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.

My Take: I have been really enjoying the Quilts of Love series. Even though the books are not related it is interesting to see how each author fits a quilt into the story line. My mother is a quilter and I enjoy reading about the various quilts.
The story in this book is a sad one in many respects when it comes to the main characters as they each have been hurt in the past and are afraid to let others in because of feeling that they may be hurt again. I like reading about Hawaii as I have always wanted to visit there. I like that these aren't just cookie cutter characters and you can't predict what will happen next. An enjoyable book that had me wanting to read more by this author.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
