When Laney Carrigan sets out to find her birth family, her only clue is the Hawaiian quilt—a red rose snowflake appliquéd on a white background—in which she was found wrapped as an infant.

Centering her search on the Big Island and battling fears of rejection, Laney begins a painstaking journey toward her true heritage.

Kai Barnes, however, is determined to protect the people he’s come to regard as family. He thinks Laney is nothing more than a gold digger and blocks every move she makes toward her Hawaiian family.

As their conflict escalates, it puts at risk the one thing that Kai and Laney both want most—a family.

I absolutely love love love this series of Quilts of Love books from Abingdon Press and Lisa Carter’s “Aloha Rose” is a delightful addition!!!
This book is the perfect getaway!
Lisa’s writing style is glorious!
I loved just taking in all of the scenery- beautiful descriptive!
I couldn’t stop reading- I had to find out what would happen to Laney in her search for family and I loved the connection with Kai.
This story is rich in themes of family, love and exotic locale!
I look forward to reading more of Lisa’s books.
