Jane Shea likes lists. She likes plans, and organization, and orderliness. So when her boyfriend invites her to vacation in Maui with him, Jane is cautiously optimistic. She wants to have a good time but is afraid something is going to go wrong - a freak snowstorm will come to L.A. and ground the plane, or the airline will lose their luggage, or worse, Jimmy will never show up to pick her up.

When the worst that happens is the hotel losing their reservation, Jane thinks she can finally relax. The something bad she's been bracing herself for finally happened, but in paradise, where hotels are as plentiful as sand, losing their reservation isn't that bad. Then Jimmy goes out diving one morning and never returns, and Jane realizes that despite all that she prepared herself to go wrong, she never could have prepared herself for this.

This is easily Carol Snow's best book to date and that's saying a lot because all of her previous books have been wonderful. The minute I received this, I curled up on the couch to begin reading. Twenty-four hours later, I was finished and wanting more. I loved everything about Here Today, Gone to Maui. I liked Jane and how uptight and neurotic she is. I loved the twists and turns concerning Jimmy's whereabouts. The only thing I didn't like about this book is how long I will have to wait for another Carol Snow book. Snow is definitely one of my auto-buy authors - I know that I'll be in for a good story, realistic characters, and a fun time all around.
