Emily is happy with her life just as it is. She has a career as a midwife that she loves . She enjoys living on her own as a single woman. But sheâe(tm)s also feels itâe(tm)s time for a change and a spot of some sea air. So when her best friend Rebecca asks whether sheâe(tm)d like to spend the summer cooking on a âe~pufferâe(tm) boat just off the Scottish coast, she jumps at the chance. But she barely has time to get to grips with the galley before she finds herself with a lot on her plate. Rebecca is heavily pregnant and is thrilled to have her friend on board doing most of the work. Then thereâe(tm)s Emilyâe(tm)s competitive and jealous kitchen assistant who thinks she should be head-cook, not Emily. And thereâe(tm)s Alasdair, the handsome local doctor who Emily is desperately trying not to notice. Because if she falls in love with him, as he appears to be falling for her, will she ever want her old life back again?
