Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Mary Jo Burke comes the next deliciously deadly episode in the best-selling Aloha Lagoon Mystery series.

After Simone Ryan is stood up at the alter by her fiancé, Elliott, she decides to enjoy her would-be honeymoon in paradise alone. She checks into the Aloha Lagoon Resort's bridal suite and promptly begins to drown her sorrows in champagne. But when Simone steps out onto the balcony to take in the glorious Hawaiian scenery, she gets an even better view. Hot local baker, Liam Bentley, is out for a stroll on the beach. Maybe being single isn't so bad after all. 

But when Elliot makes a surprise appearance at the resort - with a younger woman in tow - things turn deadly, and suddenly Simone finds herself not in the role of newlywed but prime murder suspect! 

Fighting for her life - not to mention her dignity - Simone must uncover secrets from her ex-fiancé's past, which may just have killer consequences for her own future. With the help of the ever-so-tempting Liam, his feisty grandmother, and the quirky Aloha Lagoon staff, Simone finds herself tracking down a murderer who may just be closer to home than she thinks... 

About Aloha Lagoon: There's trouble in paradise... Welcome to Aloha Lagoon, one of Hawaii's hidden treasures. A little bit of tropical paradise nestled along the coast of Kauai, this resort town boasts luxurious accommodation, friendly island atmosphere...and only a slightly higher than normal murder rate. While mysterious circumstances may be the norm on our corner of the island, we're certain that our staff and Lagoon natives will make your stay in Aloha Lagoon one you will never forget!

Beach read

Like intrigue? Steamy scenes with little actually revealed? This is a solid beach-read.

Enjoyable light reading type book. Some intense parts and a few solid twists packed into a “never in a million years” type romance.

Not for under 18 due to suggestion. Language would be ranked as moderate.

The narrator has pretty good character differentiation and fits the characters well!

Hawaii is for love and murder.

I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this book. Samone decides to go on her honeymoon alone, having been stoodup at the courthouse on her wedding day. Unfortunately, her fiance shows up with the daughter of her boss. After causing a scene, she ends up as a murder suspect when Elliott ends up dead.

A couple of very interesting characters come to the rescue and she finds herself in the middle of a FBI case and falls for another man with secrets only to be saved from a similar fate as Elliott by her mother

ok

Deadly Bubbles in the Wine is ok. It's more romance than mystery and not very realistic. But, it's ok.

I received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Loved it.

I really liked the narrator in this book. I thought she bought out the main character. I didn't just get told what she was like but I also felt it. She really bought out the personality of the characters.
The book itself is heavy on the romance and the mystery isn't too bad, I have read a lot worse. There were moments that made me smile, which I really like in a cozy mystery.
Another reviewer mentioned sex in this book well I listened to it and the sex scene happens behind closed doors. Yes sex is discussed but it does not go into detail, so if you want a cozy mystery with plenty of romance and no sex then this is for you.
I really enjoyed listening to it and I would highly recommend it.
It can be read as a stand alone.
