Fiction Hawaii Books Published in March of 2009 TITLE: Honolulu
AUTHOR: Alan Brennert
PUBLISHER: St. Martin's Press
DATE PUBLISHED: March 3, 2009 (estimate)
BINDING: Paperback
PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: "Honolulu" is the richly imagined story of Jin, a young picture bride who leaves her native Korea - where girls are so little valued that she is known as Regret - and journeys to Hawaii in 1914 in search of a better life. Instead of the prosperous young husband and the chance at an education she has been promised, Jin is quickly married off to a poor, embittered labourer who takes his disappointments out on his new wife, forcing her to make her own way in a strange land. Struggling to build a business with the help of her fellow picture brides, Jin finds both opportunity and prejudice, but ultimately transforms herself from a naive young girl into a resourceful woman. Prospering along with her adopted city, which is fast growing from a small territorial capital to the great multicultural city it is today, Jin can never forget the people she left behind in Korea, and returns one last time to make her peace with her former life. With its passionate knowledge of people and places in Hawaii far off the tourist track, "Honolulu" is a spellbinding story of the triumphs and sacrifices of the human spirit that is sure to become another reading group favourite.

AUTHOR: HelenKay Dimon
DATE PUBLISHED: March 31, 2009 (estimate)
BINDING: Paperback
PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: Cassie Montgomery was in no mood for messing Around - until she got an eyeful of the sizzling-hot miscreant breaking into her half-brother Dan’s Hawaii home. Turns out he’s not a criminal, but a friend who’s just as suspicious of Dan’s "accidental" death as she is. Cassie’s beyond tired of bashing heads with thick-skulled local law enforcement, so there’s only one thing for it: team up with Caleb Wilson, and try to keep her secrets - and hands - to herself. Having a gun trained on him is nothing new for Cal. But when said gun is brandished by a goddess sporting short-shorts, a bad attitude, and a hidden agenda? A man should consider his choices very carefully. Option one: Seduce first, ask questions later. Option two: Find out why she’s in his Air Force buddy’s torn-up house, then seduce her. Option three: Let the islands do their work and let the woman behind the weapon seduce him...
