A taste of paradise from Melissa Baldwin...plus special giveaway

Today we are pleased to have Melissa Baldwin back at CLC to feature Love and Ohana Drama. Check out Sara's review from last summer. As part of Melissa's blog tour, Rachel's Random Resources has a $20 Amazon gift card to give away!

Melissa Baldwin is a planner-obsessed Disney fan who still watches Beverly Hills 90210 reruns and General Hospital

She’s a wife, mother, and journal keeper, who finally decided to write the book she talked about for years. She took her dream to the next level, and is now an award-winning, bestselling author of nineteen Romantic Comedy and Cozy Mystery novels and novellas. Melissa writes about charming, ambitious, and real women, and she considers these leading ladies to be part of her tribe.

When she isn't deep in the writing zone, this multitasking master organizer keeps busy by spending time with her family, chauffeuring her daughter, traveling, attempting yoga poses, and going on rides at Disney World.

Love and Ohana Drama is a romantic comedy that explores the challenges of family dynamics and reminds readers that there is always hope for a second chance. Sometimes the most challenging situations bring the most happiness . . .

Twenty-something Cora Fletcher is a book-loving public relations executive who lives with her overly Zen best friend and attention-loving cat. Newly single and focusing on her exciting career, she feels like she’s in a good place. She's even been invited on an all-expenses-paid Hawaiian vacation! The only catch—it’s a family reunion . . . and her family can be a lot to handle.

Cora vows to not let that get in the way, but even before the family has boarded the plane, the ohana drama begins. As usual, there's the sister-in-law who is bent on causing friction, the self-centered cousins, and the aunt who loves to party a bit too much. Her mother has filled the itinerary with endless activities, and she's even invited Cora’s ex-boyfriend in an attempt to get them back together.

Although she feels overwhelmed, Cora gets a blast from her past that could impact her life forever. This is one welcome reunion she did not expect . . .

Will Cora make it through a week of family togetherness? And will she be able to say aloha to someone she thought was out of her life forever?

I love hearing from my readers. One of the compliments that made me smile recently-- "Melissa Baldwin never lets me down. Her writing is witty, hilarious and always totally and completely swoon worthy!”

How is Cora similar to or different from you? 
Like me-- Cora loves to read, she’s low maintenance and loyal. 
Different from me—Cora is a cat person, she considers skipping a trip to Hawaii—something I would never do. ☺

"Hawaii," "We are Family," "Family Affair," "Over the Rainbow," "Hawaiian Wedding Song," "I Could Fall in Love," "Love Story," "Crazy in Love."

 My husband and I just binged Cobra Kai. So good.
