My Review:
I bought this book because it was in Hawaii. I was there 12 months ago and would love to go back. Having been there several of the places mentioned in the book, I had visited or remember being told about, this made the book come more alive to me. I enjoyed the story of Ashley who has been left at the alter and is looking for something different. Anthony offers Ashley a job helping edit his new book on the Big Island. It was interesting reading what happened and seeing the familiar landmarks. The book deals with forgiveness, moving forward, trust and communication. There were times if the two communicated there thoughts it would have saved some misconceptions. Of course having her ex fiance turning up adds some drama to the story.  I enjoyed this story and am have heard Barbour put this book and two others by Carole into one book as part of its romancing America series. This one being Hawaii. Good read.
