Love Overboard by Shannon Sue Dunlap: Book Review

A snort-laughing, cruise ship romance takes readers into topsy-turvy waters

When a group of four quirky friends retire on a neverending round of cruises, their attire consists of more than floral shirts and gaudy skirts. Armed with walkie-talkies and battle plans, these relationship experts--who've dubbed themselves the "Shippers"--target hostess Lacey Anderson and director Jonathan King in their romantic schemes. But the young couple refuses to cooperate. They've been on the "love boat" together before, and it went down in flames.

Boss matchmaker Emily Windsor has orchestrated multiple romantic successes, and these two upstarts certainly won't get the best of her. The chemistry between Lacey and Jonathan is obvious, but the couple rebuffs every outlandish plot and "coincidental" meeting, forcing the matchmakers to chart a new course to true love--all while inadvertently thwarting drug smugglers threatening to ruin their floating home on the ocean.

This laugh-out-loud rom-com features loveable characters, over-the-top situations reminiscent of 1950s sitcoms, and a dash of mystery. The toe-curling romance will push the reader overboard and all in with Shannon Dunlap's new series.

Shannon Sue Dunlap lives in hot and humid Houston, Texas where she writes stories with a dose of laughter and a spoonful of love. Shannon loves traveling, chocolate, Jane Austen, and Jesus.

This was such a fun read! Of course, there's a great love story. Lacey and Jon are both a little on the stubborn side and their second chance romance was done wonderfully. I found myself rooting for them to get their happily ever after...finally! I couldn't get enough of them. There was also a little bit of mystery mixed in which made the story all that more intriguing. Throw in some beautiful faith messages and there was really a lot to love here.

Honestly though, it was the Shippers that really made this story an absolutely delightful read. I always love stories that have meddling grandparents... and with this story you get a whole group of them to keep things entertaining. (Even if they aren't the actual grandparents, but a group of older cruise goers). Their matchmaking schemes had me laughing out loud and I loved their sass. So very entertaining. I don't know if the author plans to write more books surrounding these characters, but I would 100% read them all!
