Book two: the romance continues
on July 9, 2014
Leilani "Lei" Texiera, now a police detective, has moved to Kauai from the big island to get away from her ex-fiancee Michael Stevens. When a tourist asks Lei to find her missing husband, this leads to discovery of ten other tourists who have gone missing over the years. Lei suspects that a cult group may have kidnapped all these people for use in ritual killings. Body parts and bones turn up that match with some of the missing. When the FBI comes onboard, Lei's boss takes her off the case, but she persists, and eventually finds the serial murderer.
I liked this book, but I have the same criticisms of this second book as I did of the first one in the series: 1) sometimes the Hawaiian "pidgin" English is a little hard to understand; 2) I often found it hard to determine who was speaking during the long dialog sections due to the author's style of mentioning the non-speaking person in a dialog paragraph. This book may appeal more to female readers, as it had even more romantic content than the first book.
