"A sweet, closed-door, multicultural romance [that] will resonate with readers." ~Booklist



“[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 depicts multicultural romance, love, loss, and redemption woven into a family saga set in the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Though connected, each installment can be read as a standalone.

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, which leads to many more in the coming weeks.

But when Andie learns who Warren really is—and what he actually wants—she is torn between her feelings and his deception.

Will Warren be able to win her heart back?

  • “Anna Gomez and Kristoffer Polaha craft a compelling, clean romance that centers not just on business ambitions, but the impact of deception, honesty, and change in relationships. Its story of love, not giving up, trust, and reinventing one's life grips readers with promise and hope for a different future. Moments Like This is highly recommended for romance readers looking for an exploration of the fine line between a woman's strength and her ability to accept the vulnerability and promise of love.”
    ~D. Donovan, Senior Editor, Midwest Book Review

  • “I absolutely adored this book. The characters all have their flaws, which I love because it makes the story realistic. The journey they go on to find themselves and to live again is beautiful. Coupled with the attention to detail for the different locales in Hawaii made me feel like I was there.”
