Overview

Three couples, seven days, and an invitation to spend a weekend in paradise manifests into a ticket to hell, bringing death and destruction...
and in Kona, someone has decided it's a time for reckoning.
Against the backdrop of Hawaiian sunsets, luaus, soothing melodies, and the crash of the ocean's waves, deadly passions arise when the distressed couples vacation at an island condo. Their marital relationships are difficult, and these eager-yet unsuspecting-players know that sometimes a vacation can do wonders in bringing back a little much-needed romance.
Kim and Barry are having trouble in their marriage. More accurately, Kim is having trouble convincing Barry to keep his hands off his younger colleague. So Kim's sister Dana offers her condo in Kona, Hawaii for the two to work out the kinks in their marriage. The trip might be just what Kim and Barry need. Barry is a man of routine and he carries out his rituals in Hawaii: a drink and a nightly swim.
Frank and Bea are about to celebrate their thirty-sixth wedding anniversary. Bea has some terrible news for Frank, but she decides to save it until after the anniversary celebration. After all, they were fortunate enough to win a stay at a condo in Kona. And Bea would hate to see their vacation spoiled.
Ted and Susan are having marital troubles of their own when Susan falls into a depression about the growing gap between her and Ted. While she is preoccupied with political participation, Ted yearns for a sailboat-and another woman. When offered a week-long stay at the Kona condo, he leaps at the opportunity to find out once and for all whether their marriage is worth saving. And Susan couldn't be happier-until a picture inside the condo reveals more than she wanted to know about her husband.
Work is getting awfully busy for Robert Chang of the Kona Police Department as he leads an investigation into two seemingly unrelated deaths and another individual's hospitalization in Kona.
Ironically, the crime scene is the same for each incident...

...the condo that had welcomed its many visitors.

Meet the Author

A native Californian, Jackie Ullerich was born in Los Angeles, grew up in San Diego and attended UCLA, where she graduated with honors, earning a secondary teaching credential in theater arts and English. She also attained Master Teacher status, which qualified her to train and supervise student teachers at the high school level.

In a major change of venue, Jackie left the classroom for the world stage to travel and live in a variety of places, both in the U.S. and overseas, with her Air Force husband.
Her years of living in Turkey and Greece coincided with changes in government, including tanks in the streets. But hostile environments were offset by exploration of ancient cultures and the colorful tapestries of contemporary life.

Of her many experiences, teaching English as a foreign language at the Turkish War College in Ankara, was an adventure in itself. While her novels reflect first-hand knowledge of exotic and historic locals, California provides a backdrop for most of her writing.

Presently, Jackie and her retired Air Force JAG husband reside in Palm Desert, California where her husband golfs while Jackie writes.

Jackie has a strong readership following based upon her previously published works “The Bride Stands Alone” and “At Risk,” which are currently available in e-Book and print from leading book retailers.
