Love with a Chance of Drowning Book Review

Love with a chance of drowningHave you ever dreamed of sailing around the world or going on an adventure, but been paralyzed by fear?Love with a Chance of Drowning might just be your next great read. Adventurous, easy-to-read and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a story of a young woman who falls in love with a man about to sail around the world. Only problem, she’s terrified of the open ocean.

Torre De Roche’s book, Love With a Chance of Drowning made me laugh and captivated my attention (which says a lot considering I have a hard time paying attention to most books). Her Australian humor keeps the book going to the very end. I also love Torre’s blog, specifically her recent post about her experience in a meditation retreat, appropriately titled Spiders, Farts, Torture and Enlightenment. http://www.fearfuladventurer.com/archives/9895
