Welcome to our stop on the Quilts of Love book tour!

aloha rose cover

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.

Review: Mom grabbed this one when it came in, as they spent many happy years in Hawaii, and she learned Hawaiian quilting and lei making, while living there!

" Think Hallmark Channel movie meets Lifetime movie meets Joyce Meyers and you have the overall feel for this book. It's not a bad thing by any means- you just know that with all the drama/trauma, all will come out right in the end, you'll be rooting for the characters, and there is enough faith and direction, to inspire the reader. While I didn't learn any new Hawaiian history or quilting, there was a great amount for the reader, who doesn't know about them! This is an enjoyable afternoon's read, and great for reading with a good cup of Kona coffee!"
