The descriptions and characterisation were spot on; it was a perfect continuation from Book 1. Ellen is very cautious about taking on a gig at sea, but it was fun to experience everything through her eyes. Sheldon was a super fun addition, as was Dan.
The story builds slowly, but by the last quarter, I was zooming through the pages to find out if everything ended the way I hoped.
(Spoiler alert: it did!)
If you enjoyed Ellen the Harpist, you will love Ellen at Sea.
In this book, Ellen accepts a position on a cruise ship. Part of living with a harp means that you always have to drag this big instrument with you. So she lugs her harp into her small cabin. Unfortunately she also brings lots of other heavy baggage with her as well.
Life on a cruise ship is as fun to read about as you would anticipate and Ellen at Sea is at its most entertaining when we get to see the real life of a cruise ship entertainer. At first, Ellen is “unsure about taking the gig, she hates the first week, and she struggles to adjust.”
Her sense of humor still shines though. One night, when the waves are billowing, Ellen must tie her harp to her pullout couch to keep it from crashing over. After securing the harp, Ellen surveys her work. “My harp would need a safe word to regain its freedom.”
Ellen faces other challenges- her serious relationship with Josh, with her mother, and with her friends. Ellen is a thinker and worrier. Even her friends tell her, “Don’t overthink relationships.” “All of this qualifying. Keep it simple.”
Ellen’s angst and travails bogged down the story for me, but many readers may be interested in her thoughts. I also didn’t care for the shenanigans at the end of the book that lead to Ellen leaving the ship.
However, the Happy Every After scene at the end is wonderful. The ebook has links to Ellen’s harp music, which is really cool! Overall, the good writing, descriptions and characters will give readers as much to savor as an endless cruise buffet. Enjoy sailing away with “plucky” Ellen!
From the very beginning, where we learn that Ellen and her beau, Josh, must take individual risks, my heart ached just a little and my hopes for a happily ever after were raised. While I assumed that was in the works, Ms. Michaels led me through a series of funny but torturous incidents. This is a great escape book, and I would highly suggest you read both books, Ellen the Harpist and Ellen at Sea, to fully appreciate Ellen's destiny.
Pick up a copy of this book if you want a delightful read you won’t be able to put down!
