Sisterchicks Do the Hula - by Robin Jones Gunn
Hope and Laurie have been best friends since college - when they first made plans to travel to Hawaii together. That plan fell through, but now, as they approach their 40th birthdays, they have reconnected and decide that now is the time to do it. While enjoying the beautiful sites the islands have to offer, they also find themselves digging a little deeper into what they've been made for by the One who created such beauty for them to enjoy.
This was the first Sisterchicks book I've read. It was light, it was enjoyable; Hope and Laurie weren't especially deep characters, but that's what I was expecting when I started the book. I loved the idea of two friends turning 40 and taking a trip of a lifetime together to enjoy the trip their way. It didn't quite ring true that Hope would be concerned about the price of a "bargain" sun tanning lotion, versus the "expensive" one, but then order room service over and over again without blinking an eye, but if you suspend some disbelief and just enjoy the trip with them, then the book is a fun read. It certainly made me wish I could take a trip like this!
I give this book 3 stars. It didn't exceed any expectations, but it was a light, easy read. There's a time and a place for such a book, and this was a good time for one for me.
