"Gemma Halliday's Maddie Springer is like the west coast version of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum—only more stylish!"
- LG Book Club
Fashion designer Maddie Springer has just tied the knot and is on her way to honeymoon paradise in Tahiti with her hot new husband. Warm sand, cool surf, and a romantic suite all to themselves... what could possibly go wrong? That is until Maddie stumbles on the dead body of a Tahitian dancer, strangled with her own flower lei. Now suddenly her husband is spending more time consulting with the local police than cavorting in their private hot tub for two. If Maddie wants to have a honeymoon at all, it's up to her and her friends to track down the island killer before paradise turns deadly again.

I always wondered what happened on the honeymoon, and now we know. I love how Maddie feel like she has to solve the murder so she can enjoy the rest of her honeymoon with Rameriez. What is even better is that her crazy friends arrive on the scene to help her! Short novella that will hold you over until the next one.
yet another excellent book in the high heels series. Absolutely love to read these books, it's always a little bit of a sad day when I finish yet another book and having to wait for the next one in the series, excellent job to the author
