After years as a Hollywood wild child, Claire Mackenzie put the urban jungle behind her and laid down roots in British Columbia, where she found stability running a plant nursery.

So when her grandfather—screen legend Frederick Miles—invites her on a vacation aboard the cruise ship Alexandra's Dream, Claire finds it almost impossible to let her hair down again. And since Frederick has agreed to perform in a Golden Era revival show, Claire decides she'd better protect her grandfather's interests by chaperoning rehearsals.

She's convinced that Liam Bates, the ship's smooth, charismatic assistant cruise director, is trying to use her grandfather to further his own showbiz career. But as much as Claire can't believe that Liam's charms aren't an act, she's having an even harder time resisting them...

My rating:

One of the rare good and likable books in this series. For one, the hero and heroine were actually the center of the story (without other plots and characters butting in) and I actually liked them both.

The suspense sub-plot, on the other hand, seemed rather redundant, and lowered the rating.
