Book Review: Tropical Kiss or Miss

Happy Wednesday, reader friends! Today I’m delighted to share with you my review of Tropical Kiss or Miss (Tropical Kisses #1) by Liwen Y. Ho! I so enjoyed this fantastic novella! Be sure to check out this awesome story!

About the Book

Therapist Olivia Chan can’t wait to escape it all—a failed marriage, a struggling practice, and her son Micah’s recent health scare. The Hawaiian getaway she planned, however, gets rained on—quite literally—by a tropical storm and the unexpected arrival of her estranged husband Matthew, who’s determined to win her back.

Forced to confront the past, will Olivia and Matt learn to love again? The fear of rejection is great, but God’s grace is greater. With the help of their son’s prayers, this marriage might just weather life’s storms and come out for the better.

A Christian romance novella from the Amazon bestselling Kisses, Kids and Bundles of Joy boxed set, now with a never-before-published bonus scene from Olivia and Matt’s college days!

My Thoughts:

What a beautiful second chance romance, and marriage reconciliation story!
I’ve read and loved several of Liwen Y. Ho’s books and she is fast becoming one of my favorite authors! I absolutely loved this story! Matt and Olivia were such great characters, I loved them from the first scene on and I was rooting for them through the whole story! I also loved Micah, and the last chapter from his POV was absolutely darling!
This awesome story is told through flash backs and flash forwards, and while it took me a few minutes to get used to this storytelling style, as soon as I did I fell in love with it, it was perfect for this story and brilliantly written!
I loved this story from beginning to end and can’t wait to read Tropical Kiss and Tell (as well as the rest of Liwen’s backlist!)
I highly recommend Tropical Kiss or Miss! If you’re looking for an excellent quick-read romance that is full of depth, heart, and hope then this is just the right book for you!
(5 Stars!)

I grabbed this book when it was a free download on Kindle and read it for the pure pleasure of reading. No review required!
