Review: Mai Tai Butterfly, romance, humor and Maui for only $2.99


Mai Tai Butterfly by JoAnn Bassett

Another good deal/good read Amazon/kindle: $2.99

I love the first line of this book,” My life ended with a letter bomb. It made for a quick exit—like a magician’s trick: now you see her, now you don’t. The limb-from-limb pain came later.”

There’s no doubt that Nola’s twenty-five year marriage has subsided into compromise and boredom. Then she opens a correspondence from a florist meant for her husband and gets the surprise of her life. Yes, he’s cheating—with another man. Which, as awful as it sounds, is also funny… well, it is when… Continue reading

In Reece Daughtry, Dana Minette finds a man who is as passionate about creating the beautiful fireplaces featured in national magazines as he is about saving wounded and abused animals. But Reece isn’t only an artist and builder, he’s also a man who’s… Continue reading

I first met Pali Moon and her pals in “Maui Widow Waltz,” and liked it so much I eagerly agreed when this second in the series was offered to me for a read for review. Even the author’s clever covers make me laugh! (Hint: Every book title is a take-off of song titles and they all relate to Hawaii.)

This time, Pali has lost her business lease at her old location above a local market due to a fire (Maui Widow Waltz) and… Continue reading
