But, like a large wave on the brink of breaking, her life is about to crash out of control. A proposal of marriage, a conniving grandmother, a cryptic Asian woman, and a handsome guest, and suddenly everything calm begins to churn, everything clear becomes confused, and all that was normal segues into peculiar.
As Lani struggles against the current to hold her ground, she realizes that she can either continue to fight and eventually lose, or take a take a leap of faith, hold her breath, and ride the wave wherever it takes her.
***This book is part of the Power of the Matchmaker series that features one recurring character—the match maker—but it is a STAND-ALONE novel.***
** from Book Blast Tours **
What I liked: Overall, I enjoyed Not Always Happenstance I really felt like I understood Lani and felt very protective of her. Easton, though, I didn’t like very much. I also kept wondering why he was so selfish and arrogant, his family seems so normal.
I think my favorite parts of the book included Pearl (the matchmaker), Cora (Lani’s grandmother), or Lani’s friends. They gave Not Always Happenstance that extra dimension that, for me, is necessary in a good book.
What I didn’t like: It was very hard for me to enjoy Not Always Happenstance, I kept waiting for the book to be stressful and for fulfillment to cryptic comments to become reality. It never happened, but waiting made my experience less than it would have been.
