Fortunately for Ben, Helen, Nacho and Justin, they
have some really diversified friends. Two of these,

About the Author
The Lahaina Mystery Series by Barbara E. Sharp Ten years as Research Director of The Lahaina Restoration Foundation, reading archival microfilms, entering 3,000 pages of history into the computer, writing historical articles for the local newspaper and speaking to community groups, has culminated in the writing of seven mystery novels. The stories follow the adventures of a diverse group of friends who live and work in modern-day Lahaina where they find themselves involved in murder, mayhem and history. The books are fast reads with lots of humor and action as the amateur sleuths use historical research, sting operations, surveillance and their unique talent for deducing. The action centers mostly in and around historic Lahaina town, occasionally in upcountry Maui and at Hana during an archaeological dig. Local residents and visitors from all over the world will recognize locations and the historical sites, that are included in the context of the stories.
