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.***
It was a really enjoyable read, a romantic evasion after a stressed day at work. It 's a clean romance, sweet with several twists that make it a very attractive story.
Easton wants only occasional stories. He changes very often the place where he lives. During the time he is there, he meets a girl, uses her for the time that remains there and then disappears without regrets. He has yet to find the woman who will steal his heart forever. After nine years of engagement Derek asks Lani to marry him. She is hesitant, she should leave her grandmother alone and leave Hana, the beautiful city of Hawaii that now feels as her home. But his declaration of love is so deep and romantic that opens her heart and convinces her to say yes. The doubts return when in the bed and breakfast that manages with her grandmother arrives Easton.
I really like this series, these books are very romantic with a character in common, the matchmaker Pearl, a lady very mysterious, almost magical.
This book was completely enjoyable. I loved Easton and Lani, both are real and extraordinary and I loved also how Pearl tries to encourage their history.
I recommend it to those who love Hawaii and contemporary romance.
