I would love to go on a cruise.

In theory at least. The problem is that I’ve watched too many movies where they are on the ship and have this massive stateroom, complete with sitting room. My budget would probably put me in a broom closet!

The next best thing is reading about people on cruises. This way I won’t have to worry about budgets or claustrophobia or unmet expectations.

A reporter running from love. A cruise ship director longing for home. Can a Christmas miracle help them build a relationship before the ship docks for the last time?

Natalie James will do anything to land a journalist job with her favorite travel magazine—even report on Toujour’s first ever singles cruise. After a string of one-sided relationships, she longs for the escape of vacationing around the globe. Even if that means watching professional matchmakers help naïve couples fall in love.

Shawn Erickson has spent a decade wasting away as a specialty cruise director while coming to terms with the accident that cost him his military ambitions. But he’s done running. Now he has a new dream—to open his own travel agency with the bonus he’ll get from hosting Toujour. After so long spent adrift, he longs for the stability of a permanent address and family.

When Natalie crashes into Shawn in the buffet line, their spark of attraction is undeniable. But as the cruise draws to a close, their tangled emotions reveal hidden wounds. Can a Christmas miracle help them build a real relationship before the ship docks for the last time?

This is a full-length sweet/clean contemporary romantic comedy that will delight readers who love Hallmark movies. Each book in this series by USA Today bestselling author Lindzee Armstrong can be read as a stand-alone.

Natalie and Shawn are a bad match in many ways. He is ready to settle down, she wants to travel the world. He is more than a decade older than she is. Yet the attraction they feel for one another is unmistakable.

I really enjoyed this story. The mix of humor and conflict creates a delicious treat. It was funny to me that Shawn made such a big deal about the eleven year difference between them, but only because I am like Natalie and don’t see that as a big deal.

I know a lot of people criticize stories where the couple falls in love in a short period of time. Natalie approached this cruise with that same skepticism which added a nice twist. The author did a great job of making this believable.

Lindzee Armstrong’s entire No Match for Love series is so much fun! I love the way she started the series with Brooke and Luke’s story and has them as secondary characters in the following books. This means that each book can stand alone or be read as part of the series. My recommendation? Read them all.
