Aubree Lane has this innate way of taking a totally screwed up, dysfunctional family and weaves them into this loving, unconditional accepting group you can't help but fall in love with!
Her latest doesn't disappoint.
After reading Early One Morning, I waited with baited breath for, perhaps a "Late One Night" - but it didn't happen. Instead, she took the Early characters and gave us Winter in Waianae, adding even more lovable characters into the mix. It can be read as a standalone, but I do recomm

I absolutely adored this book. I read it in a matter of hours. I HAD to keep turning pages to see what happened next.

As soon as Brittany turns 18 she flees from her abusive home, buys a ticket to Hawaii to reunite with her estranged half-sister Annie, her husband Terence and their eclectic family. Since she and Annie have barely spoken in recent years, she has no idea what her reception will be, but Annie and her family welcome Brittany with open arms.

Bravo Aubree Lane!! This sequel to Early One Morning (don't worry it can be read as a stand alone) was magical.. When Brittany shows up on her sisters door steps (in Hawaii) everyone is surprised.. The sisters did not have a very good childhood and Brittany decides to make the move and see how she is accepted by her sister..(they aren't very close) this very original "family" will capture your heart.. The Mysterious Mr. Kaplinger is staying at Annie's Husbands Aunt Lena's bed and breakfast, unex ...more

Aubree Lane weaves a whimsical tale with plenty of romance, mystery, and relationship dynamics. Winter in Waianae doesn't have a dull moment to be found. Each page is full of excitement as it carried me through with intrigue from start to finish.

I love that I had no idea where Ms. Lane was taking this story. There's twists and turns in various angles that kept me guessing and shocked as I read along. The characters are a great mix. I love a good story where there are dysfunctional connections an

Winter in Waianae is book two in the Love in Oahu series, it could be read as a stand alone, but would be better if read in order.
When Brittany saves up enough money she goes to the one person she thinks she can turn to even though it has been a long time since they have last seen each other. Not sure of the reception she will receive when she arrives she doesn't let her sister Annie know she is coming.
Grady is the boy across the street from Annie and since his parents died, she has welcomed hi

Brittany Southerland has made the escape from her parents and left for Hawaii to be with her sister, Annie Javier. Annie lives their with her husband Terence, son Max and step-daughter Erika. Brittany feels instantly wanted and included in their family but still wants to do her share without overstepping any boundaries.

At the same time as her arrival, spinner dolphins also arrive and they seem to have a magical effect on everything around them and their is definitely mystery in the air.

Lovely tale that has one wondering if the legend of the spinner dolphins was true or not. The mystery and the interactions of various characters with each other has a beauty and delicacy largely not found in the average romance/mystery plot. Surprising twists kept the interest keen. As the mystery unfolds, as the perpetrators are revealed, all settles into place but one question remains: Is the legend of the spinner Dolphins true? Is the myste

Winter in Waianae by Aubree Lane another great book by Aubree Lane. I loved reading about this eccentric family. They are a group of people that love and care about each other. I loved reading about the blossoming relationships as well as the more solid relationships. Brittany left San Diego to go see her sister Annie in Hawaii. I loved reading about Grady and Annie's new relationship, and what they could do together when they show each other love and trust. This was an amazing book and I absolu ...more

I am a brand new fan of Aubree Lane books. Winter In Waianae was my first book of hers, and I am hooked! The characters were so real and the book was very well written. I didn't guess "who done it" til I read who it was. There was romance, mystery, setting, depth, and just a hint of paranormal all rolled into a wonderful story about a loving family that should have been complete dysfunctional, but made things work and loved each other unconditionally. I hope to read the rest of Aubree's writing ...more

Extremely well done sequel. The family is not your run of the mill average bunch. The inclusion on the young neighbor across the street has added more to the mix than anyone might have expected. Add a relative from Annie's side of the family and all becomes exponentially more complicated. Enter the spinner things are really confused. Throw a bit of magic into the pot and the stew is to die for.

I love this book, the setting and the characters were amazing. This book had many unique components to it. From the unusual dynamics of a loving family to the luck of the Spinner Dolphins. This book was well written which does not surprise me at all. So far this is my favorite book by Aubree.
