Hello, bookworms and welcome to First Line Fridays post.
First Line Fridays is a weekly meme hosted by Hoarding Books. The main object is to grab the book nearest you and share the first line.
I picked up The Secret Cove in Croatia which I got from NetGalley and comes out today, July 19th for this week’s choice. I was a bit late to grab this copy, little did I imagine that I would actually be on a huge summer read kick!
This story sets on a luxurious yacht (it’s actually called ‘gulet‘) and the main character, Maddie, is offered to work on the gulet as a cook for the summer. Nick, who is apparently the love interest in this book comes across a jerk – he has done his fair share of playing around, and they just have had what could possibly be the worst encounter. They bit each other’s head off. I’m currently 21% in the book and curious to know how this summer cruise ends up!
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Sail away to beautiful Croatia for summer sun, sparkling turquoise seas and a will-they-won’t-they romance you won’t be able to put down!
When no-nonsense, down-to-earth Maddie Wilcox is offered the chance to work on a luxury yacht for the summer, she can’t say no. Yes she’ll be waiting on the posh guests… But island-hopping around the Adriatic sea will more than make up for it – especially when Nick, her best friend Nina’s brother, is one of them.
Sparks fly when they meet on board and Maddie can’t believe self-entitled jerk Nick is really related to Nina. But in a secret, picture-perfect cove, away from the real world, Maddie and Nick discover they might have more in common than they realise…
Nick huddled into the collar of his coat, grateful for the thick tweet barrier protecting him from the brisk northerly wind that whipped around the lee of the craggy hillside.
