Nineteen year old Joni Monday is loving life as an adult—living on her own, dealing with grown-up things like jobs, hook-ups, and doing her own laundry. Best of all: after finishing her first year at ASU, she will never again be called a freshman.
But when her brother is suddenly killed in a car accident, Joni’s adult life is turned upside down. Struggling to cope with loss, guilt, and anger—not to mention the meddling of friends and family trying to “fix” her—Joni is relieved to be presented with an escape in the form of a sailing trip her brother had been planning for months before he died.
With her first step onto the sailing vessel Lady Marguerite, Joni plunges into an adventure that will mark the beginning of her real adult life—a journey across the ominous dark blue of the Atlantic Ocean with a small, eccentric crew, and the young Captain Reid, whose gorgeous looks are only outmatched by his talent for care and kindness. Unfolding through the ups and downs of life at sea is an unforgettable story reminding us that love will always be a work-in-progress and coming of age never gets old.
Joni, Underway begins when something happens in Joni's life to throw it off course. Now, she ends up taking an unexpected cruise trip across the ocean. The only problems are it's not the kind of cruise you would picture, for one. And for another she still has some issues to deal with. Oh, and the "Captain" is really hot, and she can't seem to stay away from him even though he's kind of off limits for the next five weeks.
As Joni, and her new friends journey across the ocean each of them starts to learn new things about the world, love, and friendship. And Joni more than anyone learns a lot.
This book was truly different from anything I've ever read before. It had lots of humor, some sweet romance, but it also had a really detailed beautiful story of a young woman trying to find her way, but extremely different than most stories.
I adored this book! It is for sure one of my recommend reads now!
