Julia Fairfax isn't quite herself today.
It's not like Julia to quit her job just because she was over for a promotion. Or to call off her engagement just because her fiance is a bore. And it's certainly not like her to pack her bags, sublet her house, board a rattletrap hotel boat, and pass herself off as a gourmet cook. It's just not like Julia to be so recklessly—and delightfully—in control.
And she's loving every minute of it...
But Julia's new life soon gets anchored with familiar baggage—like an old boyfriend, a meddling mother, and a spurned fiance nipping at her heels—all of them bursting with unsolicited advice. Now, Julia's got a surprise in store for each and every one of them. And somewhere between dry-dock and a bargeful of hot-tempered tourists, between old friends and new lovers, Julia's got to turn survival into a skill if she wants to turn a season adrift into the summer of a lifetime...
