Book Review: Aloha Rose by Lisa Carter

Want to hear ocean waves and smell salty air? Pick up Aloha Rose by Lisa Carter for an inexpensive jaunt to Hawaii!

aloha roseBackcover copy: 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.

From the moment Lacey met Kai at the airport, to the end of the novel, romantic tension swirls in the air. Though I loved the romance storyline, I most loved how broken Lacey was at the beginning of the novel, and the journey she endured through the course of the story. Lacey learns and fights and grows, very admirable traits. I also loved the setting: the constant sun, sudden storms, ocean waves, and salty air all made the read, during our chilly fall, more enjoyable!
