Confession - I am particular about books. Yes, I refuse to read Harry Potter and Fifty Shades of Gray, because everyone has read them. I love to read - it's how I would choose to spend a day, and before I had kids, I would sit down with the latest Lisa Scottoline and not stop reading until I finished. Those days are on hold for a bit longer, but not my passion for reading.
While I tend to read the same type of books (mysteries with a female sleuth), and have a cadre of authors that I rely on to keep my library full of new things, occasionally, something "different" sneaks in. My most recent something different is Aloha Also Means Goodbye by my friend, and fellow blogger, Jessica Rosenberg.
I was nervous when I requested to review Jessica's book - because it's out of my "normal" and I didn't want to let her down. Well never fear, this book hooked me about 10 pages in and kept my attention until I read every word. Jessica has a real way with dialogue and weaving a story. Just when you think it's a predictable story, she throws you a curve. It's a quick, fun read and PERFECT for your beach or pool bag this summer!
Aloha Also Means Goodbye is the story of a girl, Jo, who heads to Hawaii to renew her wedding vows with Jordan, the man who saved her when she was beyond broken. When she arrives on the island she discovers that Andy, part of the reason she needed fixing, is there too. With the help of her two best friends, and despite the meddling of her mother, Jo has to face down her past in order to move on with her future.
This book was released in November, digitally to Kindle - but it will be available in paper format and available on Amazon beginning June 1st! This is Jessica's first novel, although she'd been blogging at http://itsjessicaslife.com for a long time. Jessica is the mom of two little girls, living in Northern California.
Guess what?? Aloha Also Means Goodbye is now an award winning novel too! The novel took silver in the Independent Publisher Book Awards in the erotica/romance ebook category. (Don't worry it is NOT erotica.)
