Feature Book by Dee DeTarsio

Haole Wood

Synopsis

When San Diego weathercaster, Jaswinder Park, is mysteriously summoned to the island of Maui in Hawaii to help her grandmother, she ends up losing her job. This fair-haired, light-skinned foreigner, called haole by the natives, decides to stay in Maui for a couple of days until she can figure out what to do with her life. She realizes that her quick trip to Maui may not be all she’s hoping for when:

Beautiful fabric found in her grandmother’s closet unfolds a future for Jaswinder as she designs sensuous silky wraps called sunshminas that provide sun protection. She tries for a Hollywood connection, but her company, Haole Wood, has some growing pains. From trying to find a killer, to selling her sunshminas, to lusting after Dr. Jac, the island dermatologist, to trying to ignore her so-called guardian angel, can Jaswinder learn to embrace the island way of life? Aloha!

About the Author, Dee DeTarsio

Dee moved to San Diego where she worked in the SeaWorld entertainment department as a Producer/Writer. (Penguins are mean!) She then became a Producer/Writer with NBC for a live, comedy/variety show.Dee DeTarsio

Though her father was never famous and her mother never beat her (that hard!) she suspects one of her sisters is a vampire.

Dee is the author of The Scent of Jade and The Kitchen Shrink (both finalists in the San Diego Book Awards) ‘Til Somebody Loves You, Ros, and newly released, Haole Wood.
