Theatre professors and spouses, Nicky Abbondanza and Noah Oliver, are on their honeymoon at a Hawaiian resort, where musclemen in grass skirts are keeling over like waterfalls. Things erupt faster than a volcano when Nicky and Noah, along with their best friends Martin and Ruben, try to stage a luau show. Nicky and Noah will need to use their drama skills to figure out who is bringing the grass curtain down on male hula dancers—before things go coconuts for the handsome couple. You will be applauding and shouting Bravo for Joe Cosentino’s fast-paced, side-splittingly funny, edge-of-your-seat entertaining fourth novel in this delightful series. Curtain up and aloha!

We Brits love a modern British Farce and to me, Joe Cosentino must have British blood flowing his veins somewhere because this was a first-rate, brilliant, laugh-a-minute storyline. Let me explain why. The definition of a farce is “a comic dramatic work using buffoonery and horseplay and typically including crude characterisation and ludicrously improbable situations”. Yep. Joe Cosentino covered all that and so much more. I'm going to go all fan-girly here when I say that I have read everyone of his M/M books and loved every unique one. I really thought he had reached his writers summit and couldn't climb any higher. Oh boy, was I wrong. Not only did he breach his summit, he touched the clouds as well, he truly surpassed himself on this one. Due to a lactose and glucose intolerance outbreak, Nicky and Noah’s parents businesses are suffering, so much so they are unable to pay for their sons honeymoon. Not a problem though, as their wonderful friends and work colleague, Martin and his so droll husband, Rubén have found them a Production to produce in Hawaii, the honeymoon is still on! Now my advice at this stage to any would-be traveller, would be to check the Passenger List before embarking on your travels. If you see the names of Nicky Abbondanza and Noah Oliver on the list, go in the opposite direction, preferably the other side of the world because it's the only way to guarantee your survival, the body count when Nicky and Noah go visiting is just staggering….. The words of “The show must go on” has never been so daunting with their dancers forgetting their artistic grace and dropping like sacks of potatoes. Nicky and Noah were hoping to have their hands full with each other, not a list of suspects that seems to get longer and longer and with every chance that their names could well be on the killer’s list as well. Is the drama of the Luau Nicky and Noah’s last party? Read to find out yourselves…. Five big fat Aloha stars from me. **** I voluntary reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of the book****
