Book Blurb:This stowaway sets sail for love!

Small-time con artist Siggy needs to get out of town fast. When she’s offered tickets on the legendary Oceanic Aphrodite cruise, Siggy jumps at the chance. A week on a luxury cruise ship, with a suitcase full of clothes and all expenses paid? Yes, please! The only catch is that she has to pretend to be someone else. No problem. Siggy has no intention of getting close enough anyone to discover her secrets. But this is the Oceanic Aphrodite and love is in the air. When Siggy sees assistant cruise director Will taking tickets, Cupid’s arrow hits the target. Luckily, Will’s too busy smiling at her to check out her fake passport because he’ll toss Siggy off the ship if he finds out about the scam. Onboard, dolphins and cameras and runaway ferrets bring Siggy and Will together. The more time they spend together, the more Siggy wants to tell him the truth. Cupid’s arrow has struck deep but is it worth it for Siggy to stop running?

 Review:Siggy has gotten herself into quite a mess. She's a small time con artist that was a former rich girl fleeing from her boss. A borrowed car and another rich girl who thinks she's an Uber driver, land her on a "Love Boat" style cruise ship. So with someone else's identity, she gets to go "cruisin"

Siggy reminded me a little bit of Stephanie Plum at the beginning of the story. She had a little bit of that zaniness that I loved in the early books from that series.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading. I thought maybe she'd be a harder character, but no, Siggy was fun and sweet and really a good girl turned bad, but trying to be good.

The romance with Will isn't really the point of the story, though their relationship is part of it. Its more Siggy finding her way back to herself. I also loved that her hobby was photography and she loved taking pictures as much as I do.

As the cruise goes on she befriends some other shipmates and finds people that know Petra and who know her from her former life (as the rich girl). She also finds herself liking Will, the cruise director more and more and she knows she has to come clean.

This story is sweet and funny. A clean story with a hint of romance a little bit of humor. I loved it and can't wait to read more by Holly!
