Mai Tai One on
I have never been to Hawaii and probably will never get there so I really enjoyed this little virtual escape. I will be back when I read book 2, Two to Mango. If you like your cozy mysteries to include a nice slice of humor, fix yourself a mai tai and enjoy!
I wanted to give this 3 and a half stars but in lieu of that, four will do. To begin with, I quite enjoyed it, for a cozy with a different setting. The folks who have heavily criticized it seem to forget this isn't a work of great literature, just some light reading of a genre which is always heavily formulaic.

So they shouldn't be too surprised at that. However, works in this genre should still make the effort to flesh out their cast of characters to prevent them from devolving into two dimensional paper dolls.
It was good value at less than a dollar, I will say that. I'm willing to pay the current rate for book two in this series to see if the 'usual suspects' have developed further, then make up my mind if I'll read on further. One person found this helpful. Interesting storyline but poorly edited. It's like the writer took notes from an editor, rearranged some sentences, yet forgot to erase the first draft of the sentence. This could be forgiven in a first novel. However, I draw the line when it was written "he could have cared less".
Even a novice should know that the correct phrase is "he couldn't have cared less". If he could have cared less, then he cared some. Too many references to Hawiian words, phrases, locations. I'm starting chapter 18 now. We'll see how it goes. Could have cared less is a pet peeve for me. Characters: Several, developed well enough to picture them, but not be overwhelming. The cast of characters are funny and quite creative.
A mother and daughter duo, but you'll have to read the book to learn why they were titled "big" and "little". Location and Setting: This is the first cozy I've read where the location was Hawaii. I loved the cozy little location in a small part of Kauai. Most of the story happens at the bar, so not much is described through the rest of the town. Maybe in future installments.

However, I do know that there is a lot of real estate for sale in this particular part of the Island. Crime: The body is found at the beginning of the book which I tend to like, as it leaves the rest of the book for all the development. However, that is not the only crime which happens in this story and there is enough twist and turns to keep you guessing. Definitely had me hooked. Romance: There's definitely romance or the possibility of romance in a cozy and this book is no exception.
However, the romance is very mild. Were there sparks flying between Roland and Em? If you ask the maidens, some some yes and some say no.

This book was a slow start for me, could have been my mood. But in the end, I do have to say I enjoyed this book. It's really grown on me the longer its been since I finished reading it and put together the review. A terrific comic mystery romp, with an engaging cast of characters, set in the delightfully dilapidated Tiki Goddess Bar on the North Shore of Kauai.
I enjoyed this book thoroughly and sat up past 2am to finish it. A great choice for a beach read, or anytime you'd like a taste of cozy paradise.
