The Opposite of Drowning

By Erin McRae & Racheline Maltese

"Wonderful, charming, sexy, and romantic" with "poignant, quirky, and utterly relatable characters." Do you love workplace romances, snarky banter, and just a hint of magic? THE OPPOSITE OF DROWNING contains a sexy age gap romance, publishing snark, food trucks, international travel, and the strong possibility that the heroine is the actual embodiment of ecological disaster... because love is funny that way.
