What Readers Have to Say

“Wow, a very big applause to you for writing such an awesome book. Myself, my hubby and our 2 teenagers got a copy of your book before heading to Kauai. We had never been to Hawaii before. I read it front to back before leaving. It was so full of helpful information that it is a must read for anyone going there. Your tips were right on every time. We ate at places that we probably would not have tried if not for your book and loved them. Directions getting around the island were also very, very helpful. Very easy to read directions and the maps are the best I have used. Whenever I hear of someone else heading for the Islands I immediately tell them to get a hold of one of your books and how right on their are… It was our Kauai Bible while we were there. We never went anywhere without it.”
