    One thought on “Sailing in Style”

    1. What a delightful small town! And such a colorful group of characters, from Cy and Piper all the way to Peaches the parakeet. I really enjoyed the journey in this small town, and I am glad to say this book is squeaky clean cussing, no crude innuendo, and a sum total of three kisses. Classic romance without the smut, and a story I am happy to recommend. It made it even better to have a mystery about a ghost and disappearing valuables as a side plot, too!

    2. It was such a pleasure to return to the town of Tumbledown, California. Sailing in Style is book two in the Love by Design series.

    6. Sailing in Style is the second book in the Love by Design series, and I have to say it is one of my favorite Heartwarming books to date. This one really struck a chord with me. I had a wonderful time aboard the old River King, a paddle-wheel riverboat, along with the menagerie of characters in the book. I laughed, I pondered, I imagined, I hoped.I was pleasantly engrossed in the story to the final page, which of course ended satisfyingly sweet. Dana Mentink's suspense-writer instincts are a lit [...]

    7. This entertaining, see-sawing, yo-yoing, delightfully comedic story was a little hard to take seriously until serious feelings between two star-crossed lovers seemed doomed to go up in smoke again. . . . and again . and again.

They were in a relationship previously but it ended badly when Piper left Cy on the day Cy was going to propose! Imagine Cy's surprise when he sees Piper peeping through his tiny porthole on the historic steamboat, [...]

    10. Open a book to adventure, romance, and so much more. Piper is reaching for a dream as an actresz, a cin man, reformed thief, Cy - remodeling a room - designer, and so much more. There are several romances. I like fact of questions and unsure before realizing none of it matters when you love each other. There are shows, a missing actress, mystery, suspense, and more.
