Even "death do us part" couldn't spoil her wedding day plans...Wedding planner Pali Moon is thrilled when a would-be bride shows up at "Let's Get Maui'd" inquiring about a lavish beach wedding. That is, until she learns it must be on Valentine's Day - just nine days away. Oh yeah, and one other little hitch - the groom disappeared at sea a week earlier. But the bride's convinced he'll be found safe and sound, so she's got a plan - and a man - to do a proxy ceremony if necessary. The day before the big nuptials a man's body washes ashore on a South Maui beach. Has the groom finally shown up? If so, what's it going to be - a wedding...or a funeral? This is the first book in the Islands of Aloha Mystery series.
This is a cozy mystery, which means no graphic sex or violence and very little "bad" language. It's set in Hawaii, and the main character is a local girl, mid-30s. This is the first book in an eight-part series, and I'd like the voice actor to be willing to commit to all eight projects.

The premise & basic story line of this book were good, but I struggled with a couple of things. One was that the main character didn't really get involved in the actual mystery or show any leaning toward sleuthing until near the end of the book. The main thing for me though was that I didn't feel any real connection to the characters. They felt only partially developed to me & I didn't have much in common with any of them, so it just didn't click for me.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This book was easy to listen to and held my attention. The narrator was great so this book ranks as one of my favorites that I will go back and listen to again.
The puppies and Sir Lipton will not soon be forgotten.
My favorite character was Farrah. I just loved her.
When Farrah gave Hatch the little puppy.
This was so much fun to listen to and I will be looking for the next title in this series to delve into. I loved it.
