The newest romantic mystery from the bestselling author of the Katie & Annalise series! Going for Kona has it all: unforgettable characters, an epic love story, and a pause-resisting mystery that will keep you guessing until the end.
When her husband is killed in a hit-and-run bicycling accident, it takes all of Michele Lopez Hanson's strength not to burrow into their bed for the rest of her life. But their kids need her, and she promised herself she'd do the Kona Ironman Triathlon in Adrian's honor, and someone seems to be stalking her family, so she slogs through the pain to keep herself on track. Her dangerously delirious training sessions become a link between her and Adrian, and she discovers that if she keeps moving fast enough to fly, she can hold onto her husband - even as she loses her grip on herself and faces her biggest danger yet.

I love audio books, so my response is biased.
I loved the intricacies of the plot. I love the suspense, the surprises, and especially the character of Michelle.
I thought they were all quite believable....I loved her take on the teenage boy. It surprised me how much I FELT that character. I was grateful I wasn't his Mother!
You always never know.
I loved the infusion of some Spanish....I wish there had been a little more, because I feel that Michelle's character was fiery and was holding back a little.
The reader, Natalie Grey!
The personal relationship between the characters was well written and believable.
Natalie Grey added so much to the story with her enthusiasm, her lively narration and minor sound effects that it made it feel like she was in the car with me, telling me this story on my way to work, making the time just fly by.
If you like your suspense in the lighter Sue Grafton vein, rather than the darker stories of Jo Nesbo, then you are going to love this book. The story is lightly suspenseful, with very little violence, but the characters are lively, the story satisfying and the narrator is excellent!
