Overview

PARADISE CAN BE MURDER

When Laurel McKay attends a Hawaiian wedding, her vacation soon becomes more deadly than the calorie count in her daiquiri. Her post-wedding holiday upends after a beautiful hula dancer is found dead on the rocks below the oceanfront restaurant owned by Laurel's brother and sister-in-law. When a family member is arrested for the murder, Laurel is plunged into a mystery where exotic Big Island locations--a coffee plantation, black sand beaches and a volcano--reveal their deadly side.

And where is her hunky on-again/off-again boyfriend detective when she needs him? Laurel zip-lines and four-wheels her way through the island paradise unearthing long hidden secrets. Will ingenuity and pluck be enough? Or will this hula be her last?

"Laurel McKay could serve as the poster girl for a normal suburban soccer mom except for one thing. She's a magnet for murder, even on vacation in Hawaii. Cindy Sample has created a heroine all gals can identify with and admire as she keeps going with wit and determination, even in the face of a homicide arrest. Sample's stories combine humor, romance and mystery, a recipe that yields a great book. Kick back with a tall, cool drink and enjoy this 5 star read!"
Mary Beth McGee, National Reviewer, Examiner.com

"DYING FOR A DAIQUIRI is the perfect title for Cindy Sample's newest laugh-laced who-done-it. Her delectable concoction will make you hanker to visit Hawaii, request life-size posters of the two hunks vying for heroine Laurel McKay's kisses, and laugh out loud at this single mom's humor and pluck--even when her life's hanging by a thread. I give five stars--or maybe it should it be five cherries--to this cocktail of a vacation adventure, sexy interludes, raucous laughs, and mystery."
-Linda Lovely, Author of the Marley Clark series

Who knew dancing could be so deadly?
