Buy from Amazon: Not Always Happenstance

Living in Hana, Hawaii for the past five years Lani only sees her boyfriend periodically since he lives on the mainland.  Dating her best friend for years is safe and comforting for Lani, but he’s ready to step it up a notch and proposes.  Lani has been helping her grandmother manage the bed and breakfast and the thought of leaving her and Hawaii behinds saddens her.  Her grandmother makes her a deal, that if she waits until the end of the summer to leave that she can go with her blessings and won’t give her any grief and Lani agrees.  Anything to put off the move and leave behind the life she really loves.

In an interesting turn of events an Asian woman turns up to the full bed and breakfast after a mysterious cancellation. A handsome wanderer shows up to rent an always vacant shack, and it’s becoming apparent that Lani’s grandmother and the mysterious Asian woman are plotting against her, they are determined to teach Lani’s heart to soar.

We’ve all heard the saying, “Marry your best friend,” but Lani has taken that a little too far. I love how this sweet romance teaches that it’s okay to look beyond the safe and comfort zone of being with a friend. It is important to be friends with who you marry, but it’s also important to feel more than friendship.  When you fall in love you should feel giddy, excitement, the pitter patter of your heart when your handsome man walks through the door.  That’s how I feel when my husband comes home, and I’ve been married for almost four years. I know that’s still considered a newlywed in some people’s eyes, but I hope to never lose that feeling.  Lani and some people have lost sight of what it is to let go and let yourself “fall in love.” I have come to look forward to reading Pearl’s adventures as I read each of the “Power of the Matchmaker” books.  They can all be read alone, but I like that I know Pearl’s background and see the characters’ lives that she touches.

**I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
