Bumpy Landings by Donald J. Carey
I am excited to participate in Don Carey's blog tour for his new book, Bumpy Landings. A few years ago I was lucky enough to do an edit on the original manuscript and I've been looking forward to reading the finished copy.
In order to get into the mood of the story, I made myself a pan of pani popo (a coconut bread mentioned in the book) and settled in to read the story. The exploits of Jordan MacDonald immediately caught my interest as I wondered how he would get out of the problems he was creating for himself. It was interesting to read a romance from the guy's point of view for a change.
What I really enjoyed in Bumpy Landings was the sense of place Don created. I have never had the opportunity to visit Hawaii but the descriptions in the book made the setting come alive. His characters were also well written and interesting. This is definitely a book I would recommend to friends. I would also suggest you try the pani popo. It is amazing.
