Aloha Rose by Lisa Carter was such a fun book to read. I found at times that I would be laughing at the characters and some of the things that happened to them. I loved all the characters and I loved reading as Laney and Kia figured things out and grew as people. I did get pissed off at some parts in the book that I don’t want to give away so I am not going to talk about them but I totally understood why Laney reacted the way she did. If those same things happened to me I would act the same way that she did. I enjoyed this book and can’t to check out books by this author and also more books in this series.
About Aloha Rose
When Laney Carrigan’s adoptive parents encourage her as an adult to seek out her birth family, her only clue is the Lokelani quilt in which she was found wrapped as an infant. Centering her search on the Big Island, she battles fears of rejection from a family that abandoned her once before while her faith struggles to embrace God’s love.
Along the path to her true heritage, she meets Hawaiian cowboy/helicopter pilot, Kai Barnes. Kai is determined to protect the people he’s come to regard as family against a woman he suspects of being nothing more than a gold-digger, but he finds himself drawn to Laney in spite of his reservations. He’s spent his entire life seeking forgiveness from past mistakes and longs for a second chance at happiness.
Laney’s painstaking journey to find restoration and a place to belong among the breathtaking allure of the Big Island will lead her closer to her past and maybe even something more.
