"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
"In Love With a Chance of Drowning, Torre DeRoche has given reluctant adventurers, romantics, and lovers of beautifully-told tales a compulsively good read. I was positively swept away by this large-hearted, hilarious story about how deeply and unexpectedly a person can be transformed by love."―Suzanne Morrison, Yoga Bitch
"If I could give it ten stars out of five, I would. I loved every single page--Torre's writing is hilarious, beautiful, poignant, and engaging--which is to say nothing about the fact that this is her TRUE story!"―Jenny Blake, author of Life after College
Torre DeRoche is an Australian native and self-proclaimed fearful adventurer.
