Love and Ohana Drama

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  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?

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  If you want to read a good book with a crazy family, look no further! I am not sure how Cora can be the only sane person (besides her loving grandpa), but she clearly is the "normal" one.  I loved all the crazy people in her family, especially her mother (coconut bras!).  What I really liked about Love and Ohana Drama is Cora becames more vocal as the book progressed and stands up for herself at all the right times. 

I found Love and Ohana Drama to be full of hilarious scenes with a great cast of crazy characters.  Oh course you can't "love" in the title and not have a little steam tossed in too.  If you are looking for a nice, warm, sunny place to retreat to while reading - go on this adventure to Hawaii.  You won't regret it and will have a great laugh while visiting (reading). Don't forget your grass skirt!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I am a fan of Melissa Baldwin's work.  I have read her Love in the City series.  I really want to read Broadway series and Seasons of Summer series.

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 seventeen 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.
