If you plan a trip to the islands I'd recommend this book. You'll get a peek at all the different racial influences that make our island home a unique and wonderful place.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to dump but I want to also mention a mystery series by Ellie Griffiths, first book is The Crossing Places. I love her main character, Ruth Galloway. Excellent reading.
If I plan a trip to the islands, I'm telling you first...you know where all the good restaurants are...

I read Michener's book Hawaii many years ago and still think of parts of it, especially the contributions of different races. I'll have to check our library for the Brennert book. Thanks.

I just finished 2.
Lincoln Childs & Doug Preston's new release I waited since January 3rd for: 'Two Graves' and Lisa Gardner's 'Love You More'.
I wanted to read her newest release 'Touch & Go', but I had to read this first as the second is a result of the aftermath of the first.
Both good, but not to impressed as much as I thought I would be with the Lincoln & Childs one as I was with I think was the best one; "The Cabinet of Curiousities'. Outstanding!

Not at all! But I'm glad to have your impressions of "the other side of the story." My daughter is reading "Imperfect Justice" right now, so I'll read the other one and pass it on to her.
