9781849534185: Love with a Chance of Drowning: A Memoir

New love. Exotic destinations. A once-in-a-lifetime adventure. What could go wrong?

City girl Torre DeRoche isn’t looking for love, but a chance encounter in a San Francisco bar sparks an instant connection with a soulful Argentinean man who unexpectedly sweeps her off her feet. The problem? He’s just about to cast the dock lines and voyage around the world on his small sailboat, and Torre is terrified of deep water. However, lovesick Torre determines that to keep the man of her dreams, she must embark on the voyage of her nightmares, so she waves good-bye to dry land and braces for a life-changing journey that’s as exhilarating as it is terrifying.

This sometimes hilarious, often harrowing, and always poignant memoir is set against a backdrop of the world’s most beautiful and remote destinations. Equal parts love story and travel memoir, Love with a Chance of Drowning is witty, charming, and proof positive that there are some risks worth taking.

“A funny, irresistibly offbeat tale about the risks and rewards of living, and loving, with an open heart.” —Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"A funny, irresistibly offbeat tale about the risks and rewards of living, and loving, with an open heart." Kirkus Reviews

"Wow, what a book. Exciting. Dramatic. Honest. Torre DeRoche is an author to follow." Australian Associated Press

"DeRoche has penned such a beautiful, thrilling story you'll have to remind yourself it's not fiction." Courier Mail

"Hilarious... recounts the adventure of a lifetime." Vogue

"The story of how DeRoche overcame her fears, her self-deprecating humour and her way with words would have been enough to make this a great story. The fact her Argentinian boyfriend combines the passion of a Latin lover with the grit and spirit of a Scandinavian seafarer makes this book a Hollywood dream come true." Sydney Morning Herald
