About this Book:
Some dreams take a while before they come true. Best friends Hope and Laurie never made it to Hawaii during their college years. But when they’re about to turn forty, the islands still beckon, and off they go – with an unexpected stowaway on board (Hope happens to be seven months pregnant). A little pineapple, a little sunshine, and a surprising little surfing lesson give these two sisterchicks all their crazy hearts could hope for – and more – as they enter the next season of their lives with a splash and with a beautiful vision of what God has dreamed up for them.
Wherever there’s chocolate, there’s sure to be a sisterchick celebrating, and this trip to Hawaii is no exception. Best friends Hope and Laurie are on an audacious mission to commemorate their fortieth birthdays in style. Surfing and sailing, sushi and snorkeling—these two macadamia nuts from the mainland sample it all, unhindered by a surprise little stowaway.

This is just one of those stories that just makes you feel good! Reading it helped me escape to Hawaii along with Hope and Laurie. I really liked Hope, she was going through a major life changing event but she was taking all in stride. Her love for God’s creation was inspiring. As a photographer I also could relate with Laurie. It was encouraging to watch both of them grow and accept the challenges they were facing.
This story made me laugh and at times cry. It was very easy to visual the scenes as the author described the girls’ adventures. The author also added some interesting history about Hawaii that added a meaning to the story and helped the characters see the true meaning of many of the tourist sights. It made me want to visit Hawaii all the more.
This is an easy read that allows the reader to escape the troubles of the world and just enjoy reading a book. There are pearls of wisdom in the story that give it depth. I hope to read more of the Sisterchicks!
