A Summer at Sea by Katie Fforde

After midwife Emily has an argument with a doctor over home births, she decides to accept her friend Rebecca's offer to work on her boat as a cook.  She enjoys the work and the beautiful Scottish coast and her independence.  After being unsuccessful in love, she is certainly not anxious to have her heart broken again! But she finds herself struggling with her attraction to Alasdair,, a handsome doctor. However, he has a mysterious past life...

I once read that reading Maeve Binchy's books was like having a relaxing cup of tea.  Katie Fforde's sweet romantic novels are similar.  I didn't like this one as much as most of her others, unfortunately.  I loved the vivid descriptions of the vivid Scottish scenery, but I started to find the romance a little bit dull towards the end.  I think that this novel was a bit too much like a long short story.

When I was overseas, I read The Rose Revived and I enjoyed that more.
