Publisher's Summary

It seemed pretty simple.
Cater an event on the island of Kauai
For wealthy businessmen
And then spend some time surfing and sunbathing.
Wrong!
When the beautiful Asian talk show hostess,
The wife of their client,
Is targeted for murder,
There goes the Hawaiian vacation! 

When Dani and Arthur agree to cater a special dinner party in Kauai, they plan on doing nothing afterward but show Anna, Dani’s 10-year-old niece, how to surf and snorkel. It didn’t quite work out that way. 

They’re thrust into the investigation of the attempted murder of their host’s high-profile wife. His resort compound, where he and his wife live, is impenetrable, so who would have had access to her bedroom and her pillbox? 

Sit back and take an armchair trip to Hawaii while Dani and Arthur search for a motive - and the person who wanted to kill the host’s beautiful wife!

Fun traveling cozy mystery series

Murder in Kauai is the 2nd in the Chef Dani Rosetti mystery series by Dianne Harman. I love this series because Dani and Arthur travel to exotic locales to prepare special and lavish dinners for her wealthy clients. Along the way, they solve mysteries and sometimes murders! The characters are realistic and likable and make a lot of great food (recipes included!). The narration by Anna Wheeler is also great and she added to the enjoyment of the story. I feel like I traveled without leaving the house!

Vacation fun

Dani has been hired to cater an event on the island of Kauai for a wealthy businessman. Arthur is going with her as well as Dani’s niece Anna. They are looking forward to some vacation fun while they are there. But it isn’t long before they find out that their client’s wife is the target of an attempted murder and they are thrown into another investigation. There goes their hopes of nothing but rest and relaxation! The characters were fun together and the whole story was a very enjoyable cozy mystery. I really enjoyed the narration of the audiobook.

book 2

This didn't have all the drama and danger the previous book , but I enjoyed following along. Mildly suspenseful. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was okay.

An armchair trip to Hawaii

Another easy light hearted mystery to solve, with no dead bodies. This is the first book in this series that I have listened to but it is a fun, quick listen that flows along nicely with out taxing the brain keeping track of who everybody is. Perfect for a cozy mystery. The author went with something different when introducing the suspects, you were told who they were as part of a guessing game, then had a snippet of why they didn't want to attend the party before going back to the main characters. I think this worked well because you didn't get to meet them all in the story, despite them being suspects and there alibi's were provided by other people. The plot was simple but I loved the location, Hawaii features in so many tv shows that I had no problem picturing it and understanding the little nuances that make it special, like the receiving of the flower lei.
When Dani receives an invite the cater a party on Hawaii for a rich business man and his partners, she takes along her niece Anna and husband Arthur to have a once in a life time holiday. The party goes off with out a hitch but just as they are about to relax and enjoy the sun and surf, the business man's wife asks for there help. When introduced Arthur had asked a lot of security questions about the exclusive resort and when her life is threatened she turns to when someone tampers with her pills. The only people who could get anywhere near her bedroom are her husband, the staff or there guests. Can Dani and Arthur find out how before it turns deadly?
The narrator was okay but I did find in some places her delivery was a little bit flat.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
