I read in the back notes that the author likes to take poetic license and this sometimes doesn't bother me but here... it did. When you get arrested, request a lawyer and shut your mouth and when your lawyer finds out you weren't even read your Miranda rights, you get off. I just found that whole deal too unbelievable, poetic license aside. It's basic government 101 that we learn in middle school. The main character didn't seem too bright overall. The mystery was fine, as was the writing but those kind of things (that are major to me, maybe others don't care so much) detracted from the beginning. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first one but... nor did I put it down before I finished it, which has happened with some books.

Rolicking fun, romance, murder, intrigue. Very entertaining. I had sort of pointed at Jake as a likely culprit early on but got so involved with the other characters that I forgot about him.

When Hope Foster reports for work at the Smugglers' Tavern where she tends bar, she is horrified to find her boss's lifeless body. As the police investigation zeroes in on her, she teams up with her yoga-guru friend Ruby, bar regular Vernon, and a sexy underwater archeologist named Harvey to find the real killer before all hope is lost. A fun read! I loved the chemistry between Hope and Harvey and the underwater archeology.

The thing I love about this series is that every month, for six months, there will be a new book in the series. The reader gets to meet different residents of the quaint coast town near Seattle called Danger Cove. In Murder and Mai Tais we meet Hope Foster. Hope, a bartender, is trying to solve a murder of which she has been falsely accused while also helping a handsome underwater archaeologist search for a smuggler's ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1852. The story is a mix of mystery, adventure and romance and will keep you guessing until the end.

I love the Danger Cove series!  This is the second book in the series and it didn't disappoint.  I LOVE the way Elizabeth Ashby is working with a different author for each book in this series.  I was already a fan of Sibel before this book and  she again proved why.  Excellent story and characters.  I can hardly wait for the next book. Great job!

I was so excited for the second Danger Cove installment with a new set of characters in a familiar setting. Murder and Mai Tais was a great mystery with lots of humor. Hope Foster gets thrown in the middle of intrigue when she has to find a killer to clear her name for a murder she did not commit.  I loved the overlapping of characters from the first Danger Cove mystery. I am eager for both the next Hope Foster mystery and Danger Cove.

Engaging and interesting second book in the Danger Cove Mystery Series. What I especially like about this series is the main characters of each book have unique stories so each can be read in any sequence. I'm ready for the next book of the series!

Hope had an unusual upbringing.  She traveled the world working at different jobs and ended up in Danger Cove.  Hope is working for Bob  as his bartender when she finds him dead when she opens up one morning.  Everyone is looking at her for the crime but she knows it is  not her.  Hope and her friends who are more than they seem decide to find the killer.  There are many unexpected twists and events  before they find the answer. This is an enjoyable cozy mystery.  Wit, humor, charming characters and a good plot make for a reading adventure!  Looking forward to the next book in this series!
