Great fun read!

This book was just fun. Fun, fun, fun. From the comic background characters, to the main characters with their real problems. If you're a fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels this is a series for you. The exotic local adds just the right amount of spice to the mystery, and the actual plot of the mystery is just convoluted enough to keep you guessing. Snatch up this book right away!

Comedic Mystery

This sounded like a fun read and came highly recommended by authors I love like Kristin Hannah and Carly Phillips. This isn't my typical genre but, I was willing to take a chance.

I was expecting a little more "romance", but it was mostly mystery with a comedic twist. Since I have never been to Hawaii, some of the terms and way of life described in Hawaii was new to me. I could see those who are familiar with the Hawaiian life-syle would appreciate that part of the book more. I did appreciate the author making one of the characters from Iowa and not making her too "hickish".

Since there were a couple murders and an attempted murder in the story, you were easily drawn into finding out who was the next to fall and who the murderer was. Even though the story leads you in several directions, I did guess the murderer early on, but it didn't change my interest in finding out if and/or how that person would be caught.

This was an enjoyable light read. It is perfect for a weekend getaway or for taking a break from heavier reading. It will make you laugh and make you wish you were relaxing at the Tiki Goddess bar yourself! The fun part is, the author includes some signature Tiki Goddess drink recipes at the back of the book. I may have to try out some of those! I will be watching for Book 2 of the series to come out!

    Skip it!

    I was very disappointed in this book. Based on the reviews, I thought it would be a fun read, but I simply could not get into it - I actually found it boring. But I kept plugging away til I came to the chapter with the anatomically correct description of a nude beach - then I quit. This book is not for me, and if detailed descriptions of nudity make you uncomfortable, then you need to skip this one.
