Publisher's Summary

From best-selling cozy mystery author Beth Prentice comes an Aloha Lagoon mystery that will leave you gasping for more... 

Samantha Reynolds had hoped that moving to the resort town of Aloha Lagoon would be the start of an exciting new life. Sure, it may not be everything she had hoped for - she's living with her mom, has no job, no income, and absolutely no idea what to do next. But it's a start! 

Out of options, Samantha decides to take a job she's just a little under-qualified for - a children's surfing instructor at the Aloha Lagoon Resort. She can surf... but she just doesn't know how to teach surfing. But that soon becomes the least of her worries. Throw in two dead bodies, two unexpected inheritances, and one hot bartender, and the heat in Aloha Lagoon has quickly turned up! 

Samantha just needs to figure out why her family is involved, control a group of preadolescent kids, keep her mom and brother out of jail, and get the hot bartender to notice her. It couldn't be that hard, could it? With the help of her new friend Alani and some of the quirky residents of Aloha Lagoon, she just may be able to pull it all off...and still keep everybody alive! 

About Aloha Lagoon: There's trouble in paradise. Welcome to Aloha Lagoon, one of Hawaii's hidden treasures. A little bit of tropical paradise nestled along the coast of Kauai, this resort town boasts luxurious accommodation, friendly island atmosphere...and only a slightly higher than normal murder rate. 

While mysterious circumstances may be the norm in our corner of the island, we're certain that our staff and Lagoon natives will make your stay in Aloha Lagoon one you will never forget!

Second time around

I have read this book first when it was released and it was so nice to revisit Sam's antics from the start again. I have read all the Samantha Reynolds books and some of the other books in the Aloha Lagoon series.

This audio was narrated by Tessa Needham this was a first time listen to this narrator for me and at first, I was very unsure if I like her take on this story. But as the story went along and my memory of the story was refreshed I came better accustomed to her tone, speed and voice.

Beth Prentice has a way with words that entertain you while putting a smile on your face with her wonderful character's antics of life. Sam is no different she will make you laugh, make you cringe, make you say stop and thing, but most of all she will make you keep reading to learn more about her and her life. Sam has recently moved from Sydney Australia to Hawaii to be closer to her mother and twin brother, Luke. But living with them both was not in the plan, she has had trouble finding work but as the book starts she finds herself a job as a surf instructor at the local resort. What could possibly go wrong with this type of job??????????

Ssm soon finds herself as an amateur detective when her mother is taken in for questioning about murder and all the fun will not stop there as a second murder will have her brother in the hot seat next. As both victims reside from the nursing home were her mother and brother work.

Sam is not alone in her sleuthing she will involve her new friends Alani and the sexy bartender, Casey. This book is full of fun, mystery, secrets, family drama, attraction and lots of laughs to keep you fully entertain to the very last word. If you are like me you will not see the end coming at all!!!!
