The Scent of Waikiki is the ninth installment in Trouble in Paradise series and I do not recommend starting with this book. I believe it is best to read the series in order. I found the book to be nicely written and to have a steady pace. There are beautiful descriptions of the island which included the gorgeous weather, the mountains, the ocean and, of course, the beach. The story has a laid-back feel to it which goes with the island lifestyle. I liked the humor that is incorporated into the story (the story will have you chuckling). The mystery is intriguing with the disappearing perfume, a dead woman, a scam artist and a missing suspect. The author provides misdirection to throw us off the track of the real killer. McKenna finds himself drawn into the case and neglecting his wedding plans which upsets his fiancé, Benni. I did not understand why Benni wanted to know all the details of the case and would get upset with McKenna (she does want him to help Grace). I would have preferred less romance (which means wedding planning, bickering, etc.) and more mystery (just my personal preference). Relax on a lounge chair next to the pool with a tropical drink and embark on a Hawaiian adventure in The Scent of Waikiki.
*I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this novel. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
This book is about a woman that lives in the same apartment complex as McKenna & Chance, that got scammed by someone about buying a perfume start up kit to make money. The perfume...Primal, the scam, there is no start up kit to sell this perfume. I’m happy to see Mr Ambrose go back to his roots in this mystery about a scam! I’m also thrilled that Chance, McKenna’s somewhat new partner in the detective biz, seems to have grown, although still comical, he’s much better as a detective, even though he still doesn’t have his credentials yet. He’s the “bad cop” to McKenna’s “good cop” during this investigation & he’s pretty scary while playing the part
They’re mission is trying to figure out exactly who all is involved in scamming Grace from her life’s savings, she’s on the verge of being evicted from the apartment complex. They meet with various people , starting with the actual scammer guy. Of course, all mysteries can’t be solved in the first few chapters or what fun would that be? He tells a story about another guy being the head of this scam, they see that guy & he tells them of another guy. So the story goes. Who & how many & what part do they have in this scam of a perfume that hasn’t even been released to the public to buy yet? These are the questions & the mystery in solving this mystery scam story
Oh yes, a marriage is being planned in the midst of this investigation....McKenna’s! His fiancé Benni wants him to help Grace, so she’s pretty understanding of him helping her out. Chance also has a girl friend, Lexi & they all just want to help Grace get her money back so she can stay living at the apartment complex
I received a digital copy of this book by the author. In return I’ve written an honest review. I love this series! This author also has a new series about a B&B which is very much different from this series, but also quite good
