Overheard conversations indicate things are not as smooth as they seem in the theater.
Meanwhile things are not going smoothly at the Loco Moco either. Money is being stolen from the register. Keanu's father does not like Carrie and feels she is beneath Keanu. The restaurant critic is served tabasco sauce instead of ketchup and storms out. The next day social media and his blog have exploded with critical comments about the restaurant, the food, the service, the waitress, and everything remotely connected to it. In an effort to smooth things over, Keanu's parents agree to send a complimentary breakfast to the critic's room, even though they do not do room service. And as requested by the critic, they make Carrie deliver it. Nothing suits the disgusting man, and he demands Carrie go back for more Kona coffee because it is not hot enough. When she returns with a fresh hot carafe, she is met by an open door and the critic on the floor...
If not for Keanu and his love for her, Carrie would not be able to function through the police questioning, the accusation by Keanu's father, and the horrific day. And things don't seem to be getting better anytime soon.
I loved this installment of the Aloha Lagoon for many reasons, including the way there were several mysteries all woven together in surprising ways. So many good things happened in this book as well. The pacing was quick but not rushed as we went from day to day in the restaurant as well as Carrie's personal life. It was a book that you hated to put down, but didn't want to read too fast, either. Because as much as I wanted to know how it turned out, I didn't want such a good story to be over too soon!
I was totally engaged in this page-turner as Carrie and Keanu uncover a treasure trove of suspects for my inner ‘Sherlock’ to consider: more than a few disgruntled relatives, Keanu’s own parents, Carrie who found the body…again, and even hints of other victims of the man’s restaurant reviews all have motive to spike the man’s coffee. Carrie with her ‘Dr. Watson’ Keanu partner together to corroborate opportunity and means to find the killer and put there lives back on track. Exciting…I loved it! Catherine epitomizes the ‘cozy’ genre as she treats murder lightly focusing more on the clever mystery, strong characters, and lots of twists and turns that lead to a nail biting end that puts Carrie in personal jeopardy. Included to add a bit of realism we deal with the conflicts between Keanu and his parents, thefts at the café, performances at the theater, and the not-yet fully tested relationship between Carrie and Keanu. Catherine also treats us to some delightful Island delicacies with recipes from Chef Poncho’s kitchen at the Loco Moco Café: Loco Moco (Yeah!), Aloha Mix-Up Cookies, Ahi Tuna, and Pineapple Cookies.
You will love it! Don’t forget to check out book one “Death of the Big Kahuna” to complete your experience. Just add a cup of freshly ground Kona coffee, a plate of Pineapple cookies, and you are set for an Aloha adventure only Catherine Bruns can provide!
