Summary

"[An] atmospheric romance.... Gomez and Polaha’s descriptions of Hawaii are postcard worthy. The breezy pace and gorgeous setting will stoke readers’ wanderlust." (Publishers Weekly)

Book one in the From Kona with Love series depicting multicultural romance, love, loss, and redemption woven into a family saga set in the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Though connected, each installment can be listened to as a stand-alone.

After Andrea “Andie” Matthews chooses her career over a marriage proposal and then loses a promotion she worked so hard for, she jumps at the chance to take a break and help run a friend’s coffee shop. Alone in Hawaii, Andie befriends the staff and quickly grows to care for them, making her determined to revive the company. As luck would have it, she meets the mysterious Warren Yates on Christmas Eve. They share a cup of coffee, some conversation, and even a moment that leads to many more in the coming weeks. When Andie learns who Warren really is - and what he actually wants - she is torn between her feelings and his deception. But will Warren be able to win her heart back?

Transports you to the whispering trees of Hawaii

I enjoyed being transported from full, grey London to the sun-kissed shores of Hawaii. Like Hallmark movies the structure of the story was always going to go in a particular direction, but it was fleshed out in a way that you really cared about the characters. Kristoffer Pohaha narrated with a gentle intensity.

A beautifully narrated journey of Hawaii and love

Moments Like This - Book one of the ‘From Kona with Love’ series
Kristoffer Polaha’s narration of the book he coauthored with Anna Gomez is fantastic! The story takes us on a journey that is equal parts love story of Hawaii and a beautiful unfolding of complex characters that you will fall in love with and root for. The multicultural characters and authenticity and respect by which Island and Filipino culture is shared and portrayed is a breath of fresh air. I’m not typically a reader of romances and that’s good, because this is so much more than a romance novel. It is a beautifully written book that captures the essence of the two protagonists in a genuine and multidimensional way, even switching point of view from Andie to Warren so you truly see, and hear, both viewpoints. I am really looking forward to reading, and listening to, the rest of the books in this series.

Beautifully written, beautifully read.

Let the soothing voice of co-author Kristoffer Polaha sweep you away to Hawaii and into the lives of Andi and Warren, in this first book of the "From Kona With Love" series. "Moments Like This" is a feel-good romance set in Oahu with characters as colorful as the scenery. Beautifully written (and read), this is definitely worth checking out, especially if you happen to like family-friendly Hallmark-movie type romances, of which Polaha is no stranger. Seamless collaboration between Gomez and Polaha, and an excellent first foray into novels from Polaha.

Narrator ruined it.

The story was ok but the narration ruined it for me. I do not like when a man narrates and the main character is female.

Cute Story, Easy Read

Cute story, easy read. Good narration for the most part - the narrator has a great voice that is very easy to listen to. It was a little difficult to follow at some parts. I had to rewind and re-listen to catch what was said or to figure out who said what. The pacing of the book seemed a little rushed in some parts, though most of the scenes set in Hawaii were on island time. 😊 Overall, a good summer read!

I've listened five times

I will probably listen again. It carries you to warm, ocean breezes and the sweet smell of island flowers. Kristoffer's voice is a lullaby to listen to. You can't go wrong.
