This book was by far the best of this series. I was hesitant at the start of the series but you could probably even start here as your first book since they don’t actually connect any characters along the way.
Leilani has had a tough time of it. She’s taken gave of her resentful mother for some time and now that she’s passed away, she’s taken her ashes to be spread over her homeland – Hawaii. The timing couldn’t be better since it is Christmas and she’s alone. A mysterious letter from a long lost relative only gives her more inspiration to travel back “home.” Through some sort of divine intervention, she ends up winning an upgraded stay, getting a wonderfully entertaining and energetic tour guide, and getting trapped in an elevator with a sexy guy. OK, so maybe she didn’t’ want to get trapped in an elevator, but it certainly doesn’t end up hurting.
For Kale, getting trapped in that elevator is just what his newly single, overworked soul needs. Leilani has a spirit that warms all those around her. He finds himself sucked into her world and easily accepts his new role. She quickly finds her old family, new family, and a lot of drama, too! There’s a bit of action, some bad people, but this story had me smiling and laughing, enjoying the true “spirit of Christmas.” If you’re looking for a good story to read around the holidays, this is it!
