The novel published by Book*hug, follows a journalist and her photographer fiance as they investigate the killings of horses in a town on Canadaʻs west coast. The novel is one of discovery, or as Book*hug’s synopsis states, “Ultimately, Smells Like Stars draws attention to what is hidden in plain sight, that life can be cruel, ambiguous and without meaning.”

The Elliot Cades Award for Literature is considered among the most prestigious literary honors bestowed in Hawaiʻi.
