A marauding monkey, a mysterious murder, middle-aged hula maidens, and mugs full of Mai Tai's. Just another day in Tiki Goddess paradise....
Crime-solving sleuth Em Johnson and her uncle, Louie, owner of the famous Tiki Goddess Bar on Kauai, head for the Cocktail Shake Off Competition in Honolulu. What is supposed to be a fun trip to a mixology contest turns weird when Louie's legendary "Booze Bible" is stolen and Em's ex-husband winds up dead - with Em the number-one suspect. Sexy Kauai detective and part-time fire dancer Roland Sharpe rushes to Em's side along with the unpredictable Hula Maidens, whose detective skills are even more haphazard than their dance routine at the island tiki bars. Toss in an escaped monkey and a killer who wants to make this the last call for someone's honky-tonk, tiki-tossing night out, and it's going to be another wild escapade for Em and her hula maidens.
A seven-time Romance Writers of America finalist for the RITA Award, Jill Marie Landis also now writes The Tiki Goddess Mysteries (set on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, where she lives with her husband, actor Steve Landis.)

The narrator is horrible
Because the characters in the book have lived in Hawaii for quite sometime, it is expected they would know how to properly pronounce Hawaiian terms and names. I expect the narrator should too. Why didn’t anyone catch this before releasing it?
Narrator needs help
Story was light and funny. I loved the hula maiden characters... a lot! Made me think of me and my hula dancing sister's/friends. The narrator was really bad. She should have been given a lesson in Hawaiian language.
