Summer at Sea by Beth Labonte

Summer is a 26 year old school librarian who still lives at home with her anxious and overbearing parents. When her brother, creator of an iPhone fart app, decides to take his girlfriend, business partner/best friend Graham, parents, and Summer on an 8 day cruise to the Bahamas to celebrate the success of the app, Summer figures it’s a chance to put into action a plan to find a husband and get out of her parents’ basement. Then her brother and his girlfriend bail on the trip and Summer finds she is sharing a suite with Graham, a man she has always found attractive, but has never thought of her as anything but his best friend’s little sister. While Summer tries hard to find a man, Graham tries hard to help her get out from under the thumb of her parents.

Summer at Sea is a fun and funny book that reads fast (I literally laughed out loud several times). I could barely put it down. It is a bit predictable (with some small surprises), but that’s part of what makes it great. The ending was exactly what I wanted. It is well-edited and well-written. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes romantic comedies and chick lit.
