enjoyed but it wasn't the best
I like some Lori Wick books, but most follow the same patterns. Usually the patterns don't bother me, but in this book it did. I think it was just a little too long and drawn out. I would have appreciated having more details about the wedding than about how she was sunburned, I guess. All of the names confused me, and I didn't really follow the love story. When they realized they were in love, though, the story really got a LOT better. What I really enjoyed about this book was all of the spiritual tidbits in there. I really admired the way both Lily and Gabe relied on God in all situations. The way she talked with Ana was pretty cool too. I wish I could be a witness like that! At first, I kind of didn't understand why Lily was such a doormat, and although it was apparent at the end of the book that she did change, I think it came kind of suddenly. It also sounded like Lori Wick had never actually been to Hawaii. And how come in all of her books every character EXCEPT the two main characters know they're going to hook up like three or four chapters in advance? I wish nobody but the readers knew that... OK, well, I'm done ranting. Otherwise, I enjoyed the book. I really liked the descriptions of Kashien, which I assume is made-up but must have been based after some Asian country. It really made me look at different cultures in another perspective.
