Litfuse Presents….Quilts of Love Series…..Aloha Rose by Lisa Carter

About the book: 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.Purchase a copy: http://ow.ly/qKmVW

My Thoughts on Aloha Rose

I really loved this book! Laney Carrigan knew she was adopted and always wondered if she would know why her birth mother left her on the doorstep of her adoptive parents. Or would she really want to know? After Laney’s mom passed away, and her dad suggested she take a trip to Hawaii to meet her family, Laney was able to meet the family that was left, and found out more than she really wanted to know. Added to the family she met, she also met Hawaiian cowboy/helicopter pilot, Kai Barnes, and the two immediately were attracted to each other. But would they admit that attraction?

Laney was full of Spunk and didn’t want to get attached to her new family because she wasn’t use to planting roots anywhere. But the long she stayed, the more attached to the Hawaiian family she grew, and the more she loved Hawaii. And then there was Kai that she was noticeably attracted to, but the problem was, Kai had built up such a wall around him that he was determined that he was not husband material. I was really rooting for Kai and Laney because they needed each other! But were the two of them ever going to figure it out? Then comes the unexpected twist at the end of the story that ignites the entire family. I was not expecting that ending, but it was awesome. Just when I thought the book was going to end with the usually romantic ending between Kai and Laney and be over, it was like Boom! But you have to read the story to find out just what happened. I sure hope no one lets the cat out of the bag in other reviews, because it will ruin the entire book. Now, you have to run out and get a copy of yourself and see what a wonderful story Lisa Carter wrote for her fans!

Annie’s life is deliciously full as the Christmas season approaches. She helps her husband, Samuel, attend to the community’s minor medical needs.

Annie’s sister-in-law Leah is due to deliver their first child before Christmas morning, and Annie is determined to finish a crib quilt before the boppli arrives. With six weeks to go, she should have no problem . . . but God may have a different plan.

About this Book

When 30-something housewife, Alison Monaghan discovers proof of her husband’s infidelity in a photograph with a mysterious woman, she must decide how to confront Frank when he returns home from work. Despite the influence of her best friend Valerie, a strong Christian, Alison remains aloof from God and is determined to handle this crisis her own way. But Alison may not get that chance. Frank never makes it home. Soon his body is found on a lonely back-country road in antebellum Weathersby Historic Park where Frank served on the board of directors and where Alison, with a degree in landscape design, was a volunteer garden docent. Homicide detective Mike Barefoot, a Cherokee native from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, immediately puts Alison at the top of his suspect list. He finds himself drawn to her–and not just because she had motive for the crime. As an army veteran, Mike usually keeps his emotional walls high. And as a detective, he knows not to get involved with murder suspects. So why he is so attracted to Alison? Can he fight his feelings for her–and the stirrings in his heart toward God?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Who murdered Alison Monaghan’s husband? You will find the answer in Carolina Reckoning, but there are many twists and turns, mysteries and secrets come to light, and Alison finds out that her husband is not the man she thought he was. From the beginning of this book, I was hooked! I took very few breaks while reading this book because I wanted to find out who killed this mystery man. Lisa Carter created characters that are believable and true to life. I really liked Homicide detective Mike Barefoot, and the tension that he brought to this story.

This is a really good book, and if you enjoy a good ole murder mystery, then you will love this one. I received this book from the publisher Abingdon Press to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review.
