When Laurel McKay attends a Hawaiian wedding, her vacation soon becomes more deadly than the calorie count in her daiquiri. Her post-wedding holiday upends after a beautiful hula dancer is found dead on the rocks below the oceanfront restaurant owned by Laurel's brother and sister-in-law. When a family member is arrested for the murder, Laurel is plunged into a mystery where exotic Big Island locations - a coffee plantation, black sand beaches and a volcano - reveal their deadly side.
And where is her hunky on-again/off-again boyfriend detective when she needs him? Laurel zip-lines and four-wheels her way through the island paradise unearthing long hidden secrets. Will ingenuity and pluck be enough? Or will this hula be her last?

I liked the first book in the series. The second one had issues, but I thought I would give this third one a try. I have just returned it.
Honestly, the characters are just weird. I understand jumping when someone startles you, but do you try to strangle that person in a public place? In broad daylight? This action was the last straw. Lots of other weird attempts at creating tension caused I a heroin who is to inapt to live, added to my dislike of this book. Example: she just happens to hit the speaker button on her cell phone as her sister-in-law makes him incriminating statement at a time the room is quiet, so the cops hear it. I just got tired of bumbling this and bumbling that for comedic or dramatic effect.
