A funny-but-touching tale about everything that can go wrong...and what makes it all right!
Tess Nelson is poised to take a well-deserved step up the corporate ladder when it's yanked out from under her. With no job and nothing to fill her days--just a nonrefundable ticket for a trip to Hawaii--Tess decides a tropical vacation is just what she needs. But Tess's journey to paradise is a disaster from the beginning. A sprained ankle at the airport is just the beginning. Then there's the lost contact lens and the lost luggage, the lightning storm at a luau, and the hotel fire. Not to mention the approaching hurricane. And the attractive, annoying young man who keeps crossing her path--and really shaking her up. All Tess wants to do is get her life back under control. But God, it seems, has something else in mind--like opening her heart to everything her life could be.

Brenda S. Foster5 Stars Out Of 5May 23, 2008Brenda S. FosterIt usually takes me about a week to read a book, but I read this one in two days! I had a hard time putting it down! You just never knew what was gonna happen next! I was reading it during my breaks at work, and when I would return back to my job, my co-workers wanted to know what was up! It is a great read!
Jen1 Stars Out Of 5October 24, 2006JenI thought the book had one good character - Stella DeMuer. The other main characters were boring and seemed one dimensional. The author mentions in the back of the book that she wanted to write a "lighter fare" novel, and that is exactly how it reads - as a very lightweight, boring story.
S Guyer5 Stars Out Of 5July 28, 2005S GuyerLoved it. Loved the characters, especially the lady with the cat.Now that I would like to see. I'm still trying to figure that one out. How she got that cat to ... I'll never know. Enjoy.

Dawn Katucki4 Stars Out Of 5May 10, 2003Dawn KatuckiI really enjoyed the story. There was a lot in Tess's struggle to come to the end of herself and give control to God that many of us career women can relate to. However, I found many typographical errors in the book that were distracting. I wish the publisher had done better work proofreading the text before going to press.
