Review: Not Always Happenstance by Rachael Anderson

Not Always Happenstance by Rachael Anderson

Book Description:

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.

My Thoughts:

As you may know from my previous reviews, Rachael Anderson is one of my very favorite contemporary romance authors. She always keeps them sweet and clean with just the right amount of "Aww," and this novel is just as good as the rest! This one takes place on Maui, and with her descriptions, I felt like I was having my own little vacation. The names must be authentic Hawaiian because I had trouble pronouncing them as I read aloud to my husband on our recent drive, which made for some fun, but my husband loved the book as well. The situation was interesting and the romance, magic. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

I understand this is part of a series--or that it has a shared character with another book. To be honest, I don't even know which character that is (though I have a guess) or which book. That goes to show that Not Always Happenstance is definitely a stand-alone book, because I don't feel like I missed anything, though it does make me curious to find out what the connection is . . .
