A funny-but-touching tale about everything that can go wrong...and what makes it all right!

Tess Nelson is poised to take a well-deserved step up the corporate ladder when it's yanked out from under her. With no job and nothing to fill her days--just a nonrefundable ticket for a trip to Hawaii--Tess decides a tropical vacation is just what she needs. But Tess's journey to paradise is a disaster from the beginning. A sprained ankle at the airport is just the beginning. Then there's the lost contact lens and the lost luggage, the lightning storm at a luau, and the hotel fire. Not to mention the approaching hurricane. And the attractive, annoying young man who keeps crossing her path--and really shaking her up. All Tess wants to do is get her life back under control. But God, it seems, has something else in mind--like opening her heart to everything her life could be.

From Amazon book review:
Review 1."Despite a few mistakes within the book, I loved it! It was a nice light and relaxing book to read and a great story. I truely enjoyed reading it....a wonderful romantic comedy! "

Review 2. "Overworked HR Manager Chick accidentally meets Overworked Air Traffic Controller Dude in Hawaiian-paradise-turned-disaster-area when Hurricane Alana hits & leaves lessons in faith, trust & God swirling in its wake ...

I was immediately drawn into this easy, fast, fun, light read about a woman who has a less-than-perfect vacation in "paradise" after being unjustly & unceremoniously fired from her much-beloved management job ...

But, unfortunately for someone (& I'm not quite sure who), I didn't realize until reading Copeland's note at the end of the book that "Stranded In Paradise" was supposed to be a comedy ... !

Because I've certainly been-there/done-that when it comes to hellacious vacations in "paradise" & being "let go" from hellacious jobs from ... um ... hell, but not one of the situations in the book ever managed to strike me as humorous ...

Poignant was more like it."
