Summary

When Laney Carrigan sets out to find her birth family, her only clue is the Hawaiian quilt - a red rose snowflake appliquéd on a white background - in which she was found wrapped as an infant. Centering her search on the Big Island and battling fears of rejection, Laney begins a painstaking journey toward her true heritage. Kai Barnes, however, is determined to protect the people he's come to regard as family. He thinks Laney is nothing more than a gold digger and blocks every move she makes toward her Hawaiian family. As their conflict escalates, it puts at risk the one thing that Kai and Laney both want most - a family.

Pele in a Christian book

Being from Hawaii, made this book very difficult to listen to. The mispronounced words, & the way too many clichés was bad enough but the references to Pele (the goddess of the volcanoes,  fire and said to be the creator of the Hawaiian Islands) made my skin cringe the most being a Christian. It would have been a cute story even with the clichés and wrong pronunciation of the Hawaiian language, why add idolatry as a cliché. I want to add though that the overall message of Christ was beautiful!

meh.

Didn't like the narrator's performance. Too "breathy" and slow. The story didn't hold my attention at all.

This Hawaiian no can deal!

I just couldn't finish this book. I think it's just being Hawaiian and the portrayal of us was, was, well so wrong! I almost didn't get out of the airport. I almost threw my Kindle when it was brudda instead of brah. Yeah dat's right brah, not bra, not brudda. (Oh yeah dat's is pronounced das.) I put the Kindle down and walked away for the day after my next rant. "The lei is a plumeria, we call it frangipani." Uh, no! I always called it plumeria. I never heard of it as frangipani till a few years ago, and had to look it up. So for 50 years we nevah wen call it frangipani. I'm starting to see why people have such a misconception of how we live and talk in Hawaii. Be warned we don't talk Hawaiian Pigeon English like this book depicts. And as far as the way we live I couldn't deal so I neveh got far enough in da book. Sorry I sound so harsh but it really grated me the wrong way.

ok book

this book was okay... it is a chrisian book, but I got lost in the hawaian lingo and customs for the islands. had a nice ending...and no illicit sex. I will listen to one more by this author to give her another chance.....but this one does not rank as a favorite of mine.

Just Don't

No please. I really tried to connect with the main female character but she is impossible to like. The sort of character that should be killed off in the first chapter. just don't waste your time with this book.
