The Ship Has Sunk
Misadventures of Maggie Moore
Publication Date: December 23, 2014
I wanted three things out of life: to be successful, to make use of my
journalism degree, and to write for the Life and Style section of a big name paper. Unfortunately, things
never work out quite the way I plan. Some place between life’s little twists and turns and a botched
assignment, I found myself standing on the edge of the Puget Sound. If I don’t nail this assignment, I’m
out of a job and practically homeless thanks to my mom’s edict. The challenges of an unwelcome travel
companion aside, life could be far worse. I mean, who doesn’t love Dragon Boat racing?
About Michelle Graves
Michelle Graves is a self-proclaimed nomad, moving every two to three years with her husband the
Army man, her beautiful daughter, and a fat tailless cat named Torri. When she is not writing away
trying to purge her mind of yapping characters she can be found entertaining her daughter, attempting
to craft (whilst trying not to injure herself with the glue gun), baking yummy treats, or reading. She
admits to having a restless spirit and forces her family to go out on adventures whenever possible. They
lovingly play along.
Maggie is an extremely accident prone, instantly loveable mess of a character… and I mean that in the best of ways! Maggie (as was intended) was the shining light in this fast fun read, her almost constant barrage of bad luck kept her on her toes that’s for sure… But never fear, nothing keeps her down for too long!
Maggie is fresh from a personal tragedy and with a little (ok a lot) of prodding from her mama she is ready to land that perfect reporting job… Except maybe the Universe got a little mixed up on that one. Turns out the reporting career she landed is based on all things sports related… And she doesn’t really know anything about sports! Can you tell this is not going to go smoothly?
Mix into this the grumpy, but kind of handsome guy who she keeps running into… Who actually may not be as random and mysterious as she thinks he is and you have the makings of a great start to what I am sure will be a very entertaining series. This book was fast paced and absolutely full of heart. While most of the time I was giggling away, there were some moments that definitely had me a little emotional. I really enjoyed every minute of reading this and I can’t wait to read more about Maggie AND her misadventures!
