I don't know how so many people have given this book 5 stars. I have read Lori Wick's "Californian series" and loved it. After reading the summary of this book I thought it sounded really interesting, especially since I love Hawaii. It was not what I expected at all. This book was very dull and boring. The characters were very unrealistic and the country that Lilly is from is also made up. I did not like how the characters felt that they had to apologize constantly for everything and anything. No one is that perfect! Also, Lilly is described very childlike and the other adults sometimes talk to her as if she were a child. So, when she and Gabe became involved it was weird to me. I felt like she was some little girl with an older man. It did not work. The end of the book did get a little better, but do you really want to read 200 dull pages for 20 mediocre ones? After reading this book I have removed all of Lori Wick's books from my wishlist because this was a major disappointment!

    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.
