This reads like a super-condensed adventure novel full of twisting plot lines, interesting characters, romance, and all set in a tropical landscaped paradise...can't wait for the pictures. Vacation bliss!!

Anonymous said..again.. (This blog entry screams for more comments, so here we go). Maui Revealed is actually the name of the best guide book ever written for Maui. Andrew Doughty also writes "best evers" for the other islands as well..known as the Blue Books. Although the other guide books rate five stars from Amazon Book Review, Maui Revealed gets a 4 1/2 star. Apparently, Andrew didn't order the burger at Tutu's Burger Shack :(
