Never confuse Hawaìian spirits for Aloha spirit.

On the lush tropical Hawaìian island of Kauài sits the iconic dilapidated Coco Palms Resort, once a paradise getaway for the rich and famous. On September 11, 1992 Hurricane Iniki ripped through Kauài, leaving the resort nothing more than a hollowed shell.

Centuries before Iniki struck, the land belonged to Kauài’s royal family. The lush coconut grove along the Wailua River was home to Queen Deborah, the last reigning monarch, whose remains have never been found. Rumor has it that she walks the halls of the resort.

After more than two decades, corporate New York lawyer, Abby Parker has been hired to acquire the property for a wealthy land developer. Abby soon discovers that the Heritage and Cultural Association is not the biggest obstacle to stand in her way. Within hours of arriving on the island, Abby finds herself on a gurney, in the back of an ambulance. Abby may have bitten off more than she can chew.

About the Author

Rita's parents immigrated in the 1950's from their homeland of Italy-bringing with them two of her older siblings. Rita, being the youngest, was the only one born in Canada, and remains a citizen to this day. Besides reading and writing, Rita loves to travel and explore being a part of other cultures, even if it is for just a short while.

From a very young age, Rita took to reading and still gets enthralled with every trip to the bookstore. The electronic downloading of reading material has made her reading addiction that much easier to appease.
