We love a good, clean Hallmark love story, especially when it is set in a gorgeous destination and populated with characters who are easy to like. In Aloha With Love, one of the channel’s favorite screenwriters, Terence Brody, joins forces with author Lindy Miller to present a feel-good story about a young woman who inherits a dilapidated Victorian house in Hawaii where she must work with her sister and an annoying contractor to restore the building to its former glory.

Kat Martin is one of our longtime favorite authors. For us, she ranks up there with Catherine Coulter, Sandra Brown, and Iris Johansen for always providing great suspense with just the right amount of romance thrown in for good measure.

These stories always thrill and keep you glued to every page, until you discover that you very likely consumed the book in one sitting. To tease your literary taste buds, we are excited to offer you this glimpse into the newest chapters of Martin’s ongoing saga. Enjoy! —J&H
