Not Always Happenstance by Rachael Anderson -- Blog tour/giveaway

Not Always Happenstance by Rachael Anderson
Lani has lived in Hana, Hawaii for five years. She’s learned to surf, fish, dive, and manage her grandmother’s bed and breakfast. She’s also learned to take one day at a time the way it should be taken—relaxed and unrushed, savoring every moment.
But, like a large wave on the brink of breaking, her life is about to crash out of control. A proposal of marriage, a conniving grandmother, a cryptic Asian woman, and a handsome guest, and suddenly everything calm begins to churn, everything clear becomes confused, and all that was normal segues into peculiar.
As Lani struggles against the current to hold her ground, she realizes that she can either continue to fight and eventually lose, or take a take a leap of faith, hold her breath, and ride the wave wherever it takes her.
***This book is part of the Power of the Matchmaker series that features one recurring character—the match maker—but it is a STAND-ALONE novel.***

My Review

NOT ALWAYS HAPPENSTANCE is another wonderful book in the POWER OF THE MATCHMAKER series.  Rachael is one of my favorite authors and can always be counted on to read a clean, enjoyable romance.  Pearl, once again, stood out to me and I love, so far, how each author portrays her.   She is always an unforgettable character.  I loved how much she was in this book and her important role along with her priceless advice.  Rachael always does an incredible job with her characters.  Lani and Easton were fabulous, and I also really loved Puna.  I enjoyed how Puna saw Easton.  I loved getting to experience Hawaii through Lani's eyes and I appreciated her love for what was important to her.  Easton always put a smile on my face, he was very intriguing. His persistence was enduring.  I was glad that Lani made certain decisions, instead of holding on to what she didn't want.  I appreciated that their relationship took work, it helped me love and value these characters even more.

4 out of 5 stars.
I received an book copy from I AM A READER in exchange for an honest review.

Author Rachael Anderson
A USA Today bestselling author, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can’t sing, doesn’t dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
