Special education teacher Lucy Wheeler is sick of being taken for granted. Sick of people thinking that they know what's best for her. And sick of being the sweet one. It's time to break free from that role. It's time for a do-over. But no matter what her best friend says, dating her ex-boyfriend, Reverend Curtis Campbell, is not the kind of do-over she has in mind.
* * *
Although Lucy and Curt grew up together, they didn't start dating until the end of their senior year of high school. Then once they went off to different colleges, Curt changed. He withdrew to the point that he almost seemed embarrassed to be with her. Curt was so preoccupied with being the perfect minister, Lucy never felt like she had his full attention, and when he stopped returning her calls, she convinced herself it was for the best.
Lucy Wheeler has haunted Curt Campbell's dreams. When he ended their relationship in college, he told himself that she deserved so much more than he could ever give her--a comfortable life and a husband who would never have to make her take a backseat to his parishioners' needs.
When Lucy corners Curt in the supply closet and informs him that she is forgiving him for dumping her and is giving him a second chance, he knows he shouldn't take it. But when she orders him to pick her up that night, he can't resist.
Will things be different this time? Or will Curt's ministerial duties come between them again?

GOOD GIRL OVERBOARD is a wonderful start to a promising series. I loved it and could not help rooting for Darcy to find love with the handsome captain. ...Mishaps, interesting characters, witty banter, ulterior motives, passion, secrets, a shipboard romance and love intertwine to provide readers with an entrancing story that will leave them feeling good. ...exceeded my already high expectations. ... Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of GOOD GIRL OVERBOARD. I am sure you will enjoy it just as much as I did!
