Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Great Story. Took me for a ride!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Going for Kona to be better than the print version?

    I love audio books, so my response is biased.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the intricacies of the plot. I love the suspense, the surprises, and especially the character of Michelle.


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Gray – was your favorite?

    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!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You always never know.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Smooth, flavorful, enjoyably tasty cup of words"
    What did you love best about Going for Kona?

    The reader, Natalie Grey!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The personal relationship between the characters was well written and believable.


    What does Natalie Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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!
