Book Info
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 Review:
Lisa Carter's novel, "Aloha Rose," is part of the Quilts of Love series and this book is one of my favorites that I have read so far in the series! Laney thought that she had found her forever family; however she upholds her promise to her adoptive mother that she will seek her biological family.  With the help of her adoptive father posting a picture of the quilt that Laney was wrapped in when she was found, Laney sets off for Hawaii to meet her family.  Laney is greeted by Kai, whom was taken in as a foster child by Laney's aunt and he is set to protect his family and is no sure of Laney and her motives.  Kai and Laney both have issues to deal with from their past that they must confront and work through for themselves, but as they spend time together they realize that they are alike in many ways and that their hearts are realizing this too as they are being drawn together.  This book has such a beautiful setting that is described with vivid detail, and filled with characters whom are hurting and searching for answers and closure and most importantly love and a family. "Aloha Rose" is a well-written, sweet story that is easy to get into and one that will be loved!

About the book: Annie's life is deliciously full as the Christmas season approaches. She helps her husband, Samuel, attend to the community's minor medical needs. She occasionally assists Belinda, the local midwife, and most days, she finds herself delivering the buggy to her brother Adam. Annie's sister-in-law Leah is due to deliver their first child before Christmas morning, and Annie is determined to finish a crib quilt before the boppli arrives. With six weeks to go, she should have no problem . . . but God may have a different plan. Leah is rushed to the English hospital when the infant arrives early, and Annie discovers the Christmas quilt may hold a far greater significance than she ever imagined.

My Review:
 Vanetta Chapman's "The Christmas Quilt" is also part of the Quilts of Love series and this is an emotional read that will draw you completely into the story and the characters' lives.  Annie and Leah are friends and sisters-in-law.  Annie is attempting to make a quilt for Leah as she is soon to deliver; however things do not go as they thought and Leah is hospitalized.  Annie with her nursing background goes to the hospital and there she and Leah spend hours together working on the quilt and also sharing their hearts.  Although life is not going according to Leah or Annie's plan, it is going according to God's plan and this Christmas season with be a time of healing and love with the help of the Christmas quilt. I really enjoyed this book!  Many issues are addressed and the characters are so real that it is so easy to become engrossed in their lives and empathize with them.  I love the significance of the quilt and the stories behind the squares and the healing that this piece of work and love provides.  This is an excellent addition to the series!
