Book: Aloha Rose

Aloha Rose

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.


Well, the book description is pretty misleading here.  Laney knows who her birth family is and she's going to Hawaii to meet them for a few weeks.  Sparks fly between she and Kai, but Kai is hiding a dark past he can't seem to get over and keeps pushing her away.
Grandma Mily, the only real link to her mother, seems to be fading farther into Alzheimer's, but Laney's quilt is a comfort to her as it was started by her mother and grandmother before she was born.

At first I thought this was going to be a fairly typical light romance, but there are plenty of twists and turns in this story to keep your interest until you find the secrets at the end!

A word from the Lisa Carter:

I am a wife and mother. My husband and I have two daughters and make our home in the beautiful state of North Carolina.

I am a teacher. With a Master’s degree in history, I have taught at the university, high school and middle school levels. After years of church involvement as a soloist, choir member and worship leader, I also teach music.

I am a writer. Delighted by the rhythm and musicality of words, I have been writing since childhood. In 2001, I won the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) Story Writing Contest that re-ignited a lifelong love of writing.

I am on a journey of faith. My ultimate desire through my life and my writing is to proclaim the truth of God’s Word, His redeeming love as seen in the life of Jesus Christ and to help others know for themselves this great, awesome God of all comfort and wisdom. He is enough for every need.
