The Holiday Cruise CoverThe Holiday Cruise

As if it weren’t enough to be cheated on by her husband of ten years, Yorkshire lass Hannah Davis is losing her beauty salon business too. Luckily, her big sister is there to pick up the pieces, but Hannah is desperate to find some independence.

Impulsively, Hannah applies for a spa job…on a cruise ship! Christmas in the Caribbean, springtime in the Mediterranean, what’s not to like? But, despite being in her thirties, Hannah has never done anything on her own before, and she’s terrified.

As the ship sets sail, Hannah has never been further from home…or closer to discovering who she is and who she wants to be.

I want a sequel for this book, I want to know everything about their world travels. That’s how good this book was. It was a book that is worth reading and re-reading. This book is totally about growth of one person.

I have never been on the cruise and this was a great book about the life of the worker on the cruise. Of course you work but you also meet friends for life I think. You live on board with someone for 9 months and share not only your work, but your bedroom and so much more while living on board. It must be a great experience. If I was brave enough, maybe I would apply for it.

I loved descriptions of the places that they have visited since it felt like I was visiting them as well. I saw Nice and Venice myself but it was nice to visit them again, through someone else’s eyes. Specially since it has been some time since I was there.

If you are not a fan of travelling but you are a fan of romance, you will have enough of that as well. I found romance really great and inviting. It wasn’t thrown in your face but it was subtle and really grown up. It also is growing gradually which I totally enjoy reading in books. What is better than a romance that grows slowly and makes a perfect relationship?

This book is perfect to read at any point in your life. Yes, at any point and at any place. Who says that mid-thirties women/people can’t have fun??? Yes, they can! So, grab yourself this book and enjoy it.
