self confident woman. She learns to stand up for herself, learns it is okay to take risks, and opens her heart to the opportunity to love again.

    Their journey is not an easy one.There is mystery, romance, and suspense throughout the story. We get the joy of watching Kara and Nate fall in love. Nate learns to be patient, while Kara learns to trust in herself. They are the perfect match for each other and destiny was looking out for them.

    This had a strong story line, that was well written. The characters were so engaging and easy to fall in love with. The dialogue flowed nicely with the characters and was easy to follow. Great descriptions to details and it was easy to imagine being on the ship with them. All in all, a great listen. I wasn't sold on the Narrator at first, and it really took me a while to get into him. He sounded like he was forcing a husky voice. Written as a multi pov and does have an HEA.

    All in all, a great listen/read.
