From the author of One Pink Line comes a story about letting go of the past and finding bravery in the depths of fear. Set on the sun-soaked beaches of Thailand and the rough waters of the Indian Ocean, The Unimaginable paints a vivid portrait of a young woman on a journey to find herself—and her harrowing fight for survival.
After twenty-eight years of playing by the rules, Jessica Gregory moves from her small Indiana town to Phuket, Thailand. But her newfound routine is upended with the arrival of Grant Flynn, a captivating, elusive man who is sailing around the world while trying to move on from a past tragedy. Jessica volunteers to help crew Grant’s boat, Imagine, on a passage across the Indian Ocean and finds herself falling in love with him as the voyage gets underway. But when disaster strikes, Jessica must summon her courage as the crew is confronted by unspeakable terrors––and, aboard a boat named for such promise, comes the unimaginable.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Jessica is a young girl who after the death of her mother decides to make a drastic change in her life and chase a dream that she has had for a long time. She moves to a new country without anyone and just clothing and starts to make it her home. While there she meets a man who is sailing the world and joins his crew and they encounter the new danger of the sea - pirates. A prologue sets up the reader to know that something will happen, just not sure when and the anticipation was half of the fun! I knew that we were going to encounter pirates at sea, just didn't know when and this made the book for me.
I don't know why I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. Every book of Dina's I've read has been very well written. She has a knack of telling a very good story. I was at 20% before I even knew it. And not long after that, it seemed like I was finished the book. Jessica is a character I could really relate with. Not because of her long standing belief her mother didn't love her, but because Jessica wanted to travel the world and see more than her stretch of Mid West America. I loved how she was willing to take a chance and to find out what it was she wanted to do. I enjoyed her enthusiasm when it came to sailing and new experiences. I loved how strong she was even in moments when it seemed like she wasn't. I also loved Grant and Quinn. They were dashing and noble. I loved how different they were from each other, but their friendship was strong and special. I think the biggest thing I liked about this book was the journey. It wasn't just Jessica who left and went to Thailand and had all these adventures, I was with her too. There were happy moments, pensive moments, and sad moments. I just liked being there for Jessica's journey. There were some really harrowing moments when I was terrified for her, but things worked out, as they usually do. Honestly, no amount of my words can do this book justice. It's one that needs to be experienced and will leave you with lots of food for thought.
