Annnd . . . what do I think so far? I loved the setting in Hawaii and the cultural flavor of the place and characters. A heart-warming romance!
Lani has lived in Hana, Hawaii for five years. She’s learned to surf, fish, dive, and manage her grandmother’s bed and breakfast. She’s also learned to take one day at a time the way it should be taken—relaxed and unrushed, savoring every moment.
But, like a large wave on the brink of breaking, her life is about to crash out of control. A proposal of marriage, a conniving grandmother, a cryptic Asian woman, and a handsome guest, and suddenly everything calm begins to churn, everything clear becomes confused, and all that was normal segues into peculiar.
As Lani struggles against the current to hold her ground, she realizes that she can either continue to fight and eventually lose, or make a leap of faith, hold her breath, and ride the wave wherever it takes her.
Book Settings and Story Locations
One of my favorite things about writing a new book is researching the new locations we've dropped our characters into. Here are some of ours.
Newbie is set in Colorado Springs, CO
Amnesty is in both Albuquerque, NM and in Wyoming
Lexi's Pathetic Fictional Love Life takes place in Henderson, Nevada
Years & an Ocean also has two locations: London, England and New York City
Several Novellas Coming Soon have locations in Colorado, Hood Canal in Washington, and in Scotland
...and in a different time and place (The 19th Century Wild, Wild West)
