Even though I suspected who the killer was nearly halfway through, it did not detract from my Enjoyment of this New cast of Characters in their Wonderful island setting! Will likely continue with this series.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Since I love all things beach, especially Hawaii, I had been eyeing the Aloha Lagoon series for a while and when I saw that there was an audio version I had to jump at the chance to get it. The story is fun with interesting characters and good writing. There were a couple of times I thought I knew who the killer was but couldn’t bring myself to commit but in the end the clues are there but not too noticeable to be clear. The characters are fun if a bit naive and overall, I thought it was fun and I’ll be sure to move along in the series!

Ukulele Murder by Leslie Langtry is the first book in the Aloha Lagoon Mystery series however it is not the first book in this series that I have read. And it doesn't matter !! You can pick up any book in this series and start reading it. The Aloha Lagoon Mystery series is a series of books written by a number of amazing authors and the thing that links them all together is the Aloha Lagoon Resort on the island of Kauai. Each book written centers around the resort and introduces you to the culture, the food, the music, the people, the sun, the sand and murder...... In Ukulele Murder you are introduced to Nani Johnson who plays the ukulele. She works at the Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel, gives lessons to a handful of students, lives with her crazy mother and is being set up for murder !! "The Terrible Trio" as she calls them are local ukulele musicians who she doesn't really know that well but cannot stand them....which is okay because none of them like her or even each other. But someone is killing them and making it look like Nani did it. Ukulele is a serious business on the island and one worth killing over !!! Nani with the help of her best friend, Binny and her "future" boyfriend Nick decide to solve the murders themselves. After all Detective Ray is taking his sweet old time doing it because it looks like he believes Nani did it. You will want to grab a mimosa and some sunscreen because once you start you will not be able to stop !! There is so much to love in these books you will be a HUGE fan from the start !!! You will never want to leave the resort !!

This is a great book; this is the first book in the Aloha Lagoon Mystery series written by Leslie Langtry. Nani Johnson thought she had it made when she moved from Kansas to the resort town of Aloha Lagoon, Kauai. In spite of her certifiably crazy mom, Nani is determined that nothing will stop her from becoming a ukulele virtuoso! Unfortunately her Julliard training doesn't help her break into the local music scene due to some heavy competition from the Terrible Trio, three hostile, local musicians. The only work she finds is a few bar mitzvahs and gigs at the kitschy Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel. But when one of Nani's competitors drops dead right after a public feud, Nani becomes the police's main suspect. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Promising start to a new series. I liked Nani and her friends. Some funny moments. "Whodunit" seemed obvious early on, but I still enjoyed seeing how Nani figured it out.

I really enjoyed this book. Love the locale and it was downright funny. Nani is a very likeable character and the story moved fast. Can't wait for the next installment.

A-lo-ha-fun-read! Leslie Langtry has a knack for making murder mysteries both funny and intriguing. Set in luscious Aloha Bay, Hawaii "Ukulele Murder" is the perfect setting for a summer (or really anytime) literary escape!
