She’s about to fulfill her dream to marry and raise a family, until her fiancé breaks up with her by text three days before the wedding. She takes her honeymoon anyway, and flies out of her safe life into unexpected adventure, when she finds a mysterious thumb drive left on the plane. Jared Sanders, singer and healing evangelist, idol of teens, is on the verge of fame and fortune. Jared doubts his manager’s claim he’s in his destiny. On his way to perform at a concert, Jared disappears and travels incognito to Honolulu, Hawaii to seek God’s will for his life. Raised by parents who withheld their love unless he achieved according to their expectations, he doesn’t intend to fall in love, and hides his true identity from Abby. Abby and Jared are drawn to each other as they work together with a local ministry to Waikiki’s homeless. A New Age organization holds a convention in the hotel. The leader falsely claims to have miraculous powers, parting the gullible from their money. Confronting evil exacts a high price. Will it cost Abby and Jared their future hope to serve God together? Faced with Jared’s deception, will Abby dare risk her heart again.

Only an expert writer could create such an unusual title and still compose a story that fully honors God. Fun, serious, romantic, dangerous, with disappointments and successes, Lorna Wood’s story will captivate readers of light Christian romances.
Abby Walker, lifetime clumsy klutz, was dumped by her fiancé three days before their wedding. She’d won a two-week, all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii, which was supposed to be their honeymoon. Her friend, Sara, planned to accompany Abby on the trip, instead of John Smith, ex-husband-to-be, but misses the flight. The hotel checks Abby in as Mrs. Smith.
Jared Sanders, well-known singing star and evangelist, needs time to seek God away from his fans and controlling manager. He checks incognito into a hotel in Hawaii as Jared Smith.
The two unwittingly find themselves in the same suite. Abby can’t reach the contest officials to change her room and can’t afford to pay on her own...
I enjoyed reading about the characters in this book - everyone with his or her own personality. I enjoyed even more seeing the characters change by the circumstances of their lives and learn to change the circumstances of their lives. I realize there are two phrases the same in the sentence above, but in the first phrase the circumstances are doing the changes and in the second the characters are doing the changing. Whatever your Christian background and beliefs I think you will enjoy "watching" these two people grow. the love interest is sweet and innocent.
The setting of this cute book is delightful. Having visited Hawaii once, I enjoyed reliving those great tourist spots in Honolulu as the plot develops. It's well written and I was introduced to a new author I will look for again.
