Edie Sparks has grand plans. She's building a boat to sail solo around the world, but she needs cash, and fast. So when her uncle offers her good money to work on his island pearl farm for six weeks she jumps at the chance.

All she has to do is baby-sit her little cousin and help with the cooking and cleaning - how hard could it be? But soon Edie is wrangling a monster-brat, struggling to find exciting new ways to cook fish, arguing with her uncle and being wooed by two handsome boys. The work is hard and thankless and an isolated island off the coast of Far North Queensland turns out to be not as idyllic as it sound - especially when she has no control over the powerful forces of nature.

    The premise of Edie wanting to sail around the world solo is just that - only a premise so don't expect a boring novel of a lonely boat ride. Instead her passion for boating is what fuels her agreement to babysit her nephew on a private isle just off Thursday Island for $4000 cash the exact amount she needs to complete building her boat. She encounters a few problems, mainly her uncle is not the nicest of people and having to share the island with two teenager boys hired to work at her uncle's pe The premise of Edie wanting to sail around the world solo is just that - only a premise so don't expect a boring novel of a lonely boat ride.

She encounters a few problems, mainly her uncle is not the nicest of people and having to share the island with two teenager boys hired to work at her uncle's pearl farm bring upon it's own problems. Also the fact that Edie has never actually had any childcare experience makes it difficult for her to conquer the four year old. Every book in the GIrlfriend Fiction series seems to be a fun, light read but is always missing some sort of depth or real meaning in any case it still keeps me coming back and I'm aiming to complete the set myself.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. this starts of really well and falls over about 3/4 thru. Edie goes to stay with her uncle and look after her cousin for six weeks so she can earn money to keep building her own boat to sail around the world. Her uncle is an asshole, the house is a pigsty and her cousin cant speak english.
