Overview

From USA Today bestselling author Leslie Langtry comes the killer start to a brand new multi-author series...

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. A missing murder weapon, mysterious threats, and a heck of a frame-up job all have Nani worrying she'll be trading in her flowery muumuus for prison orange. Enter hunky local botanist Nick Woodfield, who just might be able to help her clear her name...that is if he doesn't have secrets of his own. With the bodies stacking up, the danger closing in, and the authorities circling, Nani must track down a killer...before she ends up the latest victim of the Ukulele Murderer!

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.

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!
