Not Always Happenstance



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 take a take a leap of faith, hold her breath, and ride the wave wherever it takes her.

***This book is part of the Power of the Matchmaker series that features one recurring character—the match maker—but it is a STAND-ALONE novel.***

Easton loves to travel, leaving a trail of broken hearts behind him.  He hit Hawaii and meets Lani who is there helping her grandmother run her bed and breakfast.  She has left her fiance back in California but has put her life on hold because she is uncertain about what she wants in life. Growing to love her life and friends in Hawaii, Pearl (the local matchmaker) brings along a bit of intrigue to her life. As her life grows, she realizes that she was never really head over heels in love.

Now confronted with a somewhat bad boy, Easton, a travel blogger, Lani finds herself at odds with him and what she wants out of life.  Her grandmother, Puni, seems to collaborate with Pearl and helping Lani see that life is what you make it.  Over all, this clean romance will have you feeling good about a happy ending.  I really liked that this wasn’t a predictable and that a bad boy had some good points that evolved as the story did.
