This is the second Tiki Goddess mystery I have read and it did not disappoint. A light, fun mystery with loveable characters, from the dysfunctional Hula Maidens to the fire-dancing detective Roland Sharp and the romantic tension between him and the main character, Em Johnson. This story gave me many a giggle driving to and from work. Tanya Eby is a great and entertaining narrator, she gave each character their own voice and kept it consistent. Great job Jill Marie Landis, I look forward to more!

An exciting thriller I could not put down!

Patterson is an experienced and talented thriller writer, and this was obvious from the moment I started listening. I knew it was going to be good and I was not disappointed. The only criticism was with the narrator, Rummel. Although obviously an experienced actor with an engaging style and talent at separating the characters voices, he pronounced a couple of things incorrectly which was annoying, given the amount of research that went into the text. For example he kept pronouncing 'Kamehameha' wrong, the name of the Maui Hotel named after the first king of the Hawaiian Islands. So his Hawaiian isn't great, which could usually be forgiven, but for a book with a large part of it set in Hawaii you would think he would have checked pronunciations for such words.

A fun story set in Hawai'i!

This was a fun, corny crime story set on Kaua'i. Very entertaining for my drive to and from work. Will be looking for more of Jill's work.
