Beautifully and insightfully written, The Last Aloha shines a light on a dark part of Hawaii s history, and challenges us to see each other with both our minds and our hearts the true aloha spirit. Quinn reminds us that this spirit has always been in the hearts of the Hawaiian people, giving us hope that it is within reach of us all. --Q Orianka Kilcher, actress, star of The New World and Princess Ka`iulani (2009)
I was caught up in the drama and spectacle from the first. Quinn knows her history and is skilled at bringing it to the page. I highly recommend this novel, not just to those with an interest in the Hawaiian Islands, but to all who can appreciate a good yarn. Knowing that much of this one is true made it all the more compelling. --Eileen Goudge, best-selling author of Garden of Lies and Such Devoted Sisters

I am very fond of books about Hawaii. I loved the history in this book.
Makes me a bit sad how we took the islands away from these peaceful people.

This is a great book for anyone who has no idea what went into the overthrow of the monarchy of Hawaii. It really is such an injustice.Published 1 month ago by V. Shanney

While the story was interesting, the writing style was juvenile. I felt it could've been more authentic and genuine to the time.Published 1 month ago by EF
I enjoyed this story a lot. It shows how unbridled and unregulated business men can have undue political influence. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Kathy Glascott
