The Hawaiian Backdrop of "Lady in the Window"

Excerpt from “Lady In The Window” A Novel by Maryann Ridini Spencer (May 2017/Select Books)

Kate and Olivia walk up a small stairway to a wood lanai landing belonging to the one story plantation style shop. A sign written in pretty calligraphy and interlaced with images of white plumeria blooms hangs over the red-painted wood door and reads, “The Plumeria Café.”

Inside the bustling room, as well as outside on the lanai, early morning risers sit at little wooden tables and sip their Kona coffees, lattes, and personalized drinks.

At the back of the café, stands a large glass counter which displays all types of luscious baked goods in tantalizing arrangements, behind which a bevy of baristas rush about filling various customer’s requests. Hawaiian instrumental music plays softly over the intercom system…

…The aroma of freshly roasted Kona coffee fills the café and mingles in a sweet potpourri with other intoxicating scents — from cinnamon baked apples to fresh rosemary bread being pulled out of the oven, and to subtle hints of oven-toasted lemon and blueberry scones — all of which serve to arouse and encourage a very good reason to break the morning fast.
