Moments Like This is just the ticket if you’re itching for exotic armchair travel. It is also the perfect read for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
Following a broken engagement and a missed promotion, Andie’s life has imploded. Her entire life is her work, and exhaustion and stress finally take their toll; she wakes up in the hospital and learns she collapsed.
Andie’s parents and Api, her only remaining friend, stage an intervention, urging her to slow her breakneck pace. Andie reluctantly agrees and heads to Hawaii, where her only job is to help run Api’s sleepy coffee shop.
Unable to do anything at half-speed, Andie throws herself into getting the cafe back in the black. She quickly falls in love with the island and its people. As she is closing the store on Christmas Eve, a last-minute customer arrives, and their connection is immediate.
Warren has his own baggage, and the two agree they will spend time together with no strings, living only in the present; neither will delve into the other’s past.
The town of Kailua-Kona is a character in its own right in Moments Like This. While a generous dollop of description can be a delightful accent or an annoying distraction to the plot, Anna Gomez and Kristoffer Polaha balance the two with the grace of a surfer catching a wave. The result is a love story to Hawaii you won’t soon forget.
