Hawaii may be the island of romance according to the travel brochures, but for Keeley Baker-Kekuhi, lately it's been anything but. She's broke, stuck in a dead-end job studying an extinct volcano-and her husband, Kam, has just dumped her for a hula dancer. Even worse, he's now demanding custody of their four-year-old son. No wonder she's about to throw in the towel on love.
But things are looking up. Enter Ian Gardiner, an artist rep whose boyish good looks catch Keeley's eye. A true gentleman, he's sweet, thoughtful, romantic-and nothing like Kam, who just wants to surf and watch TV all day. Plus, Ian's crazy for Keeley. But is he just too good to be true? Kam was perfect for Keeley once, too. Does she have the heart, much less the energy, to try again?
Flip-Flopped is a quirky and charming story of Keeley's adventures as she faces single motherhood, a fierce custody battle, a divorce lawyer who can't seem to leave the Summer of Love long enough to focus on Keeley's case, her duties as maid of honor for her best friend's wedding-and a once dormant volcano that's suddenly about to blow.
With witty, laugh-out-loud detail, Jill Smolinski serves up smart, spot-on observations about love and relationships, and ultimately shows that life's eruptions can often lead to bigger and better things.
