Hawaii was the last place Grace Christiansen ever imagined she'd vacation, much less fall in love. But when her family surprises her with a cooking retreat in paradise, she is pulled - or maybe yanked - away from her predictable, safe life and thrown headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime.
Max Sharpe may make his living on the ice as a pro hockey player, but he feels most at home in the kitchen - which is why he lives for the three-week culinary vacation he takes each year in Hawaii. Upon being paired with Grace for a cooking competition, Max finds himself drawn to her passion, confidence, and perseverance. But just when Grace dares to dream of a future beyond her hometown, Max pulls away.
Wrestling with personal demons, Max fights against opening his heart to a love he knows he should never hope for. And as his secrets unfold, Grace is torn between the safe path in front of her and what her heart truly desires. If love means sacrificing her ideal happily ever after, Grace's faith will face its toughest test yet.

Love this Family!
Love the Story
Yes, I have enjoyed the light romances written by Susan May Warren.
Casper is my favorite character. He and I are both middle children, and I know how it is to be overlooked, even though I have special gifts and talents.
Oh, my goodness! She could enunciate the "t's" in the second syllable of words. For example, she pronounces, certainly, as cer-un-ly, tighten, as tie-un. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. EVERY. SINGLE. WORD. I find it difficult to believe an editor hasn't told her how to pronounce those words!!!
I have enjoyed the Christiansen Family series...but, the narrator drives me crazy. Her voice is great, but the "t's"....it drives me crazy.
