So, now it's time for some truth. I published this book a month ago and I forgot to update the blog. I have no excuse except I started back to teaching and teaching is pretty all-consuming.
That said, I have another confession. When I planned the FBI series, I planned to never have Peyton go anywhere that I didn't go. So far I've held true to that.
Until this book.
I've never been to Hawaii, never been to Kauai. This entire book is written from research and staring at maps for hours, and reading tourist books that my parents brought back with them when they went to Kauai themselves.
The Koloa Grove Resort is fictional as is Paolo's Crab Shack, although I like to think there's a little restaurant like that on the beach with Nani and Boomer sitting in the surf, telling stories.
I fully intend to go to Kauai one day; it's definitely on the bucket list, and when I do, I want to have Peyton and Marco's goals: sun, fun and Mai Tais.
