Feisty and attractive, newly minted divorcee/widow, returns to home town or moves to quiet village to make a fresh start. (She’s blonde/auburn, slender, with green or tawny eyes...etc...)
Either runs a business by herself or in partnership with a relative.
Finding her feet, becoming part of a community full of ‘quirky, down-home appealing characters.
Thrust unwilling into the deep end of a murder mystery because the victim was a friend/enemy/local dignitary/celebrity and she is, as a result, a suspect, or a friend or relative of a suspect.
The local law enforcement officer is unmarried, attractive, tall, with smouldering eyes....etc...
He is resentful of our heroine's interference at first but by the end of the book is strongly attracted to her.
What’s not to like about this charming, comfortable formula?
What makes or breaks the different examples of said formula is the fleshing out of the characters, both the main protagonists and the quirky ‘entourage’.
I didn’t feel in the first two books of this series, that sufficient work had been done in making the characters truly three dimensional individuals. This may come in time, but is still lacking at the end of book two.
I worked hard at trying to like, or even visualise these people but, no...not for me. It’s rare for me to leave a cozy unfinished but this time I just drifted away from boredom.
As for the story, the Hula Maidens got on my nerves after awhile. As other reviewers have stated, the drinking and driving gets a little ridiculous and Little Estelle is a really annoying character. Not enough substance to the mystery part of the story and too much attention to the fluff part. Don't know if I'll waste another $8.49 on the third book, since it's a short one, too.
I love the plot, the characters, and the setting. I can't wait to read book three!
I would have given this five stars except that I can't in good conscience give five stars to a book riddled with typos and formatting errors. I know this is not the author's fault, but rather the fault of the publisher who would put out a book in such a state. The story deserves five starts, but it's an unfortunate fact that value for money means that I have to give this book four stars.
This is a fun, beach read series and I found it just before my last trip to Kauai!
