In this "coming of age in middle age" love story, forty-something Nola Stevens slices open the afternoon mail and rips apart her secure, but tedious, life in Seattle. Twenty-three years ago, she moved from her father’s house to her husband’s house, never pausing long enough to acquaint herself with the woman she saw in the mirror every day. But now her marriage is over. Her ex-husband has moved on, leaving Nola parked on her friend Malia’s sofa bed until further notice. When Malia is summoned home to Maui for her father’s seventy-fifth birthday, she persuades Nola to come along. Hawaii astounds her—non-stop sunshine, aloha spirit, and a half-naked sculptor who challenges her see it all, do it all, and love it all. “Mai Tai Butterfly” is a three-fold love story: love of a place, love of a man, and the love of 'living aloha' that makes Hawaii the best place on Earth to start over.

5.0 von 5 Sternen FUN ROMANCE! 18. Juni 2012
Von Kass - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This story grabbed me from the beginning, perhaps because I am a fifty-something woman. The protagonist is living a middle-aged woman's worst nightmare-she discovers her husband is having an affair. Her best friend whisks her away from it all, to the friend's family home in Hawaii. As Nola gets caught up in the trials and tribulations of her friend's family, she finds healing and a whole lot more.

I love stories that tell us about ordinary people (like myself) who find their own unique strengths when they are challenged by life events. JoAnn Bassett does a great job in this book and the reader gets the added bonus of glimpses into the culture of native Hawaiians. I found myself, for days after finishing the book, wondering what the characters were doing. To me this is a sign of a great book, when the characters have become that real for me.

This book is really FUN. I keep it in our Hawaii condo for guests to read and get many great compliments on it. Everyone that reads it enjoys it a great deal.

I cant wait to read the next series. Thanks for taking me back to the place I love most. Your writing does just that.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A marvelous story! I loved it! 26. April 2012
Von Dafna Yee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I had a very good time reading Mai Tai Butterfly and enjoyed it thoroughly. I have never been to Maui (or Seattle either, for that matter), but the imagery in this story was so vivid and realistic that I felt like if I were placed there right now, I would only need a direction or two to find my way around. (i especially liked the descriptions of the sunrises and sunsets.) All the characters seemed like real people with clearly defined personalities which were three-dimensional and well fleshed out. Nola (or Noelani) is a very sweet person and Aiden is positively scrumptious. The dialogue was wonderful as well as authentic. (I don't usually like foreign words interspersed in English sentences, but not only was this done very well, there is a glossary at the end of the book.) The story was very well-written with a smooth, flowing style and the editing was well done with only a few minor mistakes.I really liked how the plot unfolded and I absolutely loved the ending. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a really good love story with some great twists and turns.

Mai Tai Butterfly by JoAnn Bassett
I love the first line of this book," My life ended with a letter bomb. It made for a quick exit--like a magician's trick: now you see her, now you don't. The limb-from-limb pain came later."
There's no doubt that Nola's twenty-five year marriage has subsided into compromise and boredom. Then she opens a correspondence from a florist meant for her husband and gets the surprise of her life. Yes, he's cheating--with another man. Which, as awful as it sounds, is also funny... well, it is when this author writes it.
Nola grabs an offer by her friend, Malia, to fly to Maui for her father's birthday celebration. And what starts out as a one week getaway, becomes a Maui transformation from Nola the caterpillar to Noelani the butterfly. She loses weight, gets tanned, healthy and in the process, learns how to stand on her own two feet. There's a pivotal scene in which Noelani says it just right, "Something stirred in me that I hadn't sensed in a long time. If I'd been home in Seattle I might have pegged it as fear. It felt a little like fear--dangerous, jumpy, with a dash of suspense. But I was pretty sure it wasn't fear because I didn't feel on whit of shame or weakness." And then, "I identified the feeling--it was courage." There's nothing better than a woman who finally gets it, right?
Of course, the path isn't straight, and Nola backslides, making this reader squirm and say, "Don't! Don't take that bastard back!" (Been there, done that!) But, then this isn't chick-lit or regency romance, it's real life, it's fun, funny and messy.
Yes, there's a hunky guy, but though Aiden is handsome and kind, he doesn't give her any slack, either. He's attracted to her, but he also insults, and challenges her to take charge.
There's also an ongoing thread running through the book that got my funny bone: A nosy neighbor spreads the rumor that Nola ran over and killed a little dog, and every time she meets a new local, she gets reminded of it. "Oh, yeah, you're the one who killed Momi's little dog." Okay, it doesn't sound so funny when I say it, but you'll have to read the book to get the punch line. It's part of what makes Maui a small town. The kind of family, kinship, everyone loves to read about and something most of us, myself included, never get to see as a tourist to the islands. Naturally, there's a very satisfying and happy ending. I loved this book.

Highly recommended read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Maui Dreaming 29. Oktober 2008
Von D. Paul - Veröffentlicht auf
What a fun read! For those of you who have visited Maui, it brings back pleasant memories, and for those who haven't been there, makes you long to visit. The story line is believable and captivating. A great read for the weekend, rainy days, or for those fortunate enough, a day at the beach.
