Mike Garson, a senior partner of Garson
Construction International, is on what should be his honeymoon
cruise. However, just before he came home from Africa for the
wedding his fiancée eloped with her boss. Mike considers it a
narrow miss but it has left him totally disillusioned with
love. Mike decides he is going to go on the cruise anyway and
find a woman to spend the week with - a no strings attached
fling. He sees a blond in the waiting room that might just be
the perfect partner.
Lawyer Sara Tolberg is taking the cruise
to decide if she is going to accept a marriage proposal or
not. She is also going to take care of some business for her
father at one of the stops. Even before Sara makes it on to
the cruise ship things are beginning to happen. That is just
the beginning of the strangeness that seems to follow her.
Mike spies Sara getting what looks like a
romantic kiss in the waiting room. Sara knows that the kiss
is not as it appears – her maybe-fiancée is going overboard.
She just wants to get on the ship. Suspicious activity brings
Mike and Sara together and the attraction keeps them
together. Neither are looking to fall in love, but sometimes
fate doesn’t care what you intend.
Change of Plans has a great
undertow of suspense that keeps in step with the romance.
Mike and Sara have no plans for a shipboard romance as one was
angry from a failed romance and the other has never discovered
what true love is. Both try to protect the other from a
broken heart until it’s too late and they realize that they
have fallen in love. I found that the level of suspense was
just right to keep me turning the pages to see what would
happen next. Change of Plans reminds us that
just because the cruise is over and you have to leave the ship
it does not mean the romance has to end.
