When Jordan MacDonald goes behind his mother’s back to get his pilot’s license, he soon finds out that a life full of dishonesty attracts more turbulence than he’s ever faced in the air. Set against the majestic backdrop of the Hawaiian islands, this heartwarming story of romance and self-discovery will take you to new heights with each turn of the page.

At 21 years old Jordan McDonald has decided he’s ready to be an adult and take on his dreams. Never mind the fact that he still lives at home with an overbearing mother who is out to control him every step of the way. Or the fact that he’s painfully stuck in socially awkward situations. He dreams of completing his pilot’s license, his deceased father’s wish for him. But he’s experiencing turbulence while navigating the paths of his life.

Set in Lai’e, Hawaii , Bumpy Landings will sweep you away with the smell of tropical flowers, Polynesian culture and mouth watering foods. Donald Carey takes you through the setting with the ease of a native. I found the book to be a wonderful break form the winter we’re having on the main land. (What I really want to know Donald…is how to you pronounce main love interest Kehau’s name?)

Bumpy Landings is a coming of age tale with just a dash of romance. The themes are ones all of us stuck between youth and adulthood experience: staying financially afloat, discovering independence, and following one’s heart. Bumpy Landings is an island gem, complete with lots of laugh out loud moments. And it’s a squeaky clean read I would recommend for all. Thanks to Donald Carey for leading me to greener pastures.
