Charting the Course | Excerpt + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


Stuck on a ship with her estranged father for this high school reunion – not a merry way to spend the holidays. But could an onboard mystery and a cute boy be the course correction Liz needs?

Set amid the beauty of the Caribbean islands, Charting the Course delves into the topics of fractured families, generational high-school dramas, taking responsibility for your actions, and focusing on faith to keep us anchored. The twists and turns in this high-seas adventure will keep the reader bracing for the next wave of intrigue.

“Merry Christmas! And welcome to the most magical ten days of your entire life!”

I stare at the perky blonde lady in her crisp white uniform.

Maybe the longest ten days of my life. Or the most annoying ten days of my life. But I can pretty much guarantee that the next week and a half will not be the most magical.

I respond with a slight smile—she has no way of knowing that ever since my parents’ divorce, holidays have lost their magical appeal. Shuffling between Mom’s home in Minnesota and Dad’s place in Illinois, pretending all is well, does not make for precious memories.

And this one will be particularly straining, ten days alone on a cruise ship with my dad—and his old high school classmates. What a stupid time for a class reunion. Who would want to spend ten days, over the holidays, with the teenage acquaintances you’ve spent decades trying to forget? Apparently, my father.
