An Unexpected Gift release week fun

“She does what?”

Kiana in An Unexpected Gift is a closet internet video gamer. It is how she decompresses at the end of a long day.

I don’t know about you; after a long day, interacting with anyone in any capacity seems more like a chore than something to help me decompress. “People-ing” is not an activity I enjoy all the time anyway, so even putting on clunky headphones and chatting with people I don’t know has less appeal. 

“But Melissa, you came up with the idea.”

Yes, I did. I wanted something different for my character that I had yet to tap into, but I’m getting off track. 

What do I do to decompress at the end of the day? If I’m not reading, I play a game on my tablet. Either “Township” or “Cube Block” (which is like Tetris – do you remember that game?) because they are both puzzle-esk games that help my over-active brain settle down. I confess that I’m dozing off in my chair within ten minutes of starting the game.

Boring, right?

So, how about you? How do you settle the brain and body at the end of the day?

An Unexpected Gift

Something’s up in Suamalie, and it’s looking like love!

When Kiana, Lulu, and Meilani decide it’s time for the islands to have affordable wedding options, Something Suamalie becomes the marriage of skills, friendship, and wedding splendor on the islands.

Cruising around the island on a Moped in a business suit may seem incongruous, but Kiana knows how to blend practicality and professionalism, a strong work ethic, and relaxation. With no time for mistakes or changes in plans, she’s also decided to forgo romance (for herself). There just isn’t enough time in the day. That is until the early arrival of one of the groomsmen of Something Suamalie’s first booking throws everything off balance, including her thoughts on long-distance dating.

Beau was perfectly content with his job and the growing attraction to a girl back home; however, he hadn’t figured in the sassy and sometimes unprofessional wedding planner. Seeing her world begin to unravel while she and her partners fumble with their first weddings tugs at his heartstrings and leaves him second-guessing his choices in the romance department.

She’s a study in opposites. He’s attracted. So now what do they do?

Take a trip to the Suamalie Islands where palm trees sway, the sand and sea pulse with life, and the people will steal your heart.
