Good storyline and likeable characters made this book a very enjoyable read I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. Actually closer to a 3.5 stars, I am a bit ambivalent about this book because of the heroine I just did not cotton to her she seemed a bit of a flake, or at least amoral Tanya had no problem moving from man to man at the drop of a hat, completely oblivious to how these men reacted to her actions Her behavior with Paul once she has met another man is just plain provocative and out of place, but she does not seem to understand that or she just does not care The author built some mystery and tension into the plot, but I don t think that plot line was exploited as much as it could have been.Basically, this plot was fine, and I liked the mix of settings, from Vancouver to Alaska to New Zealand and New York City I did, however, find the story to be have few highs I kept waiting for some surprise or twist or emotional climax but never found one.I received a complimentary advance copy of this book this is my voluntary and honest review. This is a book that s hard to review without giving away some of the surprises Not least because just when I thought this was going to be a sweet romance Tanya s giving oral sex in the men s room.Slow to start and with a little too much character introspective angst and head hopping for my taste, the story builds from a romance to a murder mystery and finally focuses back on the romance While the book starts off at sea, it s not until they are back on dry land that the drama really kicks off The plot twists and turns and just when you think the story is going down one path, it veers off and takes another An enjoyable read. Cruising Through to Fulfilment is a novel by Ann M Pratley It is a cute and easy novel to read Tanya was from New Zealand Her parents had both died and she decided that life should not be wasted Therefore, she was embarking on a three week vacation including luxury cruise to Alaska What she hadn t thought of was that the cruise might consist mainly of those over 60 She wasn t even sure of her roommate She hadn t met her and was a little worried However, she intended to have a great time Tanya s roommate, Tracey, turned out to be fantastic The girls got along like they had been friends for life They went to the restaurant and met their gorgeous waiter Carlos who seemed to take to Tracey After dinner they went to the disco where they met Paul and Greg Tanya and Paul hit it off immediately as both were interested in history of the Alaskan Indians as well as anything else they could learn Greg seemed mesmerized by Tanya yet he didn t talk to her and barely talked to Tracey However, the foursome was of the same age and ran around as a group on the trip Finally, Greg and Tanya hit it off the last part of the cruise What about after the cruise Would they stay in touch Would a lasting romance develop between any of the group Tanya s adventures are not over.
