She never fails to capture my attention and keep me reading to the end. I have enjoyed all of her books, and Under a Mauii Moon is no exception. The couple in this book, Carissa and Richard find themselves in a common situation where their relationship is in trouble, and it is fascinating to see how Robin works them through it.

Funny thing is, my husband and I had a very similar Maui experience with our marriage and beautiful Hawaii really helps clear my thoughts and bring me back the wonderous power of God's intervention. This book was a great escape.

This one... not so much. Here is why...
While the story was detailed and exotic regarding her visit to Hawaii, the heart of the story through the middle of the book was lacking. Part of it probably had to do with the anemic betrayal on her end. She sort of popped her big toe into the waters of temptation for about one second, then pulled back and behaved herself. This seems to be typical of most of Christian fiction, which is why so may people think Christians are perfect and they feel that they could never be that way, so they don't even try. But that's an aside...
Not that I was wanting her to do wrong, but I didn't find it very believable that she was so controlled in her behavior, because the anger she had toward him at first was pretty gripping and dare I say a bit justified. Then it just dissipated. I think the transition from pain to healing was a bit too fast and too tidy. The beginning was compelling where I sensed the emotional tension and betrayal, and the ending was tender and sweet, but the middle felt a bit too much like a detour into a vacation with a tour guide, and I found myself asking "where is the story here?" But maybe that is just me. I didn't feel connected to the characters this novel. Beautiful cover, lots of potential, but just didn't grab me. Sorry.
Ane MulliganSuwanee, GAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5September 23, 2010Ane MulliganSuwanee, GAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleUnder a Maui Moon is like taking a mini vacation as Robin Jones Gunn sweeps you away to the islands of Hawaii. A master of ambiance, Gunn allowed me to smell the ocean, hear its roar, and feel the tropics as I read. Following Carissa poignant journey, as she examines her marriage and life, makes Under a Maui Moon a read that women of all ages will enjoy. It's a good reminder that God, even when He seems far away, is on time and on hand. Novel Journey and I recommend Under a Maui Moon, especially if you need a vacation and can't go away.
