Aloha! This book has a perfect blend of mystery, romance, humor, and an introduction to the culture of the North Shore of Kauai. If a book could be described as ono, then this one would be. It is a delicious cozy mystery.
The book starts with a reality crew having invaded the Tiki Goddess bar. Em Johnson is at wit’s end. Then, one of the crew is killed in the kitchen with Chef Kimo’s best sashimi knife and the fun begins. Enter Roland Sharpe, fire dancing detective, who begs the Hula Maidens to stay out of the investigations this time. But, there is fat chance of that since Kimo is married to one of them.
Two more murders, one pinned on Kiki, Kimo’s wife. The Hula Maidens stick together, which means that between Em’s amateur sleuthing and the Hula Maidens’ activities, they are driving Roland round the bend.
Can the Hula Maidens solve the mysteries before Kiki and Kimo end up in jail or there is a 4th murder?
