Blog Tour ~ "Not Always Happenstance" by Rachael Anderson + tour giveaway

Not Always (1)

Not Always Happenstance  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 thoughts:  Pearl, you have to love Pearl.  She is an amazing character.  She has a magic when it comes to pairing couples.  She finds two unlikely romantic interests and somehow things happen.  She doesn't play a huge role in this book, but effectively gets the ballrolling.

This is another very cute and fun to the series of the "Power of the Matchmaker".  The books have a common character, Pearl, but are unique stories.  I love how many author's are part of this project.  They add their own voice and writing style into a great blend of stories. (OK, this is only the third of several that I have read.  But so far, so good!)

The characters are not looking for a relationship with each other.  Lani is engaged to a reliable and steady man who doesn't give her butterflies.  Easton enjoys his life Island hopping and not making commitments.

I look forward to the rest of the series.  I can't wait to see who Pearl brings together next!
