Love Finds You In Sunset Beach Hawaii by Robin Jones Gunn* A Review

Sierra came to Sunset Beach for relaxation—not for world-class surfing
and certainly not for romance! When a wealthy friend offers Sierra Jensen a
vacation at an oceanfront beach house, she envisions a quiet retreat where she can plan her
next move. Instead, she arrives at the start of the noisy surfing competitions and is surprised to learn
that her friend had an ulterior motive—namely, introducing Sierra to Jordan Bryce, the tenant
staying below them. Jordan is a photographer whose lens and attention are focused on the surfers,
and he is not willing to let anyone get in his way of landing the next cover shot for Surf Days magazine.
Sierra and Jordan came to Sunset Beach looking for different things. But as the surf pounds the North
Shore, will they discover something better than either of them had imagined?

Robin Jones Gunn was born in Wisconsin and lived on a dairy farm until her family moved to southern California when she was five years old. She grew up in Orange County and spent her summers at Newport Beach with friends from her church youth group. After attending Biola University and Capernwray Bible School in Austria, Robin and Ross were married and spent the next two decades working together in youth ministry.
It was the young teens at Robin’s church who challenged her to write stories for them. She hadn’t thought much about being a writer, but took their request to heart and set her alarm for 3am, three days a week. With two small children it was the only time she could find to write the first story about Christy Miller. After two years and ten rejections the novel Summer Promise was accepted for publication in 1988. Robin hasn’t stopped writing since. Over 4 million copies of her 75 books have sold and can be found in a dozen translations all over the world.

Robin and her husband now live in Hawaii where Ross is a counselor and Robin continues to write to the sound of tropical birds chattering in the palm trees outside her window. Their children are grown but manage to come to the islands with their families every chance they get. Robin's awards include: three Christy awards for excellence in fiction, a Gold Medallion finalist, Mt. Hermon Pacesetter and the Mt. Hermon Writer of the Year award. Robin travels extensively and is a frequent key-note speaker at various events around the world.  She serves on the Board of Directors for Media Associates International and Jerry Jenkin’s Christian Writer’s Guild.

  I haven’t read many of Robin’s books in the Sierra series, but this one I thought was superb. So I know the rest would be wonderful. I was so involved with this book. Just had to keep reading to see the many twists and turns and then to see how it ended.
   I just love how at the beginning Sierra and Jordan kept meeting at different places and finally got a chance to get to know each other. It was a God thing is how they both called it and I loved that.
    In Love Finds You in Sunset Beach Hawaii it shows you that when God closes one door He will be opening a bigger, better door for you. So if you think you know best about your life, you can be sure God knows much better.
    I love the setting in Hawaii. How Robin describes the ocean, trees, wind and storms, but also how she talks about the wildlife and just the many traditions or customs of the Hawaiian people. It makes you feel like you are really there experiencing the things they experience.
  I’m quite taken with Sierra and Jordan and really think you would love this book.  It is full of sweet friends, finding yourself, life and following God. I highly recommend Love Finds you in Sunset Beach Hawaii.
