Okay, I want you to think of a vacation that you've taken that made you think that you've just had the worse possible vacation ever. Times that by one hundred and you have the book Here Today, Gone To Maui by Carol Snow.

Meet Jane Shea. She's your typical "Plain Jane". She works a steady job, , she has a great boyfriend, Jimmy, who is taking her on luxury vacation to Maui, and she makes sure that her apartment is always in tip top shape. So a luxurious trip to Maui is just what she needs. Of course the closer the trip comes, the more she worries about losing her luggage, missing the flight, flight delays and pretty much everything else that she can think of. The one thing, though, that she doesn't worry about is the one thing she should. And, that would be losing her boyfriend, Jimmy.

Before Jane can even start to enjoy Maui, Jimmy comes up missing. That's the start of the longest and strangest week that you could even imagine! Jane goes from perfect vacation to pretty much hell on earth to her. Everything you thought you knew is going to change.

Carol Snow is now in my favorite author category. I have read a few books by her before and really enjoyed them, but it's like she just keeps getting better! Here Today, Gone To Maui had me hooked from the first page. I was fascinated with Jane and this trip of a lifetime. Ms. Snow's writing is dangerously good and makes you want more. I seriously can't rave about this book enough. Just when you think you know, she changes it on you and that's the type of writing that is irresistible. Now, I guess I'll go and sit and patiently wait (NOT! lol) for her next book. Carol, please don't keep me waiting!

If you're looking for a fun, fluffy read on a sunny day or at the beach, this is the book. The main character is witty, neurotic, and repressed, and the series of events that befalls her while on vacation in Maui is a true string of bad luck. Some of them we can even relate to. As a bonus, if you've been to Maui, the descriptions of the places to go and things to do are spot on (especially the details about the Hyatt Regency on Kaanapali Beach and the Grand Wailea on Wailea). And who doesn't love sea turtles and whales?

A vacation in the paradise of Maui with her boyfriend - what could be better! And with all of Jane's well-made plans, what could possibly go wrong? Well, for starters their reservation at a Hyatt resort disappears. And then her boyfriend disappears. And that's just the beginning of a vacation that Jane will never forget.

I picked this book up from the library because I need books set in Hawaii. I was a little leary because it's basically chick lit. and I'm not usually a fan of chick lit - but the plot looked cute.

What can I say? I loved it! It was a really fun book. I started reading shortly after 10PM, and didn't stop until I finished the book about 3:30AM. I idenitified with Jane, who like me is detail oriented, makes lists, and plans obsessively. So it was fun to see what happened to her when all of her plans fell apart.

This is such a consuming book. I didn't see any of what happens in the book coming, which I loved. It was intriguing and I recommend! It's by far the best of Carol Snow's (adult) novels, and I'd know, as I've read them all to date.
