Mandy Frey and 3 other girlfriends decide to take a cruise to Hawaii before deciding whether to join the Amish church. Mandy leaves behind boyfriend Gideon whom she is considering marrying. While visiting Maui Mandy and her friend Ellen miss getting back to the cruise ship before it leaves for another port. They are stranded on Maui but get to know a couple who takes them in while their families come up with the funds to bring them home. Mandy meets a boy there and is not sure whether she is fascinated with him or with the island vibe.
While I do not read romance fiction, I did enjoy this novel. There was a lot of Hawaiiana to keep me captivated and the romance aspect intrigued me. I may try some other Amish fiction books to see how I like them.
